Kabhie Xora Kabhie Kuch Aur!!!


LEAVING XORA FOR GREENER PASTURES....

Tiny drops of water makes a mighty ocean...how true! I am pondering over it while sitting at my cubicle which has resisted me more than 2 years now. It is in this context that I chose to start of the topic with the above lines. I am moving to pastures that expectedly would be much greener and wealthier..This being my last day at Xora (name of the existing company), I've decided to share some experiencs.

I am not a real job-hopper, so in case you're wondering if I make myself available for every job interview, it would be wrong. My tryst with job-hunting has always been fascinating with much of the time being wooed or booed rather by the HRs. But, hang on those pretty HRs with a 24x7 smile surely have a job to do; mind you, recruiting me isn't an easy job. I was thinking of switching over to Technical Writing when I received a call from an HR of Xora. I was asked to attend the interview sharp at 10:30 hours, and I still remember doing a last minute change to my resume.

The job location was Indiranagar and after an initial written test that tested my english grammar and html skills, a technical interview was taken. After the interview was taken, I was asked to come the following day and meet the MD. I was prompt in clearing the test and on June 9, 2004 I was given the appointment letter.

I had some very good and some horrible Xora experiences--woh Karan Johar kehta hai naa "Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham". Let's keep the good things for later purposes...

Firstly, I had this quarrel with the man who thinks he knows all 'under the sun'. I am not really sure that if this BOSSY character is going to stay like this forever. Secondly, occasional verbal fights with my Manager left me strong. But he's a real nice guy; its just that I am bad. Thirdly, some guys robbed my money and all on my way back home. Fourthly, a chauvinist of every sort who made my life miserable with his TIME MANAGEMENt

I do not remember having any verbal fights with you :-) - Your "Manager".
