Life @ Cognizant

After first day in C V Raman nagar we were told to report at Airport road office the next working day for training. The training lasted for more than two months. At the beginning of the training I had no clue it would have a beautiful ending. I always thought training would be very boring. The basic idea behind the training and the work after that had created few doubts in my mind. But whatever it was, at the end of two months it was like a time bound journey which will stay in the memory for years from now.

Initial days were spent thinking when the training gets over and we will start working. But as the days passed it was not the same. At times I have felt why don’t this continue for two more months. It was all fun to be in that training. I had a nice time listening to the trainer! Most of the times it was not true. Best part is the outlook chat! As there were no chat engines(web sense) outlook played a major role. Entire day the screen would not stay without outlook. Also the games we used to get from other batch mates. The days passed too fast than expected. I can not forget the days we played basket ball and cricket. My college was located in J C road, can imagine in that busy area there was no playground. It was like I had not played for years. To compensate that we almost played everyday unless we had a strict trainer who would not leave till the minute. Not to forget the tests. Fudge, share, copy everything was allowed till we were caught!!!

Life at academy had one more best part I can always remember. The bus journey. I can continue writing for pages about the bus journey. Dc being the best part.

      They do ask before whether you are ok to travel to different locations. Contact the HR, they are friendly and will help you with the concerns.
      The posting depends on the project availability and allocation. Its not mandatory that you will be posted where you get training.
