important career decision
Graduating from Bishop Cottons, my career began as soon as I accepted my first opportunity  at Honeywell as a Finance Analyst. I then decided I wanted to focus more on the consumer space where I could make a bigger impact with my skill set. I was willing to step away from a high compensation position to achieve this. Genpact(IRI) was the place where I made the transition from the role of a Finance Analyst to a Research Analyst. This company provided me a stable & happy work environment, it has a reputation & an environment which encouraged my best work delving in Consumer oriented research. This industry was a perfect fit  to my interests and I made all progressive decisions for my career within the company. I handled Training, Projects and People from a leadership standpoint. Before I knew it, I had spent 5 1/2 years in the company and became a certified Six Sigma, Lean Sigma and Train the trainee professional. I'm currently in the process of adding PMP credential to my cap.My career reflects for people to see how a person’s  experiences and qualifications match with what they need.
Profession of today
When I started my career I was too quick to jump at an opportunity. It is very important to understand what your interests really are and identify opportunities that are inclined to improve your chances of success (albeit the risk).Today I realize with all the competition and technology trend a career doesn't always move in a consistently upward trajectory. If you want to advance in your career & have a permanent role that allows you to grow as a person and employee you need to have relevant skill set. Especially in today's environment, where in a career can often move horizontally or even in circles you need to keep up with the trend and technology. Sometimes, the best long-term decision may require what seems, to be a backward move. Today we always need to look at career decisions within the context of a 10-year implication.
I had to relocate after marriage to UAE  and start my career over at an ELV company, an exciting challenge and puzzle to figure out. Being able to make a big difference is the most exciting part currently. I believe that this new position and opportunity would move me closer to my ultimate career goal.
