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.

What’s motivation behind this book?
Our research and close observation of the job interviewing process for graduates at Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru during 2008 and 2009 for nearly 500 students in various companies, is the inspiration for this book.

How did the book shape?
The idea of book all began seven years ago; gathering information and compilation took one year, writing clear and concise manuscript took one and half year, revisions, addition, debate, arguments and others took another 6 months, decision of publisher and publication took another year. You see it takes a toll to convert an idea into a project!

What is this book all about?
Make it Big!-Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, Amazon, Adobe
Strengths: Simplified Interview Structures, Best Hiring, Misconception to Programming
Weakness: Addition to Software Industry, Best Software Engineer, Steep Career Growth
Opportunities: Dream Job, Best Ways to Learn, Be a part of Best Companies
Threats: Sleepless Night, Software Syndrome, Neighbours Envy (look for back cover page)

How different is this book?
This book is intended to help people just not only to crack interviews, but build career. We have tried to emphasizes on need of hour and future dynamics of hiring process that industry is witnessing and rapidly changes that will take place in best of the companies. We hope to break the conventional learning methodology through this book.

Who all should read this book?
The book cover page and content might reflect that it’s for IT aspirants, but the book intends to give away for all the industry. IT industry begin an interdisciplinary, it might an important book to look forward. We authors believe that it’s a book for a long term. Readers will also find that it’s simple read, easy to understand and some chapter would seem hilarious.

Einstein Story and Book Launch!


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). A 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? We like to tell this through a story –

Einstein won nobel prize for physics, many ears waited earnestly to hear his innovation each and everyone in those days. Very often Einstein would get invited by a university to speak about his innovation and motivate others. His driver would wonder seeing the crazy people had for him, cheered ‘Einstein, Einstein..’ as he walked into the auditorium. The driver used to hear the same presentation each day and wondered, if one could get nobel prize by giving such talk – why can’t I? He proposed a deal with his master that he could present like him and deserves to win a nobel prize. Einstein was happy and curious to see if his driver could take his position. Einstein became driver and the driver became Einstein as a trial. As media wasn’t popular, people weren’t aware how Einstein would really look like. The driver was made to look like Einstein and Einstein took the driver seat. As the driver walked into the auditorium, people cheered ‘Einstein, Einstein..’, he was overwhelmed by the people response. Einstein was surprised and happy to see his driver making presentation just like him. At the end of talk, the driver (Einstein at moment) was about a take his seat, a lady got up from her seat to ask a doubt. Driver didn’t know the Einstein is awarded nobel for his technical contribution over only mere a presentation. The doubt was, ‘If a ball is made to move from one end of the earth through a hole and the ball has to come through another hole….”. Driver presence of mind was something to admire, after listening to the question he quipped,’Lady, you are asking a very simple question to a nobel prize winner, my driver can answer such question.’ He asked his driver (Einstein) to answer this question. Jokes apart! The story is an example of Einstein innovation over failure is the result of nobel prize, the prize was worth because it was clear, concise and precise. Hence the number of pages doesn’t define a value of book!
