I work in outsourcing industry and discuss the things with my onshore counterparts.So I would like to share which I have learnt in my professional life is that communication is very important.If you want to be a part of outsourcing industry,two things are required-Good communication Skills and Analytical Skills.In the absence of these, it is very difficult to survive in this industry.
My role model
I have two motivators one is Mahatma Gandhi and the second one is Sir Syed Ahmad khan.
Mahatma Gandhi is one of the greatest men in the history of India. He sacrificed his own life for the sake of country. His lifestyle is much appreciable. He played a pivotal role for the freedom of India. His non violent ways and peaceful methods were the foundation for gaining independence from the British.
Sir syed ahmad khan who decided to uplift his community and embarked upon a mission of regeneration and rejuvenation of suppressed Muslims. He believed that only Western education can empower them. Hence, he took up the task of setting an institution for the purpose. M.A.O. College was established in 1877 at Aligarh which later on became renowned Aligarh Muslim University.
Important decision
The most important decision that I have taken is to switch from science background to art.I am happy that I am doing well in the organization which I learned while pursuing B.A.(Hons) and MFC.
Ensuring success
Learn new things to improve yourself according to the requirement of time.
