Unconventional Grabbers

by BIBS Blog

Can you recall the last time you went through an interview?

Well, interviews have always been a nightmare.

Gone are the days of stiff cover letters and awkward interviews. Recruiting isn’t what it used to be. Some companies have thought of giving the interviewees an entirely different feeling and making interviews delightful.

Form adding games as a part of the recruiting process to actively looking for talent in unusual places, let’s check out the most innovative ways through which some organizations recruit:

It’s Party Time

Lights, Camera, Action!!  W Goa, part of the iconic W Hotels, a luxury hotel chain owned by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide concluded India’s ‘first-of-its-kind’ recruitment search with a “Night Casting” – selecting their talent in a spectacle of music, lights and entertainment at night party.


Held in the ballroom of The St. Regis, Mumbai, the venue was transformed in a cosmopolitan vibe with music and signature mocktails being served to the potential candidates.

Further to the Casting Night events, the Casting Call continues and interested candidates are welcome to apply by submitting their profile, photos that best represent their personality and a short write up about what makes them the right fit for the job and they are judged on their persona, inter-personal skills and attitude.

  • From Roadside to Workshop

Volkswagen which had a vast segmentation of four wheelers, expanded their scope of recruitment as well.

Breaking through the conventional ways of hiring, Volkswagen purposefully distributes damaged vehicles to the garage across Germany concealing a job advert on the undercarriage of each.

The mechanics of the different shops had an idea about the owners of the cars and they repair and re-model them as per their skills and creativity.Who-so-ever have observed the advertisement have applied for the job as well.

This makes the company easy to shortlist the CV’s on the basis of the genuine talent of the mechanics who have applied for the positions!


  • Let’s Play a Game

Imagine how exciting it could be to get selected for a job by playing just a game? The famous Marriott hotels and resorts being one of the most successful brands in hospitality business has come up with a unique method of employment.

In attempt to recruit more employees as well as attract applicants for international branches, Marriott launched the “My Marriott Hotel” game. Players manage a virtual hotel restaurant kitchen, purchase supplies on a budget and manage employees as well.


Whoever is interested to apply for the job can click on the “try it for real” button on the top corner of the game, which redirects them to the company’s career site.

Marriott screened the applicants by their performance in the game and invited for further rounds.

  • Back to schooldays

Imagine the prime numbers can help you to land in hiring table?

Google came up with a billboard in Silicon Valley that read

{first 10-digit prime found in consecutive digits of e}.com”.

Brainiacs who calculated the answer to the mathematical puzzle knew the billboard directed them to www.7427466391.com. And when they visited the site, they were presented with another challenge. Only those who entered the correct answer were re-directed to a page that said:

“Nice work. Well done. Mazel tov. You’ve made it to Google Labs and we’re glad you’re here. One thing we learned while building Google is that it’s easier to find what you’re looking for if it comes looking for you. What we’re looking for are the best engineers in the world. And here you are.”


In addition to engaging the right audience, the puzzle worked as an effective filter for the applicant pool. This left Google with a group of candidates that clearly enjoyed and excelled at solving complex puzzles.

Now that you know of the creative recruitment campaigns, which one has made an impression on you? Look out for the next company interview you appear for .

He Who has Health has Hope, And He Who Has Hope, Has everything.

by BIBS Blog

But sadly, we often fail to know the value until and unless we lose it. Being an MBA student, stress and balancing job and studies along with my personal life did put a toll on my health. Skipping meals, eating out, clubbing or partying, travelling and not to forget late night studies clubbed with social media did have its effect on me. It was during my idle time in bed with my endless dates with Doctors and medicines that I realized that neglecting health was definitely a bad idea. Here are some tips to stay healthy while you prepare yourself for a better future.
Eat Healthy

A golden rule, simply take your food (healthy please, and not ‘chai’ or fried snacks on the go) on time. Take a heavy breakfast first thing in the morning and if possible replace your dose of caffeine with some milk. Add fresh vegetables to your diet and you will feel the change within a month. Or why not start a club to preach others to incorporate fresh vegetables and healthy food in their diet. The more the merrier.
Exercise your Way

Eating healthy is never enough. Get up early in the morning and go out for a walk or exercise for just 20 minutes. Ofcourse you can spare 20 minutes for yourself. If you feel lazy ask your friends to join as well. Take a walk around the Lake area before or after your classes, or simply walk your way from metro to your college and walk back to the station at the end of the day. That way, it will be fun and even your friends will incorporate some healthy habit in their routine. After all sharing is caring. A healthy body and a healthy mind will automatically result in a better and balanced life for all of you.

