Microsoft released a new internship upadte for our college!!

with 3 comments


Microsoft had come to NIT-Trichy for placements last semester and they were also looking for intership . So we the third year comp-sci s were  asked to take a written test( which also happened to be the same written test as the one for final year students sitting for placements) . We were told that the list of selected students for interview would be announced in few weeks. The test was a easy one and so I was pretty much hoping to get called for interview. But the results came after about a month and to my surprise my name wasnt there and so were couple of other probable names (nutty , akhil and so) . I remembered murphy 😛 . The guys who got selected for the interview round were happy and had begun the preps for interview . But there was not further notification until one day they said they are gonna have one more written elimination round . And so these people again began their preparations ( I can clearly remember few of them who bunked a couple of things for preparing for this elimination round) . Curse the murphy law, the written test was called off the last minute and there was further no notification of what its gonna be like.

And all of a sudden now microsoft sends a new list now telling they  have scrapped of the first list they  had earlier announced and released a new list. I was happy that the new list  published  , had my name .But ,what about all those people who had been preparing. You cant all of  a sudden show an opportunity and take it away( keeping a sweet in ur lips and takin it off ). And how can some MNC like microsoft make a mistake in their selection process to this extent.

Now this is something that microsoft has been doing for ages. They release an OS and then later release a million security updates and patches. I heard about the recent IE security update where they all of a sudden discover that the web browser millions of people around the world use is no more secure and release a critical update for it .

A software is ok to do somthing like that , but not people.And i hope they dont announce another new list in the coming days 😛

  2. As a matter of fact they can actually do that ! Its just unprofessional to do so ! In fact one can’t complain even if they offered an intern and then later cancelled. Its just plain luck to get qualified once and disqualified the next time but happens 🙂
