Zabardasti and Virtually Tagged myself :)

Finally the exam is over and I am a free man. Last couple of weeks have been hectic, lot of work in office and also we had an in class exam in school for managerial accounting. That was too much, so had to study for it. Our professor is just amazing. You should read this article about him(C J Skender).

So today I was reading Sayesha’s blog and she wrote about Zabardasti ka tag where everyone wants to get tagged. So I took it to next level I have virtually assumed that Sayesha’s has tagged me and am going to write about it.:) Hehehehehehe

4 Jobs that I have had (before my current one):

  • Program Assistant in NIIT. The title is fancy it actually meant lab assistant to help students at NIIT with there programming queries. 🙂
  • Software Engineer at Baan. This was my first real job. Was great learning experience and got to travel a lot around the world. Especially to NL and US.
  • EAI Designer (Technical Advisor) at Nortel Networks. This was my first job in US. Nortel was a great company and I had great colleagues. Just a fun place to be. JJJ
  • Senior Solutions Architect at e-Emphasys in India and US. I was the second employee at eET. I have seen this company grow from Milind’s bedroom to office across the globe in Japan, US and India. From 2-3 people to almost more than 100 people. Biggest advantage of working for a small company is the amount of responsibilities you get.

  • RTP, USA. I have lived in Raleigh area for last 5 years now. This is a great place to live. Great weather, 3 best schools in the country, Greenery everywhere, 4 hours drive to mountains and 4 hours to ocean or 4 hours to DC. So a great place to live.
