Anish Wadhwa Wins The Silver Medal In Convocation 2013 Of KIAMS
"Sometimes I actually go and touch my medal and read the name on the certificate to reconfirm that it was actually I who was amongst the toppers of my batch in KIAMS" Says Anish Wadhwa.
Pune (I-Newswire) May 3, 2013 - Sometimes your entire life boils down to just one moment. For Anish Wadhwa, that moment came during her convocation ceremony, when it was announced that she had bagged the Silver medal. Anish confesses that this was a bolt from the blue for her - despite the fact that all her course mates were pretty much certain that she'd bag it.
"KIAMS has given me many unexpected memories. The honour of being a topper in the batch, a good placement in the first company on campus, that too on my birthday; all these things were totally unexpected when I came to KIAMS. Sometimes all this feels like a dream and I actually go and touch my medal again and read the name on the certificate to reconfirm that it was actually I who was honoured with the silver medal."
Anish was the second person placed in her batch at KIAMS, with an annual package of Rs. 5 Lakh. The US multi-national, Odessa Technologies, has its own set practices that required its India office in Bangalore to recruit much ahead of the usual recruiting season. They were looking for business graduates in Finance from the country's top business schools to work on software solutions for Finance companies; KIAMS was a natural choice for Odessa Technologies. There hardly seemed to be any time to prepare, but the beauty of the routine and academic rigour at KIAMS is that its students can appear for interviews without elaborate preparations.
"I had six rounds to clear. The first round was a group discussion, followed by a psychometric test, then a visual round and then three rounds of interviews. Four rounds took place on the campus itself, while the last two interviews took place in the Odessa office at Bangalore," recollects Anish. The first interview at the Odessa office was with the Managing Director of the company, while the Head of Human Resources took the second. Her recruitment was confirmed way back in August 2012 itself. An Economics graduate from Khalsa College, Delhi University, Anish believes that the foundation to a sound personality was laid in school, the structure built in college, and finally polished for entry into the corporate world at KIAMS.
"KIAMS has not just nurtured me for a managerial role, but also helped me understand the nuances of life. How to take care of oneself in difficult times, how to help others and how to work as a team player are a few of the things which can be taught best only the KIAMS way."
Her profile at Odessa Technologies will be that of a Functional Analyst dealing mainly with clients and their business processes. The job involves updating the software as per the client's requirements, and hand holding the client in understand how the software works. She is positive that the zeal to excel will propel her to put great effort into her job.
