Placement Story of Puja Sarma: PGDM 2021 student on Jaipuria Institute of Management
Puja Sarma is not someone who sits on the sidelines. When she took admissions at Jaipuria Management Institute, Noida to pursue a PGDM course, she also started taking interest in new add-on courses online. An active learner, Puja devoted her time to learning more about artificial intelligence, blockchain, and other disruptive technologies. Meanwhile, she also learned languages like JAVA, C, PYTHON.
All this came in handy during her recent selection at National Payments Corporation of India (International) – NPCI. As a Management Trainee- Associate Business Development, she has been offered a package of Rs 6.35 lakhs.
Puja remembers the day when she got the news about her final selection. “I informed my family immediately. They were really happy. My parents started asking details about the company,” she says.
“I am thrilled that in these difficult times Jaipuria Institute of Management has managed to get the best placements for students. I’m thankful to my mentors and the placement team because their inspiration helped me in getting this job in a leading organization.”
In the role of Business Development Associate at NPCI, she has to deal with foreign banks regarding the UPI and RUPAYEE card services.
Excited about her appointment, Puja looks forward to working in the Payments industry. And she says that her aim is to learn more about how Payments happen in India and other countries. Also, how these payment settlements are done.
“More than the job, the opportunity to learn from here is immense,” she says.
“Every learning helps you evolve. And one of the best career decisions I have taken is to pursue PGDM Course from Jaipuria. When I look back, I can happily say that the two years of MBA and rigorous training I got at this top Business School will stay with me for life,” Puja shares.
At Jaipuria, every student is given online training sessions on how to use the zoom, MS teams, and hangouts platforms. These sessions have become helpful to those who aren’t comfortable with these online platforms.
For Puja, being an achiever means putting in hard work. She says it is not ‘just about knowing something. It is being able to put your thoughts across with the right perspective and in the right context. Communication goes a long way in an interview.
Narrating her interview experience she shares that she had to go through a psychometric test, aptitude test and there were GK sections also. Thereafter, two HR rounds were held which were intensive. Myriad questions were asked like – questions based on SIP, technical knowledge, situational-based questions, and a few random general questions. Empowered by a PGDM, cheered by her classmates, and inspired by professors/mentors Puja has taken the first step towards victory. Let’s all wish her a grand success.
