Hello GMATCLUB community,

This platform has helped a lot during my Gmat Days and interview preparation. Fortunately, it my turn now to contribute back to the club

A brief about my background:
Myself Puneet, an engineer working in the IT industry for around 9 years. Professionally, I have been leading cross cultural teams.
A traditional background of Indian IT Male makes me work even harder for the Interviews.
GMAT - 710 (Q 50, V 35, IR 8)

Other Admits - ISB, IIM Indore, IIML (Result awaited)

Interview Experience:

My interview was scheduled on 11th Nov’17 in the India Habitat Center. I reached early at the venue to get a chance to talk to other candidates. I found many brilliant people with excellent profiles. Quite a significant number of candidates were from PSUs.

Pre - Interview Process -

All the document were verified very thoroughly. Hats off to the lady who did the job meticulously throughout the day :-D
I was sixth in line for the interview and had ample of time to network with other candidates.
Interview Begins…
My interview panel had 2 professors; 1 Female(P1) and 1 Male (P2)

I was called in by P2, after usual greetings, P1 took the charge and the interview started on a very casual note.

P1: Delhi weather is really terrible nowadays, what is the reason for this.
Me : Told her about the construction, 1cr+ vehicles in Delhi, crop burning in the neighboring states as the reason.

P1 : What can be the solution for this .
Me : It’s a collectective responsibility that needs to be shared equally by center, states and citizens. Gave some examples as well.

After this chit chat, the real interview began -
P1 : You have travelled a lot in your career. Can you tell us about it
Me : Told her about the all my jobs and locations in brief. Also, emphasized what I learn from each job and place.

P1 : What is your reason for shifting from Company 1 to Company 2?
Me : Told her that the new role was my dram role at that point of my career.

P1 : Then Why you shifted from Company 2 to Company 3.
Me : Even though the company provided me my dream role but I didn’t find any motivation as the learning opportunity was not there. I justified what I said with the evidence from my resume.

P1 was really very smart interviewer, she verified each and every word of mine with my resume and achievements and moved to other question only after getting satisfied.

P1: What do you think the current situation in IT is? What should people do to save their jobs.
Me : Told her about the current situation - the declining margins, protectionism etc. Told her that the only way out is to Reinvent yourself.

P1: What are digital technologies?
ME: Told her

P1 : What is your favorite?
Me : Blockchain. Explained her about it in detail.

P1 : When you like technology then why MBA?
Me : Told the reasons clearly, and the situation that inspired me.

P1: Which companies are you targeting for IT consulting?
Me : Told her.

Finally, P2 got a chance to speak :-)
P2 : Why IIMC?
Me : Told him about the ROI - which is best among top colleges, the focus of curriculum on numbers amongst other reasons.

P2 was satisfied and again went on silent mode. P1 took over again.

P1 : How did you prepare for interviews?
Me : Told her, how my wife helped me.

P1 : Why she is not doing MBA?
Me : Told her that we have 2 year old daughter, so, its difficult for her to manage studies and child.

P1 told that many womem did their MBA. Its difficult but they can do it. I told her that Once I am done, I will try to change her mind as well.

P1: What is your opinion on #METOO?
Me - I told her that Women has all the right to name and shame people who harassed them.

Some cross questioning on this. But she was satisfy with my answers.

P1 : What is your Risk Management as you have wife and 2 year old daughter?
Me : Since I have 2 year old daughter, I know what I am going to leave behind. This will inspire me to work hard and even harder.

Both P1 and P2 were in awe.

P1 : Any question for us?
Me : asked about the placement stats for IT consulting companies

P1: Thank you.

It was really one of the best interview of my life. I found both the Professors really smart and polite. I got a good feeling after the interview and started dreaming of IIMC.
Fortunately, this dream became a reality on 25th Nov’17, when I received the much awaited email of Admission Offer. And Now, I am eagerly waiting for 24th April'18, which will be my FIRST day in my DREAM college.

Few Tips -

1) Be 200% clear about Why MBA? This question can come in various forms and you should be ready to tackle it.
2) Know your Resume thoroughly. Have reasons for each job change.
3) Be Honest. Professors are very smart they will catch if you cook stories.

1. How your calculated your ROI, assuming with 9 years of work ex your current CTC will in 6 figures.
2. I am aspiring for ISB. Can you share your interview experience for ISB also. If you could DM me.
Would be a great help.
