The ultimate objective of man-
agement graduates is to land their
dream job and to start a highflying
corporate career. The placement
interviews are thus the doorway
to opportunity and hence, man-
agement graduates must put in all
their efforts in making it a success.
This means that the preparation
for the placement interviews must
start well before the actual days
and it is advisable to plan for them
as soon as one enters the second
year of the management course.
The first point to note is that a
well made and well presented
resume is the first step and hence,
management graduates must
spend as much time as possible in
preparing the resume. Indeed, even
for the summer placements,
resumes are needed and these have
to be polished and prepared in a
thorough and detailed manner. it
should also be noted that many
corporates do not link to go
through resumes that are more
than 3-4 pages in length and
hence, it is advisable to prepare a
resume that is succinct, lucid, and
conveys all the information to the
point and accurately.
HR professionals usually skim
through each resume in a matter
of minutes or even less than that
and being seasoned professionals;
they can spot a good resume when
they see one. This is all the more
reason to start working on one s
resume as soon as possible.
The next point to note about
placement interviews is that it is
all about peaking at the right
moment and hence, despite how
many hours spent planning and
preparing for the placement sea-
son, the key aspect is that one
must be physically and mentally
fit as well as be "in the zone" when
the eventual placement days arrive.
Given the fact many business
schools have compressed place-
ment sessions despite efforts being
made to stagger the placement
season, it is important to be
focused and motivated for the
placement interviews. Of course,
many business schools in the Unit-
ed States follow an elaborate place-
ment schedule that reduces the
stress and strain as well as the
pressure cooker kind of situation
that gives nightmares to students. However, the vast majority of business
schools the world over still have a gun-
shot placement season where most
offers are made during the course of
a week or so.
As mentioned earlier, one has to be
physically and mentally fit in time for
the placement season and this means
that is better to work out and exercise
before the placement season and to eat
and stay healthy.
The third point to be noted is that
given the fact that the summer intern-
ships usually lead to Pre Placement
Offers, selecting the dream job and
choosing the offers must be done dili-
gently and by giving adequate thought
to the outcome. This means that one
has to be careful about accepting the
PPO and at the same time have enough
breathing space left over to attend other
interviews as well.
Though many business schools now
have the provision of multiple offers
and letting the students select the
appropriate one, it is still important to
understand that the first placement
usually determines the course of the
career for a few years at the minimum.
Apart from this, getting into invest-
ment banks and consultancies is a dif-
ferent ballgame altogether and if one
is aspiring for these jobs, it is better to
start preparing from day one of the
first year (we are not joking here) as
such jobs demand consistency in grades,
all round achievements, and well round-
ed personalities. This is the reason why
many management graduates who
aspire to join consultancies and invest-
ment banks "build their profile" right
from the start of the management
Finally, though we have stressed on
the importance of placement interviews
as the ultimate goal of business school
education, one should not take it to
the point that a unwanted outcome in
the placement interview makes one
totally "lose it". In other words, do not
be disheartened if you do not make it
to your dream job and instead, try the
other options of building your profile
during the first few years of your career
so that you can eventually make it to
the job of your choice.