Rest Adequately
In case if you are wondering, how to wake up early for the exercise sessions, just skip all your late night activities and sleep early. Know your limitations. I know many, who would say, they don’t have the time to get a good 7+ hours of sleep since they have many things to juggle. But if you ask me, speaking from experience a good night’s sleep will ease up a lot of thing. Don’t leave your assignments for the last moments. Most of the MBA schools allots ample amount of time to complete your assignments. Simply plan properly and you will soon learn to manage your time efficiently.Taking rest for adequate hours will simply boost up your productivity and juggling will become an easy affair for you. Remember, even superheroes need to rest.

Limit your Hours Of ‘Socialization’
Stay away from your mobile phone for atleast an hour. If you want to have a chat, chat in person not via web. If you want to spend your free time, indulge in your hobby (not gaming, please) or spend some family time. This will reduce your stress and make you feel happy. If you want to discuss your studies meet up your MBA mates and go for group studies. This way, you will be able to study together, help each other to sort out any doubts and also occasional chatting in between will simply keep you refreshed. After all mental health is also important. And a better mental health means better productivity in work and your MBA classes as well.

The Normal Norms
Maintain hygiene, stay away from caffeine and nicotine, keep a positive approach and take regular break from your daily life and travel a lot to stay healthy. An occasional stroll amidst the Nature in the Rabindra Sarobar region will simply help you relax and stay connected to yourself.
Start leading a healthy and happy life. If possible start a health club, as your batch mates to join. This will make it all fun and enjoyable and will lead to a healthier, more productive and hence a better life.

OLE- Out Bound Learning Experience

by BIBS Blog
September 10, 2016

Dipanjali, Deepsikha and Shayak are sitting together brainstorming how to build up a self-standing catapult.

Dipanjali:             Do you know how to build a catapult?

Do you even know what a catapult is in the first place?

Shayak:               Of course I know. I will build one and show it to you.

Deepshikha:       Oh man! How to make it work.

Dipanjali:             Why don’t you focus on the trigger more!

Shayak:               Why are they making us do all this stuff? How does this going to help us with management studies ??

That was exactly the scenario on 23rd, the day before OLE


OLE! Gives us a funny reminder of the 90’s Bollywood song but on 24th   Aug, it had a different meaning altogether.

OLE or Outbound Learning Expedition, one of the famous annual event of BIBS which comes up with certain learnings through humungous fun and excitement.

students-posing-during-the-event students-participating-in-skit


Four teams with some vibrant names like Chartreus Chryoprase, Black Bloodstone, Tangerine Tigereye, Blue Beryl headed to a picturesque location called Monobitan Resort at Joka at 7.30 am. And the event took off with a yummy refreshments followed by photo session which also came as a sport when we had to climb up a really muddy highland which made us topple down, as well.

Now, for the outbound learnings we turned out towards the several games that were lined up with some exciting learnings. All this started up with most brainstormed and strategized game, Catapult which was intended to give us the idea of co-ordination and time management. So as the other games, say for Paper tower, Log Ski or Pipe-the-ball had such similar line of lessons in store for us.


After all the sweat and hard work we were delighted with a sumptuous lunch. Finally came the most awaited part, guess what- the adorning skit, a short play revolving around the booming topics. Skits had it all, starting from hilarious projection of Baba Ramdev to dentists of Stone Age leading to a serious issue of women harassment. Last presentation that was in store was the mesmerising medley from the all the teams and so was the dance performance.

Finally the breath-taking moment of the announcement of the results for the came and guess what, Black bloodstone took the trophy home. After the event we all received lots of appreciation for our efforts, team spirit and enthusiasm from Mr.Vidur Kapoor, the Chairman of BIBS.

Though the day ended with lots of emotion, both of joy and disappointment but we all came back with lots of learnings and realisation but above all we had fun and enjoyed ourselves to the fullest!!

Musings Of A Management Graduate On The Eve Of An Interview

by BIBS Blog

Tick Tock – Tick Tock – even though the sound is familiar, and tells me that time is flowing, the hands of the clock, when I look at them, seem stuck in their place perennially. Seems like cruel time is playing with my emotions.


As I look out of the window into the calmness of the night, my heart beat sounds to me like the hoof beats of a stallion as it races into a storm. Suddenly, yes suddenly it seems that I have reached a milestone in life.

Tomorrow, I look to rise, I look to achieve, I look to become – I face my Final Interview for my MBA Final Placements in a Big Company, yes!! A very big company. Something no one in the town which I come from, can even dream of thinking about as a career option.

Suddenly it dawns on me that I have completed a circle. A circle which started 24 months ago, when even my parents weren’t sure if I was fit to do an MBA.

Bangla Medium theke paash korechish, M.Com kore chakri khonj” was my father’s contemptuous remark when I presented the idea of an MBA.

