My story with Beyond? …well lets take it from the start – a student’s joined from Bombay to US with hopes of a Masters degree and ambitions of becoming a millionaire. I came to US in 2008 to pursue my Masters at NC State in Computer Engg, which was probably the most enriching experience of my academic life. After about 2 years of intense ( yet sometimes frivolous ) education and some wonderful projects which can put a smile on any geek’s face 🙂 I finally received my MS Degree in May 2010 and correspondingly, the short-lasting grin of profound wisdom on my countenance.
Now starts the second part of my journey …you know, the ‘becoming a millionaire’ part of it – the obvious first step being – finding a decent job. Even though I was well aware of Beyond Management’s IT services, thanks to one of my senior friends, its at this crucial interstitial that I got acquainted with the inner working of the company when I finally became an employee of Beyond Management. The next 2 months encompassed some elementary training into my specialized field and the application process ( which, trust me, is a full time job in itself! ). Finally after eons of hard work, application / interview /rejection ( eons – exaggeration implied!) I finally landed my first project with Verizon. And here comes the part where I earn come brownie points by thanking our HR team for their diligent effort in helping us out through the entire process and the subsequent bucket-load of paperwork … literally!
So, with dwindling finances and deafening ambitions, I finally waded the waters of the US IT Corporate industry – a fascinating menagerie of bleeding-edge technologies, fresh challenges, new opportunities and frankly, logic-defying politics! 🙂 Currently I am working for a project with CSX for almost a year and will perhaps for the near future. Traversing on the same path, on my third project with Beyond, building a stronger relation with our team by the day and working towards a long-time relation which goes beyond the humdrums of the employee-employer contractual obligations 🙂
