Sri Ram Reventh Kumar is living his long-term career goal and working as a corporate sales professional with Naukri.com, India. And this has been possible because of Vignana Jyothi Institute of Management (VJIM), Hyderabad, in his opinion. As someone who’s responsible for managing clients directly, engaging with them, and offering solutions from time to time, the need for honing certain skills like communication, decision-making, and technical was not just a necessity but something without which he wouldn’t have been able to lay a foundation of his career.
This journey from knowing little to possibly a lot more has been made possible by VJIM, in Kumar’s view. He shares that the feeling of being at the VJIM campus has, in itself, been a huge driver for him to acknowledge the educational privilege he has received. Since having begun his journey to pursuing PGDM in Hyderabad to now securing a job at one of the country’s largest organizations, Kumar has taken a step forward each day and tried new things, for which, he thanks his peers and faculty members who pushed him.
“The due credit for whatever I have attained so far goes to VJIM since the whole institute challenged me to get out of my comfort zone, face experiences, and learn new things. The pattern of the course has been designed in a way that each student gets the exposure to the right resources needed to succeed, progress, and grow. I firmly feel, the presentations, assignments, events, seminars, and guest lectures have all contributed to our transformed professional outlook. VJIM is not just giving great education but also preparing and refining leaders of tomorrow,” adds Kumar.
Kumar, who previously worked in the aviation industry, had no deep know-how of the marketing world. However, his internship at T-Hub, Hyderabad, as a branding and marketing professional, coupled with classroom guidance, helped him set his foot in this industry well enough. Kumar adds that there’s never a dull moment at work since he’s surrounded by subordinates, managers, and leaders who are not only ambitious and driven but very helpful and cordial.
When speaking on what advice he would give to the aspiring students, Kumar said, “Attend as many classes as possible. Take part in all the socio-cultural events taking place within and outside of the institute. That will give you exposure and make you bold as well as adaptable. And, the best thing to do is seek guidance and mentorship from the professors and visiting faculty members – they’re the finest in their areas of work.” Lastly, Kumar emphasizes that the experiences from the class, learnings from the pioneers, and moments spent at the campus & in the institute are like no other, and for that, one must enroll in a professional course like PGDM at an institute like VJIM.
