Can’t Hire You

We can’t hire you because you don’t have good academic records.

We can’t hire you because you didn’t score certain percentage marks in your 10th/12th/Graduation or Post Graduation.

We can’t hire you because you don’t belong to a particular place.

We can’t hire you because you can’t speak English.

We can’t hire you because you took a break in your career.

We can’t hire you because you are not creative.

We can’t hire you because your college/university doesn’t come in top college/university.

We can’t hire you because you are over-qualified.

And the unique one

We can’t hire you because you are a fresher.

These are few common examples of rejection. In my view- These rejection reasons are not sufficient to ensure that a person has potential or not. A person can’t be creative every time. We should stop judging people based on their academics, English speaking ability or college name. Maybe he/she is good in some other things. Maybe she/he had spent his/her time to improving skill during academic.

We can judge them based on their personality, attitude & learning potential. Judge them how they can bring change or add value to our organisation. Judge them how much curious about their work.

And most important We can’t consider a person worthless because He is fresher. “Every experienced was fresher at a time.”

WHAT IS MARKETING

WHAT IS MARKETING?

You see a beautiful girl at a party. You went up to her and say “I am very rich. Marry me”. That’s DIRECT MARKETING

You are at a party with a bunch of friends and see a beautiful girl. One of your friends goes up to her and pointing at you says, “He is very rich. Marry him”. That’s ADVERTISING

You see a beautiful girl at a party. You go up to her and get her telephone number. The next day you called her and say, “Hi, I am very rich. Marry me”. That’s TELEMARKETING.

You are at a party and see a beautiful girl. You get up and straighten your tie, you walk up to her and pour her a drink. You open the door for her, pick up her bag after she drops it, offer her a ride, and then say, ‘By the way, I’m very rich. Will you marry me?’. That’s PUBLIC RELATIONS.

You are at a party and see a beautiful girl. She walks up to you and says, “You are very rich”. That’s BRAND RECOGNITION.

You see a beautiful girl at a party. You go up to her and say, “I am very rich. Marry me”. She gives you a nice hard slap on your face. That’s CUSTOMER FEEDBACK.

JOB Search

Being a fresher, while searching for job opportunities I got to learn two basic principles/ rules that companies follow:-

1. They want experienced candidates (They want experience candidate without giving chance to any fresher),

2. Candidates who can join immediately  (Don’t know what does immediately means in their dictionary).

If a candidate is not experienced or cannot join immediately, he/ she has very less chance/no chance of getting a job.

I had a talk with some employees of different companies. Some said freshers are only hired through campus placements. But what about those, who don’t have interest in those companies who are coming to campus or are not selected?

There are various stories where freshers are being baffled every day in search of jobs. What can a fresher do to get a job of his/ her interest?

Financial lessons from Bollywood

Don’t just look for entertainment when it comes to Hindi movies. Here’s the financial wisdom some of the blockbusters can dispense.

Baahubali: “Yudh mein saikadon ko maarne waala nayak hai … lekin joh kisi ek ke bhi pran bachaye woh devta hai.”

Lesson: Be greedy and fearful at the right time. Try not to be like Baahubali’s brother, Bhallaladeva, whose greed for the kingdom proves to be his undoing. Baahubali (Prabhas) on the other hand knows when to covet, the reason he makes gains. So be greedy at the bottom of the market cycle and fearful at the top. Not the other way round.

Sholay: “Yeh haath humko de de Thakur…”

Lesson: If you’ve been burnt by the market, don’t stop investing. You think you are doomed just because you lost money in the stock market once? Think Thakur (Sanjeev Kumar) without arms. The poor man outsources his work to Jai (Amitabh Bachchan) and Veeru (Dharmendra). And gets it done. Surely you can repose your faith in a fund manager and continue investing.

Deewar: “Aaj mere pass building hai, property hai, bank balance hai… kya hai tumhare paas?”

Lesson: Don’t invest in Ponzi schemes. and always buy a term plan. Not having your mom with you will be the least of your concerns if you invest in a Ponzi scheme. For, like Vijay (Amitabh Bachchan), you may have the swag and cash initially, but will lose it in the end. Also, make sure you buy life insurance. If Vijay’s father had bought one, the poor kid would not have had to rough it out. Or have lost his money and much coveted ‘maa’….

Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge: “Bade bade Deshon mein Choti Choti baatein hoti rehti hain…”

Lesson: For good equity returns, be focused and invest for the long term. Be as persistent with your equity investments as Raj Malhotra (Shah Rukh Khan) is about marrying Simran (Kajol). Do not be sidetracked by short-term market noises— Simran’s engagement to Kuljeet (Parmeet Seethi)—and stay invested for the long term. The rewards will be well worth the wait.

Kal Ho Naa Ho: “Aaj ek dua aur maang lo, aaj ek ansoon aur pee lo, aaj ek zindagi aur jee lo, kya pata, kal ho naa ho…”

Lesson: Write a will and buy all forms of insurance. Take a leaf from Aman Mathur (Shah Rukh Khan) and don’t take life for granted. Afflicted by cancer, he plays matchmaker for Naina Kapur (Preity Zinta) and Rohit Patel (Saif Ali Khan), and secures their future. You secure yours by buying critical illness and basic health cover. Also make sure you write a will.

