Part VIII – Rosy Picture
The article is dedicated to one of my very close client and friend Ranbhir. The article is evolved after three weeks discussion. Ranbhir finds easy to get a call for interviews and cracking is like breaking tip of ice berg. Recently, he had many offers and challenge was decide which on to take up. Most interviewers sold the job profile, once they identified he is a potential candidate.
The challenge in such situation to identify a better fitment. The following analysis will give some insight to zero down a offer from a pool of offers. Dr. Bell is well known for his observation and deduction. He would dip a finger into a foul-smelling liquid and then put his finger into his mouth in class, and he would instruct his students to do the same. As the students grimaced, Dr. Bell would point out that while he had placed his index finger into the awful brew, it was his middle finger that found its way to his mouth.
Office parking lot, space, floors, walls, paintings, nameplates, receptionists, operators etc will send a different message. Be clear about what you want. For example, if you want a fast pace and advancement, look at the ages of executives. If you want a hierarchy, look for those reserved parking places and nameplates. If you want a bottoms-up organization, see if the receptionist treats the president just like everyone else. Such clues will tell you a lot about a company, and much more than one will learn from a sale pitch by an interviewer.
