Chandra Mani builds his career in retail sector
Marketing and Sales PG Diploma
Government Polytechnic, Barabanki
Medha Class of 2015
Chandra Mani is the second-youngest of six brothers and most of them work in the Government sector. His family insisted that he study for the highly-competitive Government Civil Service exam but he wasn’t sure he wanted to follow that career path. Before joining Medha, he wasn’t aware of the other career opportunities available outside of the Government sector.
Chandra Mani discovered Medha in the first year of his marketing and sales post-graduate degree at Government Polytechnic in Barabanki. He was doing well in his classes, but was becoming very nervous about his job prospects. He realized that his college didn’t offer any classes to prepare students for the workplace. After hearing about Medha from a friend, he joined the one-month Career Advancement Bootcamp.
The teamwork workshops and public speaking activities helped him build his confidence and interpersonal skills and the industry visits exposed him to careers he never knew existed. After completing the program, Medha found him a full-time job at the clothing retail store Central. He has been working at Central for three months now and is advancing quickly in his position as a fashion consultant where he is being trained in Microsoft Excel, customer sales development, and inventory management.
We are extremely proud of Chandra Mani to be starting his career with a leading brand in retail.
