The TechBee experience was not merely about acquiring technical knowledge; it was a holistic approach to professional development. Our trainers emphasized Soft skills, teamwork, and adaptability, creating a well-rounded foundation for the challenges ahead.

From Intern to Software Engineer: A Steady Ascent:
Following the initial six months of CRT, the transition to an internship marked a hands-on experience that bridged the gap between theory and real-world application. Working on practical projects allowed me to witness the nuances of software development, fostering a deeper understanding of the industry’s dynamics.

After a year of dedicated efforts, I achieved a significant milestone – the title of Software Engineer. While this marks my entry as a professional in the workplace as a full-time employee, it’s the beginning of my long journey where I want to rise to the top of the world.

The journey didn’t end there. HCLTech’s commitment to employee development provided me with a unique opportunity – the chance to pursue a bachelor’s degree at BITS Pilani. Juggling work responsibilities and academic pursuits at one of India’s most prestigious institutes became a balancing act that further enriched my learning experience.
The academic environment at BITS Pilani complemented my professional growth. Engaging with diverse perspectives, collaborating on research projects, and being part of a vibrant campus community added layers to my skill set beyond the technical realm.

Notable among them is the successful completion of impactful projects that contributed to the company’s success. Whether streamlining processes or implementing innovative solutions, each project presented an opportunity for growth and recognition.

Additionally, participation in collaborative teams and continuous upskilling through internal training programs played a pivotal role in expanding my skill set. The vibrant work culture at HCLTech, marked by mentorship and knowledge sharing, fostered an environment where learning was encouraged and celebrated.
