8. You are being interviewed for a position at a prestigious company. 


Myself (M): M Four board members (BM 1, BM 2, BM 3 and BM 4). 

M: (Door, half open) May I come in, Sir? 

BM 4:Yes, come in and please take your seat. 

M :Thank you, Sir, and a pleasant morning to all of you. 

BM1:Well, your name is Peter Parker and you are from Nagaland. 

M : Yes Sir, you are absolutely correct and Peter is my short name, you can call me so if it suits you all. 

BM 2:Peter, can you enlighten us by sharing something about yourself? 

M :Sure Sir, My name is Peter Parker and I am from Nagaland. I am a graduate from Arts background. I did my graduation from Kohima Arts College Nagaland, in the year 2013. I have a Diploma in Computer Application from NIIT Nagaland, which I took in the year 2012.

BM 3 : Quite an impressive resume, it seems you were quite busy after your graduation. 

M:Yes Sir. I have been working in the Co-operate sector in Delhi right after my graduation 

BM 4: Peter, I wonder why you have chosen to work in a co-operate sector rather than doing a comfortable Govt. job back home in Nagaland. 

M: That’s a brilliant question Sir. There is a huge difference between working in a Govt. set up and co-operate set up. In government job there is security, once a person gets a government job, there is no way he will be terminated from the job. But in government job the level of competition is less and to explore one’s potential is limited and it makes them lazy and dull. 

Working in a co-operate sector demands everything from us. Competition is fierce, pressure is there, but that helps the employees to explore his own potential, overcome many challenges, become more creative, active and become mentally sharp. There is more benefit working in a big renowned company then working in a government set up. That is my belief and my honest opinion. 

BM 2 :Well, Peter, that’s a brilliant answer, you are the first person to come out with a perfect answer. 

M:Thank you for the compliment, Sir, it is quite encouraging.

BM 3:Peter do you have any knowledge about the nature of work that our Company is involved in?

M:Yes, Sir, your company deals in outsourcing job. both inbound and outbound. The Company chiefly works for three powerful countries: America, Great Britain and Australia. Therefore, your company requires individuals who are fluent in English, good in diction and

has convincing skills.

BM 4: Peter it was a pleasure talking with you, we like your confidence and we have also seen the potential in you, but as we have more candidates to be interviewed so please be patient and we will call you.

M: Thank you all, Sirs.

Me:So, what kind of a place is it?
