S.S. Dalveer is one of Hyderabad’s own. Naturally, his first choice of B-school for his PGDM was Vignana Jyothi Institute of Management. Dalveer’s specialisation in PGDM was Finance and Business Analytics. After completing his graduation, he was placed with ICICI Bank as a Privilege Banker during the placement drive of the school.
Before he became the newest Privilege Banker at ICICI, he had completed his graduation with a specialization in Computers from Bhavan’s Vivekananda College.
Speaking about the interview, he says that it was a great experience facing the recruiters. It was like over coming barriers to get to where he wanted to be. There was a group discussion, a round of personal interview and a psychometric test.
About his experience with the recruitment team, he says that their main focus was on the specialisation. They asked him certain questions relating to finance and to prepare for that he had gone through the internship report and the basic concepts thought in the class.
Keeping his preparation side, he acknowledges that his behaviour has changed. He began as a student and progressed to being a professional. Finding a job made him feel confident about himself. VJIM truly helped him become a better person by facing the challenges.
The one thing he wants to do differently at his job place would be being a good team leader and fulfil the responsibilities assigned to him. His SIP was with Sharekhan, Hyderabad. The focus of his project was primarily on Mutual funds. The time he spent at Sharekhan was very constructive in shaping him up as a budding professional.
He describes joining VJIM as the best thing to happen to him. He even won “speaker of the day” during the orientation program at the beginning of the college term. That was the first step towards him gaining confidence.
So deep are the bonds he made at VJIM that he tell us that his best friend Bhavanjan informed his family about his placement success. Such is the bond developed over two years! What he thinks made a difference in the interview was his “honesty, tenacity and perseverance”.
As his parting message to his juniors, he would want them to stay alert and informed. “Recruiters are on a lookout for a candidate who is updated on current affairs, sentence building, vocabulary, interview etiquettes, focus on aptitude and attitude, more importantly on group discussion,” says Dalveer. “Practicing more and more will give you much needed confidence and morale boost,” he adds.
