Eatonomist Job Hiring Process – Operations and Marketing Associate – Jaideep Verma
Jaideep Verma, Operations and Marketing Associate, Eatonomist shares his experience in this brief interview.
Undergraduate College: NSIT
Please tell us about your selection procedure at Eatonomist (Short listing procedure, GDs, Interviews).
I saw an opening at Eatonomist on the Delhi Startups page on Facebook. I applied for the same and sent my resume. My resume got shortlisted and I was called for an interview with the two co-founders. The interview was mostly resume based.
What and how many internships and projects you did at college? How did you get them?
None. Mentioned the mandatory college’s minor projects in the resume and explained them, if asked.
What makes this company different from other firms?
It’s a startup. That’s what makes it different. Also, I’m the third person in the company. Hence, I’m free to express my views in the company, directly to the co- founders, many of which are implemented too. I get to work in various fields and deal with various people. In short, I am getting to learn a lot in this new field.
How did you prepare for the placement season? What advice would you give to your juniors regarding the placement season?
I didn’t really prepare for the placement season. Saw some quant formulae. Since I had no interest in tech jobs, I didn’t code. If you’re looking for tech jobs, I’m not the right person to take an advice from. For non-tech, practice quant: speed, distance and time, PnC, probability, number systems, work and energy.
What’s the role of academics in getting a good placement at NSIT?
It plays a very crucial role. Try to have 60% minimum. Mine was 58, so had to face a little problem: not eligible for many companies (most of them have a 60+ criteria); telling in almost every interview about my low score.
Would you like to give any general advice to your juniors?
Keep calm and be confident. Try not to worry at all. You might see your mates getting placed before you, feel happy for them. Ignore all the negative vibes that others would give and nothing will go wrong. You’re at NSIT, feel proud and positive. There’s a company waiting for you.
Don’t die to serve them, rather concentrate on enjoying your last year which you’ll be missing like hell. They come to our campus to get us, we don’t go to them! They need us, think like that 🙂
