SHE
Blurb: Set in the backdrop of 1990 Calcutta, She is a story about finding one’s own identity in spite of all odds. The story spins around the life of Kusum, a brave heart whose identity is often untitled and blurred; it does not belong anywhere, definitely not under the ‘he’ or ‘she’ bracket, thanks to our social conditioning. Will she be successful in her mission? Find out in She, an utterly absorbing read that derives inspiration from Tagore’s “Ekla Cholo Re” song, which urges everyone to move on despite the fear of abandonment from others.

Shreyas Joshi with Sa(chin) Author of BUGman

The book  has classified chapters as weeks (Week 0 to Week 6). Week 0 – introducing Sa and Sa as two characters as they are the authors respective names, Sachin and Santosh. In this week each one has his story, for example Santosh conveys that grading doesn’t tell ones appearance but talent shows everything were as Sachin conveys that grading is important this helps students to benchmark and get to know about their weaknesses.

Week 1-“Identifying Einsteins”, this means identifying the candidates who are more intelligent. In this week we are going to learn what are the different positions that the company is planning to hire. The team in which Sachin and Santosh are working has Mr.Murthy as their head, whom Santosh dislike. We learn about framework and other technical skills. As Murthy tells in the meeting to take more candidates for the new project junior, senior and architect positions.

Week 2 -“Pantry talkies”,which means the candidates who talk about their families and friends. As Santosh is working from home after the lunch Murthy dials sachin and tells I will join you after five minutes and he asks Santosh to join us because there is a meeting all of a sudden. Santosh dislike unplanned meetings. In this meeting, Murthy enquiry on the status of  CV’s  that were to be shortlisted.

Week 3-“TGIF and weekend work”, on friday Santosh says in excitement thank god its friday (tgif) cannot wait for the weekend. But hardworking Sachin reminds on the hiring task. Sachin inquired do you know three new joinees are going yo join our interview panel. Santhosh asked out of curiosity who are they? Rahul, Tina and Anjali! Three new characters join the fun of BUGman. Murthy discuss on the CV’s and  updates that HR has sent few more on the initial phone screens. Around 6-8 for junior and senior positions and 4 for architect role.

Week 4-“The Day”, Saturday the hiring day for the CV’s. On a lighter note, Santosh asked Sachin whom do you think Rahul loves Tina or Anjali. A quick pat comes from Sachin, “We can get to know by getting the wedding invitation from one of them.” Another such moment when the interview has begun, Santosh asks for the candidate, Which college have you graduate from ? So the candidate replies, Malla Appa Putta Pakka College at Kadukol. Santosh says to himself, why do people keep such funny name? For the next question on training, the candidate tells he underwent training from a centre called Roopam training center at Kadukol to which Santosh says to himself I think this is company of a saree manufacturing. In this chapter we get to know about what are the possible questions in the interviews we need to always carry the resume to the interviews. In the interviews they check the basics, Communication Skills, Automation and Authors views are important here.

Week 5-“Short Listing”, its a Tuesday morning Santosh is back after using his comp off as well some of the team members. Murthy has sent a mail requesting for all the data on the candidates interviews for the Saturday event according to the interview panel they have selected some for junior and some are on hold. For the senior QE three are not selected, one is on hold and one is selected. For an Architect position one is selected and one is not. It’s late Thursday evening; Sachin and Santosh are busy having their usual chat session while having snacks. The shortlisting process was over and everyone seems to be happy.

Week 6 -“Onboard and Fun”, HR (Sandy) in a discussion program with Murthy and Reena. They decided to keep the induction after two weeks. The induction day there were sessions from Sachin and Santosh on overall QE processes with pizzas on the menu for the team.

This is a very interesting and amazing book.  I felt there are jokes and seriousness this book tells a lot about the IT companies and about people management. I have read this twice and this has triggered an interest to know about technical subjects.

I thank Sa & Sa for giving us a very interesting book. You both are my inspiration, write many more books in the future.

Thank you!

Writing of ‘Get a Job WITHOUT an Interview – Google & Beyond’ Book – Part 2

Get a Job WITHOUT an Interview
Get a Job WITHOUT an Interview

In the part 1 I discussed about the beginning of idea (incase you missed to read – Part 1). I spoke to most of the students who went through various rounds of interviews to get insights from recruiter perspective that be a technical test, technical interview, case based interviews, group discussion and HR interviews. I tried to connect those points to the job description and role projection after several years. This analogy seemed to me a short-term objective the way students prepared for campus recruitment and similar thing from hiring perspective. Even today it continue to remain same across many industries. I call it as ‘Pain-Oientiment’ relationship.

This exercise to put those points took almost two years. This has continue to remain on board for refinement to help for interview preparation in the present and future writings.

In the next article I will present how Indian marriages has helped the first chapter to shape and happen.

Writing of ‘Get a Job WITHOUT an Interview – Google and Beyond’ Book – Part 1

Get a Job WITHOUT an Interview
Get a Job WITHOUT an Interview

Authors view (Santosh Avvannavar and Raghavendra Kumar Reddy): The idea to project took nearly 7 years (writing and publication took nearly 2 years), we were always fascinated with the slick book that were clear, specific and precise (minimal filler). An unconventional book that is likely to break the Q & A format and provide a framework to begin. Why such book are important for a long-term career goal?

The idea of this book started during 2006 while I saw M.Tech/M.S. students waiting outside the placement cell for job interviews. I slowly moved into a role known as ‘Placement President’ through Student Cell at IISc, Bengaluru to act as a mediator between placement cell and the institute. There were about 60 companies that participated for campus drive, I sat through most of the presentation that was delivered by technical representative and HR representative. This broaden my horizon of understanding the role that they looked for each business unit.

Each IT company picked countable number of students for a specific role. What I admire also about many students was that they had clarity in picking a role and company that would help them to grow. It was more of a long-term goal. I still remember that students saying NO to an offer because their determination to work for a specific technologies rather than just an offer. This I would term as self-awareness. Various such incidents lead to the beginning of ‘Get a Job WITHOUT an Interview – Google & Beyond’.

In the next article I will bring to you how the idea (brain) to board (paper) began.

Black, Grey and White Review by – Md.Ishaq Hundekar 

This book is very useful as it contains ‘burning issues of modern society’. The stories are in the form of dialogue that uses precise situation and language so that readers (specially Young and adult students) are being impressed by this Authors. Because now a days reading habits are not promising the book full fills such limitations i.e Creating awareness among people about social evils and harmful diseases like HIV, AIDS, specially among young generation. Special thanks for giving such special book to society.
