hey guys,

Thanks for your replies.I am still searching for a naukri 😞 😞
All along I believed that I will make it to a PhD programme.But the debacle @ IIMC,IITM&IISc; and the late start for job search has cost me dearly.
Do keep posting your opinions and good wishes.They spur me up.

Cheers

hey venkat ... try looking at job sites like www.naukri.com , www.jobsahead.com . u can try for faculty in coaching classes like Ims or others or part time lecturership in some college in chennai ... as far as i know , for fpm work ex is very important . all the best

hi venkat...

i thnk lack of workex shall have an effect as u wont probably be able to justify the break in ur career graph...so wht i suggest is tht u keep trying for a job thru job sites, ads in the papers and exhaust whtever contacts u have,working as a part time consultant etc...but do keep trying for a job and dont lose heart

Everything is right in the end if it is not it is not the end...

cheerios

What do I do now?Are there job avenues I have missed other than ads,jobsites,consultants etc.?
I am Planning to write cat again but without a job I am finding it difficult to concentrate.
How much will lack of workex affect my chances of getting into the FPM program of IIMs?
Please give your suggestions.

Hi venkat... Am sorry.. my brush with IIMs & CAT is minimal so.. cant really be of much help on those avenues!! 😃

As u seem to be interested in PHD... why dont u write CAT again...Looks like, u clear the written rounds... try to analyse where u are going wrong during the interview rounds... once u are able to point ur faults.. try working on it!!! Meanwhile... try for a part time faculty or something like that... the confidence a JOB gives is really tremendous... 😃

Have given a very generalistic opinion.. Hope it helps... 😃

Dont lose hope... "This one step -- choosing a goal and sticking to it -- changes everything."
Simbaaaaa

hi venkat
it all depnds on what ur specialisation was in mba and what field u intend to take up.if u are intersted inmarketing say ,then paerhaps some work in marketing might help you.also it is definitelly better if you take a job as you defintely dont prepare 24 hrs a day for cat.but bear in mind to keep a balance in ur work and prepaartion. i dont know much of univ of madras and its mba but surely avery high percentile in cat and ability to correlate your intersts and your back ground will count a lot.in the mean time try getting a job if u believe your profile is low it might help.Also did u consider mailing the profs at the iims .i dont know if it works but people applying for ph.d to us universities do keep in touch with the profs concerned
all the best
dont get diheartened .why u might ebven considera second mba fro a reputed one if u are so inclined
all the best

hi all,
I am venkat from chennai.Have done my BE and MBA(full-time-2004)-dept. of management stidies,madras univ.This is a longish post but please bear with me and give me ur suggestions .
My aim is to do a Phd (Had an FPM iview call from IIMC this year but cud not convert ) The same happened with IIT and IISc. I was thru with the process only by june 1st week.Did not appear for any job interview till then.(wanted to be in academics).So now am without a job.Got a couple of frontline sales jobs-declined it.
There r few opportunities for low profile Bschoolers.Have even applied for lecturer position at a few places.
What do I do now?Are there job avenues I have missed other than ads,jobsites,consultants etc.?
