The summers story. A seven year old e-mail. Few words!

Was going through some past emails when I found this one sent to me on one fine day of October 2013. Upon receiving it, I was totally surprised! This was an old email that I had sent to my batch in the year 2008 and I didn't know that it was being passed on from one batch to another for multiple years!

Hi PG13,

I hope this will encourage those "unLUCKY" fellows and you all will value this mail that have been passed to each and every batch from 2008.

Dear all,

Looking at your summer placements taking place many of us are really happy for you.
But I can empathize for the poor souls who still haven't managed to get placed for the summers.
Last year I had got selected in IFMR,centre for micro finance after getting rejected in final interviews of 9 big companies but i guess that was truly the best thing that happened to me.

I had written the following mail to my batch on last day of slot zero last year.
Things are different this year but i still decided to share it with you all.

Hi friends,

D winning horse doesn't know y it is being whipped so hard...
So if you are finding yourself in a lot of pain right now,
then believe that God is your rider and wants you to win!!!!

Kudos to all those who got placed in slot 0.
But for all those who did not get placed a bigger congratulations because what you learn out of this is a lot more!!!!

We learn when we get to know that we are not shortlisted and we still
remain positive for the next shortlist..

We learn when we give final interviews and create positive impressions in
our mind that this is the company that will select me..then when rejection
comes we replace this company with the next one..

We learn when each day we get back to our rooms knowing that our neighbors
and classmates have got placed and we haven't but we still manage to meet
them with a smile..

We learn each time we get up and wear the same formal clothes and tell
ourself in the mirror that this is going to be my day today..and we do
this each coming day..

We learn when many of us know that we are actually slot 0 material but we
are still not finding a place in the final selection list...



So congratulations to all those who haven't got placed because you have
gained a lot more!!!!

We will all surely celebrate and celebrate it big when our whole batch
gets placed and not just our whole batch but even our seniors batch! We
wish them all the very best for their final placements!

Thanks and regards,

Chaitanya Jha
