I am working as Assistant systems Engineer in a leading Indian IT company and will have an experience of 4 years by the time I join B-school. I am currently leading a team of 3 people in a Financial domain project (Lloyds Bank). My experience includes an international exposure of almost 1.5 years in UK, working for Lloyds again. Although my profile is very common, I have done executed some critical IT projects for the bank at onsite as Live Project Implementation manager, benefitting millions of customers and leading to over $100 million in profits for the Bank. I am hoping to leverage this aspect of my profile. Do you think it will help??
Led college team to many inter-college cricket tournaments, Organized a Technical Competition in Inter-College Fest, secretary of Literary and Debating club in college, judged many singing competitions as a member of Music and Fine Arts club, organized blood donation camps and volunteered for Earth Conservation March.
