Ya, the placement week is here. While more than 50% of the batch is already placed, I haven’t been able to make the cut. The actual process had started a week ago, with most companies not shortlisting me and a few just chucking me after the group process.
Now, I have been able to suggest and motivate people who weren’t going anywhere as well. But, last two days with over 18 companies not really interested in me has just made me feel the reality. I have just lost that positive attitude with which I could help others, because I can’t help myself either.
I had joined this B School assuming that I was good at certain things, I studied a few topics assuming that I can do a good job at them. However, with two days of disappointment I believe that I assumed wrong things. All my preferred organizations have come and gone without me. Now it doesn’t matter when and in which place I get to, I have to just accept what I receive.
It isn’t only me facin this situation, there are others too. Some blame the system and others evaluate the ones who have been selected. It doesn’t matter to me who got selected, I am no judge of other people. The bottom line to me is that I am still waiting. Tomorrow I would go back and try again, maybe get selected too, but I know I won’t be happy because it wouldn’t be my own efforts which would take me there, it would also be the pity of others underperforming so that I can make the cut.
