Ujjwal Deep Agarwal
Hello ma'am, I wanted to ask what should be right strategy to tackle the exam, in terms of which section to start first and how much time to invest in each section.
Also, may you please share some tips for essay writing :)
Start with the section you are confident with and then move on to a tough section.
How to boost up the preparation? I have reached saturation level after good performance in CAT and today after getting shortlisted in iift.
This will help you ease into the exam
For Essay use frameworks for essay writing like PESTLE etc. to cover all aspects ( Only if relevant) .Also do not take sides, give a holistic view
Nirdesh , since you have had a good innings, continue the good work. Take a short break if that helps , also XAT requires different perpetration for DM, so ensure that you have that covered
Thanx Ms Nitya. My major interest is in Operations/Supply chain management. Actually I am working in Supply chain management department (2 years) in Maruti Suzuki. Can you give me the names of some good college particularly for ops/SCM apart from NITIE?
2 years* will be completed in July 2018
NITIE is the main college, apart from that there are a few Ops Roles , if your entire focus is on Ops it is best to choose that . Having said so there are a few Ops roles that come to every campus, maybe you can find out about these roles and narrow down on the campus
Will my work ex of 2 years in SCM restrict me to only ops/SCM roles? Do I have equal chances in finance, GM, consultancy etc roles based on my GPA and majors at IIM/XLRI?
You have an equal chance in Consult and Fin Roles, while Marketing might prefer candidates with lower work-ex
Thankyou for clearing query even it was off the topic. :-)
If it's allowed to you to answer, can you tell me who get better salary: work ex (1-2.5 years) or freshers ? (Overall by Excluding exceptional cases)
It is not such a simple equation , consult jobs usually pay the highest and freshers /Work-Ex people anyone can get one
