BCA Alumni Success Story

Failure is not the alternative to success. It’s something to be avoided, but it’s also only a temporary setback on a bigger, more significant course. Everybody encounters failure at one point or another. What truly matters is how you react to and learn from that failure.

That’s how this quote depicts my voyage to Deloitte. It all started from class X. It was a kind of failure to me then, getting horrendous grades was bizarre. I was devastated. Then the dilemma to choose the right career path flashed the very idea of changing stream that gave me a kick-off start. Took commerce in class XI, comprehending business and my efficiency with numbers added to my confidence which provoked me to opt commerce. Yet, the very confusion did not succumb and hence followed me till I finally decided to do BCA from Chandigarh University.

The passion for computers made me to hop from numbers to systems. I did not follow the conventional career path, say, doing, BBA, CA as I was a commerce guy in +2. My love for computers took off when I did certain certifications in languages like C and C++ before even entering college. I got enrolled in Chandigarh University and there I started learning new technologies. I attended several workshops conducted by University Institute of Computing (UIC) of CU. Some include Cyber Security, Android, Cloud computing and many more. My curiosity for cybersecurity made me get intensive training in this domain. Became (Certified Information Security Expert) C.I.S.E. To achieve this, I had to undergo a very hectic schedule, like post-college I used to attend evening training sessions (for about 6-7 months). Besides studying, I was a proactive student involved in various events like coordinated various Hackathons, organized lot of events. Highly supportive faculty of CU motivated me to try things out of the box. They were very helpful during my final year projects.

Then the most awaited period of my 3-year degree came when the placement season started. DELOITTE was the first one. I got it in one go. Bingo! Hence, the entire Chandigarh University journey helped to frame my personality and holds biggest credits to make me who I am today and still holding on to it.
