IT industry downfall….hammers on my head this time

Dear Abhinav Sahai,

This is further to your Offer of Appointment with iGATE Global Solutions.  We are glad to share your date of joining at iGATE.  Please note that you are required to join us on 14th May ’09 at our Bangalore office.  Please find below the address of our office along with relevant details for your joining.  Please carry a copy of this email on the day of joining.

This gift is received when I logged into my gmail inbox a few minutes ago.  All I could say was WOOOOOW….huh. The industry is headed for a downfall but I thought that they might delay it by six months, well I ended up with my final semester exams on 17th of May’08. And now wait till 14th May 09.

Well this is just a confirmation of the fact that the companies are just respecting their offer letters and nothing else. Everyone knows that by giving such a delayed (with an extra d) joining date, the person would automatically look for other options. Well now I can call myself very smart as I was already on the hunt for another job. May I succeed quickly. Amen.

An advice to all those graduating this year, start hunting for other options as this might,though should not, but maybe, happen to you as well.

Saw this at the footer of the mail apart from the text in between, only for those who might be thinking that the company which recruited me might be poor.

iGATE is Ranked No. 3 in DQ

-IDC best IT employer survey and Ranked No.6
