Hi Fishes, I got a call from a TCS manager last week and he interviewed me saying he received my CV from an external source. He shared his tcs email id, asked me to make minor modifications in the CV and then there will be a client interview. He said he will get back to me.

I’ve had a very interesting experience with my manager as a new hire out of college. I’m all for constructive criticism, but feel like this is really destructive criticism with no aims of helping. One month within being hired, she told me that because I was so slow on picking up things, that she will have to work through her vacation to get things done on time. She constantly rejects my spreadsheets for things such as my font being Times New Roman 12 instead of 10, cont..
