long long time eh??

hmm...long time eh.....seems like...a long time...chronologically just a few days.....

lol....sorry for being away but then its time for choosing the company one wants to work for after an MBA....last one week has been really really a new experience for me...heres wat the weeks been like

a) made a new friend thru PG...n shes a really kewl person..fun to talk to...tries to cheer u up..when u need it the most.....pretty understanding i believe...thnx...

b) well as i said it was career time at the college...the last week has been a new learning and experience for me...5 days and 6 companies...i made it to the final stages of all the companies but cudnt get thru...didnt knw wat was going wrong..introspected alot...

...an fmcg company in india.....realised they wanted freshers...n i wasnt one...

next...govt psu...one of the best for marketing....some govt rules and regulations related to positive discrimination were adhered to i believe....

next...one of the best IT companies in the country..bloody idiots slotted my interview in their product division...n me being a marketing/systems guy didnt fit their vertical..so another one gone...lol...then came another company..

next....again made it to the final stage..cudnt get thru...in restrospection everyone believed that they wanted ppl for southern region operations so language wud ve played a role..

was kinda lost...full of random thots at this stage...had support of all my frnds...but still didnt knw wat to do...spoke to dad..he said.."Its good that you are going through the struggle at this stage, it's just gonna toughen u up for the future...something better is in store for u..."...these words helped a lot...trust me they did...all my frnds also told me that there wud b sumthing better for me...just be patient n relax...so did all that...

next....an apparel marketing firm came...shortlisted 3 ppl for the interview..i was again one of them but i knew my chances were less than one percent owing to the interview panel that was there(cant be discussed in open)...lol..

next....a new preselection process...cleared it...went for the interview...results came at 1.45am...finally made it thru(no details here please)...felt elated...happy..relaxed...king of the world...came back to my hostel at 3am...thanked everyone..told my folks...friends..everyone i cud...went for a drive in the night..real fast one...didnt realize that my blazer was on the top of the car n it had flown off near the mess..thankfully a frnd had picked it up n returned it in the morning...lol....came back...ate maggi with frnds..it was 4am..n i was hungry...slept at like 4.30am..felt like..


KING OF THE WORLD...

i came..i saw...i fought...felt defeated...rose back from the ashes again...just like a phoenix...and won the battle..

FIGHTERS ALWAYS FIGHT....

been getting bumps for the entire day...damn my butt hurts....lol...
