last year, when we had a requirement for a php/mysql programmer, i recalled that i knew Sachin, placement incharge at NIIT Chembur center.. little did i realise that NIIT Chembur center was no more an NIIT center..
Me: ***dials 2528xxxx Receptionist: Hello KarROX technologies. How may i help you? Me: hello.. i thought i'd called up NIIT Me: Sorry wrong number
hmm, may be they leased out the room to KarROX, as NIIT affiliation was not getting any money.. then again last week another friend asked for a trainee, and i thought let's callup KarROX.
Me: ***dials 2528xxxx Receptionist: Hello IIHT. Me: hello.. KarROX? Receptionist: Sorry sir, KarROX is no longer here. Me: ok, thank you so much
