Delve into the journey of how an average student bagged the opportunity to pursue his industrial training from JP morgan chase...

  • I was mostly an average student when it came to academics.
  • I was the most active in sports activities, this taught me the foundation of “never giving up”.
  • I am currently doing my CA industrial training at JP Morgan Chase.

Hey there! I am Sharath Kumar.

I am a CA student preparing for my CA finals. Currently, I am pursuing my CA industrial training from JP Morgan Chase.

To be honest, I have mostly been an average student when it comes to academics but I have always been very active in sports and activities.

I believe it was due to my involvement in sports and activities that I achieved the kind of mindset I needed to push myself further ahead. 

Till grade 10th, I didn't really have any goals. Subsequently, I opted for commerce in 11th standard and then went on to pursue my CA course.

It was a tough journey that I had undertaken. I realized that after failing a lot of my initial attempts at the CA exams. However, I stood my ground and kept striving hard.

Coming from an averagely academic orientation, most of my friends had left the CA course, but I persisted. My sports mindset helped me a lot in my CA IPCC exams. I gave every ounce of hard work I had to that exam.

I did clear my CA IPCC eventually.

The journey was tough for me as I believe it is, for all the students that prepare for this exam.

I also hadn't really planned out much nor had I any guidance of any kind related to the journey I had undertaken.

It was in the first year of my articleship that I decided to pursue CA industrial training. And I really wanted to pursue it from a reputed firm.

The problem here was that I felt that I wasn't skilled enough to pursue industrial training yet.

It was then that I came across job assistance services.

I came in contact with Jobaaj to seek guidance regarding how to crack CA industrial training at a good company.

I was then provided some one-to-one guidance and also given some course materials to upskill myself in finance technologies using Python.

It was enough to provide me the impetus I needed to crack my goals as well as upgrade my existing skills and give me some insight into the corporate world.

This also allowed me to build a powerful resume for myself.

Subsequently, I had managed to pursue CA industrial training at JP Morgan Chase!

It was in literal terms, a dream come true!

I am happy to have added this extra bonus to my resume and I am more than fulfilled to have gotten such a powerful opportunity.
