——————————- My Experience as below——————————–
Below was my experience, Welcome everyone to share yours too.
Many reasons affect your career choices, including the people in your life and your circumstances, though this is the best to start thinking about your career and get into your liked one as quickly as you can..
My experience is simple and powerful. Because constant in my life is “Change”.
Here I will brought you important things about my experience How i got the first job after done my degree.
I was born and brought up in Small city called Gobichettipalayam. It was in Tamilnadu – India. Did schooling’s there and I got 74% in HSC. That time my dream was into the standard university but my family situation pushed me to a small engineering college affiliated by Anna University.
From the day1 of my college day in B.Tech (Information Technology), I have joined a course for C programming near my place and I was discontinued when I found the faculty is not good(during that time there was no MOOC course like OpenSAP) and have worked in Net Cafe as a part timer which was awesome.
Time has helped me to learn the business, Computer and about internet. Special thing I learnt was digital marketing in the year 2006. Done a ton of things in the social media platform like in orkut and i likes Yahoo GeoCities – service is no longer available. My personal page “Coffee with my geocities” where everyone can take a cup of coffee and open my page to choose Tamil/English e newspaper from the list and read, gave me different experience.
College life with business went fine… my Interesting subject are programming and database. Not interesting in mathematics. I was not attending any maths class because I was busy inside the college Internet lab or Library by that time.
During those period, I took risk and made some interesting things, all from my near-ones discourage indirectly but no one has encourage except few.. Those days are most important in my life. I took a challenge about myself and achieved. I have formed a team with less number of friends. And each one starts to learn different activities. During my 4 year of college life we have attained 70% of prizes for all inter college completions and proved we are the best.
And we went to many National level technical Symposium has been conducted by leading colleges in India. Initially we went one college that was the first college. We didn’t get any prizes but we were happy that had good & tasty lunch.. 😆 And we decided to go all colleges those who are conducting National level Technical symposium at least for food. Start Googling!!! We did homework a lot. Finally everyone got at least one prize in one college for any events. We all think differently. Contacts increase like anything!!
Boom Boom!! Same time we have cleared all the university papers. Final year I was very happy when my friends cleared and got first in Aptitude test. I have zero percent interest in Aptitude test however 100% confidence to get job.
One pvt media company came to my college for on campus interview. I didn’t pass the aptitude test… I came back to class think different to do something. Then I prepared myself and directly went to placement office room to meet the HR of the company.
Finally I met the person of the company, introduce myself and start to explain the ideas about their company growth. Ensure that I gone through their website before meeting. 😀 Around 1 hour discussion finally they asked me Do you know PHP? I don’t know but immediately I said, Well.. I know very well. 😉
Then they gave me one big assignment for their next project. I have to design Fresher’s Job Portal of Video resume profile in PHP. Time limit was 15 days. They said you come and collect offer letter on 16th day if u completed successfully. First day I did analysis about PHP, installed Wampserver and start my work on day 2. On 15thday project as ready with maximum of database error. They revisited my college and voluntarily I went and shown my project. They said we are expecting from you at least 10% but u completed 70%. Wow.. 😯 I got offer letter and the nature of work is like to updating latest news, scores and organizing events seconds by seconds. My left brain says, Vasanth, Its recession period so go and join but right brain says don’t join meantime start learning something and I took good decision that not to join. Time comes to end. Say bye bye to college life.
I went to Chennai and I got a call for interview in Bangalore a very next day. Again with my things reached Bangalore. Attended many interviews, I got by rejected in aptitude round. Even I was keeping on trying. 9pm to 10pm in net cafe for finding the jobs on very next day-With 30 set of resumes I left my room by 6am. Time waits for No one, 3 months gone. 😥
I went SAP Labs for interview. I did really well because very very less aptitude and more technical. But discarded. I had many things including food inside SAP LABs. Never have seen the company like SAP is giving free snacks and food for fresher who is coming to SAP Labs.
Then personally I was started R&D about SAP Labs. Many things came out. Dream, Mission and Vision finalized. I forgot to find the jobs because I am full busy to looking my brain deep for attending SAP demo sessions. As a technical guy I planned to do SAP ABAP or SAP BI on Sept 2010.
Near my area I got a person who knows SAP BI. Let’s go. Everything I learnt and the time I am waiting for BEx and BO reporting part. I got a first SAP interview call on NOV 2010 from my current company.
Everything went fine.. Got Job. They asked me to work for some time in SCM for their Client location. One year was in Front End Supply chain L2 support and till since feb’12 working for Consumer Solution Operation(CSO) & IT-Innovation: COE team.(Center of excellence). Mid of 2011 I have started my BlogSpot. My first blog was Structure of ERP and what is ERP. Now I’m giving in my blog what SAP has released yesterday.
By Blogging and Social media event, Recently in SAP TechEd – Global Marketing team gave me 3rd out of 10 top # tweets.
