Hi, I'm Azim Joshi, a student of MIME. I got placed in HDFC Bank Ltd. as a Relationship Manager. I'm thankful to MIME for providing me a platform where I was able to hone my skills, develop myself and emerge out with flying colors. MIME has always been supportive throughout my journey. The Director Sir, has always guided and motivated me, to bring out the best in me.
The faculty are really thoughtful in imparting the best of their knowledge to their students and be practical at the same time. The placement department conducted aptitude classes for us which were very helpful. They also conducted group discussions and mock personal interviews to prepare us to face the real interviews.
During the month of November, it was announced that HDFC Bank Ltd. was going to visit our campus. The first round was the aptitude round. There were various questions asked regarding quantitative aptitude, verbal ability, logical reasoning and data interpretation. In the interview, there were two rounds. First, was the group discussion and the other was the personal interview which was more of a kind of a stress interview.
In the group discussion, we had a group of 10 people and we had to speak on different topics. In the personal interview, we were asked different questions like, "Why do you want to join this company?" and "Tell me something about yourself." As I'm an engineering graduate, I was asked, why I had chosen PGDM over engineering and what makes me more successful in the management field rather than a technical one. It was a little challenging for me because I was not prepared for it, but somehow the motivation that I got from the faculty and the placement department of MIME helped me build up my confidence and I was able to clear the interview. I'm proud to be a student of MIME and I really want to thank the placement department as well as MIME, for being so supportive, throughout my journey.
