Managed to wake up at 7:30 a.m. today. Huh! Today, we received the marks of our first mid-term examination in ISB (Statistics). Was not surprised to see my score…It was proportional to the effort that I put in…Hmm, I guess I got the exact average figure…
Later in the evening, an interesting conversation in this regard.
My friend asks..”Dude, how did you perform in Stats?”.
Me: “Hmm..ok, I got the class average mark.”.
He: “How much did you get?”.
Me:” X ( a figure)”.
He:” How do you know that it’s the average mark?”
Me:” Because I am an average guy and Averge guys get average marks!”
Friend 1: “How much did you get in Economics?”.
Friend 2: “I maxed out.”
Friend 1: “Well, I got one mark less than max..”
Friend 2: (Looking at me…) “Dude how much is yours?”
Me: “I got slightly below average mark…” and I continue…
Me: “Remember, only because I am below average, you are above-average. You guys owe me!”…
More statements on the similar lines.
Friend 1: “Only because we IT guys are in big numbers here, you CAs and enterpreneurs are diversity candidates.”
Friend 2: “Only because we are majority, you are minority!”…
Sometimes, it’s fun to have such conversations…:-)
Fun aside, we had an Introductory session on Career Advancement Services (CAS). CAS will be THE important unit for all of us. They will assist us in fine-tuning resumes, preparing us for interviews, case-studies, dressing, matching our profiles with recruiters etc., Some important goals of CAS this year are increasing the international offers, increasing the offers in consulting firms and attracting firms from diverse backgrounds. I have my first one-on-one session with CAS on June 17th.
