Got my job

Got a job with a management consulting firm. The highest INR salary offer so far on the campus. The managing partner (CEO in India) took us out for dinner after the offers were made. Feels terrific.

The total offers on campus on day 1 seem to be around 100+. way to go for ISB.

Watch this space for more news.

Congratulations MAN! That's awesome. I hope you get time to reflect on just how far you've come instead of just what's ahead. You deserve a big pat on the back!

Way to go! What's your role in the company going to be?

Congratulations Vijay!

And this may sound kinda cheezy...but I read almost all blogs written by the people in your batch because I am an applicant. I knew that amongst all the bloggers, if there was someone who would land a job on the first day, it was going to be you. Presumably you obviously really like it because you didnt care much for the placement season and placed more emphasis on working your own network which is quite commendable. So, congratulations once again and I hope our paths will cross in the future....

I guess we will have to wait for the details...

Good on ya!

Hearty congratulations Vijay! You are not only a great source for inspiration through your blogging but also a role model through your achievements. I am sure this is just a begining.

itheabsolute said...

hi friends

thanks a lot. apart from efforts, there is also an element of luck (read random factors / epsilon factors) at play. it is about peaking to your potential when it matters most. i think i was at my best yesterday.

For guys of CO 2007

i will be around during orientation time. hope to make some presentation on my learnings. and we will have lotsa offline discussions. you must be having exciting times waiting for the date of entry. believe me, it is going to be fun here. having said that, should say that placement season is frightening too.

all the best.....

thanks &
cheers
