I am currently working with Hyundai MOBIS (Hyundai Motors Group) as a Management Trainee (Marketing) – Parts Division. My job description basically consists of handling all the communications and preparing them from time to time. This includes preparing all Report Approvals, Internal Communications, Circulars, the Quarterly Newsletter, etc. I also handle the installation and follow-up for display stands, display kit dispatches, the leaflet dispatch every quarter, design and photo shoots related to those leaflets, conducting surveys every quarter on challenging topics and the vendor selection for the designing of the newsletter & leaflets. Finally, data extraction from our AMOS and DPOS software also falls to me.. Even though it sounds like a lot, this is just a brief outline of my job profile.
The placement process for this company was obviously quite rigorous and consisted of 9 rounds. The first round was a technical interview and questions were asked from the spheres of marketing, strategic marketing, the automobile industry and about the recently held auto expo. The second round was another technical round conducted by another marketing head of the company. The third was an HR round in which questions were asked in order to judge my ability to fit into the company’s culture. Then there were a string of technical rounds with other department heads and a final HR confirmation round through a video conference with the GM (HR) of the Chennai office.
With so many rounds and so much pressure, no wonder that I needed support and guidance. In that, the faculty at Jaipuria Noida came through for me and were very supportive throughout the placement month. They gave us interview questions and guided us by arranging crucial mock placement sessions whenever a company visit was due.
The 2 years in Jaipuria Noida have been a joy ride with all the backing that I’ve got from the faculty and placement coordinators. I have learnt and grown a lot, both professionally and personally, in these years. The whole experience was intense and will certainly helped me a lot in my professional life.
