Journey of an Avg. Graduate – E-Commerce executive to Operations Head!!- Priyanka Agarwal
Hailing from a middle class Marwari Family, I never imagined myself to be a part of the Corporate World. As soon as the celebrations of my 21st Birthday began, I could feel a steep turn coming my way. Academics and achievements had suddenly taken the back seat and discussions on finding the most suitable groom on Mother Earth was my Relatives new goal, which they had to achieve before the clock would strike 23.
When nothing goes right..go left !!
After struggling for a year, I finally convinced my parents to allow me explore my own calibre. Soon, I landed up in a Manufacturing unit, which had started its E- Commerce wing and was looking for young talents in its team. And the Journey had begun!! Working there in a team of 4 as a marketplace executive and achieving the designation of a Manager brought immense confidence and also changed the way I looked upon at life. A new ray of hope had enlightened my soul, until one day out of nowhere I was all decked up to meet a guy, whom now I am married to. But as they say, good things happen when you least expect them..My man had already set my path and whole heartedly welcomed me to the corporate world.
Today, at the age of 25 and after becoming the Operations Head of One of the most Successful 5 year old Start-ups’, “SMVA CONSULTANTS”, an HR Consultancy serving people on Pan India front and achieved a clientele of 500+ corporates, when I look back at the 21 year old girl who was clueless, all I can say is When the awareness of what is achievable brushes your life, your journey has begun!
