To a fresher, I recommend this job when he/she is ready to be a student for at least a year more. Initially he got to learn a lot before exploring. And we do not get this environment in our colleges.
Lust to have things practically implemented with logical reasons makes me different from others. Every day-to-day activity requires automation which only engineers can provide.
My role model
My friend’s mother. She was an uneducated lady from a village. Got married at an early stage to an army man. By the time she realizes life, she lost her husband in the Sri Lankan battle. She was left with 18month old son and 5 month old daughter. The amazing way she bought up her children, the way she managed her finances has always inspired me. I like every woman who are like that.
Challenges faced in job
It helps me face new technical issues that arose. Challenge is to resolve the same at the earliest. There is hardly anything we do at physical issues but then when there are routing issue or protocol issues then it comes up as an unsolved puzzle which is to be attended. Apart from exposing me with new things each time it also enables me not to rust by brain by doing the same routine work.
Huge demand of the available products leased line, MPLS connections, VOIP services, InstaCC, Blackberry services, tele-presence has lead to a new service wherein we are trying to merge data, voice and video traffic and supply it to customer as one product.

Making job easier
The technical skills and confidence along with peaceful work environment at each point of time. Unlike other places, I also know that if Im pointed out for doing anything wrong, I would also be applauded and rewarded for good work.
My strongest Skill
Understand from customer the exact issue. Give him solution accordingly. Convince him with the time being taken during fixing the issues.
In case of physical issues where I need to check with other ISPs try and urge for early restorations.
Goals and Ambitions
I wish to get into project management dealing with both telecom and IT projects.

Views about 'Tech product Introduction is weak among Indians'
I got to use a borrowed line to answer this. “Each of us is very good planner but a bad implementer”. Moreover our own mindset has become such that we believe in all other people than our ownselves as simple as we prefer imported fabric to Indian fabric.
