Hi guys, I had my technical round with TCS yesterday. It went on for 45 mins and I had answered close to 17 of the 20 questions that were asked to me. The interviewer also gave a positive kind of response stating that you will have a managerial round after this and then HR. But nothing has happened after that. I tried emailing the HR who had arranged for my interview but I did not receive a response. Any idea about the TCS hiring process or how else can I reach them to kno the results ?

Why do ppl advise against including a job on your resume if you were only there 6mos or less?

Why does the employee have to take the hit b/c an employer lied during the interview process. Or it just ended up not being a great fit. Doesn’t make the employee a flake. Am I missing something?
