Jobless after Yahoo

Yahoo had come to NIE for campus yesterday.

I wasn't prepared, so couldn't even make it past the first round.

But I got a cool t-shirt for answering a (damn-simple) question.

Now that I am jobless, I was reading my friend's blogs and came across this one: (Had to answer 40 questions(!!!) to get this one!)

So different yet so similar

We are all so different, yet so similar. And remember, we are one of the best known groups in CS.

And that is what we call “THE ATTITUDE OF GAGS”(Gautham, Arun, Ganaraj, Shetty).

Nearing the end of it…

We are nearing the end of our first tenure at the IBM campus. And we have learnt a lot here. I liked the training a lot.

It is hard to believe that we have been here for about 1 and a half months. Boy, time does pass by very fast.

Some things worth mentioning are the co-operation that we got from people around; the environment was superb. We were treated just like any other employee. Specially, our mentor is a really cool guy. And ya, we shouldn't forget – we went for team lunch twice with our team. 🙂 We even had a round of bowling. We were allowed to attend team meetings. And we were asked to present in front of the team. What's more, all this we did in addition to learning new technologies and learning IBM products. The IBM intranet is great. It is supposed to be an award-winning intranet.

I have to attend classes now. 🙁 But this is our last semester in college, so better make the most of it. In future, we will never get to attend classes (or bunk it).

My first weekend

Weekends are something great and looked forward to in software companies. Although we have been here for 2 weeks now, this is the first weekend we had for ourselves since the last weekend, we had to go back to Mysore to attend the IBM interview.

I therefore didn't want to waste it and so slept the whole day!!!

Back to work…

After a very hectic week-end, I am now back to the Golden Towers to continue our project.

I am now placed in IBM and that is what is a real relief.

The interview was fine. The moment they came to know that I was doing a project at IBM, they stopped interviewing me! That was cool.
