I don’t know what the big deal is…I really don’t…this placements business I mean. Everywhere, there are people scurrying from one meeting to another preparing for their interviews like their lives depended on it. Then there’s me…watching my 3rd movie since term ended on Friday and got done with most assignments. Take today for example…spent the first half watching Australia pummel a hapless Lanka, something like what a heavyweight champion would do to a welter-weight…who’s been hogtied…and yeah, the champ’s just been told that the l’il fella’s been making merry with the champ’s wife when he’s away turning people’s faces into pulp with his fists. ouch! than made a pretence of working on a couple of applications that are due tomorrow…then there was music…a nap…surfing…TV…all the good stuff.
The fact that I’m still wondering if there’s a correlation between the amount of prep and the quality of shortlists/interviews/jobs, that pretty much explains why there are people who’ll land the plum jobs and they ain’t me J With less than a week to go before the first interviews begin, a barrage of short–listed/not-short–listed emails is expected to hit mailboxes starting tomorrow. For all this bluster about being all chilled out, am myself kinda curious to see how I react once I’m aware that I have an interview slated for so-and-so date and time where I’ll be asked to convince some absolute strangers in the span of an hour or so why I’m their biggest find of the season. Will I overheat and explode at the first sign of stress or will I be able to stay composed and represent myself with some justice…only the next few days will tell. Oh boy…and how J (in case you noticed, am discounting the possibility of not being short–listed at all…if you haven’t already figured…am an optimist 😉
