Q 1. What is a typical day/meet like in your society?
A typical day/meet in my society usually lasts for 45 minutes and consists of relevant knowledge sharing via alumni/seniors talks. The meets usually revolve around various professional aspects like interview preparation, resume building, case studies and discussions on various job profiles/domains. The meets do have an interactive ending which is basically the question and answer round and also fun events are organised. All in all, the meets certainly helps me in growing professionally.
Q 2. What have been your accomplishments while working in your society?
Since becoming a member of MCC, I have participated in 7 national level case study competitions. Out of which I have been top-3 in 6 and won 1 which was Consilium’15 Case in point. Also, I was the national finalist in marketmania, SRCC Business Conclave’15, the biggest undergraduate marketing challenge. Besides, I secured an internship at Deloitte US-India (On Campus) for summers’16 and Uber for summers’15 (Off Campus).
Q 3. What is the level of interaction amongst the members in your society?
3/5. The level of interaction between member of society is satisfactory with scope of improvement being immense. Main reasons behind this are clashing of timings and other commitments for the members. Also lack of initiative by members could be one cause and we are working hard towards solving this issue.
Q 4. What all life lessons have you learnt as an active part of your society?
Life lessons to be learnt via being active in any society in general are many. Firstly, hours of working together and tireless brainstorming leads to development of qualities like teamwork and patience. Secondly, managing academics and society work, teaches an individual the most important trait of time management and performing under pressure. Thirdly, given the responsibility of pulling off any event, makes the individual more responsible and evolve him/her as a leader. Lastly, it increases the self-confidence quotient and also improves the inter-personal skills of an individual.
Q 5. How do you feel, on a personal level, while working in your society?
Personally, for a person like me, with an aim of pursuing this career in the future (management), joining and working in MCC, provides an immense level of personal satisfaction and experience that will help me a lot. However, dealing with wide ranging personalities does tend to be cumbersome at times yet fun in tackling. All in all, being the only society that I am a part of, MCC hasn’t let me down and its on the right path to resurgence.
