How did you start your journey at Neebal?
One of my friends recommended me here for a quality analyst position.The HR called me and set up a meeting for a technical round. I ensured that I was well-prepped as I really wanted to land this job. My interviewer was knowledgeable and she asked me questions which are related to quality, which further led to talks about my career goals and personal life. Later that day I was waiting for the HR round and finally I got to hear the magic words- Congratulations, you have landed the job! That's how I started my journey with Neebal.
What motivates you to go above and beyond at work?
I am motivated by professional growth. In my current job role I am always looking for ways to learn new things, for instance, I watch YouTube tutorials and read blogs to learn more about different topics. I find developing my knowledge and upskilling really valuable; and that’s something I can really see myself doing in this role.
What has your experience at Neebal been like so far?
Teams here are like one big family. I am glad to have people around me who help me to grow. Neebal is continuously helping me in learning and growing.
How do you deal with stress in life and at work?1. Be Comfortable. Take your time.
2. Forget Multitasking.
3. Eat healthy.
Who inspires you? Who are your role models or mentors?
That is a pretty hard question to answer. There are so many names that pop up in my head, but with this particular role I would say Ajay and Arjun both are my role models.
I would like to dedicate this quote to Arjun-
A good mentor- allow mentees to make mistakes, and then use the mistakes as positive opportunities to learn. They know that they were once in a similar position, and have empathy for mentees as they take risks and seek to grow in their desired skill or field.
What are the activities/value systems that made you achieve this great milestone?
You deserve to achieve your goals and dreams. If you want something, you have to go for it — but you have to go about the right way to achieve it. Be positive, persistent yet patient, have resilience and always be adaptable.
What is your relationship with your team and how do they affect your work? OR How important is being a part of a team?
I love being a part of the H2O team. Teamwork is essential to reach a common goal. The more ideas you have, the more likely you are to come up with viable solutions. Teamwork doesn’t just apply to sports teams and big corporations. It also applies to many aspects of business and personal relationships.
