Abhishek Kumar is all set to head out to the financial capital of India – Mumbai. Having recently been placed in ICICI Securities, Abhishek confides that the placement season in Jaipuria Institute of Management has shown no signs of the economic slowdown.
“On the contrary, placements for our batch at Jaipuria Institute of Management have been excellent. Being placed while still a management student has been a great blessing. It has taken a lot of pressure off my shoulders.”
Apart from enjoying his last few days on the Jaipuria campus, Abhishek is busy making full use of the experienced faculty of Jaipuria Institute of Management to gain insights into his new role as Relationship Manager at ICICI Securities. He is positive that this will give him the edge that he needs at the start of his career.
“As a Relationship Manager, I will be responsible for engaging and buildingrelationships with the current set of clients, as well as bring in new clients. Since quite a number of faculty members at Jaipuria Institute of Management are from a corporate background, I’ve been interacting with them on methods of ‘cold calling’ and converting ‘suspects’ into ‘prospects’, and various other pre-sales techniques. My joining date is likely to be in the first week of April and I’d like to get as much of a
head-start as possible.”
Describing the placement month at Jaipuria, Abhishek says that the experienced mentors from the placement cell ensured that no visiting company went back without recruiting.
“The ICICI Securities placement process was organised in the Jaipuria Indore campus on 28thFebruary, 2013. It started with a presentation by the representatives of ICICI Securities, followed by the interviewing process. My personal interview went on for a good 25-30 minutes. Thanks to the stress on the GD, PI, Aptitude test and general awareness by our mentors at Jaipuria Indore, I was very clear on what to expect. We also had classes on how to improve our personality, dress correctly, etc., which are expected from a fresher in an organisation.”
Abhishek Kumar underscores that the Jaipuria Group of Institutes provides all the necessary facilities that are needed by a student to prepare for corporate life. He advises MBA aspirants that since management institutes are coming up everywhere in the country, the best way is to “believe only what they see”.
Since there is no other management institute in the Indore region that caters to global standards, he encourages youngsters to work hard and make it to Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore, to be able to get a better return on the money they will invest in a management degree.
