Amit Khandelwal was placed as a Relationship Manager with Goo2o on passing out of Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur. Goo2o is one of the fastest emerging IT Companies headquartered in the millennium city of Gurgaon. Amit worked for just three months at Goo2o, but it is a testimony to the exceptional grooming at Jaipuria Institute of Mangement, Jaipur, that in these three months he was recognised as the Most Promising Newcomer.
“Goo2o was my entry into the professional world and I thank Jaipuria Institute of Management for placing me with a company that gave me immense knowledge. I have no doubt that it was a successful start to my career. It worked well for me especially because of the sales profile, which I always wanted. You see, Jaipuria Jaipur equips you with the techniques, drive and necessary soft-skills for a salesman. It is on this basis that, within the first month, I was able to achieve the highest sales figures at Goo2o, thereby earning the award.”
In August 2012, Amit made an early shift in his career, moving from the IT industry to the famed medical hardware manufacturers, American Orthodontics. American Orthodontics is the largest private manufacturer of orthodontic products in the world, with a presence in every developed/ developing country.
“I am six months into the job now. As Area Sales Executive in American Orthodontics India Pvt. Ltd., I am handling Sales in the North India Region. This means that although my base is Delhi NCR, most of the time I am travelling in various parts of my region. My day includes meetings with Orthodontists and prospective clients of AO.”
Amit Khandelwal feels that during the placement month, the energy levels at Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur go up an extra notch. He believes that the faculty of Jaipuria Jaipur leave no stone unturned to prepare the students for the placements.
“I am very grateful to Professor Anvay Bhargava, Head of the Placement Team at Jaipuria Jaipur, who showed me how I could play to my strengths during the interviews. My strength was my three-month long Summer Internship with Jaypee Greens. The learning during the SIP was intense. I learnt a lot about how the markets actually operate beyond the walls of Jaipuria Institute of Management.”
Amit is looking for a long innings with American Orthodontics. His take is that the healthcare industry – especially dentistry – is really recession-proof, and will always need deeply knowledgeable professionals. He is positive that if he sticks to the lessons learnt at Jaipuria Institute of Management, he will be able to excel in AO, just like he did in Goo2o.
