Subject: [CHETANA] I got a job in COVANSYS

hello friends,
i am a fresher passed out in 2003.i got a job in Covansys and i will be joining very shortly. thanks to all of those who helped me to achieve this. i got lot of information through this group only. the work done by Chetana is something great that i am unable to express in words. to tell how efficient this group is,i get more info about jobs for freshers than any other group. my friends have subscribed to various jobsites, but still i get the more info than my friends. 

before going in detail about the process i wish to tell something it takes only 5 min. i am fresher from electrical engineering and wish to enter software industry. not many IT companies prefer electrical engineers. but still i didnt give up. u wont believe, i attended 17 companies and failed everytime to make it. whenever i get frustrated i used to read few quotes which i have it in my desktop. i have given them for u to gain confidence. everyone would have read that but they would have ignored. it was sent by one of our friend Mr.Suri in this group.

i take this oppurtunity to thank him for sending such a magical thing that brought a change in my life.

1. In 1962, four nervous young musicians played their first record audition for the executives of the Decca recording Company. The executives were not impressed. While turning down this group of musicians, one executive said, "We don't like their sound. Groups of guitars are on the way out." The group was called The Beatles.

2. In 1944, Emmeline Snively, director of the Blue Book Modeling Agency, told modeling hopeful Ms. N J Baker, "You'd better learn secretarial work or else get married." She went on and became Marilyn Monroe.

3. In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry, Fired a singer after one performance. He told him, "You ain't goin' nowhere.... son. You ought to go back to drivin' a truck. He went on to become the most popular singer in America named Elvis Presley.

4. When Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone in 1876, it did not ring off the hook with calls from potential backers. After making a demonstration call, President Rutherford Hayes said, "That's an amazing invention, but who would ever want to use one of them?" .... Can u now imagine the world without it!?!?!?!

5. When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb & It just happened to be a 2000-step process."

6. In the 1940s, another young inventor named Chester Carlson took his idea to 20 corporations, including some of the biggest in the country. They all turned him down. In 1947 -after seven long years of rejections! He finally got a tiny company in Rochester, New York, the Haloid company, to purchase the rights to his invention an electrostatic
paper-copying process. Haloid became Xerox Corporation we know today.

Just compare this with our failures. We don't know how many steps we have to walk before reaching our success. All that we could do is try, try and try. If u had failed for the 21st time. Fine. Your success might be waiting at the 22 or 25th time. Keep this is mind.

two days after the interview i got the mail that i have been selected.

thats it about covansys.

i wish everyone all the best and i conclude by saying one thing  - NEVER NEVER NEVER GIVE UP