Mughal-e-Azam: “Phool to murjha jaate hain lekin kante daaman thaam lete hain…”

Lesson: Don’t get too attached to loss-making investments. Love and the enchanting Anarkali (Madhubala) may seem like worthy causes to pursue. But it’s best not to emulate Prince Salim (Dilip Kumar) if too much love threatens your investments. If you know your stocks or funds have been incurring massive losses, it’s best to get rid of these at the earliest.

Dil Chahta Hai: “Aaj Pooja, kal koi dooja..”

Lesson: Don’t invest in products you don’t understand. Also, beware of missellers. Be Akash Malhotra (Aamir) when it comes to investing. He doesn’t believe in or understands love and, hence, refuses to be in a serious relationship. Only when he falls in love with Shalini (Preity Zinta) does he make a commitment. Do likewise. Unless you know how a Ulip or thematic funds work, don’t put your money in them. Also like Sameer (Saif Ali Khan), do not be conned by agents and bank representatives.

3 Idiots: “Bachcha Kabil bano, Kabil … kamyabi toh saali jhak maarke peeche bhagegi.”

Lesson: Aal izz well if you have the passion for your career, but also work hard and have serious talent. Of course, you’ll enjoy studying if you love it, but aal izz not going to be well if you blindly carry over this philosophy to your profession. So listen to Rancho (Aamir Khan), but make sure you are either as talented as him or Farhan (R. Madhavan). And always, always be diligent.

Lagaan: “Dugna lagaan jabardasti nahi hai? Bhar sake hai koi? Ee bipda nahi hai Mukhiya ji, ee hai mauka.”

Lesson: Don’t be forced to pay taxes or fees due to ignorance. Be like Bhuvan. Learn & act. Defying the Champaner villagers, Bhuvan (Aamir Khan) braves up to learning and playing cricket to avoid paying the taxes imposed by the British. You, too, be on the ball and read up about tax deductions and bank charges to avoid paying them.

PK: “Humka laagat hai bhagwan se baat kare ka communication system is gola ka total lul ho chuka hai”.

Lesson: Don’t follow the masses blindly. Conduct your own research before investing. Just because the earthlings believe in God doesn’t mean PK (Aamir Khan) has to as well. He needs proof and conducts research. You should, too, if you want to gain from your market investments. Don’t develop the herd mentality.

Happy New Year

31st December 2017

2 O’clock in the night

What comes to your mind when thinking about 2.am in the night: sleeping. But, in Jammu and Kashmir, our soldiers were fighting with terrorist. We lost 5 of them. And they(terrorist) were only three.

10 O’clock in the morning

Most of us were still sleeping because it was Sunday and we consider Sunday as a sleeping day. Most of us had New Year Party in their office last night, so they were tired of drinking. Some were planning for their New Year Party. But no one had time to open their TV and see the news.

12 O’clock

Terror attack news had spread in India. Our leaders had twitted about the attack. Most of us saw the news and ignore it because we had to do planning for our New Year Party. But, our soldiers were still fighting with terrorist.

10 O’clock at night

We are busy at our Party. We all are party birds, so we had no time for Our country. Everyone was busy with their own plan but what about those family who lost their family member. What about the wife who lost her husband, the sister who lost her brother, the mother who lost her son? Was this a new year for them? Was this a new year for India? We have lost our 5 soldiers. And we have no care about anything because this was New Year.

I’m not opposing of Celebrating New Year but think about them who lost their loved one.

By the way Happy New Year to all.

MBA in India

After completing my Graduation in BBA,  I was excited to join a B-school. I just wanted to see the new world of corporate. As I belong to a very small town in Bihar, taking admission in a B-school is a very big thing. I got very good percentile in September 2015, MAT. Some of my friends have already cleared the MAT exam. It was a new experience for us. We all are excited to join a B-school. We started searching for college according to our financial conditions and according to college’s placement. I all was like a dream is coming true.

After spending money and time, getting bored with calls from Colleges(nearly 20 calls a day), we all select our college and pack our bags for our dreams. I landed to Gurgaon (As my father didn’t that I would go to Delhi and my mother didn’t allow me to go to Pune) along with one of my friends.

PGDM (Post Graduate Diploma in Management) was the program for which I came to Gurgaon (I didn’t qualify for IIMs). This program gave me a lot of new experience. I met new people from different industries. Went on some industrial visits. Got a chance to work with a reputed company during my Summer Internship Program.  My personality get changed, My process of thinking get changed, I started to take responsibility.

But now the time is coming for which I came here, a dream Job. Some of my classmates already get placed and some are still waiting. I’m also still waiting for good companies to come. I started posting on LinkedIn, sending resume to HRs, increasing connection so I can get a job. But there is nothing. None of the HRs replied my emails. I’m still waiting, waiting and waiting.
