    Two sessions of group discussions being kept secret by the recruiting company

    I have just completed my graduation and now will be appearing for the on-campus placements. Recently I have tried for a job in an off-campus recruitment. There when I appeared for the group discussion , it was told at the last moment that two group discussion sessions will be held. I got very nervous and thus could not perform well. How to deal with such a situation if it arises in the future?

    Hi aspirant

    Such incidents can happen with anyone and so you should not be discouraged by them in such a manner. I can understand that how you felt when you were informed of 2 group discussion sessions happening, thus putting a lot of pressure on you. But that is time of test for a candidate. You should have dealt with that situation in a brave manner and should not have succumbed to the immense pressure. But now let bygones be bygones and try and make a new beginning.

    The next time you encounter such a situation with an element of surprise, you should try and be positive and don't let negative thoughts cloud your judgement. If you be positive at that time, it will give you more strength to fight that situation and you will definitely come out as a winner.So friend next time dont be so nervous so as to spoil your chances of getting the job. You will definitely do well next time. Just be positive and give both the group discussion with utmost confidence.

    Good luck

    Hello,

    First of all,the concerned company should have given prior intimation regarding their decision of taking two consequtive group discussions.What they have done is not acceptable.On the other hand,why made you so nervous? You had to participate in one GD,second round of GD wouldnt have been a big issue.You should have taken i s a challenge and tried your level best.In life you have to face a number of unexpected situations.Everything wont come in a very predictive way.You have to have the confidence of facing them.It is not necessary that you will win everytime,but you should have the confidence to face them.Your focus now should be on campus interview.

    Hello Friend,
    You cant actually how many rounds they will conduct in the selection process ,if the number of candidates are beyond the anticipation then they have to screen out more they can only take those amount of the candidates how much they have vacancy.so inorder to reduce the overflow of huge amount of candidates they conducted twO GD rounds usually they coduct one GD round.GD is a elimination round where out of 12-15 group they take 4-5 so the number of candidates decreases a lot and it makes the other process easier.
    you should be prepare for all worse condition as it is a pretty competitive market and you cant complain about this.so be prepared well to face any situation .
    Thank You

    Hi friend,
    Do not get nervous in that type of situations. Sometimes it happens,so do not get panic at all. I can understand what you had felt when you are being informed at the last moment. But this is the time when you have to prove yourself and show others how easily,calmly and interestingly you can handle any kind of situation , whether it is easy or difficult. By this way you are proving yourself how much good you are for the company beneficial.
    Self Motivation is the most important thing you must have that time or in any uncertain situation , must help you great to prove yourself BEST. If you have confidence and are aware of all the current affairs or the relevant data , you can easily crack the GD.
    So prepare for any kind of situation occurs , will help you a lot in future .
    Thank you...
