Have u heard of the term "Detour" thats exactly the feeling i got reading ur SOP....i was goin here....then i went here....then i took a u turn & went there....etc etc etc....
So Moral of the story is "I have reached nowhere"
Ok coming back to the SOP....its a jumbled up affair which u might have guessed i would be saying...so put all the pieces together in a manner that they look like a complete picture..in short tighten the shoe strings together
The start u made is creative in fact i havent seen any SOP here which begins with a Ad-tagline but then the lines which followed it raised some anticipation & then poofffff in the climax the story was wandering around..
U need to restructure ur SOP in a manner that leads around what u did & what u want to do in a better way
Please provide feedback for my SOP for Symbiosis.(word limit: 500)
Kuch khass hai zindagi mein I recall this slogan of Cadbury which influenced me so much as a kid that I used to eat only Cadburys dairy milk though our refrigerator was filled with swiss chocolates. Witnessing the countless commercials, it wasnt hard for me to understand the importance of advertisements in the marketing of a product. I believe I am good at many things and deciding upon a career has been tough for me.
After completing high school, I managed to get into a top electronics engineering program. This program not only gave me a good foundation in technology but also gave me the flexibility to work in other distinct fields. Apart from regular courses, owing to my personal interests, I participated in various cultural activities and learned latin dancing to enhance the creative side of me. I also conducted a workshop for latin dancing. The work was very interesting and it gave a broad outlook to interact and understand people. It also made me understand various subtle nuances that goes into functioning of a business.
After grad school, I received an offer to be a part of a business development team in a textile chemical company. I looked at it as a great learning opportunity as sales was the first step towards advertisement. This role gave me the opportunity to apply the logical process of thinking inculcated in during engineering to non technical aspects. After gaining hands on experience here I switched to a mid size recruitment firm. Regular interactions with high level clients are a regular feature of this job. Therefore in a very short time I have learnt a lot from various interactions on how to deal with a variety of people and solve various issues by thinking on my feet. After gaining practical experience in sales, I tried to learn about the creative part of sales. i.e. advertising. I started reading books on advertising. I discovered that every time I read about advertising, the drive I felt is what I imagine David Ogilvy must feel to come to work every day.
At this point, I started re-evaluating my goal of becoming a brand manager for a media industry. In short term, I seek a career that will marry my parallel interests in sales and advertising. For this, I need to back my graduate degree with an MBA program from a top class communication B-School. So that I can enter the corporate world fully equipped with all theoretical/practical skills that will aid me in facing the complex business environment with confidence. SIMC, with its eminent faculty & diverse real life projects can actualize my dream.

Statement of Purpose (Please type in 200 words your reason for joining our PGDM Programme)
i have checked all the pointers u mentioned last time..read and see what else could be done..everytime i make correction its like whole other sop to me..
anyways..here it is..
My dreams have been my inspiration and my passion is my impetus. Pursuing a PGDM would, I believe, actualize my full potential and expedite my career to great heights. It will open all the channels that lead to a brighter and bigger future, as I want to be a leader and be best at it.
I am a(have been a) sincere student and I(remove) did reasonably well in(remove) both in school and college. I posses technical aptitude and have a strong inclination towards managerial skills. My most distinguishing trait is my adaptability and my varied experiences are my ultimate wealth. I have organized(did u do them single handedly if not then say "I was part of the organising committee for ") various events like college fests MECHLLOYS, VERSTALIA, CORPORATE MEETS, PLACEMENT DRIVES, BLOOD DONATING CAMPS etc. It helped me learn the importance of team work, planning, strategy building an appropriate execution.
At this juncture with these prerequisites(remove) I need a centre of learning that will enhance my knowledge giving me an edge over others and higher education from an institute of national repute as SCMS is my foremost choice as a career groomer, with its unique methodology, booming industry exposure and passionate alumni, I am sure it would provide me the right path to achieve my goal of making a trailblazing mark in the Management Industry.
Now thats what is called implementing constructing criticism...u've done well to incorporate all my suggestions...It looks in great shape now...Best of Luck:cheerio::cheerio:
Hey ..thanks a lot..its funny how I went overboard with self praise..didnt realise it..Ok here is a modified version.. better ?
Charles Darwin said It is neither the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change."
In today's fast paced world his words are relevant more than ever. I believe this is my biggest strength. I am not afraid of any change. Also, my ability to multitask has helped me to balance a plethora of extracurricular activities. I have portrayed my leadership skills by coordinating an Indo-Italian green and Clean conference on an environmental awareness drive and being part of the DD Commentary Team in Robocon 2008.Currently I am working in an multinational IT company. All these have been stepping stones towards a larger goal- a career in a fast paced global environment with a continuous need to learn and unlearn which involves innovative challenges. SRCC, one of the premier institutes with its esteemed faculty shall provide the correct pedestal for gaining a Management program. An opportunity to learn from the Industrys finest minds and study among the best, agile minds shall certainly spruce me up for the Business world.
Now it looks fine with some minor edits...Best of Luck:cheerio::cheerio:
After writing my first not so good SOP, I have tried and done some changes in the previous one. It would be of great help from your end if you can just check and suggest corrections if any.
How would you describe yourself?
(In answer, you should write in not more than 200 words addressing your personal qualities,strengths,weaknesses and activities that interest you. you may also like to touch upon what your parents and friends think of you.)
I am a man of my word, passionate and caring. Born and brought in Kolkata, life has been through tough surface so far with challenges, some disappointments and some achievements.
I take pleasure in saying that I have had the exposure of the corporate life right after my Plus II. Work experience of over 3 years in B.P.O has added immense knowledge related to team handling skills, overcoming stress and taking up pressure from all directions. Started from the entry level proved performance and transcended to the level of a Team leader. Till now its been a great working experience altogether.
My work experience has given me enough exposure to identify my strengths which include but not limited to, being a good coordinator, motivator and a team player. Like my strengths I also have my share of weakness like, I am a bit impatient if tasks overloads(remove s) and sometime too aggressive leading to being harsh(remove this).
Moving to personal life, I like playing cricket, reading books and articles on Internet. Being the eldest among the siblings I have shouldered the responsibility well in managing my family, my parents agree and consider me a caring and responsible son. My friends and colleagues turn to me for help as they think me as dependable and trustworthy.
Not so much time is left to submit this, today being the last date. Would appreciate your immediate feedback, so that I can just do last minute changes and send it across.
Good part of ur SOP is that u have woven ur SOP around the Quote u have put so it does not look out of place
Bad Part is most of it looks blatant exaggeration...& that any one can tell with a blind eye....u dont have to be so desperate to show that u r the greatest thing that was ever born on this planet.....u need to display a quality called "Humility"
U have correctly identified that there is not place for u to incorporate ur Work ex.....That place will automatically appear if u rework it along these lines
Grammar error no 1 Its "Grammar" not Grammer
