Let me start with some interesting facts about me…. I quit my MBA after completing 2 years as I felt the program was extremely bookish and theoretical. I am a complete Bollywood fan and you will recognise that if you read any of my blogs. I find myself being able to laugh at many things that are supposedly serious and that gets reflected in my blogs too. As a person I am a pseudo rebel and fiercely independent except when I have to change a bulb. Am an atheist by heart, but I find God in Nature and Beauty. And so I travel a lot and enjoy every bit of it.
Now for some boring facts… I started my career with a Business Process Outsourcing company and handled roles in Operations, Quality & Process Migrations. Simultaneously I did my Diploma in Human Resource Management from NMIMS. I used to enjoy practicing (read experimenting) some of my HR fundas on my team. I tried getting into a full time Corporate HR role which is never easy for someone who doesn’t have an MBA and experience in HR. So took up a role in a growing HR Consulting firm and learnt everything there is about Hiring, Business Development and P&L Management. I left them as Head of one of their businesses. Took a sabbatical and then joined a Bank where I currently head HR & Training. I am also a Certified Coach with International Coach Federation & ACTP.
People who knew me said I have clarity of thought and communication, so I decided to start this blog on career management. But turns out that I am not as wise as I thought I was. So I started writing about some silly happenings from my personal life and realised that I enjoyed that a lot more. Thus ‘worklife’ became ‘work & life’ in my blog.
