Siddharth Mishra came to Jaipuria Institute of Management, Noida with one intent – to get placed in one of the top companies in the country – and he fulfilled his dream by getting a placement in Berger Paints! But looking back, he thinks he got more than just the realisation of his goals from Jaipuria. “A major benefit that I see is self development. I’ve seen myself getting transformed from a lazy couch potato to an active and confident guy, full of a positive attitude.”
Siddharth has been placed as Sales Officer Trainee with Berger Paints India Ltd. through the campus placement. His job profile is to work closely with customers, acting as an all-round business consultant, and to identify how he can make the business more profitable. “I will start out as a trainee sales executive or representative, marketing products and services in a particular geographical area or business sector and will also be responsible for developing existing customer relationships and finding new customers.” The selection process for Berger included an Aptitude Test, a Group Discussion, Personal Interview and finally Video Conferencing. His topic for the GD was “Education without Value Education Is No Education” and then he was interviewed in detail, with a focus on his Summer Internship Project and choice of companies. The Video Conference interview was held by the MD himself and was performance-based.
Siddharth is appreciative of the recruitment process at Jaipuria and says, “The placement scenario at Jaipuria is really good. Every second day, there is some company or the other coming for recruitment, with good packages and good job profiles.” He also recognises the support he received from the faculty and the T & P cell. His dream of a good job having come true, Siddharth is looking forward to an exciting career.
