Best day of my life

July 21, 2009

I will consider today as one of the best days in my life and why not. This is the day I have got my job before 3 years. When I have joined in the college I never had a slightest dream of getting a job and also don’t know which are companies in the market will recruit us. My knowledge level is, not able to differentiate TVS and TCS… as I have mentioned in one of my previous post. We are the 3rd set of students of our college, so not even a not single batch of students went out to tell how the placements are and also the outside world of college. We also didn’t expected any campus interviews with none of companies came to our campuses in the 2 years we have seen.


But out of nothing, I have heard the news of the company in which comes to recruit and it’s happening in other college. So kind of off-campus for us. College opened by July 10th. From that time, all the talk was about this only. In all the classes we started to practice for the interview. And the day came on July 20th.  We all went there just to see 1300 others competing with us. We believed even if they pick 1 out of 3 or4 us, they will select 300 to 400 members. We 4 people (Me, Mr.SN, Mr.RS and Mr.PR) all planned to go there by bike. Mr.SN and Mr.PR brought the bikes. It’s a travel of about 40 to 50 kms in the way of our college. Even though the college bus goes in that way, considering the time we have to return if the interview goes longer we went by bike.

I didn’t said about the interview in my home fearing what my parents will say if I fail in the interview and their advices before the interview. So I have taken shirt to change and shaving set along with me, if at all one-to-one interview on that day itself. We reached the place by 8’o clock itself. We have checked all our certificates and also looked into some of the questions. By 11, we are all seated to take the examinations. By 12, they have issued the question papers and we started to write the answers. By 1:30 exam is finished and they have said result will be announced by 4 or 5. Now I started to think, if I fail means I have to tell a suitable lie to escape. We had the lunch and reached the suditorium by 4 waiting for the results. By 5:30, some people from the company has came and shown a PPT about the company. The campus, the facilities they have and also the company revenues.

Then by 6:30 they have announced the heart-breaking news of, they have selected only 179 out of 1300+. We thought it’s better to leave at that point. They slowly started to announce the names of the person who are selected by college wise. The number is already passed 100, still there is no sign of calling of names from our college. By 120 or 130, they called my name. I couldn’t believe that. Out of the 12 names announced from my college, mine also one. And all of my friends congratulated me and surely one of the best moments in life. It’s pouring down heavily outside and we started to home. I can’t forget that rainy evening in bike with Mr.SN. I came to my home by 10:30 PM, only to know that my parents know I have went to interview from one of the lecturer, who is a daughter of my father’s friend. They all happy about my clearing of my first round and didn’t given a single bit of advice for next day. And this is the day, they started to keep faith in me that I can manage myself without much advices.

Next day went smoothly and I have been selected as one of the 145 persons selected to give an offer letter. And the first person, I have said this, is to Mr.SN. There are many helped me for my first interview. I don’t know how to thank them all. Of them, Mr.SN has given the aptitude book to me as he said that he was finished, given money to take photo as I couldn’t ask in my home, went together for to that interview and also lot of things.. if I start to say I fear I may miss something. And a thanks would be a very simple thing to say… I have no words with me.

Then there is Mr.HB who has made a Resume for me in a single night, Mr.VK who has given it in the morning of interview, Mr.RS who got the photo for me the day before of interview, Mr.GT from whom I have took a pen forcibly for the interview…. I like to thank them all. Without them I am nothing. They are the reason for whatever I have got now after college…

Thanks Friends!!!!!
