Interview Confusion AVM Industries is a reputed company, located at greater Noida, engaged in manufacture of Electronic good. This particular company came into being in 2009, and has been steadily making progress in the arena. However, despite best efforts, in some fields it remains in not so satisfactory a stage. It is my firm belief that there is not no one better equipped than you, who has done so well in MBA, to analyze one particular areas of concern in that company, and that area of concern is ‘Selection process’, with particular reference to Interviewing candidates for different jobs. Scene 1 Yesterday I happen to listen to one conversation, which took place between Mr. Ronnie Dais (popularly known as RD) and one Mr. Deepak Kumar (DK for short). I had gone to the corporate office of AVM Industries to tie up the details of your ensuing visit to that company next week. Incidentally, RD is the Vice President of the company and is son of the owner of the company. The conversation went something like this. Gist of Conversation RD, “DK, you know I was called by the CEO last week, and he has asked me to pick up the most suitable person to conduct interviews for the appointment of Assistant Manager Marketing for the company. I am more than convinced that you are the most suitable person to conduct the interview .” DK, with the look of bewilderment reacted, “Why me Sir? I have nothing to do with the interviews. I am Scientist Class A Research and Development, and have no knowledge of Marketing related aspects.” RD, “Look DK, conduct of interviews is the simplest procedure, it requires no expertise, it requires nothing special. Just call them one by one and ask some questions and that is it. We all generally know what is marketing (He looked at me for approval and I just smiled, which he misconstrued to be an agreement with him). By the way DK, there would be 10 candidates. I do not know why figure 10.” DK continue to protest, “Sir, I feel we are making a major mistake in conducting these interviews in such a lackadaisical manner. I think our company’s repute will suffer a major dent.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
