You’re blessed if you own a house in Bengaluru or at least have already rented a decent apartment there. That’s because life isn’t easy for tenants in the silicon valley of India.
You might have studied at India’s prestigious colleges, must be working at Meta or Google, and might even have an impressive family background, but, chances are you can still fail to get a house because you are too lazy to update your LinkedIn profile.
Here’s another mind-boggling tale of a Google employee who failed to pass the tenant interview before finally getting a house to stay at.
Taking to LinkedIn, the man, Ripu Daman Bhadoria, shared that he cleared the Google interview but failed the tenant interview in Bangalore.
“Last year (2022), when I relocated back to #Bangalore from #Seattle, I searched for a decent place to rent, but it was extremely difficult due to the high demand post-COVID. Given the demand, many apartment owners started interviewing prospective tenants. I was caught off guard as I miserably failed my first-ever tenant interview.”
“As I strive to introspect and improve every time I fail, I directly asked the landlord for feedback on my interview performance and if there were any red flags they noticed, since HR/Recruiter wouldn’t reach out to me with interview results in this case. The landlord was transparent in sharing feedback that they believed I was likely to buy a house, given that I work for Google. I never thought that working at Google could be so disadvantageous.”
