My offer from infosys

Dear Praveen,

Congratulations on coming out a winner in our Campus selection process.

Securing a position at Infosys is more competitive than gaining admission to Harvard. Last year the company had more than 1.3 million applicants for full-time positions and hired only 1 percent of them (Harvard College, by comparison, accepted 9 percent of applicants) – Fortune magazine, March 2006 edition.

This comparison goes to show your tremendous achievement at such a young age. It is truly a reflection of your intellect and passion for excellence, to have made it through our selection process. We are pleased that you chose us to kick start your career. At Infosys, we strongly believe that people are our biggest assets and you are one amongst the best-in-class global talent which we take great pride in.

We at Infosys are referred to as ‘Infoscions', originating from the word ‘SCION' meaning – a family member or a descendant. Cool and capable in the most demanding situations, an Infoscion is known for caliber, competence and loves challenges. Finding innovative solutions is our way of life, characterized by an abiding loyalty to the company’s value system.

As this wonderful journey commences, a world of commitment, ethics, global diversity, teamwork and much more awaits you. We have drawn on the best of talent from campuses across India and aim to prepare you to take on the challenges of the industry. We will ensure that you have a smooth transition from campus to the corporate world that holds great promises and is full of opportunities.

We will keep this connect going and update you frequently with the latest information from our end. In case any of your friends to whom we have extended a campus offer have not been a recipient of this mail, kindly send us their mail IDs, along with their name and date of birth at:

Reading these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is ever-permeating in this day and age, and I am fairly certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory drops, the possibility of uploading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could encounter in my lifetime.
