Last night, I slept peacefully! Whew!! The documentation is finally over! Today was a much more important day! We had our PAT exam, a presentation on “Why TCS?”, a lecture on “Information Security”, a presentation on DOs and DON’Ts in the office and finally our posting and stream allocation! 🙂
It was another longggggg day from 10:30 am to 10:30 pm!! Today, I actually came to know that PAT exam doesn’t determine anything 😀 Your stream allocation is random and your posting preference depends on the availability!! I got Bangalore even though it was my second preference!! PAT was important before. Now it is just an exam. Still, you shouldn’t neglect studying before ILP because it can be tough to those who are unaware of the subjects being taught.
Anyway, PAT doesn’t prove anything…that’s a relief! 😀
ABOUT PAT: Just a technical pre-diagnostics test to know how much technically strong you are. You don’t need to answer everything religiously or study industriously the night before. Just relax!
We were shown to one of the labs where we were given individual systems, login id and password. Don’t try to cheat or discuss as you’ll be disqualified! :O
We got to know about the importance of information security today!! 😀 It’s all about how you can protect top secret information from attackers by following security policies and most of all, as an employee of the company, keep your client’s and organization’s information, a confidential matter! That means, put a tape on your mouth even if your best friend asks you about it! 😛 It could risk you your job and it could risk the company billions of dollars and the trust of the client! 🙂 Okay, I don’t intend on giving a class on it!! 😀
After that, we were taken through all the rules to be followed in the office! You get free tea and coffee 😀 just don’t chew gum, crowd near the canteen, throw stuff here and there, take photographs and most of all, don’t chew gums! 😐 Every moment, I get to realize that this is my job and not college!!
I got JAVA as my stream and I am quite happy about it! 😀 It’s just that the second shift from 2pm-9pm is a bit odd but you gotta be flexible! 😛
We got our schedules for the next day and my shift starts from tomorrow! That means, full learning starts from day 3!! 😀
NOTE- All the information shared here are personal experiences! It is just a way to mentally prepare my future ILP friends and not to share confidential organizational information!
