So today I walked into the client site and realized I left my laptop at home. Mind you my commute is around 60min one way. Let's just say, I've been contemplating on life since 8:45AM.

Hi, I'm currently with TCS. I have given technical interview with Infosys on 9th October and the very next day I got a mail to send documents. Since then I didn't receive any reply from them. How long does the process really take for one to get a call for HR discussion. It's been almost 10 days now. Similar situation happened with Accenture recently, they put me on hold for long and suddenly turned down the offer after HR discussion for which I'm really concerned now.
