Heights of house cleaning

with 4 comments

Most companies refer to firing people as ‘house cleaning’. But Citi group has taken it to a completely new level. This article here mentions that they are going to fire (believe it or not)… Office cleaners!!!

I am not sure about the authenticity of the article, but if it is true, then it is darned funny! 🙂 So, they have the money to pay incentives to their executives, but cannot afford to keep their office cleaners!!! If true, then I am sure there must be some logic behind this decision… Just that it is a little difficult to find one now… Will update this post when I find the logic… 🙂

Bravo!

Good News…

I have got an admit in Queen’s School of Business. I have decided to go ahead and take up the offer.

Meanwhile, I have also started a new blog for my MBA experience. This is expected to be a more ‘professional’ blog, aimed at tracking my professional progress in the coming years. This blog will continue to be my personal blog, aimed predominantly on issues, thoughts that leave an impact on me.

Please check out my new blog – A fistful of sky.

Why have I named it ‘A fistful of sky’? Because, that is what I seek. And I hope to jump higher and higher and higher… till I get the fistful.

Cheers!

Current mood: Working

Am in the middle of the essay writing season, as a part of my Great Masters Dream. 🙂

The process of writing my SoP has been interesting to say the least. A good period of introspection, and what I really want to do with my life.

I feel every one must have his or her SoP, irrespective of whether they plan to do their Masters or not. One must always have in a piece of paper questions like:
1. What have I achieved professionally till date?
2. What are my short term goals?
3. What are my long term goals?
4. How can my current profile enable the transition?
5. How many contacts do I have, who can help me in this journey?
6. What do I need to go to the next goal?

I feel this will keep me on my feet, and help me not take myself too lightly. I see my answers changing to these questions every single time I think about them. I guess, that’s a part of growing up professionally!

Too much gyan for the day! 🙂

Cheers!
