Placements and other stuff...

Its placement season, so how could I resist writing about it?

Paranoia has set on campus, and you can see instances of people losing their minds and giving up on prep for one whole minute, or sometimes 2, depending on the level of stress and madness...
But if you give up on prep for more than that, you will see horrified faces around slowly shaking their heads in deep disapproval..trying to say that even God cannot forgive the sin of not prep'ing'.

Ofcourse there are the really smart ones too, who just need to prep in order to prove that they jumped from the helicopter to save a wild boar from the jaws of a tiger in the wilds of Africa(as stated on the resume).

Resume reminds me of Action words.These are small ominous words which are supposed to spice up the recruiter's life by making him laugh and hence get you a chance of being called. Like this:
'Awarded' the award, or 'researched' the research paper, though it gets sticky when you feel like mentioning that you went rafting....and end up with something like ' drowned the raft and being a team player, drowned all the people too'...

Which leads to the fact that all 400+ people on campus are team players and have amazing team spirit....we would love to request the recruiters to interview us in teams too...that way we perform 'best', though ofcourse sucking up to the recruiter is a solo activity much to our displeasure....but we do what we have to do....

Another phenomenon, the PPTs....where people ask really tactful questions like 'what if A acquires you...?' or 'I dont think you are valuing your acquisitons properly?'or better still, 'Y are attrition rates so high in your company?'...Ahh...the intelligence of mankind...

Exciting times ahead, and things are just getting better and illuminating by the minute....now only if I could get Him to forgive me for wasting time on the blog instead of prep...
