hey ppl
i had my tiss interview yesterday and sad to say it was a huge disappointment.
i mean they made us wait from 8 in the morning for the whole day and then spoke to us for a just 10 mins.
i wonder how they are going to judge us for 70 marks in such a short span.
well anyways
best of luck to everyone

may the best get in!

and may they not regret after doing so!!

hey lil
by the time my interview turn came,the panel of gango and upadhya were again fresh,since they had a lunch break.my no. was 28 on the list,so there were about 25 to go after me.the mood was quite jolly in the room.actually i was not really harrassed by the panel except for a few questions.yes a girl named neha was called abour an hour before me, and she said that upadhya was in particular very hostile towards her.i really do not know wht these guys are looking for in a candidate. anyways lets hope we all make it through.

hey nilanjan
u had ur int on the same day as i did
mine was at 11.30
somehow now wen i look back i can just see the futility of the interview....my int was good by i did fail to understand the purpose.....as the hod kept asking me directions for places in my city
how was the general mood till ur time came and how many ppl were left aft u?

im just waitin in anticipation for the final call............

Hi all ....

This is my contribution....

Essay : India shinning ( But i wrote Shining. Confirmed with a prof that it was indeed shining and it was a spelling mistake !!!)

GD: Infrastructure: The missing link to the economic development of India ( Topic was too good... some people in my grp had their fundas in the right place...5 people from my GD grp were called for the interview !!) They had told us initially tht people who would be dominating would get negative points but a person from my grp who had made the GD miserable for most of us was also called for the interview.

Interview: Asked abt my name, college, company details, what do u understand by human rights?, who is the HR head of ur company?, what are your company HR policies, do u want to go abroad?, how do u see urself 2 yrs down the line?, how did u come to know abt tiss? Describe the work tht u do.

Thats all i remember now 😁 will add more as and when i remember....

but the whole experience was very good.... some people are screwed badly and some others have a good time....
There is no way of judging their mood.... or wht they r looking in a candidate...

Suggestions are.... be thorough with all details u put in..... and be honest coz the panel is very knowledgeble !

Good Luck

hi guys

8 june 2004 report time 830

even though i am pretty much late for posting my interview exp of tiss but hope this would help next yrs aspirants

no quant/eu qs this time
the intro of tiss started at 9 essay topic at 10 three topics were
1 anamoly of secularism
2 intellectual property rights in india
3cooperation is the basic essence of business( not exactly the same but something on these lines)
GD topic that we chose was : long term starategy is a thing of past
time 2+16+2 to choose b/w 2 topic n discuss panel of 10 ppl
a few were new to gds n a lot in my batch (despite sitting in GDS) were dumbos

gd was ok i gave out various directions to it

essay i went on extremely rightwinger n wrote on anamoly of secularism ( trashed all parties except bjp+ VHP)
still made it to second round(at least there is someone in world who can understand my handwriting , I myself cant do tht)
i had got thru IIFT so just flaunted that
interview was hectic 79 ppl in day for a single panel of Dutta n Gangopadhyay
not a gen situation at TISS but it happened this time

i was called in at 1200

2 mnths call center, sale, hr?????????(whr u wanna go )
why HR
diff b/w HRM n HRD

whileDutta was asking all these qs in details gango was just out to shoot small qs like college school ( bth r damn good they know exact location of my college in DU that over half of DU hasnt even heard of)
then i understood the trap n gave them myIIFT trap
told them i have to do MBA this yr with HR( despite their claim of producing HR managers withouts MBA)

was asked abt various calls
gave all the answers in a cool way

still campus is great i overstayed for 2 daysafter interview and ppl are fundu

a good place to go for ( even if u doint get thru)
