Hi all,
I just have one ques. in mind which I want 2 discuss with all of you:
"Is it necessary for a fresher to get a good job with good profile & company he/she must be from a good B-School only?".
I agree that calibre does matter in getting a job but does it really matters in reality in our coporate world? When a person from average B-School went for a interview proves his/her calibre to the company but that person is not preferred when the company is getting a person from a good B-School(who have less calibre as compared to average B-School person). Why it is so? Why companies prefre branded freshers with less calibre as compared to non-branded freshers with good calibre?Ain't some of us has faced with these type of situations?Nothing Personal
"My purpose of this post is not to ques. the good B-School students calibre and their B-Schools. It is just a query that arouse in my mind and what i have seen in the coporate world".Nothing Personal.

Good question Ishita......
I always had this same question in mind and used to have debates with friends as to why
"candidates from a good reputed B-School with no exp and less skills absorbed than candidates from other non -reputed B-School with or without exp but good confidence and good skills??????"
There are many companies i've known (I don't want to name them), they give first preference to candidates from Good Reputed B-Schools only !!!!!!!

I agree with both of you.
But at the same time experience & knowledge also matters. I am pursuing my MBA - HR ( distance mode). But still I am working as a HR- exec in one of the brand company. It took me 19 months to reach at this position after my B. SC. . I am throwing any superiority but just want to encourage you. That hard work pays. Extend your knowledge and keep hardworking , u will success :)

I truly agree that experience and knoweldge matters and it really carries weightage too !!!!!!
I also agree with your suggestion that you have done BSc and now working as HR Executive and it took 19 months for you to reach a particular position in HR.
Even i know that i have to work hard, gain experience and knowledge to reach my goal or a certain position in life!!!!
But my question is that a fresher with NIL experience after his grads, and then MBA from a very reputed B-School gets placed in a very top 10 companies and in the end is not being successful as his skill and confidence level is not upto the mark!!!!!!
So why not these top 10 companies select other candidates with experience or candidates- freshers from non reputed B-School??????

hi all,
I do agree with paromita as this specialy confronted by freshers who are abt to start there career. I do agree that hard work pays off as manish has given his example and i hav seen others also. Bt wat abt those hard working students/freshers who can't get a good company/job just bcoz of their non branded institute inspite of clearing all rounds of interview sucessfully bt at last being rejected just bcoz company is getting a branded institute student in lieu of that non branded candidate.
Does they read other author books or sme different books? as standard and most refrerred book for marketing is of PHILIP KOTLER(JUST AN EXAMPLE)

COFFEE is available for
Rs.5/- at roadside stall
Rs.10/- at a decent normal restaurant
Rs.50/- at barista cafe etc.
Rs.100/ or more at top class 5 star hotels.
But a high class business man would prefer the coffee of a 5 star hotel even though the coffee at roadside stall is more good.
Same with B Schools only.
Each thing has its own status, and should never be compared with others.

The perception (lets not debate if the perception itself is good or bad) that prevails in the society, is that B Schools charge so much not only to teach subjects but to groom them in to best proffessionals.

If big companies had not witnessed or experienced this quality in candidates from B schools, why would they go in for students of B schools in the forth coming years too... After all in today's competitive world, to sustain in business and make profits, they cannot afford to take candidates from B schools just for the heck of it.

I do not underestimate non-B school students since they form the major chunk of proffessionals in India. However, comparing B School students to Non-B School students itself is a wrong comparison and it is like comparing an Apple to an orange. As much as an apple has its own good qualities so does an orange has. If I am 100% convinced that I require an Apple only for my own health reasons, I surely will not opt for Orange. At the same time, if an Orange suffices my requirement, why would I go in for an Apple.

It is all in the manner each one of us see and our requirements that demand, rather than a generalised debate without exact facts in hand on B-Schools and Non B Schools.

Let's focus on the requirement in hand and source the right apple or orange and keep moving ahead as proffessionals which will be more productive and prove that all of us from Non B Schools are also achievers
