Q 1. Tell us about your experience in the education industry and what makes it the best industry to work in?
Ans. Jobs in the education sector are often demanding but also fulfilling. I strongly feel that my job is concerned with preserving the integrity of the academic institution and maintaining the well-being of the education sector. Though Kota is a small place, with our relentless efforts and tenacious staff, we are able to attract the most competitive pool of students.
The education sector in India is poised to witness major growth in the years to come as India will have world’s largest Tertiary-age population and second largest graduate talent pipeline globally by the end of 2020. Hence, I feel that gaining experience under education sector has led me to gain exposure to a wide variety of perspectives and many different opinions. The education industry has better work life balance where you can rely on a reliable work schedule with stable hours and little over time. The biggest pleasure of working with an Education sector is that you directly impact the future of the nation and have a chance to instill knowledge in large groups of the population. The education sector has seen a host of reforms and improved policies in recent years that could possibly transform the country into a knowledge haven. With human resource increasingly gaining significance in the overall development of the country, development of education infrastructure is expected to remain the key focus in the current decade.
Q 2. What are you doing to ensure your induction of new students is truly world-class at Resonance?
Ans. Our students are excited on their first day to institute. But they come with certain questions and apprehensions in their mind. An effective induction helps our new students to feel welcome and fit in quickly. Our student induction process is often what makes the student experience at the campus. A great induction or on boarding experience helps settle our new students in, and avoid any issues in the future. For this reason, students’ induction is taken quite seriously. We have determined what we can do to maximize the likelihood of a student. It’s quite easy to become so fixated on getting new students up-to-speed but we make sure that we do not forget to encourage them to feel welcome. We introduce them to the staff members and encourage social interaction with them. This fertilizes relaxed and friendly environment.
New students need to feel at home and become as productive as possible in the shortest amount of time. A little effort from management and some planning around their induction process can reap the rewards for everyone, quickly.
Q 3. How do you look at the growth coaching institutes in India?
Ans. For all subjects and streams alike, the standards are high and the desire to excel in academics has led to some cities or towns to become a tuition-hub in India. India is one of the leaders across the world to give academic coaching at an affordable cost. The mentoring industry existing in India has had a record growth of almost 35% in the last five-six years. The private coaching industry in India is one of the fastest growing areas in the service sector. It caters to various sections of students like primary and secondary education, JEE and other engineering entrances, medical entrances, CAT and other management entrances, law etc. Not even the biggest economic recession was able to slow down this industry. The spurring growth of this sector is the result of qualified staff and their methodical teaching pattern. The size of the entrance exam sector is even bigger than the school exam sector. As soon as the class 10th exams get over, students flock the coaching centers to start preparing for competitive examinations. The coaching industry has helped Indian education system becoming increasingly competitive and examination oriented.

Q 6. What message do you have for students pursuing their higher studies under the influence of their peers and society, for example, taking up engineering when you have been interested in some form of art or other streams?
Ans. Peer pressure is the phenomenon wherein we tend to get influenced by the lifestyles and the ways of thinking of our peers. The foremost message to the students who are under the influence of some pressure is not to lose their individuality. Extreme peer pressure may lead you to follow what your peers feel right. Do not join the bandwagon, until you do not feel it be correct. Take subjects which are of your interest and caliber. At the end of the day, your interest and passion will give you happiness. Things you do not enjoy doing cannot fetch you success. You cannot emerge successful in something you have never liked doing. So, it is important that you do not lose happiness of your life by succumbing to peer pressure.
Q 7. What message do you have for students wishing to join Resonance in the near future?

This is the place where if studied properly, will lead to the fulfillment of all your goals.
