When I Wasn't Placed In My Final Year Engineering !!!

            355th BLOG -->>

        I completed my engineering with average marks. I knew that it is tough for me to be placed in any of the big organizations in my country- India. India is the country where talent is judged at the last and the source is prioritized initially. 90% of the positions in the organizations are placed through contacts and the recommendations of the employees and the friends in the industries and the neighbours. The left 10% is judged prominently and appropriately. When the season and generation came when I came to know that the companies will be visiting colleges and will pick up the deserving candidates, I was happy in excitement to be selected by some reputed organization. I was happy that all the needs of building a resume and sending it to mail IDs mentioned in the Ascent and Jobs Time section of newspaper will diminish. I told to all my relatives that I am in engineering college and by the last year I'll get a job and I'll start working and earning. Everyone was happy to hear this.

            When the day came in the final year when we were to be presented in front of the Interviewers of several good organizations as HDFC, Kotak Mahindra, Axis, Google, Godrej etc. , I was very nervous but I had the confidence that I'll beat all there conundrums and grab the position. The confidence came from the test our college took to filter the students and send only the top scorers in the placement cell. I scored the Top most marks in the Test and hence I had the confidence that I will be definitely selected. Finally, I entered the cell to interact with the interviewers from Godrej. They asked about me and my experience of Engineering. I answered smartly. Then they asked me about my dreams and ambitions. I replied them too. And then many technical and theoretical questions were thrown upon me and my brain quickly replied to all of them. The same happened with all the companies which came to judge us. At last the Placement Week ended. Now, it was the time for the results to be displayed on the College's notice board and their official website. I was quite happy as I knew that I'll surely read my name in the list.

            The next morning when I fought with the mob where each of them were struggling to see the names qualified in the Placement, I saw that the List didn't vindicated my name in it. I was puzzled. I ran to the office and asked our Director about what mistake did I committed in the interviews because of which I am thrown out. He replied that I tried to manipulate them while answering. I was shocked. My dreams were scattered. Tears started rolling on my cheeks. I started feeling inferior. All the classmates who got selected started taunting and teasing as they knew that I was confident to win the position in any of the organization. It took 2 year for me to come out of that depression and the world of darkness and failure. In this 2 year, all the students who were selected in the respective placement augmented their packages and were holding a Damn Huge Package of 20 Lakh per annum. I was no where.

            I tried to analyze myself. I did good in Computers in all the 8 Semesters. I had the degree of Engineering but still I was Unemployed and Jobless which was quite strange and unacceptable. I asked for loan from personal friends and build a huge Cyber Cafe. It took 1 year to recover all the capital I invested and hence all the Loans were paid and I was at the Initial level of business. I had option to earn now. Parents were happy to see that I didn't lost hope and I struggled to earn and perform. Now, I got many customers who were Project Managers. I asked them for some projects which they can hand over to me. They started giving me projects and they were quite happy with my performance. Suddenly, one of them offered me an agreement where I was to be paid 20,000 per project. I agreed to it. Now I started working hard on projects. Every month, I completed 7 projects at an average. I started earning 1,40,000 from projects and 5,000 from Cyber Cafe. Now, my earning of an year became 17 Lakh 40 Thousand while my friends were handling 23 Lakh. All the inferiority complex ended.

            I started taking project from 4 Managers at the cost of 25,000 each. I took 30 Projects in all. Now, I started hiring all those candidates who didn't made up to the Placements in their respective colleges and gave them the opportunity to earn. I gave them a project at 10,000. Now at each project I started earning 15,000 and hence 4,50,000 rs for 30 Projects per month. None of my classmate who were placed in my batch earned this much. Now, when they came to know about my idea and money, they started contacting me and asked for some projects which they would like to do for me. This is how I changed my fate, my destiny and my world. The people were selected and taunted and teased me were the same people who asked me for the jobs and projects. I was their Boss now. I was the one who were paying them for their part time devotion. And currently I am earning 10 Lakh rs per month. Now I am somewhere and they are no where !!!

           This is an autobiography I wrote after seeing the people who feel inferior and go into depression just because they aren't placed while their graduation and engineering.

Thanks. Please reply.

If we want to become successful in our life we should have a will not a skill.

Thank u bro..

Reicha Ahluwalia said...

Ok its really a fiction.. coz no one can manage with 30 projects in a month ALONE and earn 10L .
But so sure its a source of encouragement for the ones who feel depressed in such situations..
Nice read !
Take care :)

AbhiLaSH RuHeLa said...

Mam, I said that I started taking 30 projects and I started selecting some other people too who wanted money and asked them to do projects for me.. So, this fiction can be adopted in real life. :-)
