Yesterday was a good day. I was asked to go and be the final interview panel for the recruitment drive at our Marine Drive office. The HR Recruitment team had lined up several candidates that they had screened and usually someone from Service Delivery goes in to finalize on which ones fit the bill for our process. As they needed more people and they were running short on panelists, my manager asked me – at 4:15 am and after I had reached home post shift – if I could go and do the selecting at 2:30 pm.
I haven’t been part of conducting interviews since 2011 so I was game. I woke up by 11 am and went to Marine Drive by 2:30 pm. One of the guys there gave me the lowdown for about 20 minutes. Then I started and continued till almost 6:30pm. No breaks. I then took an Uber and went to Royal Residency as we had a function there as an R&R for the CLS team in Kochi. I was among the last to arrive and then the fun started.
After some fun & silly games and some awards given out, we started dinner and it was good. Dessert follower and we took photos and then left. I dropped one of my colleagues enroute to my home and I then proceeded to relax in my lungi and enjoy the rest of the late night before sleep hit me.
