    My parents work as government employees. I was born and raised in Lucknow. I like to travel, try different adventure sports and read novels. My aspiration is to become a web developer. The reason I joined Medha was to improve my communication skills. I was very shy and introverted earlier, but Medha has helped me open up a lot. I did my first presentation in these classes. I think the pace at which the world is moving it is vital to have good communication skills for growth prospects.

    I am born and raised in Lucknow. I want to initially work with either Microsoft or Google and then start my own company. My father is a government employee and my mother is a housewife. My parents want me to take up a government job after graduation but I would prefer to work with a private company. The duration of Medha classes were too short to get any major change in my personality. However,these classes have helped me get an insight about the IT industry. The industry talks have helped me get a clarity about the different job profiles within the IT sector.

    I belong to a middle class family. My father is a government employee and my mother works as a teacher. My parents encourage me to become independent, and want me take up a job in the next two to three years. I have always been keen to learn how different computer programs work. This was the reason I wanted to become a program coder. Before joining Medha, I was very shy and unable to speak in front of a gathering. I joined Medha to overcome this hesitation and to learn how to represent myself in front of other people.

    I was born and raised in Lucknow. My father is an ex army serviceman and my mother is a teacher in a government school. My hobbies are learning new things related to technology and cooking different cuisines. I aspire to become a successful entrepreneur. I think even if you are self employed there are a certain set of skills that are required to run your own business. Medha classes have helped me develop teamwork abilities and honed my leadership qualities. At the certification ceremony I was responsible for delegating work to everyone and taking care of the accounts. This experience helped me boost my confidence and practically implement what I learnt in these classes.

In my free time I like to read novels and paint. I am an introvert and have always been shy to work in a group. Lack of confidence and social awkwardness were the major problems I struggled with before joining Medha classes. In these classes there were certain sessions that have played a major role in bringing a change in my outlook. The session on presentation skills and teamwork has helped me increase my confidence level tremendously.

    After enrolling in MCA I was very confused about the career path that I should follow. I have always been looking for career guidance opportunities. Medha provided me one such opportunity where I could realize my strengths and weaknesses. I am a very talkative person but when it comes to speaking in the public I become very nervous. After joining Medha's career bootcamp my confidence level has increased considerably. The industry talks by IT experts helped me clear my doubts regarding career choices in the IT industry. At this juncture I am more determined to pursue a career in the IT sector as a software developer. I think this job is a good fit to my skills and expectations.

    I want a job immediately after BCA and Medha has provided me with a overall view on how to prepare myself for job interviews. The mock interview session was the most useful session since it helped me understand the key points that should be used while appearing for an interview.

    Since childhood I knew I could write well.The only problem I face is to communicate with other people. I remember instances from my school days when asked to address a huge crowd I would always fumble and shiver. I had a huge stage fear. After joining Medha I feel there has been a huge transition in my personality.

The way a CV is professionally presented and how to present yourself in an interview I thought was the most important learning in the career advancement bootcamp.

    I joined Medha to improve my personality, however the experience has gone way beyond that. To me is has been a holistic improvement. As a part of Medha’s curriculum, I also opted for a month-long project/internship in Eureka Forbes in their field sales function. In this engagement, I conducted customer surveys and interacted with potential customers. I successfully completed my internship and was offered a full-time position at Eureka Forbes. I have been working there for four months now, and feel a tremendous change in myself after being employed and that too in a sales function.

    Though my father has provided an educational environment since I was young, and I’m glad that all my siblings are either studying or working, it was only after doing the Medha course that I came to know about my shortcomings. Had I not joined this course, I would have missed out on so much. I’m more aware of different career paths now and my confidence has definitely gotten a boost.

My other two bothers failed their board exams and started helping my father in the fields. When I’m not studying, I like to cook, listen to music, and work on the nuances of stitching with my mother. I was very shy and introverted earlier, but Medha has helped me open up a lot. I did my first role play here, and learned the importance of teamwork. After I finish studying I want to become a police officer.

They both want me to find a good job in the next two to three years and contribute to the family income. Before joining Medha, talking to new people and expressing my ideas was a nightmare. I used to be very shy and have extremely low self-confidence. I joined Medha because the principal at my college recommended it. After the first few classes, I was hooked because of the unique teaching style and the interesting topics taught at Medha.

    I come from a small, middle-class family. My father is a retired storekeeper from the Indian Army, my mother is a homemaker, and I have a younger brother. I have completed a one-year diploma in Computer Applications (ADCA), and a six-month typing course. I joined Medha because it promised an engaging learning experience and improved job skills. I think the Medha method of teaching is completely unique and lots of fun.

    My parents are encouraging me to find a Probationary Officer (PO) job at a public-sector bank. I will work hard to find such a job because it commands respect, provides a good salary, and is women-friendly.

    My father is an electrician at a nearby medical college and mother is a housewife. I have a big family with three sisters and two brothers. I like to read, write, and sing and want to be a psychologist. Medha has taught us the importance of communication, teamwork, and co-ordination.

