PLACED

WOW!! placed..that word feels like music to my ears...i have been placed..i am no longer unemployed..i belong to a company called Cognizant Technology Solutions...from an absolutely jobless dog one second i have a become a Program Analyst Trainee..it is a euphoric feeling.. i mean it might not be offering the greatest salary or might not be the best company...to me being placed is all that matters..i have this feeling that somehow these three years of engineering studies have paid off(though deep down inside me i know that they havent..i m still as ignorant as i was about three years back..only improvement being the fact that i write stories more efficirntly in my exam papers thanks to anna university!!!)..nowadyas with the huge boom in the S/W market it is not all that tough to get a job, with almost evryone making a job with a minimum salary of 2 per annum it is not such a great thing to have a made a job but i have this peaceful and relaxed feeling..and personally i guess making a job is just a matter of luck..u need loads of luck..u need to get into the right interviewing panel, get the right amount of questions correct in ur aptitude(some companies have an upper cut off and if that is crossed u dont get thru the aptitude..so some ppl actually underperform to get thru the aptitude)..the fact that a moron like me has been placed makes it very clear that it is indeed a matter of luck and also gives u a fair idea about the kind of job market out there...never in my wildest dreams had i thought that i would be placed in the first company..well i guess i just have to thank god for this absolutely brilliant stroke of luck...now i am just gonna sit back and relax and totally enjoy the final year of my engineering!!

Okie, Accepted u shud hav oodles of luck to sneak in, but interviewers are not dumb to accept you for wot you r not..probly, i had the same feeling when i made a job too..rather was wondering why infy tuk me in first place..as i knew only the alphabet C n not the techy one ;)
Jus that we campuss elects refuse to c the world on the other side..There are 3.6 lakhs engineeering graduates of which only 35% find themselves a job..so..it was not jus luck shruthiii...blame 60% of it on ur stars..rest on wot u had inculcated from your school to college..

The college you study itself gaurantees your placement. No matter, how brilliant you are, if you have studies in a remote college, you have to struggle a lot to geting placed.

Any how, welcoming you to my company... probably it might take another year for you to join, and who knows, you might get another company better than this.

colleges and luck are only secondary to your hard work and intelligence, if you have been selected thats not because you are in a reputed college, thats because you have made the most of being in that reputed college and earned yourself a place in the corporate world! So for that, kudos to you and Congratulation on this first step towards success! Good luck.

eeeeeeeeeeeks!! Shruthi do me a favor. This is addressed directly to you. Senthil is "welcoming" you to his company (er.. literally and figuratively).. Well this is the answer to the question you keep asking me as to which company you should join. The answer is
DO NOT JOIN THE COMPANY WHICH HAS RECRUITED SENTHIL!!! I dont want you coming to me later and calling me "Didi shall we give pat the kitten and give it four cups of milk"??????
