Surviving B-School Placements

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a sleepless man (or woman) in possession of a good CV must be in want of a job. Panic. Confusion. Anxiety. Sleeplessness. Anticipation. Hope. Euphoria. Relief. If anybody has spent some time in a fairly competent b-school, they would know exactly what I am talking about. It’s again that time of the year when young hopefuls, with their nose buried under a pile of cheat-sheets, checklists and hacks line up the corridors and […]

60 days of Summer

My research before my interview process for Reculta Summer Internship led me to believe that the company’s feats were impressive in such a short span of time.

Reculta Chronicles Part 1 – The Future Of Campus Placements (In A Barista Near You)

Nothing unusual in a coffee shop. But two things catch my attention. First, the language is quite tech heavy, with words like “encryption”, “TAT” and “modular access” being used quite often. Second, there is a lot of talk around […]
