2. Build your CV – I know you cannot do much now, because you already are in a B-School, but I will ideally suggest to you that one should try doing as many activities as possible till the Summers. This includes taking part in Case Competitions and Intra College Activities, being a part of student bodies and applying and appearing for Scholarship examinations. Beyond this, one should show some amount of diversity on their profiles which will provide them with talking points during the interview process.
3. Games – Yes, you read that right. Games. TAS for instance has a process at the very beginning where you have to play a particular simulation-based game that allows you to exercise your grey matter. And mind you, this game is evaluated. You have to perform well in this in order to make it to the next round.
4. Writing – The majority of the Genman roles are expecting that candidates to write long answers. These are self-exploratory answers. They contain your biggest failure, your biggest success, any problem you solved in an innovative manner and so on and so forth. One needs to be very proficient and ready with this in order to leave a lasting remark on the person reading the same.
5. GD – This is the most important filter criteria that the firms use to make their final PI shortlist. Chairman and normal GDs are the most commonly used formats. You need to practice GDs, that too in a virtual set-up to up this game. This will require one to read a lot on current affairs as well so as to validate points while sitting in a GD. Rules like not cutting others while talking and maintaining decorum are ones that ought to be followed.
6. PI – I don’t really need to stress the importance of this metric as it is the same throughout. HR questions, future goals etc all need to be in place.
These 6 points are extremely important for one to crack the Genman role. I hope this helps. All the very best!
