“I do not want to get sucked into job placement straitjacket and would rather take the risk of setting up my own venture. I really want to serve my own country, specially Bihar, the state to which I belong,” a confident Jaya told TOI on Thursday.
Though the 22-year-old effervescent Jaya has taken a job with a comparatively new Readlink Technology Pvt Ltd in Banglore but she does not intend to stick to it for long. She sees it as her springboard.
We also know that IIM-B chairman (placements) Y L R Moorthi has stepped down from the post, a year before his term would have ended due some apprehended controversy regarding two students of Class of 2006 — Gaurav Agarwal and Venkatesh Shankararaman, who bagged the highest salary offer this year — shot off an email to Apte, expressing anguish over their salaries being made public. They said their compensation details were publicised without consulting them.
Jaya’s move is not the first of its kind which MBA students opt for, but the most amazing thing is that a girl from Bihar has taken a commendable lead in initiating a new career move which I’m sure will inspire many others in the days to come.
Folks, the move is all the more appreciable because it’s a different matter that we all aspire to do something and create a better Bihar, but she has refused lucrative offer and is committed to serve the state.
I have spoken to Atul, Gautam, Neeraj and many folks in our group who nourish similar ambitions but we all have personal aspirations, career goals, family, social commitments and sometimes we even use this as an alibi for the status quo.
I guess that’s one of the reasons why we can appreciate better that it’s indeed a brave move on part of Jaya.It’s not easy to refuse such lucrative offers when you have made it to a place like IIMs and have toiled for years and competed with lakhs of others to find a place.
Cool Bihari would like to wish her the very best in her future endeavor ,and we sincerely hopes that she inspires million other Jaya’s in our state and country who put there foot ahead for a such inspiring endeavours .
