Now, what happened was I was one of the first people who got done with all my interviews, and some of them were rescheduled to the next day owing to time constraints. My interviewer did not give my feedback to the Recruiting Person, and my verdict was kept pending for more than a week. In essence, from 16th Aug, 2021 to 30th Aug, 2021 (The day I’m writing this article) I have been kept waiting for my results. Whilst all the others were given their verdict. Meanwhile, during this waiting period I got placed in another company and as per my college policy, would have been allowed to accept the ZS offer only if it came on the same day as my other company’s result day.
Lastly, 19 (7 Boys, 12 Girls) got placed at ZS, and I still don’t know if I am one of them. If you’re applying, make sure you have God-level patience.
- Apply to ZS Associates if you have good communication skills & are interested in semi-technical roles.
- Make sure you are very good at SQL.
- Practice lots of puzzles and guesstimates (however I was not asked even one).
- Pray that you’re lucky.
- Connect with me on LinkedIn (Search ‘Param Shendekar KJSCE’) if you have any more doubts.
