The primal principle of my life has been to live fully and work hard and from this principle has evolved my way of living and career ambitions. I aspire to constructively change the world and make it a better by leveraging my abilities to the fullest. My choice of academic and career path has been geared to this till date and looking ahead, I find it has prepared me to be a principled and innovative leader as envisaged by the MIT Sloan School of Management.
Post engineering college, I wanted to graduate embodying ..................................................., Cavitation jet erosion and Paper refiners, with the aim to gain multi-disciplinary skills and insight into various work arenas. I contributed to my Institutes most reputed student club and developed and managed xxxx internet and intranet portals. I went on to lead these in senior year even though I was from the mechanical stream- a feat virtually unheard of! My passion for innovation, zeal to make a mark and pro active leadership skills helped me accomplish this and also participate in multiple avenues. I was involved in event management, sports, trekking etc to achieve all round development.
In the work sphere, I gave full vent to my considerable energies. At xxxx, I chose the engineering projects function primarily because the vision to design and construct operational factories from nothing was fascinating and challenging. My work profile was in sync with my innate nature which thrives on challenges and is driven towards goal attainment. Recognizing my progress, my supervisor offered me the leadership role in the design, procurement and construction of a third ..................... where the mandate was to complete the entire project .....................within four months of my joining. This project included two chocolate manufacturing plants ......................... new buildings. Here too, I rose up to meet the extraordinary challenge and exceeded expectations.
As the youngest team member, I was leading many senior design staff, consultant engineers and contractors, humility, receptive yet decisive, I focused on results and coordinated with stakeholders from Quality, Production, Supply Chain, etc over design and execution. I enacted simplicity and brevity in my communications, organized operational reviews to keep the team posted on progress and cascaded deliverable and track-able targets down my team. I made mistakes, but ensured that I never repeated them. My first chocolate plant finished on planned timelines with few commissioning hiccups, the design and execution of second plant was flawless, which was highly appreciated by all stakeholders.
In retrospect, my success testified to the confidence I had in my own abilities, my zero-tolerance attitude to anything which is without 100% effort and personal sense of achievement that comes from a job well done. My previous performance and thirst for multi-disciplinary experience were the major reason for xxxxxxxxx management assigning my next/ current project as project manager in Nutrition and Dairy business a ................ processing ........................ I have quickly grasped the technologies of this business also, and incorporated good design and innovations. This new best in class plant shall be commissioned in Aug 2014; and I strongly feel that post this, xxxxxxxxxxxxx is the right next step for me. I aspire to lead engineering projects of ever increasing magnitude in global environment and I humbly believe that my innovative leadership skills will be immeasurably enhanced after a stint at MIT .
