Angry Delayed Joining at work!

Hello All,

I have just completed my MBA in Marketing from the University of Pune.
In November last year (2012), in an open campus placement drive, I got recruited by ICICI Securities for their Mumbai location.
On my offer letter, they've mentioned a joining period from April 2013 - August 2013.

I completed my course in May, now even the results are out and I've passed with First Class with distinction.

Thus far, I haven't received any communication from them, apart from just one email to notify me about a change in the coordinating personnel.

I have called them several times myself and said, I'm getting worried. Is this offer letter valid? When can I expect a call? etc.
Everytime, I get the same response - Don't worry. Since you have an offer letter, we will respect your recruitment and we will intimate you 15 days in advance of your joining. For some reason, we have delayed the on-boarding process, hence the delay.

As a result, since May, I've been sitting at home, doing pretty much nothing. Have been giving interviews elsewhere, but unfortunately, either the Brand names aren't good enough, of the job profile is shitty or the salary is just not upto the mark.

Has this ever happened to you?
What should I do in such a situation?
I don't want to call ICICI people everyday and harass them, lest, they make my employment void. I have been calling them on a rather regular basis and making my worries/presence felt.

However, It is getting really annoying to just wait for that bloody email or phone call.

Should I just NOT be hopeful about them and look elsewhere vehemently? Should I just maybe, settle for a mediocre job elsewhere?
Help. Please.

I think you will do well to keep searching for another job.This thing happens to a lot of people. Find a job to your liking and join it.

I know. I was anyway treating it as a fallback option. Now, I guess I will move on.

Re: Delayed Joining at work!

First of all congratulation on your success.

You should look for some other job but keep pursuing the bank also.

After you get employed, file a complain against the bank under "Deficiency in Service" and ask for the compensation. For that it is necessary that you keep all the records and proof of communication with the bank.

Wish you best of luck

Re: Delayed Joining at work!

Congratulations on the completion of your MBA!

Did anyone else along with you got selected at the campus recruitment with ICICI? Are they also in the same predicament?

If yes, I would start looking for a different job, like you are already doing. Good luck.

P.S: Goldman Sachs in Bangalore I believe is hiring right now.

Arey baba AliBaba. Why dont you focus on the joining period. They have left themselves a room in your offer letter to call you even in August. It is still time. If you dont get a call by 31.Aug.13 then it is a cause for worry.

If I were you, I would take up a job not worrying too much about the employers brand value. What value I'd be adding to my resume is what would have been on the top of my mind. If the employer is not a highly branded one, you can abscond from the job and continue with ICICI as and when they call you. In the worst case if ICICI does not call you at all, you can continue with the non-branded employment and make a switch later.

You want to work for a living and not for glamour, so for now any job should be welcome as long as the pay is not too bad and you dont have to work in places like Antop Hill or Dharavi if you are in Mumbai. You should also be prepared to move out of your comfort zone in Mumbai and work in Begusarai if required.

All the best!

Re: Delayed Joining at work!

Never seen an offer letter with 4 or 5 months joining period. Is this your 1st job?

Do look for another job full-throttle. That wont harm you anyway. That will help you realize your worth too.

Re: Delayed Joining at work!

arre alibaba.. bahut saalo ke baad waapis aaya.. welcome back dude.

I suggest get a job in apparel retail marketing.. within 3-4 years you can be earning 12-15L per annum.. One of my friends did just that.. saala we IT/engineer folks struggle to make 10-12L after 7-8 years of working.

look for a job and start something on the side as soon as you become comfortable.

some institutes are selling fancy degrees like retail management with campus placements in pantaloons and future group..and trust me the salaries are not so attractive.MBAs are like locusts these days unless you are from a highly reputed institute.

yeah those ones may be shady.. but MBA from a decent school and a well rounded personality will still help you make a good career.

no those institutes are reputed.the start salary is awesome.but the growth is very limited.and being MBA in retail management really narrows their stream down.
