The Idea Of Waiting For Something Makes it More Fascinating

Munmun Manna, our Ex Students shares the surprise that she received at the workplace today!

Hello everyone. I, Munmun Manna want to share the surprise, which I received today, with all of you.

Last year, on 18th June, I joined the best institute of India i.e. Arena Animation Park Street for the GWDD (Graphics, Web Designing & Development) course. There I have got the BEST guru of my life i.e. our Respected Somnath Sir. My family, Sir and my friends have always inspired me a lot. Earlier, I had a very negative kind of approach, but today I am totally a different person.

On 10th June, 2015 (a little less than a year after I joined APS), I was appointed as a Web Designer & Front-end Developer at Innovitas IT Services.

For students, having a job is a way of making money, just a way of having extra cash for movies or clothes.  It makes one feel independent. Personally, it made me feel sort of like an adult. It taught me how to be responsible and to handle my finances. I had to learn how to interact with my co-workers, work with different types of people, how to handle the clients, and also learn punctuality. In a way, it was almost like I had learned real life skills in under 6 months. It will always be a big part of me maturing and becoming a young adult.

Today I was very tensed since morning. I remember walking in nervously and taking a seat. I glanced around and saw my expression was mirrored in my co-workers’ faces. Our supervisor welcomed me warmly and even gave out snacks. Then I got the biggest surprise when Sir told me that from now onwards I will be the team-leader of our company. Sir clearly explained what they expected and walked us through the steps. I remember leaving with a smile on a face, happy that I landed my dream job.

All in all, my job has taught me many beneficial things. To always have an open mind and be willing to work in any type of work environment. To be willing to adapt to fit in a new work place; and to always be respectful and kind to not only my future supervisors, but my co-workers as well. What I have learned in the span of less than six months will always be a big part of me growing up. I’m looking forward to taking what I’ve learned and applying it. I really don’t know where I would be if I didn’t take this job opportunity because without it, I would have never learned what I have.

Tasting The Flavour Of Success vide Graphics & Web Designing

Our Ex Student Bhagyashree Deb shares her success story:

Initially I was not aware of web designing and developing. Never had I any thoughts about the subject. How it works? what it takes to became a web professional?

I was in my final year, when I decided to take up web as profession. Since I was unaware of the entire industry. I decided to visit Arena Animation Park Street (APS) with my parents, to get information about the subject and various career opportunities that are attached with this industry.

After getting all the information, I was convinced that I can make a better career in this industry. Finally, I got myself admitted in APS. I had joined GWDD course and I was determined to get the best job as per my capability as soon as possible. I wanted to stand on my own feet so that I could help my parents and bring joy to them. In addition, I wanted to be independent and self-sustained.

For entire one year, I only had one target and that was to learn and update myself as much as possible. I wanted to be the best among all. To start with, I was very tense regarding the class, as the entire subject was new to me. At some point, I even lost my way and got demotivated. However, our respected sir guided me and motivated me all the time. Thanks to him, I got my way back and slowly started building up the momentum for the course. Thanks to him, I was filled with confidence, that yes I can also do it.

Today I have a job am doing very well in my career. To be successful, all it took was hard work, seriousness toward the subject and great effort. Since this entire industry is ever changing, one needs to be kept updated all the time. Yes, Sir will be there, however we have to stand on our own feet to really taste the flavor of success.

At Present My Designation is UI Developer.
