What followed was a series of virtual interviews with Srikant wherein he depicts his skillset that has been refined as a counter-terrorist task force agent. However, since he cannot reveal the same just yet, he faces a lot of hassle in going through with the interview when he is asked about the nature of his previous work.
The first interview conducted by Ankur Warikoo, Co-founder of NearBuy went quite smooth until he asked Srikant to stay in touch with HR for a background check on his professional journey so far.
The next interview scheduled with Xiaomi Vice President Manu Kumar Jain, also proved to be very testing since he was asked to create a case study on the work he has done so far. So, although the package being offered to him was far more than the average one, he wasn’t still in a position to accept the offer.
The next virtual interview was conducted by Dunzo’s CEO Kabeer Biswas, wherein owing to wifi issues, Srikant believed that he would be posted at Lonavala instead of Lokhandwala for the position!
The last interview conducted with Oyo’s CEO, Ritesh Aggarwal was not just hilarious but also very intriguing. The interview felt a lot more like a free-flowing conversation with the discussion revolving around work-life balance to even the benefits of yoga!
The interviews are bound to leave you in fits of laughter with a bit of a reality check. This digital marketing campaign has left us all intrigued about not just the brands but has highlighted the Family Man in a very unique manner. We’re all looking forward to finding out where he does land a job ultimately!
