How does it feel getting placed at Deloitte?

It is like ‘dream come true’. I always wanted to be a part of Big four especially Deloitte. So, I feel very happy to get a chance to be able to work in Deloitte through campus placement. Being an absolute beginner to getting placed is a very gratifying feeling. 

Your Success Mantra

I would say Diligence, Confidence and Positive attitude are the things that helped me crack the interview rounds.  Along with it, a thorough research about the company and its industry, keeping basics strong, practicing the sample papers for the interview rounds are some of the factors that helped me throughout. The Career Management Cell at FIIB also prepared us thoroughly  for the placement process . This further helped me in getting my dream job.                                                                                                                                                  

You are on the verge of stepping into the Corporate World. How did the 2-year journey at FIIB help you succeed in the interview and prepare you for the Corporate World?

At FIIB, the entire 2-year program is formulated in such a way that it grooms the students from day one through group projects,live projects, individual presentations etc. and gives an exposure to the corporate world through industry visits, guest lectures, conclaves, internships etc.

Your personal and professional attributes that helped you excel?

I think what worked for me was working in teams, taking responsibility, being confident and proactive.

Is there any moment at FIIB that has been etched in your memory forever?

Truly speaking every day at FIIB is full of learning and fun. So, for me every single day at FIIB is memorable. Also, being class representative in term – I and term-IV, being awarded with RK Shrivastava Scholarship, Dubai business tour are some of the moments that gave me a new experience and confidence.
