She is currently working as a Parliamentary Associate to a young Indian parliamentarian, also a renowned industrialist – Mr. Naveen Jindal. Before this she spent two years at McKinsey & Co. in its Delhi, Mumbai & Singapore offices, where she worked across corporate, non-profit and public sector. Overwhelmed by the magnitude of impact and the complexity of issues faced by the Indian government, she left the suave corporate world to work directly with the Member of Parliament. She also founded the Entrepreneurship Development Cell (EDC) at IITD with the vision to foster the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation amongst the students on campus.
Use your best judgment on who you decide to ask - there is no set formula for who should be your recommenders. We know it is not always possible to have a direct supervisor write your recommendation – we would not want you to jeopardize your current position for the application process. Look at the questions we are asking recommenders to complete. Find people who know you well enough to answer them. This can be a former supervisor, a colleague, someone you collaborate on an activity outside of work. How well a person knows you should take priority over level of seniority or HBS alumni status.
A background in financial reporting and servicing Asia-Pacific business clients. The ability to converse fluently in Chinese. An understanding of Chinese, Japanese, and American cultures. I will bring these qualities to the Top School program and ultimately to my career in international investment management. As a first step toward achieving my career goals, I have registered to take level one of the CFA examination in June 201X and plan to complete the entire examination series upon graduation from Top Ten. Armed with the CFA certification and Top School's international bent, strength in finance and management training, I will be ready to place that call to the trader in China, conduct the videoconference with Tokyo, and visit the CFO in Thailand.
