My bad, I have provided too little info on this post. Please find more details below:
Name: University college of engineering, burla, Orissa (autonomous)
Major: Electrical Engineering (year 2005)
Check/mention if you were among top 10% of the students, if you were - highlight it, else no need to mention anything.
-6 yrs work experience in software testing in 3 different companies in Bangalore --
(highlight your learning that you have gained while working with three different companies, show progression A--->B---> C etc)
-All the 3 companies being fortune 500 companies. I have experience of working in both service industry and product industry.
(highlight multitasking and analytical skills that you have developed with this point of experience)
-Had lead a small team of 4 members. (Talk more about leadership and not on the no of people led)
-Being into testing, I have a high exposure to working with various kinds of people in all my projects.
-Have won numerous awards for my performance during this tenure. (List all rewards and show how your have developed as an individual)
Overall, on work ex side, I do not think that you have much to do (except taking some more leadership assignments) , but ensure that you highlight.
Extra Curricular Activities:
-Was good at sport during school ---
will not add a GREAT value though highlight it to have learned a few personal qualities e.g. concentration, perseverance etc
-During school have won a number of awards for essay writing, general knowledge and science quizzes.
(school times do not add a lot of value)
-During engineering I won the college chess championship.
( Individual role - good, but probably everyone plays one or another game during college, how are you different ? so may not add a lot of value.
-Was a part of Teach India champagne, which was aimed at educating poor children, for few months
( Now this is what they will be looking for - talk more about this on your app - talk about leadership that you would have demonstrated, i would suggest that restart your involvement for sometime if its possible.)
-Never got a chance to participate in any other social activities due to busy schedules.
No excuse please, such excuses dont communicate right approach.
I want to get into IT management ====== toooo broad -- what into IT management role ? strategy/operations/products ???
(I also like finance, however I am not sure if this is the time to change career as I already have more than 6yrs of experience in IT)
Your goals are short term (till five years from the date of graduation ) and long term ( ten years from the date of graduation )
I want to avoid going abroad, because I am married and want to stay in the country. Do you think that I stand a better chance abroad?
If it is so I can think of some way to make it work.
See, going abroad depends on whether you wish tho come back to India or you might want to settle abroad, if you think you anyhow wanna come back to India, there is no need to go for International schools (local IIMs, ISB and XLRI) could be a good fit.
