Deepak Meedha, a current PGDM student of Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur aspires to have his own event management company someday ‒ that is the motivation that pushes him to make the most out of his education and internship. Born and raised in Rajasthan, he opted for an MBA at Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur, hoping to turn his dreams into reality. He has made steady progress so far, with the latest achievement being a Summer Internship Project with Pearson that includes a handsome stipend per month along with a work profile he wanted to. Obviously, Deepak is very excited about this opportunity: “I am looking forward to my SIP with Pearson that I have bagged after a stringent selection process. I believe self confidence, work experience and quick response helped me get this SIP. Of course, we are made to learn all these right from first day inside the classroom at Jaipuria. Every assignment subtly underlines the necessity of integrating confidence and spontaneity.” He further adds- “That this is a paid experience adds to its already huge value in my perspective! I am going to share my first pay with my family and am waiting to get started”.
At Pearson, Deepak will be managing events. Just what he wanted! His primary job role includes budgeting and scheduling events. Explaining his responsibility, Deepak states, “I will be working as a team lead with a five member team. Our aim is to positively impact the admission numbers for the organization, as well as ensure branding for it”.
Deepak belongs to Bikaner, Rajasthan. He is an entrepreneur at heart and is striving hard to learn to manage situations and people in a professional role. His decision to join the management program was based on this need, as well as advice from his family and mentors.
Deepak believes Jaipuria Institute of Management is one of the best decisions of his life. Not only is he acquiring the required skills, but he is also being supported to hone these skills in the work environment. “I am continually supported by my mentor from Jaipuria, and during my SIP I plan on continually seeking his guidance. Dr Abhijit Nair, the Asst. Dean of Jaipuria, Jaipur is my mentor and he has always motivated and guided me”.
SIP has already started teaching real life lessons to Deepak, the important ones being teamwork and meeting strict deadlines. He also has specific learning objectives in mind that include handling large events, working under pressure, working in a team and leading teams, and optimizing resources. Every day he picks up something new at work and moves another step closer to his ambitions!
