After a brilliant weekend (weather-wise) where many of us ventured off campus to visit family or to go on holiday, this morning dawned rainy and grey. It’s a sign that autumn is officially here to stay, I guess. Over the past few weeks, sandals, summer skirts and sleeveless tops have been intermittently but steadily giving way to fleece jackets in my wardrobe. So with October almost here, it shouldn’t be a surprise that daylight hours are getting shorter, the time window to enjoy the picturesque scenery of Europe is getting narrower, and winter (and with it, graduation) is getting nearer.
With the hectic schedule of on-campus recruiting followed by equally rushed forays out for the weekend, not to mention that our Innovation and Negotiations assignments had to be squeezed somewhere in between, it is probably no wonder that many of us felt somewhat sluggish trudging into class on a wet Monday morning. Today, we covered structured problem solving and over the week, we will be having classes on Change and Execution and Managing the Environment, all to set the stage for our ICP 2 which will be starting next week.
It’s time to start getting serious about ICP 2, but at the same time we will be hearing from several key companies that are recruiting on campus on their decisions for second round interviews within this week and next week. Lots of suspense and also lots of work await us. Exams and most of the first-round interviews might be over, but the activity never ends around here…
