XII - 82.2%
UG - 8.1
XAT - 97.97
Work experience: IT/ 31 months
GD topic: Globalization is good for workers and their rights.
GD: Only 9/10 people showed up and the discussion lasted for 20 mins. The focus was majorly on Globalization so I tried to bring the focus back to the core of impact on workers and their rights, a couple of times. Group didn't reach a consensus but were all inclined towards the ill effects of globalization on workers' rights. All three profs, were making notes about the discussion quite diligently.
Professor's description in brief: P1(L): Finance Prof. P2(M): GM Prof P3(R): Marketing prof
Personal Interview experience:
P2 came in the waiting hall, and escorted me to the interview room.
I handed my Certificates file over to P1, and a docket of my recent achievements, including an interview in a newsletter, on the top of the stack.
He starts smiling, and shows to P3- "See he has brought so many nice things to show you!" - All smile. Me contemplating, if it was sarcasm or an appreciation.
P3: So Devansh, Did you have your breakfast?
Me: No, sir. I woke up around 7:30, so quickly got ready and came to the venue by 8:30.
P3: Oh, did u come from far?
Me: No, I'm staying here in a hotel in CP, came to Delhi for the interview.
P3: Okay. Where did you come from?
Me: Mumbai sir. (I had my SP interview the day before, couldn't tell that to the prof.)
P3: So why did you not give your interview in Mumbai?
Me: Sir, I would have but when we first filled the form I gave the preference as Delhi. And when the calls came in, we were not given an option to give the preference again, so I had to come to Delhi to give the interview.
P3: Ohh Okay. So Tell me Devansh, How was the GD?
Me: (I gave it a thought: PAUSE) GD was good sir. There were many opinions and perspectives about the topic. It was a rich experience with everyone chipping in with their points, and it was a learning experience. Although we could have reached a consensus, since the topic demanded us of providing a definite viewpoint.
P3: What according to you could have been better in the GD?
Me: I think that we could have focused more on Rights of the workers. We digressed a few times, which I tried to bring back (all profs nod in unison) and stick to the topic.
P3: You made a point regarding (some point in the GD, which I did not make).
Me: No sir, I didn't make that point. (Prof strikes something out from the GD sheet he had). I made a point regarding Solar Panels and how it is effecting our industry.
P3: okay, tell me how?
Me: Told about the US dumping old technology in India, and Indian indigenous industries are suffering because of that.etc etc. Therefore, globalization is affecting some Indian industries.
P3: Do you think people had better points than you had in the GD?
Me: Yes, sir.
P3: (Amazed at my response!!) They HAD better points???
Me: Yes, sir, a few points were better than mine.
P3 Does something on the sheet again.
Meanwhile P1 had read my documents file and handed it over to P3. P2 still staring.
P1: So Devansh , you had this subject in your Graduation, Mobile Communications.
Me: Yes sir I had.
P1: So tell me how many towers are required to detect the location of a single mobile phone?
Me: (I did not recollect any such thing being taught and so answered honestly) No sir, I can't recall.
Asks one more question, I replied the same.
P1: You don't remember BST, MST, anything?(asks very politely)
Me: No sir can't recall.
P1: okay. No problem( in a comforting tone). Do you remember Standard Deviation?
Me: Yes Sir.
P1: You have this paper and pen in front of you. Take as much time as you need, use the paper and pen, and give us an application of standard deviation as an HR Manager.
Me: (while hovering the pen over the paper) Sir I can tell you an example of SD. I read a case about Dominos in USA, where workers showed deviation from their expected job duties.
On listening to the case, P2 sat back, shook his head in affirmation and relaxed. Seemed he was privy of the case too.
P1: But this is an outlier example, tell us something more specific.
Me: I start hovering again on the paper
P1: okay probably its been long, when u studied this. Do you know what is mean and Median?
ME: Yes sir I do.
P1: use the paper and pen, tell us what is Mean and Median, there definition and one application of each as an HR Manager.
ME: (while writing on the paper) Sir, Mean is a simple average.(P1 Nods).
P3 interjects: Average of what?
Me: Sir, average of the data set at hand. P3 nods. And median is the middle value when this data set is sorted in ascending order.
P1: okay you know what is mean and median. Now one application of each.
Me: (After drawing and writing a few things on paper) Sir mean can be used in Talent Acquisition and median can be used while deciding compensation and benefits.
Suppose we have 20 teams in our organization. We ask each team for their employee requirements, some give 8 some give 3 etc etc. We find a mean of around 4-5. So we would have to hire 80- 100 people. More specifically around 90.
Suppose we hire from different categories of institutes. Cat A, B, C, D. and we have a median salary in mind, say 8 lakhs. So we can decide packages below 8 lakhs in cat C, D and above 8 lakhs in A,B. so that we hire talent within our estimated budget.
Median is a better example of showing how good an institute is doing in terms of placements or how good packages are from a company, but not mean, because median value actually gives the number of people above and below that value, but not mean.
P1: Yeah yeah. Ok Okay!
P3: How Globalization is actually affecting the rights of the workers.
Me: Sir, I read an article a few days ago, it gave an example of a worker in unorganized sector, who was made to work for 12 hours a day. Now a normal working day, is for 8 hours(All nod) and while he should be getting an overtime for 4 hours he is working but he is not. This is happening because, the owner of the establishment is maximizing the use of the machinery and labor, because he has to compete with products from international market, virtue globalization, and consequently the rights of the workers are being exploited.
P2: Devansh, 31 months in IT, tell us one day, that you would like to remove from your life.
Me: started narrating an incident.
P2: Cuts me short, you have only 30 secs
I replied in short, and (me and my team on stage) were subjected to a lot of jeering.
P2: Just because you were subjected to a lot of jeering you want to remove that from your life.
Me: Umm, sir it was the most embarrassing moment, and nothing else of that sort happened so I would like to remove that.
P2: Okay.(sits back)
P1: So you are a Competent Leader(Toastmasters). Tell one quality a good leader must have, according to you?
Me: Vision. I believe that vision is the most important thing, because if a leader does not have vision he would not be able to utilize his resources at its best. Be it Human resources or other, he would not be able to do justice until he has vision.(P1 Nodding all through).
P1 passes the baton to others, P3 smiles, we are done.
P2: do you have any question for us?
Me: Yes sir. Since XLRI do not have any club, namely Toastmasters........
P2: (Cuts me short) I am sorry Devansh but a man of your credentials, should not say a thing like that. We do have a club (some name).
Me: Like Toastmasters?
P2: (proudly) a step better than that.
Me: That's great sir. But my question was that XLRI does not have a Toastmasters club, so if I intend to start one, so what kind of support can I expect from the institute.
P2: Okay, if you have ambitions like that, then XLRI provides a great platform for that.
All: that's all Devansh. Don't Forget to collect your Files. It was nice talking to you. Don't send in the next candidate, we 'll call ourselves in a while.
Thanks all around. While leaving the room, I saw P2 pointing a
finger towards me and talking to P1.
