Anitha: (Smiles and thinks) Initially, I was not interested to explore the career in Tech Mahindra but after some research on the profile offered; their objectives, vision and the projects that me curious and wanted to give it a try. That was how I landed up in Tech Mahindra. To be more specific this company has many verticals which means it has got different projects apart from IT domain, like Aeronautics (company has signed a pact with Russia for BOEING manufacturing as part in Make in INDIA), Mechanical domain (MAHINDRA & MAHINDRA) and various others. It’s big open ocean for several to swim (smiles).

Interviewer: What were the different rounds conducted? Could you also share your experience on training phase?

Anitha: Ya sure! Apart from the initial interview process which is being conducted every year, I would like to throw some more points on the process which are followed after getting into the company.

Firstly, in order to get early date of joining the company will send you modules containing  basic C programming, DBMS, RDBMS, Software engineering, Software testing, UNIX and HTML. A contest will be conducted at various locations and one needs to clear it in order to have advantages which would be like allocation into project at early stage itself. For those who doesn’t clear the contest has to undergo initial training from beginning which was specified in the modules along with extra algorithms.

Secondly, they may even select students based on the engineering background and provide them an opportunity to work related to that field. Before that they will conduct an interview process either one to one or through telephone.

Thirdly, one should grab the opportunity to showcase ourselves at any given point of time, you never know when it might turn out be in your favour.

Interviewer: It looks like a big contest out their to make next move. What is /are take away from the process?

Anitha: It is! I’m glad to have cleared the contest (smiles). At each stage I learnt so many things. Even during training period learnt how to utilise the time. If one wish to learn anything new should go ahead and ask people working in office for the support or help. Instead of sitting idle we could at least watch them work.

Interviewer: Any suggestions for future aspirants?

Anitha: I believe that, “No job is big or small at the end all that matters is what we have learnt, where we are, and what we will be years from now”
