How to get placed ? (My Placement Story)

Finally I am writing this one. One of the objective of my blog is to write and share lessons learnt. I wonder why I did not write this since so long. As the post title suggests, this post is about how I got placed through campus. Yeah, I got placed πŸ˜€

Placement is one of the most expected and common outcome of a college degree and majority students desire a placement from college. Some people are ready for any placement offer, well some are very particular about the profile, I fall in the second category,I wanted my profile which will satisfy my love for project management. Β Many companies visited the campus and went with selected students, but Β I was waiting for the profile to match my need.

Another company came, I was very much excited for the day, I was not at all worried. I had full confidence on myself that I will get what I deserve.

And as any other important day, I was clicking pictures and wanted to capture every moment.

Be excited for the day:Β 

Yes, be super excited for the day, yay placements. Be happy that you have come to this point of your college life that you are eligible to take a placement from college. But being excited doesn’t mean being nervous.

Dress your part:

Many think of this as the last step in preparation, but it is very essential to dress appropriately. Wear colours which suit you, and also which are lucky for you. I am a strong believer of luck, and I usually wear pink for exams and interviews. πŸ˜‰

Β Be yourself:

Just be yourself during the process, Do not fake up, even if you feel like keeping quiet and being a good listener during the group discussion. ( I was just a listener in the GD round). The whole point is to be yourself.. that’s it. Β Even during the interview, I was just being myself, went with a positive attitude, showing my love and inclination for project management.

Don’t lose the smile:

The process can be very lengthy and it becomes a long day for the candidates. But we shouldn’t lose our smile and be patient. I was taking selfies during the waiting time to ensure that I don’t lose my smile and charm πŸ˜‰

Keep zero expectations:

Positive or negative both expectations hurt, so it is better not to keep any expectations and wait for the results . Once, they are out, there are three ways to deal with them : regret it, or change it, or accept it. I have finally accepted the result πŸ™‚

Everyone has their own learnings and a placement story, what’s yours ?

NOTE: The points are purely the viewpoints of author and as experienced by her. This post does not guarantee placement.

Straight from my heart,
