Selection Process for TAS In-house and Campus Selection Process

  1. Chairman’s Round
  2. Case Study Presentation
  3. IRIS psychometrics
  4. Director's round of interviews

Round 1 - Chairman's Group Discussion
In this round group of 10 people, one person is chairman and he/she will be given a case/problem statement (about 5 lines), then he/she have 1 min to read it. You aren't allowed to make notes. Then he/she has to present the case to the rest of the group (the group doesn't get to read the case) - 8 minutes of discussion where it is the chairperson's authority on how to control the group discussion. 1 min to conclude, panel will inform you that you have 1 min remaining to conclude. The chairperson usually concludes. And this process is repeated for the whole group i.e. each participant will become the chairperson and present a different case to the group followed by 9 mins of discussion. By the end the group would have discussed 10 cases for 100 mins.
Having energy for 100 mins is very important and presenting the correct interpretation of the case to the group is also very important. Topics will be usually business scenarios.
This is an elimination round.

Round 2 - Case Study Presentation
All who get through after the profile form short listing will be given case study and a presentation format. The case study has to be analyzed and presented in round 2.
Only the people who get through the GD round will be asked to make the presentation but all have to prepare.
The whole thing is supposed to last for 30 minutes with 20 minutes for your presentation and 10 mins for Q&A. This is also an elimination round.
Round 1 and Round 2 will happen on the same day.

Round 3 - IRIS - Psychometric Interview
This round is non-elimination; this basically tries to measure and quantify the leadership potential and is used in the next round of evaluation i.e. the Director's round.

Round 4 - Director's Interview
Here a panel of Tata Group companies' MDs and CXOs will take your interview, there is nothing specific about the interview. It varies from person to person depending on what the panel wants to evaluate.


Inputs that the panel has

1. The profile form and appraisals
2. The comments from GD panel
3. The comments from the case study panel
4. The IRIS feedback. This round is supposed to take place around 24/25 April and results will be out on the last day.
5. Joining TAS.
