Interviews, the only barrier, ahead of your ultimate dream jobs, are undoubtedly the most challenging and important experience and test in one’s life. They become the rider of our destiny and one needs to grill him really hard to crack this difficult nut. The saga of emotions, thoughts, fears and feelings which one undergoes while sitting on the interview chair is difficult to explain. Today, after facing and clearing a couple of interviews, I feel glad to have gone through that rigorous hard work and preparation which is required to handle such situations and the credit of all of it, goes to none other than my college ICOFP…!!
Well, calling ICOFP as just my post-graduation college would be too less, it has become my second home. Where, I have groomed my personality and I have evolved as a better person in life.
ICOFP maintains a perfect balance between the academics and the co-curricular activities. The journey through this wonderful college will always remain very close to my heart. I never thought that the time here would become this splendid and memorable for life. In fact, I wonder now, how soon has the time flown by my side.
Being from a non-commerce background, I was a little nervous when I joined this very specialized finance course, but very soon I realized that all my worries went down the drain. The atmosphere of this place and the ease with which the faculty of college helped me to settle down here was unbelievable.
