Put some light on your Company, the job profile and the role you play in your organization?
I work for my own organization called ClickOnCare.com. I am the Co-founder of the 4 months old Healthcare, Wellness & Fitness e-commerce website. Prior to ClickOnCare, I worked with ING Vysya Bank Ltd. for 11 Months as a Sales Manager heading a team of 9 Executives, driving Sales and infusing fresh Investments within the existing relations.
What encouraged you to choose this industry and join the particular company?
E-commerce is the way people shop in the future and with Healthcare sector still unexplored, what would I be waiting for? Above encouragement is ‘what interests you’.
How is your experience in the company as well as industry so far?
With a short stint at ING, I understood 1 thing: You can either sit back and enjoy the journey or gear up and let the journey give you enjoyment. Industry is a sophisticated representation of hard work & slogging; so push yourself like there are no limits.
How is professional world different from the life in MBA?
I really appreciate the Christ’s way of learning. The professional atmosphere within CUIM lets you easily slip in to the Corporate Sector.
Are there any additional courses / certifications that you recommend in this field?
Decide what you want for your career and accordingly take up courses. Do not take up any certification just because your Job Prospects with a particular company may go higher, but for sheer knowledge. Certify your interests before anything else.

Role Models limit your achievements, I do not have them. My parents are my Inspiration.

I try and keep up with my interests.

Continuous, evolving Innovation along with self-driven morale is a mandate.
