Is it true?? I know the policy doesn't allow us to mention company names here; but if this is a valid information I believe such companies must be exposed. I hope moderators understand and common sense will prevail here.


This is as astonishing as it gets. In fact [Company] is one of the [removed] group of companies and since it gets some great revenues from domestic market, it is one the few companies which is not affected much by current recession. It would be shame if they really ask candidates to pay for appearing for the test.

To the OP : can you confirm this news? Also, it is not only about certification, keep upgrading your skills and see if you can get some contract work for a month or two. Keep taking even small assignments and you'd learn a lot in the process. Something nice would come up for you soon. All the best!

Companies now a days are going far below ethical standards. In one of the post Debashish mentioned that HR consutant companies are ditched by companies. I agree with him. I have similar experience. Can not name the company here because of two reasons, one is JR policy does not allow it and second is who knows I may have to work in that company is future. But these companies are completely fooling HR consultants which I think is not ethical. HR consultants are small companies. Does not matter if they do not understand requirement or technical terms. But it is not ethical to ditch them by big companies. That is my opinion.

Manish [Sir, If DOJ of JR is considered], Just Google [Company] Freshers Recruitment Test and you will find plenty of links explaining the details of recruitment process, they asked Rs 1,500 DD last year [I mistakenly wrote Rs 200, its for another company]. When I was fresher and got a 2/3 mails for this recruitment process, I just wondered why they ask such big amount from fresher. The exam fee is nearly half the what I bought from home every month.

One such link for [Company] Freshers Recruitment Test

It is a tough market out there and you can try a number of things

-- Keep applying. Make it a point to devote some time for sending applications.

-- Find ways to enahnce your current technical skills. Reseach what the potential employers are looking for and then gain hands on experience through volunteer work, self-taght projects, open-source contribution, etc.

-- Improve your networking skills, job hunting skills, communication and presentation skills, resume and interviewing skills, etc.

I have more tips on my website.

For my first job in 1992 after graduation I was also unemployed for a year or so and sent 200 application letters. I am still alive. So being unemployed for a year in a bad market is still no disaster. Does that cheer you up a little?? What to do? Well, keep on studying and doing any job. It will pass.
