That Awesome Feel by Prashant Pinto !!!

It was the morning of September 13th 2014, The 4th
floor at NMAM institute of technology was packed with final year engineering
students, anxiously waiting for the online test to start. The online test was
the first round in the recruitment process for Oracle on demand, one of the
largest companies to visit our campus and me and my friends were all set to
make it into this company. The test went well for most of us. Following this
was a 5 day wait before the results were out and it was such a delight to have
my name among the 66 selected students.

On the morning of September 18th we had a
wonderful and encouraging pre-placement talk by the Oracle recruitment team. Soon
after this, the interviews began. I fell in the last batch which meant that my
interview would be taken pretty late. The waiting time was spent in revisions
and puzzle solving to keep the nervousness at bay. Finally at 7 pm I was called
in for my interview. It was a 15 minute Q&A session encompassing most of my
academics which I believe I answered with confidence and clarity.

30 students were selected for the second round of interviews
and I was one among them. The very next day I was one of the first few to be
called in for my interview. This one consisted of a quick technical round which
I was able to clear comfortably. By this time my confidence level had risen pretty
high. I was then called in for my HR round, which was quite a pleasant and
comforting discussion.

In the evening came the results. All of us listened with our
fingers crossed as 16 names were called out. What an awesome feeling it was to
hear not just mine but also my friends names being read out. Nothing could hold
me from jumping around with joy. Congratulations and good wishes followed.

That awesome feel is still there and it will take a while
for this feeling to subside. Looking forward to some great times at
