Transcript :

“Why is an interview so important? Why do business schools across the world use it as a means to select candidates for their course?

Let’s understand from their perspective. they are hiring future managers, they are hiring future CEOs, they are hiring future CXOs . What you need to do as future managers, CEOs, CXOs, you need to engage in a lot of dialogue within  the corporate organisations , you need to engage in a lot of dialogue even if you are an entrepreneur and they want to know your ability to dialogue. They know you by your form, they know you by your academic scores, they know you by your profile that you have put down before them but they don’t know you from your ability of communication. That is what they want to judge. Its not just a simple ability of saying what you prepare, its the ability to be able to react to a situation, to be able to react to the cross questioning that they put across you, its the ability that you demonstrate that whether you can do consensus building in organisations in the future and its the ability somewhere of your maturity that you demonstrate during an interview. So they make you react to situations, ask you questions to figure out also the consistency with the essays that you have put down. If you have said that you are an X kind of person and by making you react to a situation they actually judge whether you are that kind of a person or not. So your maturity, ability to dialogue, your ability to be consistent is all judg……” Read the entire transcript here.

Which Are The Dream Companies On Top Business School Campuses? – InsideIIM Recruitment Survey 2016 – Part 12

We conclude our Recruitment Survey Results with the announcement of this year’s list of Dream Companies. These companies have been declared by Aspirants, Business School Students and Alumni as their Dream companies across all sectors, functions and locations. We asked all three categories of respondents to name their top 5 Dream companies. They were asked to type the names of companies and no list was provided to choose from.

(You can find the previous 11 parts in this series here which cover Marketing, Banking and General Management Lists, other important stats around expected salaries, preferred work cities, Cost of an MBA etc.)

15.1 first year and aspirants 15.2 2nd Years 01 15.3 Post MBA

 

You will not find a big difference in the list when compared to the previous year. In fact, you will see that while positions have changed within the top 10, there is hardly any change over the last 3 years. Check 2014 Data here or check 2012 results here.

Unilever has never dropped out of the top 5 for any respondent category over the last 5 years. Mckinsey & Co. and BCG have rarely dropped out of the top 5 in the last 5 years for any respondent category. TAS, Google, P&G are other names who have never dropped out of top 10.  Amazon, Goldman Sachs and Facebook are very strong names which will figure almost every year. Aditya Birla Group is generally quite strong among the graduating class – probably because of the Young Leader’s Programme. Microsoft, ITC, Mahindra, Deloitte and JPMC are other names which are have been in the top 10 multiple times even if a few of them miss out this year.

Dream companies are brands which are built slowly over the years and a lot of things need to align for this to happen. Only if there is consistently good feedback from alumni, professors, current employees etc. can such a brand positioning be sustained. This is combined with factors like good compensation, a challenging work place and a sustained employer branding outreach programme. While it is not surprising to see international companies feature so prominently in this list, it is heartening to see Indian companies like TAS, ABG and ITC make their presence felt quite strongly against the global behemoths with glamorous brands.

Celebrating Womanhood On InsideIIM – Miti Vaidya – XLRI Alumna

Women’s day is round the corner, and Team InsideIIM interviewed some women who inspire us.

In the next few days, every day, we will bring you the story of a woman who is out there standing strong and high, carving her way in this tough world. What drives them, what are their opinions about things, and some words of wisdom.

“Here’s to strong women. May we know them, may we raise them.”

In this first article of the series, we start with someone close to home. Miti Vaidya – Miti Vaidya is an alumna of XLRI Jamshedpur (Class of 2011) and has also successfully completed Chartered Accountancy (May 2011). She joined TAS from campus and spent 5 years in various businesses and functions across India and Europe. Now, as part of the core team at InsideIIM – Konversations, she is focusing on new ways to expand offerings in education. She can be found curled up with a book after hours.

What was high school like for you? How did it contribute to your personality/ the person you are right now?

To this day, there are some school friends who refer to me as “Topper”, “Scholar” and such other academic insults. So, it shouldn’t be hard to infer that I was quite the geek in high school. Yes, it’s true that I did well in exams, but I definitely didn’t spend all my time studying (I can picture those same friends smirking). My interests, however, even at that time, weren’t really “cool”. I was obsessed with reading and easily got through the English literature textbook well in advance of the start of the academic year. I also inherited a lot of discipline and structure from my father, but was known for being unexpectedly devilish once in a while.

I guess all of this contributes strongly to the person I am right now. Pretty sure I’m still a geek (I sometimes spend my free time on Lynda or FutureLearn; it’s ok, go on, roll your eyes, I am not offended). Definitely still obsessed with reading. My love for neatness and structure is likely considered borderline OCD by those close to me.

On a serious note, I think all my habits and traits from high school have led me to be a very reliable friend and colleague, albeit a risk-averse one.

 

If money was no object, what would you do all day?

No-brainer question – travel and read, of course.

After a few weeks of this, I would probably get depressed without a productive goal to work towards, so I’d go and find myself a job. Education is my pet sector – I have tremendous faith in its power.

 

What advice would you give to a 5-year-younger you?

Travel more, flirt more and quit that finance job ASAP!

 

Many IIMs and other b-schools award extra points for being a woman. What is your take on that? Do you propagate the concept OR Have you faced any backlash for the same?

When I entered B-School, there were no such points formally awarded to women, so I haven’t faced any backlash. However, personally, I am in favour of this concept. In India, despite all efforts to promote women involvement, I think we are still woefully behind in terms of gender equality. It is important to have more women leaders or role models and one way to do this is by admitting more women into quality higher education. However, I don’t think this is the only solution or even a sustainable one. It only treats the symptoms of the gender equality problem to some extent. The real change can only come if there is a concerted effort to bring about a change in attitude in our homes and workplaces.

 

Name one incident that you encountered where someone told you, you couldn’t do something because you’re a woman.

The fondest memories of my time at Narsee Monjee College are of the B.Com college festival, Umang. Much of my personality shaping happened during my late teens as part of the leadership in this college festival. When I joined the organising committee, the festival had been running annually for a few years, but had never yet had a female Chairperson or a female Vice-Chairperson 3 (which oversaw Technical, Security and Finance departments). No one said out loud that a woman couldn’t hold these posts; it had just never happened. I loved working for Umang, and progressed very quickly in the organising team, with a good chance of becoming the first female Chairperson. I eventually lost by two votes to one of my closest friends, but made up by going on to become Vice-Chairperson 3 in his team. There was scepticism initially, whether a girl would be able to manage the rough external contractors who worked with the Technical department or be able to manage the physical pressures of the Security department. Today, I am proud to say that there have been enough women in this post after me, so whether a woman can do it is no longer a discussion point.

 

If you are out on a date, do you prefer to pay yourself? If you insisted that you want to pay for yourself, how did the other person react?

Quick Supporting Fact – I recently married the guy who I have been with off-and-on for over a decade, so I don’t really have too many “date” data points to rely on. Nevertheless, I am usually happy to split the bill equally; I think it’s the most hassle-free way. My boyfriend was usually happy with that too. Now that we are married, we don’t split each time. But we usually pay alternately and I think it has balanced over time. It definitely helps that neither of us think this is a big deal or something that needs discussion.
