When to apply for big / mega corporate?
If you are a fresher then definitely you have to apply for small companies / consultancies first. get a good experience in attending interview. if you feel you are comfortable and you could face any kind of interview panel then start applying for mega corporates.
You may be thinking … why not? …. the answer is if you started applying for mega corporates like TCS, CTS, … etc … once your resume is shortlisted for an interview and if you failed to clear the inter view … for the coming 6 months you won’t be able to attend for an inter view again. (this is not an accurate data I am giving it as an example, this duration differs from company to company)
And one more thing … if you are attending an interview again in a same company … they will definitely have your past history .. its a bit tough to clear because they knew you weak areas in your area of specialization.
that is why it is always advisable to attend mega corporate interviews after a through preparation.
