Hey everyone, how are you ? This is the fourth story in the series Interesting and Weird Interview Experiences and all of you are giving it so much love. That’s why I’m here with the fourth story which is very much interesting and worth taking a lesson that even lying needs wit. This story is sent to us by Anshul Dhingra and this is how he narrates it :
Jan, 2007 : Rejected by Havells.
With the placement season ringing loud bells in our numb minds, we very fondly waited for various companies for placements because its the time of the year when you can see the whole college lively, other than cultural fests, of course.
On the fateful day, Havells had a very gruelsome schedule for the screening processes with 4 rounds, running from 6AM in the morning till 1AM in the night.
I was called for interview at around 11:30PM and I was fairly nervous for a couple of reasons –
A. These were pure technical mind-twisting interviews.
B. I had not SHAVED , fairly visible stubble for the interview due to the fact that i simply forgot.
Anyways, i convinced myself that I can crack this interview and fooled myself that this stubble is hardly visible . The final round was a panel interview with 4 people, that unfolded as-
Interviewer 1 – “Hello”.
Me – “Hello Everyone. May I please sit”.
Interviewer 2 – “Didn’t care to shave or have other offers in hand”?
Me – (STUMPED on the first ball) – I was scolding myself to come up with something. Something that can be perceived as truth and doesn’t look like a plain lie. I came up with this – “I live very far from my College and the written tests began at 6AM, so I had to start my day at 4AM in the morning to reach in time.”
Int 3 – “That’s Nice. How about shaving last night.”
Me – “We had a power failure last night and the whole town was blacked out. Hence, I could not shave. I could not get time today to get this shaved or could not lend the shaving kit from my Hostel friends due to back to back screening rounds.”
Everybody but the Int 2 just nodded and started asking technical questions one after the other. I answered most of those correctly and grew in confidence.
Int 2 – “Last Question for you. You have written here that you are quite a cricket buff. Everyone is a cricket lover in this country. How is your passion different to it?”
Me – (With a huge smile and metaphorical chest thumping )“Sir, I have followed cricket very religiously. At times, I have multi tasked various activities to spare time for cricket. In fact , even yesterday night, I was browsing your company’s webpage to research a little know-how while watching Ind vs WI live.”
Int 2 – “Quite a match, it was.”
Me – “Indeed Sir.”
And then it hit me.
So this is the end of this story. This has a lesson which almost everyone has given us since our childhood, never lie. And even if you lie, it needs brain. So be careful before lying.
