If not for him, Merchant of Venice would not have the very effect that it has in our minds now. John Milton’s grief made me wonder about life and our purpose in this mortal world. Robert Frost inspired me to be myself, and to take decisions that make me happy. These small readings during my school days imparted a lifetime of wisdom.
Life moves on. School and college days flew away and here I am now, a working professional in the ever-growing IT hub of the Asian sub-continent. Working as a Senior Server Operations Specialist meant long and irregular hours, and less time for hobbies. Work taught me new things every day and that kept me going. However, there were so many other activities that took a back-seat. After two and half years of hard work, I got, what I believe to be, my dream job.
Who does not like to do what their heart loves the most, while getting paid for doing so!! Here I am, a Content Analyst working with one of the most reputable organizations ever-known. Working as a Content Analyst needs me to be tech-savvy. It demands concentration and an eye for accuracy. And it provides me with a chance to learn and grow as an individual. Most importantly, it gives me a chance to do what I am good at- read and write. I guess in today’s fast paced and demanding corporate environment, it is a blessing to be having fun at work and doing what one loves doing the most.
My steady work life leaves ample time for me to pursue my other hobbies. When am not creating trainings and reading through technical documents, I love beating my friends at chess, scrabble and UNO. Recently I have started learning guitar and I must admit am bowled over with the vast possibilities that music has to offer.
In short, life is smooth and happening when you are enjoying your work.
Area Covered: A brief summary about myself, my work, past successes, interests, and abilities.
Work Experience Summary: I am presently working as a Content Analyst, with Microsoft India. I work in the Quality Assurance team, and take care of the technical trainings and online courses developed for the internal employees. I also take care of the partner-ready courses and certifications. My job requires me to be open to new technologies, and have the zeal to try out and understand my organization's latest innovations. I often get to try my hands on yet to be released applications and software. That provides a challenge, as tough deadlines and absence of help documents leave me and my team on the edge of our sanity at times. But the very thrill of getting a chance to understand new technologies, and designing technical help guides and trainings from scratch keeps me going. I believe the best way to write is by being simple and to the point. Big words and long sentences convey less.
Before joining Microsoft, I was working as a Server Operations Specialist with IBM India. The time spent with IBM will always be special for me and the experience gained in that stretch of time has helped me immensely in realizing my potential and capabilities.
Education Summary: I am a Chemistry graduate and hold a diploma in Technical Writing. In addition, I have completed MBA from Symbiosis University, India.
