I am Dirghayu Kaushik, a rising senior engineering undergraduate at the Indian Institute of Technology (BHU), Varanasi. I believe my entrepreneurial background and experience with the AI/ML projects and startups make me an ideal candidate for this position.
As a student, I have been extensively involved in my college festivals and overall community, which has allowed me to develop strong interpersonal skills. Also, I have a strong inclination for Product Management and Data Science. In terms of technical capabilities, I have experience of working with Relational Databases, Python, SQL along with Machine Learning Algorithms. Apart from that, I have sound business acumen and love brainstorming with startup ideas and business case studies.
I, along with my peers, started the Entrepreneurship-Cell in my institute. Currently, I am the Associate Vice President of the Entrepreneurship-Cell, IIT BHU. I led the foundation of the Institute Innovation Council, and worked closely with startups and helped them in the ideation phase and in scaling up. During the period, I worked on introducing new policies and encouraging students to work on their startup ideas. Also, looked after newer collaborations with different organisations, incubators & accelerators.
Besides Academia, I am currently interning as a Data Analyst at kaamwork, an innovative job portal enabling work from everywhere. I also interned at a technology accelerator, where I worked with the team to scout and analyse startups that can be funded for the firm's portfolio. I also reported the growth and scope of current portfolio startups. Also, I was able to chalk out the strategy of their then-new corporate innovation initiative, which successfully turned into a successful joint-venture.
I firmly believe that with my Problem-Solving skills, relevant coursework, and professional experience, I'll surely strive to play my part as a valuable asset with full synergy. I'm hoping you would consider me for an Internship, as it will help me get better exposure to the industry.
I am motivated by Helping Others and Influence, I work in Deliberate and Decisive ways, and my ideal work allows forStructure and New Solutions
Matching personal values to the work and to the mission of the organization are critical connections. Keeping promises and holding to high ethical standards can help to keep feelings in line with reality.
Continuous improvement is important for maximizing potential. Situations that involve interactions with experts and mentors, in addition to more traditional learning experiences, can feed the drive to develop both personally and professionally.
Responsibility is earned through trusting relationships and increasing competence. Technical skills are not enough; acting with integrity, high standards and following through are often just as important.
