Well I’m one of those guys who wants more than one offer at the end of his graduation. Yes, I know this concept might be very normal for those of you living in supposed big cities or studying in big colleges. But there still exist places where the colleges have rules that the student can hold only one offer through the recruitments organized by the placement cell. And yes I was lucky enough to get a job. TCS has taken me in. I’m still unaware when my joining dates will be,but let us wait for that.
Somebody once told me that the job sites online can actually find you a job. All the companies though aren’t listed in a single job site. So I took a bolder decision and uploaded my resume in any site that gives a TV ad.Rik also had an idea that it might work so I had somebody to support me. Now I’m unsure whether he actually uploaded his resume or not. Well but the important matter of concern is the mails that you actually landup receiving in your inbox.
I was actually astonished to see this mail in my inbox yesterday. Believe me I didn’t make this up

For a moment as soon as I saw the subject I thought that all the work of filling up those grueling resume kind of applications online paid of. The worst part about filling up those questioners is that, by mistake even if you leave a column empty and click submit, the whole form doesn’t get approved and all the fields become blank again. Now let us come back to the great offer I’ve supposedly got from HCL. Can’t the great guy who composed this rip off spell letter?? or does his company named HCL give out latters?? I wouldn’t have been surprised if he said offer platters. And the great soul doesn’t even know his tenses right. He says the time and date of my offer will be mention in my coll or offer letter. And yeah he himself doesn’t know what sort of a letter he’s actually going to give me. Whether he’s going to call me for the job with the date of joining or offer me one and make me wait.
I also wanted to ask him which Company advised him to progress my application?? Don’t people usually process the applications??
The best part came when he was asking me to deposit money in the bank account for the job? Am i crazy? Pay for getting a job? And what sort of a company fixes a payscale ranging from 20k to 60K per month?? And please do read the line that says something about job profile,date-time of interview.
And please don’t try the number thats mentioned below even if you want to vent the frustration because the call gets charged the minute u start dialing and the answer you receive is that the number’s not reachable.
Am seriously interested in knowing which great soul got this idea and composed this mail. Even a 7th standard student can compose a better story than this.
And now, the sender’s address registered with the jobsite is not Ambica Towers Banglore but its in some bloody house in chennai mylapore.
Job sites do rock.
