I started as a CSR for TataIndicom in Pune worked there for 8 years and I learned a thing about myself that I like to talk to other people. After this I joined Colorama Pharmaceuticals where I learned that not everyone would be around always, one needs to move on, leaving colorama was not easy but soon I started working with AcTax which taught me alot in my life specially, how to work with minimum resources, how to speak good english, how to listen what people say and how to solve their problems, AcTax gave me a international exposure and I felt its time to move on and I joined Sterling Hoffman, here I learned how to recruit people. I loved talking to people who had vast experience and what choices they made in their life and helping them to get the job. With I-Link it was a very short experience but I learned how to log in for long hours :).
