Hello and a very good evening to all my readers.
first, to all my well wishers, i’m still on earth, and still living a happy life, but just have been too busy with exams and projects, haven’t got enough time to write/edit/search a blog post for my audience.
today, i’m here to share my experience of my first interview at SCMHRD ( symbiosis center of management and human resource development.)
as most of you may know, i’ve appeared for cat, xat, and snap exams this year, getting call from 1 of top20 management institute was certainly very exciting for me.
with a bit of preparation for gd/pi, and hope to ace out the first interview, booked tickets and went to pune to attend the overall process on first feb.
everything was well organized, right from getting registration, to document verification, filling checklist, all was well explained and volunteers was always ready to help.
that gave a good start, but from here, things didn’t went as i’ve expected.
first, because i was listed as a ph( physically handicap ) candidate, i wasn’t suppose to clear the gd round, and was directly sent for personal interview.
maybe the management of SCMHRD was trying to be helpful, but no thanks.
we, differently able candidates believes in equal competition, and is ready to face equal challenges just like our sited companions.
i didn’t spoke anything at the venue since i didn’t wanted to act over smart and spoil my first life time opportunity, and stayed quiet.
then, i was sent to some other section where the senior management member ( name not disclosed for prevention of personal offence ) was taking the interview.
he looked at my CV, asked few questions, and was being positive so far.
but then, this is life, not a fairytale, where everything goes fine.
he told me that he prefers me to do 1 year job and then appear again.
he said, ” you do have a very good knowledge and i really appreciate that. but i’ve seen peoples like you who don’t have any work experience, terribly fails in first semester in most of the subjects. i believe you should come again next year. ”
i’m sorry, but i beg to differ.
” peoples like you?”
i didn’t expected such hasty,non logical generalization from such a senior management member of such a reputed management institute.
i’m really disappointed and depressed by such comment.
if other peoples, with enough knowledge and a willingness to do MBA can join as a fresher, why can’t i?
why discrimination and generalization?
now the results are due on 16th feb, and i’m not sure of what future have for me, but,incidences like this, hampers the feeling of equality, and d-motivates.
that’s all what i had to say for now.
