A follow up post
due to the constrant messaging and tagging on pagalguy...
Profile: B. TECH + 2.5 years IT experience. Please suggest with rationale :
I have got an overwhelming response from people on an earlier post where I had given some dos and donts of how a B school student should go about life there. Many people have requested me to mentor them on an ongoing basis and I am inclined to look at this possibility.
If you are interested in availing of my mentoring program for the first 2 terms in your B school, send me a PM with your detailed profile. I will get back to you and we'll see how it can work. As I have limited bandwidth I will be able to do this for only a few people. Look forward to hearing from some of you on this.
Can anyone send the hostel room pics for boys. And pls explain the infrastructure and food of the hostel mess
This message is for all the people who have got selected in a B school and are starting off in an exciting 2 year journey that will change your lives forever.
Having been part of the same journey 3 decades back from IIMC, meeting and mentoring several B school aspirants and graduates in this period and lately reliving the journey through my daughter's BM program in XLRI, I thought I could give some generic advise to the new starters.
1. Most people join B school for prospects and a great job. However, do not get obsessed with it and make everything else secondary to this pursuit. You need to go through the process and maximize your knowledge and skills - the jobs will follow.
2. Learn to communicate well and present yourself in an adequate manner. This is the most important factor which will stand you in good stead over your career.
3. Do not believe anyone who tells you that Grades are not important. They most definitely are - many companies shortlist on that basis and they are always looked at by the interview panel.
4. Next to Grades your projects and participation in any committee etc is important. Make sure you are doing as much as you can.
5. It does not matter if you are coming from a humble background or poor academics - you are here because you deserve to be here. Try to do your best and you will be surprised at the change you see in yourself.
6. Do not be complacent or arrogant because of your earlier stellar background. You are among equals here and if you slip up things can go wrong very quickly. Take each day as it comes and try to do your best.
7. Do not be psyched by this issue of PROFILE. You are what you are and you can try to improve. Companies want to take people who will want to do the job and not just some Profile etc.
8. Finally even your job at the end is just a starting point. All companies will not come to your institute, your goal is to try and get the best job possible. At a later date all companies are open to you.
Feel free to PM me for any inputs or advise you may be seeking. I wish you all the very best in the coming 2 years and your future careers :-)
