P4: Male Prof


P3: Tell me about yourself ( He took my name and asked the question)

A: As he took my name I started from my hometown. Then P4 stopped. He told me to start with my name, hometown, background and all. I said " I apologize but sir has already taken my name thats the reason I dint say my name"

P4: oh even though you say

A: I am not sure sir, there might be a little deviation.

P3: Yes, there is a minor error but chalega. (Yes ,he said chalega). I will excuse you for that.

P2: What changes does an ERP did to SCM?

A: Was saying that without an ERP SCM would look like ....

P2 stopped: I am not asking the advantages of ERP, I have ERP in place but what it helped me for SCM (I could not understand his question)

A: Again was beating around the bush (p2 seems unsatisfied, here where i feel i lost some points)

P4: What is your role in the company

A: Told

P3: Ok we are done, Thank you

A: I felt like not standing up but some how stood up and took the file and said thank you in low voice and came out

Misc.: GD was good, but PI I feel that I could have done better. Hoping for a convert but very less chances

My interview was good and went on for about 10 15 minutes. As I have about 4.5 years of work ex in IT the questions were more work related. There were few questions from mobile communication as I had Telecommunication background. However I was not asked to explain anything in particular or draw anything on board and present any explanation. 

Does this mean that my chances of getting selected are close to NIL??

Topic: PSUs are white elephants??

People Present : 11

Time: 2 mins to think and jot down points + 15 mins to discuss + 2 mins to conclude

Brief Snapshot of Discussion

The discussion started off on the wrong foot. Rather than using the metaphor to form a concrete comparison, the discussion turned towards the methods or ways to improve PSUs( at least what I thought) I pitched in quite late and was able to speak for a minute or so(nothing concrete  ). Overall, the discussion was quite haphazard and even the panelists looked disinterested.


M1: Tell me about yourself

me: told

M1: I believe your organization has tie-ups for Executive MBA?

me: told that I need 5 years of work-ex and a particular designation for it.

M1: How many years will it take? 

me: 4.5 approximately.

M1: So you want to do it faster?

me: I would rather say I'm trying to accelerate my career

M1: You mentioned terms like resilience and team management. You already know things You are already a manager. Why an MBA then.

me: I know things means I have been doing my job well. But the my educational background doesn't quite help me understand the business process intricacies.

M2: What subjects do we teach here at NITIE?

me: named 6-7 subjects

M2: How is an MBA from NITIE different from an MBA from other colleges?

me: Told that I was not sure but would take a guess. Told about industrial bias and focus on manufacturing.

M3: Which other calls? 

me: told.
