Let me introduce myself to the new skills test warriors, I was one of the winner of PPPC-02, Active participant winner of Skills Test-2009, and also one of the winner of Skills Test 2010. My two years learning at this platform made me a regular visitor and above all a family member of Pharmainfo. Net. Today I am here again to share some with you people about the recent campus recruitment which had happened on 24th Jan 2010 at our college i.e. AU College of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Andhra University; by one of the esteemed MNC Dr. Reddy's where all the final year B.Pharm and final year M. Pharm (Pharmaceutics) branch students were called for. Around 34 B.Pharm students and 14 M. Pharm students had taken part in it.
The day started with an introductory lecture about Dr. Reddy's by the senior HR manager the entire lecture focused on the key issues of Dr. Reddy's talent acquisition pool, their brands, economic status of the company, its recent acquisitions etc etc...and ended with an interactive session, were most of us classmates came up with some interesting questions including me.....
The entire recruitment process happened in three stages:
?It is for 100 marks of which 50 are technical and 50 aptitude oriented questions.
?In which 34 B.Pharm students attended and 27 were qualified, in parallel 12 M.Pharm students were also qualified out of 14 members.
2.Group Discussion (GD):
?In which we were given a specific topic to discuss among ourselves for five min in presence of HR people, finally each person was given 30 sec to give a conclusion talk.
?The 27 students were divided into three batches according to the priority of marks scored in written test and GD had been conducted, out of nine members in each branch five were selected , so totally 15 were been forwarded to the final phase.
?There were no GD step for M.Pharm students
?It includes both technical and HR phase. We had many common questions like:
Tell us about yourself?
What do you know about Dr. Reddy's?
What's your academic CGPA and your position in your class?
What's your favorite subject and discuss a topic of your interest from it?
Who was your role model?
What are your future goals? etc etc.....
The result is 6 Boys from B.Pharm namely Santosh kumar (myself), Kiran, Sandeep, Ajay, Vijay, Md. Asif and 2 Boys from M.Pharm namely Sailesh, Ajay (students of Prof. J. Vijaya Ratna madam) were selected. Six girls from B. Pharm and three girls from M. Pharm were in the waiting list, it was said that they will be called on when their exists any vacancy.
I was very much delighted because I was also one of them, moreover I was at the top of list in each and every stage of announcement, and it made me so proud.
On behalf of all the selected candidates, I thank the Dr. Reddy's team and our teachers especially Prof. KV Ramana Murthy sir (Placement Officer) and Dr. G. Girija Shankar sir (Asst. Placement officer) for guiding us to this job, and I extend my thanks to all our other teachers for the excellent support and inspiration which you had given us... Personally my respects to my gurus Prof J. Vijaya Ratna madam (My leader in Skills Test 2010) and Prof. K. V. Ramana Murthy sir (My leader in Skills Test 2009 & Guide in PPPC-02) who were the reason to my excellence....
