I recently met Ankur, a senior vice-president in a reputed MNC at Gurugram. After graduating from prestigious IIT Kharagpur in 2002, he joined XYZ, an analytics firm started by some IITians. After 6 years, XYZ was acquired by ABC. It has been 16 years and he is still working in his first company.
I also know Nikhil who graduated from a normal college, but he kept switching jobs after each 3-4 years. Today he has more than 15 years of experience. In his 6th job, he has reached till VP-level.
I had a friend in my college. She is now a research scientist in Paris. It has been 2 years since we passed out from college. Most of my friends are just doing jobs, but she is living her dream life with a dream job. Do you know what does it take to get a job of your dreams?
Without going to those “tips”, let me explain how did my friend get a dream job in Paris after passing out from a normal engineering college in India.
