Neebal’s BCAPS Champ, Shreshtha Rajkotia, has always projected a great work ethic and is always keen to help her team members. Here is more about her journey at Neebal:
How did you get your start in <engineering/sales/programming>
I got my start through project management.
What would you say has been your greatest accomplishment?
I was assigned the first-ever digital marketing project in my prior company. Being new to the field with no guidance, I took it up as a challenge and successfully completed the project, and further helped set up an in-house digital marketing team while leading other digital projects as well.
What motivates you? OR What motivates you to go above and beyond at work?
I get motivated when my hard work and efforts are noticed and appreciated. It drives me to push myself and explore more to deliver better results.
Who inspires you? Who are your role models or mentors?
My mother inspires me the most. She is a perfectionist in any work she does and manages things very well, hence my management qualities certainly come from her. Apart from my mother, Sagar is a great mentor too. He has taught me not to cry over spilled milk but rather be attentive and take necessary action to ensure that the same mistake doesn't happen again.
What are the activities/value systems that made you achieve this great milestone?
Believing in myself, and the determination to continuously learn helped me achieve this milestone.
How do you deal with stress in life and at work?
Listening to music helps me calm down, or taking a quick nap to re-energise myself works too.
What advice would you give someone that is just starting out?
While the financial aspects of a job are important, skills help one sustain it. Be focused, write down your goals, and work hard on sharpening your skills to achieve them, and everything else will follow eventually.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Binge-watching and eating junk food.
What is one characteristic that you believe every <engineer/sales personnel/programmer> should possess?
Every project manager should maintain transparent communication between all the stakeholders and manage time efficiently.