You have studied in your school with Bengali as your primary language of education; like most of your peers, just go and apply for a run-of-the-mill desk job!”> His typical, middle class mindset could not understand how someone from a small town with almost no English speaking prowess could nurture aspirations to be part of top notch multinational companies. I felt extremely downcast by this treatment of my dreams, but somehow did not give up hope.

My mother was a saintly figure in those days. Always like a pillar by my side, though not without her own inhibitions, “If you do not make the most of this, we would have lost a lot of money on your MBA, what we have saved for your sister’s wedding.” Even though encouragement was present, but so was the risk, and the pressure on me to perform, to succeed, to make the most of this opportunity was veryheavy. I persevered.

I remember requesting the Interview panel at BIBS Kolkata, during my selection interview, to allow me to present an extempore topic given to me in Bengali, and not in English as I found myself incapable of framing the right sentences to convey exactly what I meant. I remember getting a scornful look that made me realize the sheer height of the mountain I had chosen to climb. At the end of the interview as I rose to leave, not quite sure whether I would be admitted or not, I heard a gentle yet firm voice say, “You have determination, can you pull through for 2 years with this?”, Somehow the semi-encouraging question gave me a new lease of confidence, and I turned around and responded “Yes Sir, I do my best and proud you” (even though hopelessly wrong in grammar, as also spoken with heavily accented English, my answer seemed to impress the panelist).

The interview was over, but my problems were hardly at an end. The question of being able to financially be able to remit all the tuition fees of the institution was still there. My father was still skeptical about being able to come up with the total amount, and he made no secret of the fact that he was more than a little bit short. I spoke to the BIBS counselling team, and they were kind enough to offer assistance in this matter. They told me that they were associated with several financial institutions who would offer me a loan of the amount of tuition fees, to be paid back when I would be drawing a salary from the organization where I would be placed, post the completion of my course at BIBS.

Paperwork, quite a lot of it, followed. As did long queues to hand in the said paperwork, followed by even more paperwork, and rapid fire questions from more panels.

Finally, I was enrolled. And so began my journey.

My journey has led me here, to the eve of my first interview with a large multinational company. My preparation today has not been anything technical. Today, I have not visited the website of the company, or taken notice of any news-worthy mentions. Today, however, I have pressed my suit. Today I have readied a shirt and tie matching the suit. Today I have polished my shoes to a shine. Today I have had a haircut and shave, so that I look extremely presentable in my suave clothes tomorrow.

What I am going to say tomorrow in front of my panel is going to be markedly different from what I said to my interviewers when I was accepted to BIBS. I will not ask for permission to state my feelings in my mother tongue. I am confident in English.

The content of what I say, has been drilled into me with countless sessions with my very capable faculty at BIBS. The subject matter has been taught to me. I have been tested upon it to prove my worthiness.

I will be confident when I walk into the interview room tomorrow. I will know that what I speak has substance, molded in the proper form. I have BIBS to thank for this.

I look up from my musings suddenly, I realize its drizzling. It is past 10 pm and the lane outside my rented accommodation wears a deserted look only to be shaken up by a barking dog chasing the cat or someone returning from a late shift. A good night’s rest is extremely important before a big day like tomorrow.

I shall turn in now.






Six Things To Look For In Your B School

by BIBS Blog

It can be said for sure that a good MBA program is the best way to progress in your career. Enhanced job security, higher positions are sure to come to your platter once you successfully complete a program from a reputed institution. If you are contemplating attending graduate school to get your MBA degree, there are a few important issues which you need to consider before making your decision. Check out the top 10 MBA colleges in Kolkata and then select the one which best suits your requirements. So here are the key factors to look out for.

MBA Program: Know the Courses

Find out if the college has a course suited for you. While some colleges have course suited for freshers, others have courses that are best suited for working professionals. So find out the one which has courses best suited for you. At premier B School Kolkata we have several activities based learning initiatives which help a student to relate with corporate life and learn better. As for example the various presentation or brand building programs like brand wars become an interesting learning tool for would be brand managers.

Earning While Learning

Do you want to keep working while earning your MBA in a part time program or you have enough financial resources are going to give you support to attend the B School for a full time? The answers of these questions will help you select the right B school for you.

In BIBS an interesting part is that students start earning as early as six months of commencement of the course and some of the best companies of India like PepsiCo,  Ernst and Young, Dabur, Coca – Cola, Aditya Birla Group, Perfetti, ESPN recruit them.  Such practical training empower the students with all the necessary skills that are required to better ones career prospects.

