The most treasured part of the management trainee period was the cross domain exposure (sales & finance) I received. I could see the practical implementation of the theory studied and I developed as a professional during that phase. Post that I chose Sales & Marketing out of interest. Sales at Orient Cement has taught me the ground realities in running a business. It has also deepened my domain knowledge of sales & marketing in a commoditized category which is very challenging leading to immense learning. The freedom that I have here to define my work motivates me to perform better every day.
