“I truly found my wings at NIIT University and they are going to be with me forever,” says new graduate Bhavya Narang, who has had a solid start to her professional career with her placement with Ernst & Young. B.Tech. Class of 2022 student, who chose Cybersecurity as her specialization impressed her employers during her Industry Practice (IP). Now working as a Senior Analyst with one of the Big 4s in the industry, she takes us through the steps that led to her prestigious placement.
While Bhavya was sharpening her tech skills during the course of her programme, she thrived in an environment that encouraged her holistic growth. She also had her eyes trained on the prized catch with her placement. “With the beginning of the third year at NU, I started to keep tabs on the recruitment process and organizations coming to campus for placement. I kept researching about the process and the selection criteria,” she reveals. So when the interview process began, she was ready to make her mark.
Bhavya talks about the mentorship and practical exposure she gained at NU as the key factors that led to her transformation into an industry-ready professional. She is also grateful to the Centre for Industrial Collaboration (CIC) for presenting students with the best placement opportunities. “The CIC ensured that the entire placement process was smooth and seamless. Whenever I went through any difficulties, they were just a call away. The presentation skills, time management and focus on quality work I gained at NU will always be with me,” she adds.
Bhavya brought those skills along with oodles of confidence to EY as she began her IP. Proving her mettle every step of the way, she made the opportunity count and bagged the placement with one of the big 4s. “My time at EY has been a roller coaster ride. Grabbing every opportunity to learn and to get hands-on experience has helped me grow as a person. I can already feel the change in my confidence and personality,” she says enthusiastically. And this is just the beginning for Bhavya, who is set to go places in her career.
