Indian Teachers Salary

Santa Santosh Avvannavar in conversation with Dr. Ritu Chauhan on 𝐭𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐬𝐚𝐥𝐚𝐫𝐲. A seasoned principal who has over 17 years of experience, Dr. Ritu Chauhan takes difficult questions that often educators shy away from. Dr. Ritu feels Indian teachers aren’t paid right and needs a standardisation in the private education sector as much as government schools offer. Dr. Ritu feels this would help teachers to be retained and salary wouldn’t be a reason for hoping! Dr. Ritu Chauhan is currently working as a Principal in Manipal International School Electronic City, Bangalore and Head of Academics in Manipal Academy of Health and Education.

Conflict Management: Simulation Exercise

Lego (Building blocks) are one of the best and affordable tool to understand various business terminologies/ concepts. Students were introduced to ‘conflict’ that one faces because of three factors: lack of trust, too many questions; and lack of clear goal. These factors lead to a ‘Hidden Agenda’. When a conflict arises earlier or later two things are visible: Fear and Failure.

A simulation exercise was conducted to understand the principles behind ‘conflict’ and how one could relate & respond to it?


Kaar Technologies Interview – Alex Jeeva

Dear Readers, Today we have ever active Alex Jeeva, a campus recruited candidate. He is here to share his experience on Kaar Technologies campus drive, how this success meant a lot to him.

(Interviewer is the CEO of QtSTEAMhttp://www.youtube.com/QtSTEAM ; Mentor QtPi Robotics & author of She: Ekla Cholo Re ; BUGman ; He Who Dreams)

Mr Alex Jeeva

Interviewer: Good evening Mr. Alex, tell us about yourself!

Alex:  I’m from Tirpur and presently pursuing final year B.Tech CSE. My short term goal was to find an opportunity to explore a role (job) that would help in utilising my skills to benefit the organisation. And my long term goal is to become a well renowned person in the respective field. I see myself as a honest, adaptable and a good team member. I try to view things positively. Apart from technical and academics; cricket, badminton and listening to music is something I enjoy on regular basis. I have a younger sister pursuing 12th standard and mother taking care of business and family.

Interviewer: Interesting to know that you enjoy multitasking. Let’s move to our next question, why did you choose to apply for Kaar Technologies?

Alex: (Thinks and smiles) I see that the future depends on integrating things which could make objects/system accessible in easiest and effective way. Kaar Technologies is an SAP based software company whose clients are from across the globe. They provide business solutions and make their task easier. This idea of making human effort easier to contribute larger to the society made me choose Kaar. I also think SAP domain is lucrative from a career perspective.

Interviewer: Your views are interesting! What were the different rounds conducted?

Alex: Rounds were Aptitude, GD, Technical cum HR and final round with the Delivery Head of the unit. The aptitude round consisted of 60 questions that had logical, quantitative and business english. I assume about 25% were applicants were shortlisted. The next round was GD with 7 or 8 members in the group. The topic was related to ‘Jio’. The next rounds were stressful because of the continual questions with limited scope to think or to react on the responses/ feedback. The final round was about 50 minutes with interesting scenario thrown to present ideas/views. For example, ‘if you were a team lead and need to answer a client in absence of delivery head on the postponement of the project, how would you handle?’ ; Tell me about SAP, Kaar and its competitors? ; Tell me about your native place.

Mr Alex Jeeva

Interviewer: What is/are your take away from the process?

Alex: It was a good experience interacting the members. I realised that more the questions came, self confidence was getting better. A good preparation on resume and answering the scenarios in best possible way at moment worked it for me.

Interviewer: What are your suggestions for future aspirants?

Alex: Being aware of things happening across the globe and presence of mind could make difference to one during recruitment. Learning beyond academics seemed to have paid for me and I believe it will be others as well. Being confident to express oneself because ‘you know yourself better.’

Interviewer: Thank you Alex for sharing your insights. I hope it will help the readers and aspirants. Wishing you a great life and career with Kaar Technologies.

Alex: (smiles) Thank you too!