    My father is a sales manager in a pharmaceutical company and mother is a housewife. I have two brothers who are both engineers. I like dancing and playing outdoor games. The biggest change I have felt since joining Medha is that I'm less nervous now. I used to get really shy and quiet when called on before, but now I'm not as afraid. In the future, I'd like to go for a teaching or banking job.

    The Medha program has brought in a lot of change in my personality and thinking. Not only have I received invaluable career guidance through the program, but it has also helped me increase my confidence and improve my public speaking skills.

    I have four brothers and a sister and all of them are currently studying. My father is a labourer and mother is a housewife. I’d love to be a teacher one day once I complete my studies.

    With Medha, I learned how to overcome stage fright and perform without being petrified. It taught me that having belief in oneself is necessary. Now I’m not as hesitant when I start conversations with people I don't know. Medha also taught us that there isn’t just one perspective on things, and we should take all angles into account before forming an opinion.

    I have always been afraid to speak in public. With Medha I learned how to overcome my stage fright through the skit that we performed.

    My father works for Indian Railways and my mother looks after the rest of our family in the village. I wanted to become a doctor, but my 12th grade teacher made me fill out an application for commerce subjects. My dream now is to start my own business. I love painting and jewelry design and I think I can excel as an interior designer.

    The only reason I would work after graduation would be to gain experience and save money to start my own interior design company. I joined Medha primarily to learn about computers and to get information about job opportunities in Lucknow. My favorite exercise was working on MS Excel. The industry talk by one of the managers at Axis Bank provided me a lot of inspiration to pursue my dream.

    I belong to the village Besha, where my father and mother both work as laborers. They weave jute sacks. I have two sisters and two brothers. I want to change the economic condition of my family and want to find a job as soon as I graduate. In an ideal world, I would have loved to become an air hostess - that is my dream. But realistically, I see myself doing a clerical or sales job at a respectable private company.

    Before joining Medha, I was very shy and unable to speak in front of a gathering. I joined Medha to overcome this hesitation and to learn computers. My favorite ‘scenario’ was Internet research, because it was the first time I used the Internet. I also enjoyed our industry visit. Medha gives me an opportunity to work on my own, explore things, and learn through the process. I really love this method of teaching.

    My father runs a fruit shop in Bangla Bazar and my mother works as a helper at Anganwadi. I have two brothers and two sisters. We recently constructed our own house and my family is concerned about repaying the loans incurred during the project. They want me to find work as soon as I graduate. I have completed a one-year vocational training program in automobile repairs with Scooter India, but I would rather work at a call centre instead. Once the financial condition of my home improves I would like to resume my studies.

    I joined Medha to learn about computers and improve my communication skills. I feel like I have made significant progress with Medha in both areas.

    My father works as a sales agent with the State Bank of India (SBI) and my mother is an Anganwadi teacher. I have a younger brother and a sister. My parents encourage me to become independent, and want me take up a job in the next two to three years. My father wants me to clear the IAS exams and become a bureaucrat. I like jobs that involve flying. I would love to work either as an air hostess or in the Indian Air Force.

    I joined Medha to improve my English communication skills because they are required for all aviation jobs. I also want to know more about other career options. The best part about Medha is that complex concepts and long processes are taught in a short amount of time. I am glad I did not have to spend six months learning PowerPoint!

    I have a very supportive family. My father is a computer operator with the Intelligence Bureau (IB) and my mother is a homemaker. I have two brothers. I used to want to become an air hostess earlier, but now, after growing up I think it is not such a great job for girls. I want to become a translator now. My favorite subject in school is physical education, and I’ve won many medals in sports, but making a career in the field usually takes a long time.

    I joined Medha because I was very excited about their new teaching method, and wanted to learn more about computers. The best part of the Medha program is that every class is completely different from the previous one. My favorite activity was creating a PowerPoint presentation. It gave me a chance to work on the Internet and use photos and other media to express myself. I had never done anything like it before and enjoyed the experience very much.

    I live in the Railway Colony at Alambagh in Lucknow. My father works as an electrician for the Indian Railways and is nearing retirement and my mother is a homemaker. I am an only child. I joined Medha to enhance my job skills. I feel very encouraged when I am in a Medha class. Our instructors actually care about us and our future. I did a certificate course in MS Office from a private institute but did not learn very much. I was not confident enough to even perform simple and basic tasks. With Medha, I have become proficient in MS Office.

    I want to pursue a career in computer applications because I am fond of working on computers. However, I am not entirely sure what sort of job opportunities and career paths are available in the field.

I joined the Medha program because I found it interesting, and a break from our regular, boring classes. My favorite part has been working with MS Office. I enjoy making charts and presentations.

    I am currently confused and undecided about my career. I hope Medha will help me figure out what is best for me.

    My father is an electrician and mother is a housewife. I have two brothers and one sister. Due to financial constraints, my siblings dropped out of school but I carried on because I was adamant on studying further. My father agreed to it, and allowed me to pursue college where I came to know about Medha. New avenues seem to be opening up now as I am more aware of where I'm heading. I hope I get a chance to learn from Medha at post-graduation level too!
