This is How it Began

Hi, I’m Sukhmani Kaur from Amritsar, Punjab. At the beginning, lets know little about me, I am Commerce graduate from CKD Institute of management and technology. I’m very honest and wishing person and can easily mingle with everyone. My hobbies include listening music, cooking, reading etc. Me in a nutshell: Sharing my knowledge and experiences with others is the one of the best activities that I love to do. 

Internship is a period of work offered by an organization to any student. Most of the students have no or little knowledge about internship, in abroad it is important to get the internship training before doing the job. So I wish to write a blog series that can help people who want to know more about internship.  This is my struggle and adventure, which I am going to share with you.

Being a Commerce graduate, the Internship is my first appearance in the corporate world. My greatest opportunity as an intern is with NSPL  IT Company and I am working  as Software Testing Intern  for 6 months and I would say, I am blessed enough to be an important part of the corporate team.

I am going to begin the story from start. Just like every student, I also had grand dreams of having a good career in life. However, it didn’t take very long for reality to hit me that becoming a lawyer was not in my destiny. I attempted twice but wasn’t able to acquire a seat in the university. It became extremely difficult for me at one point.

After that, I got married with an ambitious man who always motivated me to make a difference or dress a great profession in life. Being far away from him in a long-distance relationship, he still boosted me to pursue my career.  My Husband works in­­ Department of Justice in California, USA as Quality analyst.

He told me that he also wanted to become a Doctor but he didn’t qualify the entrance exam to get the seat in the college. After that he decided to change his stream to health care information systems. In this field, he realized that he is highly qualified and skilled as a Quality analyst. Presently, He has a flourishing profession because of his choice to acquire experience in Testing.

However, in my case we both realized that I have lost 3 years of my career. Then my husband suggested me to take some interest in IT field. I asked him, how can this be possible? I have no experience in IT. He said that he had faith in me and said… “YOU CAN DO IT”.

Although I don’t have any interest in institutional training, still I encouraged myself personally for preparing something extraordinary in the future. I honestly don’t know how I can build a great profession in this field? What is the scope of this career in today’s time period? What are the components of IT field? Is IT only related to a desk job?

Alright everyone I’ll be leaving for the day it’s time to play with my dog. I’ll see you in my next blog post. Till then please provide your valuable feedback in the comments section below. Thank you.
