“A lot of things contributed in my bagging the offer,” explains Yashika when asked- what she thinks helped her primarily in convincing the Mahindra Finance interviewers that she is the appropriate fit for the task! “My Summer internship project saw me through. I completed my SIP from HDB Financial Services Ltd., Jaipur. The project was about the evaluation of factors which impact rejection of loan application in PL Salaried class. Through and through, my employers went on asking me questions around it. And I knew what I was talking about,” said Yashika with a smile.
She owes a lot to her mother. “I am the first one in my entire family to go for service. And had it not been for my mother’s encouragement, it would all have been half-traversed,” mentions Yashika. She came to Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur with four primary objectives-
