A person of sweet disposition, Anukriti was delighted when she got a chance to work with EY, one of the big 4 organizations. Here she talks about how the industry exposure helped her experience the major international breakthrough projects she was a part of during her SIP. As someone who enjoys market research just as much she does her biryani, Anukriti shares how she rediscovered her niche and flare going forward - to now holding her pre-placement offer from EY that she could never be more glad to accept.

HUMANS OF SIMSR Story by: Richa Chaturvedi All About Your Choices Sometimes when you look back, you suddenly feel so great about the choices you made which for once or for a second you feared about, but ultimately it’s your choices that take you to places you want to go. From starting my primary education in Hindi medium school in a small district, to shifting to a new city, to facing the language hurdles, to being a laughing spot for all the sophisticated students around (who defined their sophistication by their ability to speak fluent English), to becoming the Head Girl of the same school, to moving to Delhi for an undergraduate course, to doing the craziest things in the 3 best years of my undergraduate and eventually getting a job in one of the most desired companies. Roller coaster ride indeed! But the actual battle started now. People say that when you grow up, you need to make tough decisions and to my surprise, I thought I had grown up (not by age for sure). A well-reputed job which could land me in the US in 2 years to come or a 2 year MBA program. When there were multiple opinions echoing day and night in my head about job security, future opportunities, getting married and “settling down”, I somewhere had my heart and mind on one thing and I went to the office the next day and resigned. I don’t have words to describe that feeling but that it set me free. Yes, I was finally going to do an MBA. The journey of all those nightmarish entrance exams and the taxing admission process was quite stressful. But in the middle of this, I always had this desire to study in Mumbai. Reason being – This city has got its own vibe which cannot be explained but can only be felt. That’s when KJ SIMSR happened. As I come to the end of it, I get a lump in my throat realizing that the college where I learnt a lot and laughed my heart out is about to get over but at the same time I feel so overwhelmed, both professionally and personally, to have gotten so much that there was no scope I could ask for more. In the end and not sounding too dramatic, I would just say that do not try to fit in or adjust for others’ happiness, rather find your own. And I think all this way, I found mine! #SIMSR #OptimismUnbound #MasterYourFutureAtSIMSR #HumansOfSIMSR
The love for chocolates and passion to bring Kotler principles to life brought Maithili to an internship at Amul GCMMF. Providing her with key marketing learnings, the internship allowed her to delve deeper into the functionalities of the brand itself. The enriching experience taught her a lot about the world of marketing and stayed true to her agenda of learning

Thank You in Advance

Because everyone has a story
...But, why do you want to leave God's Own Country? - The interviewer looked up confused with my CV which depicted 25 years of hopping in and around Kerala. "Why not Ma'am ?"
This question has lingered over since I hit the age of puberty(that story is for some other time).Oh yeah, I was a bit slow with my pace - I did an engineering course which has nothing to do with my kinda grey cells, I didn't have my dream job having a lump some stash in my savings account but So What? I have travelled whenever possible not the backpacking which cool people do, but the planned cancelled replanned trips which brought peace and happiness in my life while food stories for my Instagram feed. They might call it cliched, but if it brings happiness to me then Why Not ? In SIMSR, when people asked me why HR? I asked again why not? If this is what makes me happy and where I see myself making a difference then why crawl with the crowd? (Also, for one last time I repeat Rangoli is not my kind of HR aspirations even when the whole world decides to pass a comment on that, Chill.)
Not in the two digit package league yet,
I have not planned my wedding yet,
Have not done the Leh Ladakh trip yet - what's the haste for?
Mumbai coastal breeze against my face, I am living my happy phase. At the moment, doing the pending assignments, working for a committee and slothing at the hostel brings me peace. It's not a race, she believed in her hindered pace. Every being is different but it takes up the courage to Be You!
Take it easy, Urvasi ..
A true believer in helping others, working in a hospital seemed natural to Ira, who's a student of PGDM Healthcare Management. So when she got to intern with Kokilaben Dirubhai Ambani Hospital, the Number 1 hospital in Mumbai, she knew she was on the right path. Here she talks about her 2 months in KDAH as an HR intern and how it went by in the blink of an eye, leaving her with clarity on her professional roads moving forward.
does KJ allow to choose only single specialization during 2nd year(either operations, markeing, finance etc) or can we choose major+minor also?
