Avoy Nayak from West Bengal chose to specialise in finance for his PGDM. He is now placed with the ICICI bank as a Privilege Banker. Vignana Jyothi Institute of Management, Hyderabad was what prepared him for a long career that now he has his foot down on.
Before joining VJIM for a Post Graduate Diploma in Management, Avoy describes himself as an above average student who had his entire education from West Bengal. Because of which, he thought of staying away from home and chose the city of Nawabs.
After a Group Discussion, he was shortlisted for a written test. The shortlisted students of the written test appeared for the first round of interview after which he was picked. ICICI Bank recruiters were testing Avoy’s knowledge on finance as well as marketing. They were looking at how good he would be at his job by asking situation-based questions at the interview.
The moment he knew, he called his parents to tell them about the beginning of his professional career that was made possible by VJIM’s dedicated efforts and his hard work.
Before joining VJIM, Avoy struggled with being in front of an audience. Now he can boldly speak in public, that too effectively. Avoy wasn’t very confident about his English vocabulary before he joined VJIM but with the faculty’s help, he grew into an effective communicator.
Avoy wants to be a team player and give his best at the workplace. He wants to not do anything that had the possibility of snagging or harming anyone around his workplace. Having done his Summer Internship Project (SIP) from Karvy Stock Broking Ltd. and submitting the final project on Equity Research, he feels ready for the upcoming corporate sojourn. It was a great learning experience. He was surrounded with experienced professionals who gave him invaluable advice. No doubt, every bit of it came handy during the final placement season at VJIM, Hyderabad.
When asked about just what he will miss most about VJIM, pat came Avoy’s reply- “every day at VJIM was close to my heart. I will sure miss the first taste of freedom he felt when he had stepped out of West Bengal and home.” He adds that Chrysalis, VJIM’s annual Management fest left a lasting mark on him and his stay.
To his juniors, who might potentially be appearing for the same position, he says that focus, revision, and a good SIP will do wonders. Added focus on communication and body language, speaking in measured terms will help you in the long term. Know that you can control and decide what opinion you’d want your future employers will reserve towards you.
