But ultimate shock came after that when a I was taken to another room where I was told-“We have found you technicaly sound and match for TCS, but our existing project requirement does not require an professional with such high experience( I had 8 .5 years). We are keeping your profile in our internal portal so that whenever there is a match we will call u for HR round. Since you are not rejected you can keep applying to TCS, your profile is not barred” .
I asked him- why did you ask me to remain here since 2 PM then? You knew that I had experience of over 8 years but still you taken two round of interviews for nothing? He simply gave me a smile.
I am already working in a PSU and thought that people of PSU indulge themselves in dirty politics but as organization they are good. I never expected this kind of unprofessional attitude from TCS.
