1/21/2014 09:55:00 am 0 Comments

Dear Aspirants from IV Mechanical Engineering
Hope and wish that you are bracing for the 24th Jan test.It is obviously a sort of a litmus test for you all,as it falls in your core area.and also for the fact that Satven is a good platform for many of you.Here you have no disadvantage unlike some IT related companies.Especially for your batch this is a great opportunity as well as responsibility because your better performance would ensure continuation of satyam venture recruitment drive for our college. You are expected to possess a Mechanical centered technical profile .Prepare a clear strategy for facing the technical challenges.Do some micro analysis of the technical areas/subjects.Replace hard work with some smart work.I don't know for sure but people say that a good grounding in CAD,CAM,Robotics & Thermal etc. is almost essential. Try to find out reasons to justify why you favour some subjects, so also some concepts.Do not panic when you are contradicted or asked to explain or justify .As soon as you get to hear the question, try to find out the nature of the quiestion as well as the expectation of the interviewer-whether it is issue-based or opinion-oriented or purely info/data based question.
As far as GDs are concerned, try to analyse the topic and generate ideas that would add value to your participation in it.
Skills to be assessed:
Analytical skills- ability to deconstruct the topic and make clear sub parts-critical thinking-organized thoughts-logical thinking
Communication skills- ability to express clearly-articulate correctly-use body language cues effectively to showcase confidence and courtesy.
Interpersonal skills -leadership-etiquette- team spirit-ability to manage time etc.
Problem solving skills
Innovative ideas are always appreciated.You got to be rational, yet different.
Remember, your role in a GD is that of an Individual in a team.So instead of dominating over others create opportunities for others to make some contributions.It always stands out.Do not contradict others too often and don't sound combative or too argumentative.If you find  a valid  point in others, make sure you acknowledge and appreciate.Never ever forget to be polite, however aggressive the others may be or  surcharged the atmosphere might be. time your participation well.make well timed interventions.Don,t speak up all your ideas in one go.Instead go in a staggered way, as the situation demands.
The above observations are random ones, but must always be taken note of for ensuring effective participation in GDs. For more ideas and topics, please visit one previous blog posting of mine on GDs (see Archive).
But mere theoretical ideating might not help without practice.So go out and be a part of any discussion team. Don't worry, practice in communication beats the law of diminishing marginal utility.That means, the more you practice in communication,the better you become, not the reverse.
Finally, I may hate to do this, but to save you some time and energy I am posting the profile of the company. (You all know why we want you to take some more responsibility)
