Turning Points …
Entry and moving from one organization to another in quest of better career has been a magic thing in my life. Sometime when I look back where I started and how I migrated for best things to happen, it is always amazing to recollect the turning points in my career.
Maiden Job As Accounts Assistant: After competition of graduation I increased my attempts to search for job opportunities as my friends started joining employment. Ultimately with my father recommendations, I got into a job with title Accounts Assistant to work in Accounts Department of an Electronic manufacturing Company with Japanese collaboration in its administrative office in Hyderabad and later transferred to its manufacturing facility at Patancheruvu about 25 Kilometers from Hyderabad all through with a salary of Rupees Two Hundred Fifty per month + getting a matching amount from parents to get on with minimum living expenses.
Takeaways: ♦Having knowledge about my experiences in Media, the Company management entrusted me to co-ordinate with and take care of Media persons who were invited to cover the inaugural function of the Company manufacturing facilities which was graced by Shri Marri Chenna Reddy, the then Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh as its Chief Guest. A wide coverage on print media and All India Radio was given to this function and this newly set up industry. ♦In addition to picking up Accounting knowledge, I was delighted, when my employer used my skill for two years working in this Company in the areas of my interest where I could prove my mettle in Public Relations with media as well as with the Japanese Technicians and their language interpreters.
Next Best Job As Commercial Executive: I switched over to an Electric conductors manufacturing unit in Balanagar Industrial Estate in Hyderabad with a condition to tour for followup with customers for collection of bills. Though salary was slight higher than earlier employment + tour incentives, I continued to depend on matching amount from my parents to get on with cost of living. After few months of my settling in this organization, management transferred me to its unit under construction in Virudachalam Industrial town in Tamilnadu State for liaison with various authorities to set up full fledged manufacturing of Electric conductors with ceramic at cheaper cost.
Takeaways: ♦ Learnt working with out working knowledge of Tamil Language. ♦ Living in unbearable conditions in the factory construction on outskirts of the town ♦My living conditions like this for about 6 months in this place, generated a keenness in me to resume pursuing Company Secretaryship professional course which was neglected by me in a quest to get into some job or other. ♦ After I narrated about my job-hardships, living conditions and insufficient pay, my father advised me to resign and come back to Home town Vijayawada, with a condition that I must concentrate on study till professional qualification is acquired, for which I agreed and resigned this job and headed towards new mission.