The Reputation of the B School

While selecting an institute you need to check out the credibility of the institute. Find out if your MBA institution has a good reputation in the market or a mediocre one. Know about the previous year’s placements and find out if they have efficient as well as renowned faculty – these all points need to be considered thoroughly before your enrolment in a B School. Also the association of B school and the tie ups do matter. For instance there are several tie ups with top corporate which help a student in BIBS to get accustomed to the real world and learn from real leaders. BIBS, the best MBA College in Kolkata has tie-ups with Management Development Institute of Singapore, Reliance Money, Oracle Academy, National Stock Exchange and IIM Ahmedabad’s National Information Centre of Management to provide their utmost support to this institute.

The Specializations Offered

Before selecting an MBA course find out what your interests are – whether you are interested in general MBA or you want to go for a specialized one.  Specialized MBAs offer more advanced study in a particular area of business but make sure it is your area of interest. Also find out if the B school has apt faculty for the specialization.


MBA Colleges in Kolkata generally charge 4 to 5 lakhs on an average for a full time MBA program but the salary you will get after successfully passing out from the B School is generally worth your investment. There are few factors that can affect your salary:


  • Whether you will continue with your current employer after getting an MBA degree or seek for a new job,
  • The amount of relevant experience you have for the job you are seeking,
  • The type of job you are seeking and the level of demand /supply for workers

Study the job market and then evaluate whether the B school will equip you with skills to face the job market. Look if the B school has overseas placement- for example the B school BIBS has placed several of its students overseas and so it is a good bet.

The Final Call

The final wisdom about MBA is whatever you do; do not jump into a program without doing necessary research and introspection. Make a final decision after you have checked all the perspectives.




Brexit And Observation Of Future MBAs

by BIBS Blog


The British citizens opted out from European Union by voting on 23rd June, 2016 and from then on a lot of turmoil is on at both industry and financial market. Enough commentary is being given by experts and not so experts on how Britain will handle the situation, whether they are going to face the music or not. We asked our students their views in this domain…

Student 1 Holistic View

I think that there would be a strong anti British sentiment in the rest of Europe. The financial market will be affected greatly; especially big honchos like Vodafone will face the heat! Companies like them that have an international market but headquartered in Britain are mostly likely to be affected. Again, I feel the country was not ready to face the Brexit- not got enough time was there to prepare beforehand, thus they do not know how to react on it. May be in the long run the international market will be stabilized or at least we can hope so.

Student 2 Optimistic View

According to my point of view, Brexit will have a positive effect on market economy. We, here in BIBS, one of the top MBA Colleges in Kolkata learnt about market research and my knowledge is informing me that there would be an immediate boost up in sales. Rather there will hardly be any impact on the brands of British origins. Yes, there will only be some desultory wind in the Euro market until the market settles down.

Student 3  Future Ambiguous  View

It is not an issue to be looked through with an emotional mind. I do not know about the job market in Britain will be affected or not as the answer can only be got in future.

Student 4 Optimistic View 2

Britain can build up new trade relationships with rest of the world like USA and Commonwealth countries and so it does make sense that our country should maintain a good rapport with them as they are considered as fourth largest market in the world. Now, when the incident or accident has happened already, things can improve only- I am crossing my fingers.

Exposure : The Biggest Necessity Of An MBA Today

by BIBS Blog

With competition and population both on a steep rise in the sub-continent of India, the demand for MBA has not changed from well-educated to well-trained management professionals. Today, just having an MBA degree is not sufficient for you to land a good corporate final placement, you need to have the ability to define the real time scenarios of the management world, something which no Text Book covers, something you need to practically do to understand.

Exposure driven MBA – the new way forward

With exposure being the need of the hour, a mere 3 month Summer Internship does not suffice with the corporate requirements. Companies are today looking for more deep rooted understanding of markets and dynamics of business, even from freshers. It is in this light that programmes like PGPIBM and MBA at BIBS, Kolkata, a premier Business School in Kolkata and ranked amongst the “World’s Greatest Brands – Asia and GCC” process reviewers being PwC, have given the modern day management aspirant a new lease of life w.r.t. getting better Final Placements.

Practical Knowledge Overlaps Theoretical

According Prof. Tarun Kumar Ghosh, a renowned Teacher in many Business Schools across West Bengal, “Students need to come out of their theoretical base and be more focused on their practical orientation. In fact an MBA program is valuable only when they can put their acquired knowledge into practice and use what they are taught in the classroom.

The Industry endorses Exposure over Theory

In the context of the PGPIBM offered by BIBS, Kolkata, the following observation was received from Mr. Debargha Deb, Sr. Joint Manager – HR, Dabur, “It is amazing to see a Business School take the effort of calibrating industry with education. Students of the PGPIBM and MBA Programme will definitely get and edge amongst competition with the work experience.”
