Seven Years and still counting!!!!!

Today “May 13”its been 7 years since I have started working…. To confess looking back still do not make me realize that its been such a long time span that I have finished my college days and been working for the same organization “Kanbay ” (currently know as CapGemini) its my maiden job and am still going strong on this one….

I would like to state how it all started, April 2002 we had finishes exams of Final year of Graduation (along which we were also doing a Computer course – 2 year) we were having our usual “BHEL” at our joined when one of our friend happen to mention that a company “Kanbay” is looking out for computer engineer for 2-3 months project, we 3 (Akshay, Vikraam & I) thought why to waste the 2 months (period when we were awaiting our result) lets earn some money and have some first hand experience in working in a IT industry…. So next day we showed up for interview we had a large company of people showing up 35+, and the end 8 were selected and joined in the following weeks…

We were still continuing our college life… and having nice time and by the end of 2 months we all were ready to leave when our Manager “Mayuresh” let go 4 of them and asked 4 to stay back ( we three & Val)… and that was the day we have completed 7 years in Kanbay (Vikram happen to leave and pursue in another company) where as we 3 are still holding our horses and working in different project and still going on!!!!

Looking back I still can still say that that we decided what we had to do on a BHEL

The year 2002 was not a nice year to start any one courier as we had just starting out for the DOT com bubble which made sure that many batches of our senior left the campus without any offer letter… and looking at today condition thanks to the Financial Crises which has gripped from last year and half… many have lost jod and we will see many fresh graduates would be leaving campus with no offer letter… this seams more like a 7 year life circle…

I wish we do see next 7 flourishing years of jobs for all….
