Wish shattered…

February 18, 06 by Bharani

Rejected for Program manager position after 3 rounds of interview. Reason quoted was lack of sufficient fit with the position! Superficial feedback, but still is of some importance to me…Significant number of hours of work was invested from my side to prepare for Microsoft. An effort which started month ago and which finally gathered momentum 3 days ago…

I was surprised that even some really sharp people were rejected for lack of fit…Hmm, throughout my 3 interviews, I was asked only puzzles, algorithms and design problems (Stress interview! can’t believe Microsoft employs stress tactics, as it is clearly not their philoshophy). Anyway, whatever happens is for good…

It took some time for me to accept the reality…Then, the first thing that I did after hearing the news was to reach room and catch some sleep…so that I am in decent shape for tomorrow’s interview…

The first ball has been disaster and taken my middle stump for wheeling!..Now, I am ready to face the next ball…Different bowler, different pitch…Mood: Charged up more than before…

PS: M/S finally offered just 2 program manager positions. The selected candidates have significant Product design and development background.

This entry no have comments... but you can be first.
