Corporate Mentoring Programme

Corporate Mentors

We believe in holistic development of every student that decides to build their future with us. It thus becomes our constant endeavour to create an eco-system for students to interact with industry stalwarts on a frequent basis. For this, we’ve instituted the Corporate Mentoring Programme. All mentors are highly committed, experienced and accomplished professionals. On joining NDIM, each student is assigned to an industry Mentor, who acts as their guide, coach and counsellor. Mentors groom students according to industry specific expectations and provide hands-on learning of corporate culture and new-age skills through regular interaction. They take active interest in developing the student’s functional, personality and professional competencies to nurture them for leadership roles.

He started off with the skills a recruiter looks for in a candidate and discussed some obvious questions a recruiter might ask and how to tackle such questions. He asked us to communicate the truth about ourselves to the recruiter and not falsify even if it ends up in not getting a job. This is beneficial in the long run for both the organization as well as for ourselves not to deceive each other. He also enlightened us regarding the mistakes a candidate does when it comes to handling stresses, as well as technical questions in interviews. Mr. Inbarajan told that Indians are very aspirational and we must keep ourselves going forward always. He has asked us to work on our “elevator pitch” which is a short description of a product, organization or an individual that explains the concept in such a way that any listener can understand it in a short span of time. The main intent is to create a demand for the product or an individual and making a mark on the other person. The pitch should be interesting and memorable.

During our meeting with our mentor Mr. Thawani, he gave his brief introduction about his educational qualifcations and job experiences. He told us that to succeed in life we should always take help of others and even help others to achieve their goal. He shared two theories about how to live life : one was relating to the wheel. He told us that the invention of wheel was one of the greatest invention as wheel teaches us to move forward in life with the help of others and the second theory was about the rock that breaks from the mountain and falls in the Gangotri river. The journey of some rock ends very soon whereas some rock floats far away in the end they are worshiped by people in the name of God. So from the theory we learnt that one should not give up in their life at any moment and should perform each and every work with more energy and enthusiasm. He asked us to write down daily task in a diary and complete it within the same day and not extend it to next day as this will help us to save time to do other work.
