Jaipuria Jaipur taught me to perform to the best of my abilities and not worry about the results
Amit Mathur works at the Jaipur branch of the Indian Overseas Bank as an Assistant Manager in the Marketing department. The big advantage for him is that he is able to play a central role as a part of the alumni body of Jaipuria Jaipur, something he is happy to do, as he has retained a strong sense of community from Jaipuria Jaipur.
“After passing out of Jaipuria Jaipur in 2011, my first company did not give me the exact profile which had been agreed upon. In my time of despair, faculty members like Professor Bhargava and my colleagues from Jaipuria Jaipur helped me take the decision to resign from that Company and accept the offer from IOB. They reminded me of numerous projects like the NRHM-UNICEF project at Sawai Madhopur, RUIDP project at Jaisalmer, KGK and RSRTC, where I had performed exceptionally; and how I was given a standing ovation from the Director and Board Members of KIIPL (KGK) for my project. Jaipuria Jaipur put me back on my feet.”
Amit feels that learning is a continuous process, and Jaipuria Jaipur has taught him to perform his best and not think of the result. He enjoyed every second that he spent on Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur campus.Read more
