Thanks to my hard work, determination and the training that I received at ICICI Academy, it seems that life has just begun for me and my family. My dreams are finally finding wings.
From a struggle for subsistence to a lucrative career abroad
I was born and brought up in the city of dreams – Mumbai. But, I did not have the luxury to dream. My father drove a rented auto-rickshaw and his income was not enough to sustain our family. With a great deal of difficulty, I managed to complete my education till Standard 12. Then I started looking for a job.
By a sheer stroke of good luck, I met an NGO which advised me to join ICICI Academy for Skills. When I visited the Academy’s centre in Mumbai, I realised that the training would provide me with a chance of developing real skills. Much to my relief, all courses offered at the Academy were free. I enrolled for the ‘Office Administration’ programme which turned out to be a life-changing experience. The curriculum was comprehensive and armed me with critical skills that I needed to succeed at my future workplaces. I learnt everything from grooming and etiquette to customer service and selling skills. Post completion of my course, I landed up with a job at a large private bank, thanks to ICICI Academy’s placement initiatives.
I have not looked back since then. I changed jobs and moved to a leading jewellery company. With my incentives, I bought an auto-rickshaw for my father. His pride and joy knew no bounds. I now work with a reputed jewellery chain in Oman in a challenging role. Thanks to my hard work, determination and the training that I received at ICICI Academy, it seems that life has just begun for me and my family. My dreams are finally finding wings.
