Is there a provision to provide case-studies based questionnaires or are these just objective questions.

For senior level people, we would generally evaluate based on case-studies rather than plain objective questionnaires

Associate Manager in [Company name removed] generally plays a role between Team Lead and Manager. You would be expected to have architect knowledge as well as basic project management skills. In addition, some people management skills would be considered an advantage.

Hi Trupti,

Don't mind but I am not sure, if these are the kind of questions that you need to seek inputs from people for.

Aren't we mature enough to take such decisions on our own?

Moderators,
My feeling is these kind of questions dilute the importance of other discussions in the Jobs forum.

your call.

You have been wronged. Your manager is probably not good enough to give more weightage to "technical skills" than to "attitude".

Well look around. With your attitude, I am sure you would find better roles.

Hey Mark,

While the discussion in the thread pointed by you may be relevant for US jobs, in the Indian context,especially at junior/mid levels, it does not well hold true. Maybe for senior positions, the suggestion in the referred thread is relevant.

To reply to the person who posted this, well I don't think you have much of a choice than to quote the salary.

Most job discussions do not go ahead if the expected salary/current salary of the person is much higher than what is the average in the new company. Its a waste of time for both the candidate and the company to continue in that case.

If you sal is already low, companies may hire you(subject to your skills definitely) in favour to another candidate who demands a higher salary.

Sad, but true. This is the way how it works for most Indian software companies. Exception being probably product companies.

I have walked out virtually in a telephonic interview but not before I gave the interviewer my piece of mind.

The interviewer unfortunately was junior to me in designation (had more years of experience though) and was asking meaningless questions on how many lines of code / classes have you written so far. Why do you want a managerial role, I have more experience than you and crap.

Poor guy got zapped when I started counter questioning him on what he will achieve by asking these meaningless questions.

To the moderators,

While I personally agree that the forum was deviating from its purpose due to irrelevant and too many queries, I am afraid the new rule actually makes the forum lose its purpose.

The very fact that people are moving to alternate sites like orkut, yahoogroups depicts that people did really use this forum to analyze, compare and decide on companies which cannot done just by describing companies.

The discussions were getting more and more oriented towards Indian companies and probably may have caused the forum look "less global" in nature.

May I suggest creating a new forum for India specific job queries? I volunteer to moderate the same, but need to know the procedure and requisites for creating a new forum.

I also invite other fellow Java Ranchers who would be interested in helping me out with this purpose.

Way to go Mark.

I completely agree with you on this. The sheer number of threads make this forum useless, since if I post a thread today, within the next 10 minutes, it disappears to the next page and hence out of visibility of people who could have responded.

While, more threads are good news for a forum, too many useless thread defeat the purpose.

I know of only one reliable site for Salary data. Its called javaranch.com.

After all its real people providing real data. You will find loads of threads on this.

Moderator, If ppl are willing to share data anonymously on years of experience, skillsets, location and salary. Can we collate these using some tools and present on the site? What I mean is, currently the data is in the form of threads, can it be done programatically and presented properly using some software from the site (built in survey tools ?)..


Any supporters for my idea???

So amdocs does not do product development in Pune? Amdocs is big in telecom billing. I always thought they do their product development over there. If that is the case, then it should be good work.

If the company exceeds the period in which they have asked to get back to you by a week. Please call them up with relevant information. The rate at which companies are recruiting these days, its more of human errors in the recruitment procedure rather than a subtle revokar of the offer by the company.

Thats completely incorrect. I have worked with acccenture for years and have personally conducted interviews. Its definitely not outsources, at least it wasnt till the time I was there(which is quite recent).

Anyways although I do not completely endorse the comments above, I won't be surprised if they are true

Agree with Udaya. Infacts its more beneficial for the employer than the employee. Since having a laptop automatically entitles your boss to interrupt you at night and make you work over the VPN in case of burning issues
