Break Down Your Goals To Small Action Items

Why did you choose a career in HR? Describe your journey.

“My first week at FIIB had been tough and I had no idea how to interact with everyone. I was shy and introverted and at FIIB, you had to be proactive and participative. The best part is that if FIIB demands you to be proactive, it certainly gives you the means as well. During my orientation, I met another classmate who was an extrovert (who is now my fianceé!) with whom I was able to get over my hesitation to participate, once I identified my strengths, there was no looking back. I realized I was actually good at people skills. As I started interacting and immersing myself in various opportunities I became more confident in my skills. After my first term at FIIB, I was already in the top 10 in studies, and in the running for RK Shrivastava allrounder medal which I eventually won by the end of two years at FIIB. By choosing a specialization and in due course a career that challenges me, I grew both personally and professionally. 


What were your expectations from your career, did they differ from reality?

“During my MBA, I helped organize the annual HR conclave. With the guidance of Dr. Vidya Iyer, I helped identify the right speakers and invite them for the event. This networking opportunity helped me get a glimpse of the industry and how to make the right connections. It gave me a clearer idea of how HR is, what are the current trends, what do I need to learn to see myself growing in the domain. I’ve got selected in Udaan India through campus placements, my zeal to learn and networking skills helped to ascend the corporate ladder easily. Now I work as a Business strategist at Udaan and I play a crucial role in strategic HRM.”

“…FIIB gave me multiple opportunities to grow and succeed while its people are the reason I call it my second home”

What fond memories did your visit to FIIB awaken?

“Apart from all that I’ve gained in my career, I’ve also found another most important connection at FIIB – my life partner. I’ve come back with her to relive the times I’ve spent here, the times I was scared of public speaking and presentations to the times I’ve spent hours in the library to improve my skills, to the one proud moment of winning RK Shrivastava all-rounder medal. It’s a beautiful journey. FIIB gave me multiple opportunities to grow and succeed while its people are the reason I call it my second home. They are the reason, I have discovered myself and have countless happy memories to look back”

“FIIB will throw challenges at you, be willing and bold enough to accept and make the most of them!”

What advice would you offer to students who take #NoHypeMBA at FIIB?

“Be focused on Curriculum. Ready to do whatever the work has been assigned to you. Focus on end-term goals, and break them into small action items. That worked for me. Understand the industry expectations, if you want to climb the ladder. FIIB will throw challenges at you, be willing and bold enough to accept and make the most of them! Remember, the future you build is today in your hands.
