ALSTOM T & D India Ltd

Family Background
My dad is retired Executive Engineer from HVPNL. (Haryana Power Utlility).
Mother: a House wife.
I have 1 younger brother and a younger sister.
Presently staying in my hometown Kurukshetra, Haryana
My achievement
I was a avg student during whole of my student life, after completing my graduation in 2009, it was a period of market recession and getting job was a toughest thing to achieve.
I stared my carrier with a salary amount of Rs. 5000/- with a EPC company near my hometown with no training facility.
and now after nearly 4 years of work experiance, iam prevliged to work for a leading MNC in power sector
Challenges faced in job
As a electrical engineer, specially when you r in project field, its very obvious that u can't be choosers in term of getting the type of projects 881984 location you got to work.
Every one tries to get the best possible market exposure with regular carrier development. My personal view is that to judge your success one should look for three "P" in life, i.e Paisa, Place 881984 Position. The biggest challenge in project execution is to maintain your market position.
Making job easier
Working with a french MNC, with over 100 years of work experience world over including India. So, it offers me an excellent platform to learn,develop 881984 explore and enhance my skills.
With world class organizational behavior 881984 working culture you find yourself in least stress at work and give your 100% every time.
Managing professional as well as personal life
I recently talked about work culture, that is only thing which makes it easier to manage personal & professional life better.
My important career decision
I think its important to be in touch of books always, so i started perusing distance PG program in Operation management.
2ndly, joining ALSTOM in 2011 was my biggest turnover decisions after my graduation. This gave a platform where in exploring to up most
Being different
Well i think Engineer after B.E is simply like new born bird which has feathers but need to believe on this strength to able to fly.
Engineer always loves to take calculated risk in their profession which make them different.
I have enjoyed taking these risks in life and resulted in fruitful returns.
My advice
The only mantra of success which i experienced is believing in your karma, as a fresher we have a dream to join big organizations 881984 getting highest packages, but every one of us to get the very 1st time may not be possible.
Don't ever compare your job with salary, today market situation is not the same as it was 10 year back.
For minimum 1st 2 years of your professional life dont see salary, just have focus on the knowledge you can grasp from your organization and after 2 years start delivering it to market, and you will surely get the desired three "P".
Goals and Ambitions
I am looking forward for working on large national projects, like NTPC, PGCIL, DMRC and also trying to explore international projects
