Professionalism etc.

Recently I had been for an interview. I freelance so go for interviews more often than others. It was a new, but fancy place. They took a demo of my work and almost an hour long interview by the Director himself!

It was a great experience to talk about my work, skills, and passion. Yea yea I know it sound cliche, but true nevertheless. At the end my interviewer told me he felt I was fit for an even better assignment than what I had applied for.

I was asked to make a module and mail him in the next couple of days which I did...

You know the amazing part is, even after constant reminders for feedback, I have not yet received one. Its been over a couple of weeks now...

It is funny how in the world of Corporate lifestyle, where Professionalism is supposed to be the walk and talk to the town, professionals act in the most unprofessional manner, experienced stalwarts resemble the meek freshers, and the ones we look up to need a few lessons from us.

Most people our age, the so called young adults put in our blood and flesh in our work. Unfortunately, the not so young adults refuse to acknowledge it.

It is an ironic story that 24 years old newbies have to find 50+ established 'Professionals'-- Unprofessional. And yet that is the story of our Professionals!

On a concluding note, I hope to come across more such people who help me understand the concepts of Professionalism etc.
