On 22nd Jan 2017, VSM Thane organized its calendar event ‘Mock Interviews’ for the Engineering students. 19 students participated in this event. This is the third consecutive year, VSM has been conducting this activity, with more response and commitment year on year.
This year an Aptitude test was conducted in addition to the HR & Technical Interviews. Thus, the format was exactly similar to the campus/job interviews. HR experts Mr Abhay Gadiyar and Mr Abhay Damle advised the students on how to make precise and short self introduction, how to answer awkward questions like expectation
of salary and the dos and don’ts in general at the time of interview. Experts from individual Technical fields included Mr Suhas Deoghare & Mr Rahul Vaidya (Information Technology), Mr Manoj Khare (Electronics/Electrical), Mr Sanjay Balegaonkar (Chemical/ Mechanical) and Mr Vibhavari Joshi (Civil). They conducted the Technical Interviews and guided the students on understanding their strength and weaknesses; advising them on the finer points of facing an interview with confidence.
After the in-depth analysis of the aptitude test & technical interviews by faculty, students were
guided about further improvement on the core subjects along-with vocabulary and/or interview skills necessary for a successful interview.
The feedback of one of our student:
“I am Hemant Teli. I’ve attended the mock interview workshop. It was really nice experience for me. Aptitude test was really good for everyone as we all got idea about our weak areas in English vocabulary, Maths and logical thinking. I will definitely try to improve my performance for third year. I will try to work on the important points told by the interviewers.”
Such initiatives are aimed towards converging VSM’s basic purpose of educating students to a logical end by helping student secure good jobs and eventually settle in life.
