“Do what you love and love what you do”. This phrase motivates a lot of people but very few can follow it. Our student of the fortnight, Nikhil George, belongs to that group of people who actually seize the initiative and follow their hearts. Indeed, it was Nikhil’s determination to turn his passion into his career. It can be said that he sketched his own career graph and gave it the direction that he wanted.
Nikhil talks about his strategic approach to land a dream job, and how he carefully planned his every move to formulate his success story.
It is true that there’s a lot we can learn from Nikhil and apply it to our own pursuit of success. Let’s find out a bit more about him, and his success mantras.
An action plan for success
Nikhil’s resume describes him as a proactive and fast learning individual who loves to code. He said, “I was always passionate about software engineering and wanted to know the secret behind the rapid growth of the Indian IT sector. That is why I chose my career in IT.”
Nikhil also said that his first step towards realizing his goal was to learn the necessary skills needed to secure a job. He planned to sign up for a short classroom training program that would help him learn the most in-demand IT skills and at the same time enhance his employability.
The winning move
Sticking to his plan of action, Nikhil began his search for the right course and came across Manipal ProLearn’s School for Jobs on Fourth Ambit, an online community site. Nikhil shared, “I heard that Manipal ProLearn was conducting a program along with QuEST Global that would help students get placed after the completion of the necessary training. I applied and cleared the interviews conducted by Manipal ProLearn and QuEST Global.” It turned out to be a winning move for him.
Training for the job
Nikhil wanted an institute that could mould his coding knowledge into a domain specific skillset that he can use for career growth. The industry specific intensive training and mentoring by industry experts at Manipal ProLearn’s School for Jobs helped Nikhil gain industry relevant skillsets. He happily confirmed, “I expected to learn programming skills and Manipal ProLearn helped me in achieving it.”
A strong finish
As a finishing school, Manipal ProLear’sn School for Jobs offers 100% assured jobs to its students. Nikhil had bagged himself an offer from QuEST Global before joining Manipal ProLearn. During the course, there were interviews conducted by Manipal faculties and enough training was provided for that, Nikhil mentioned.
