The placement experience is unparalleled – not just because of the exposure students get, but because there’s a new job waiting for the right candidate, shares Bantu Akhil Chandra of Vignana Jyothi Institute of Management (VJIM), Hyderabad.
For Chandra, the two years of PGDM at VJIM passed in the blink of an eye. As someone with great enthusiasm and positive outlook to learning and adapting new skills, Chandra believes the mix of workshops, assignments, presentations, events, and importantly, summer internship, has helped not just him but every other student in developing knowledge and competence that has now come to use as they all step into the corporate world. Having gained his summer internship experience as a brand promoter at Marico, the young lad of VJIM asserts that the support and guidance from his professors, placement cell, and subordinates at the company helped him sail smoothly through those two months.

I knew I had a responsibility on my shoulder to perform well, and so, I could surpass my own abilities to do justice to the role offered. What worked well in my favor is the know-how of implementing what I knew, what I’d learned, and how to apply,” said Chandra.
Now, as an employee at ITC Logistics as a Trainer, Chandra feels great to have been placed in one of the best companies that the Institute can offer. Besides, being the only one to have secured a position in the said organization, he shares feeling extremely proud of his own achievement and hard work put in during the time of the course, and prior to the interview. When speaking on his profile, Chandra said, “As a Logistics Trainer, I’m expected to be present in the warehouse regularly for about 10 to 12 hours, observing and monitoring the process. I’m needed to keep a close eye on tracking during work hours. For now, since joining, I’m being trained, guided, and mentored by many, which has helped me advance a few skills in a short span. Needless to say, whatever I am, however, I perform, it’s got a lot to do with VJIM and the faculty members.”
Chandra now hopes to attain, develop, and polish his knowledge pertaining to his function and create invaluable professional as well as social networks, for good!
