I joined Infosys, a seven billion dollar information technology and business consulting enterprise, as a Systems Engineer in 2011 soon after my undergraduate program.
A typical day at work would actually begin with me checking my e-mails to see if there's any task or issue which needs immediate attention followed by a status meet with my Team Leads – more... and Project Manager to check the progress of the project. The specific task for any particular day would be decided upon in the respective status meets.
Having worked under various verticals at Infosys,I had the opportunity to interact with and learn from people with diverse and in-depth skills and expertise. It made me a great team player, I acquired strong analytical and problem solving skills. I learnt the skill of time management, I was consistently recognized by my superiors for my timely completion of projects significantly ahead of stipulated deadlines.My interpersonal skills were enhanced to a great extent, I won accolades from the clients for my strong professional ethics and excellent oral and written interpersonal skills, which they conveyed through an employee feedback survey.
My peers and superiors were extremely motivating and supportive. Even though I was lower down in the hierarchy of my team, I always stood up and took the initiative when the situation demanded and my superiors always acknowledged and lauded my efforts.
The hardest part of being a Test Engineer is that an application tested could fail the QA check even if its extremely minute.
The most enjoyable part is that I got an opportunity to interact and maintain relationships with people from diverse backgrounds. – less
