My First Job!!!

So!! Finally I can count myself among the people who have got a job in their hands!! Feeling so so excited!! Had I written this post earlier, the excitement would have been triple of what it is right now. All thanks to my idiotic computer because of which i had wait for so long to write about my first job. Let me try this way... like a diary entry...

11 October 2010
A company called Nsys Designs was to come for campus recruitments. Not many applications were expected as not many people fulfilled the criteria to apply for this company. There must have been around 20-25 applications and they included some of the best minds from Electronics and Communication!! For me this was just another company that was coming for placements, maybe just another day of not clearing the written, maybe just another day of going back without a job and maybe just another day to think about what next. The best part was this company was too close to my place and somehow I wanted to give my best for this one. We had two papers for the written exam-Aptitude and Technical. I managed to clear the written, thanks to a misunderstanding regarding negative marking because of which i attempted too many questions!! Apart from me, there were 11 people who cleared the written. Shortly after the result, we had the GD round and all the 12 people had to speak together. This was something really unexpected. Because of too many people, it was really difficult to speak. Although I managed to speak around 3-4 times, I could feel the symptoms of sore throat after that!! Surprisingly, no one was eliminated in the GD round and all the 12 people were shortlisted for the interview that was to start after an hour. My name was the sixth in the shortlist but again surprisingly I was the first person to appear for the interview as people who had their names above me were not there when the interviews had to begin. Strangely, I was not nervous. The lady from HR deptt started with questions about me, my qualities and my aspirations. For the technical part, I was able to answer most of the questions from digital electronics. Overall, the interview was good. I guess apart from my technical knowledge, I impressed them with my personality, communication skills, wit and confidence. The last interview was over by 7 PM. The result was ready within few minutes. Three names were called out and mine was the last. The moment I heard my name, I could feel my heart beating loudly!! Finally!! I was selected!! Whoa!! That moment was like a dream. The joy of feeling how it felt was ecstatic. I actually took sometime to realise that it was all true. I could feel my hands shaking while signing the joining letter. I was proud of myself as it was indeed an achievement for me. Soon I was flooded with calls and messages, thanks to facebook and google groups. Finally... i had got my first job!! And so, 11th October 2010 will always be a memorable day.....
