My passion for
mathematics and physics led to my decision to study engineering. I qualified
IIT-JEE (considered the toughest engineering entrance exam in the world)
and was among top 2% of the candidates who appeared for the exam. This helped me get admission in the undergraduate program at Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Kharagpur.  During this program,
I studied calculus courses and developed an interest in programming, working on
various projects that included development of an algorithm
to optimize structures using quadrilateral elements, of fuzzy logic based
software to monitor construction progress on a site, of image filters and of an
animated film showing vibrations of various structures. These projects involved
mathematical analysis, numerical solutions to differential equations, animation
and data handling using computer programs.

Post B. Tech I
joined PwC (Pricewaterhouse Coopers) as an ERP consultant. As a part of my job
I am responsible for understanding the business process of the client,
configuring the system to track and record the business data (all kinds of data
that relates to inventory, sales, purchase, financial, and production),
developing custom programs to generate reports using the data, resolving errors
in the configuration and programs and training the client staff. I have worked
across a wide range of industries including manufacturing, retail, pesticide,
oil, pharmaceutical, air conditioning, coffee etc.

custom programs I have generated various reports: financial statements (Balance
Sheet, Profit and Loss Report, Cash Flow Statement) Asset Valuation Reports, Cost
of Goods Manufactured, Cost of Goods Sold, market segment wise profitability
report, region wise profitability report, budgeting and planning . Also I have taken
part in the analysis of these reports by calculating the various ratios such as
Earnings per Share (EPS), Price-to-Earnings Ratio (P/E), Price/Earnings to
Growth Ratio (PEG), Net Profit Margin, Return on Assets (ROA) and Return on
Equity (ROE).

With my
engineering background and work experience I am ready for the next step in my
career. In short term I would like to pursue the role of financial adviser in a
