Knowledge Requires Platform, Not Background

Partho Mukherjee - Intern at The Financial Doctors

Partho Mukherjee

Being from an Engineering Background Finance was a complete alien field for me. I never really had an interest in Finance since the beginning. It was during my Sixth Semester when I started taking few of the Finance courses just to fill my Elective Slots. The attempt was to get something that could improve my resume somewhat an attempt to keep the fox off the door. However this was the time when I started developing interest towards the field. Lectures were interesting and helped me a lot in developing the basics in Finance and Risk Management. However I didn’t find this enough and started taking online courses on platforms like edX and Coursera etc. Though the theory was good but I could find no practical sessions , so I decided to join an internship in Core Finance to get a flavour weather this field is meant for me or not. This was the time when I came to know about Financial Doctors. After the selection I was really excited for the internship as I had heard some very cool experiences about the internship by some of the seniors. Since the joining I always had a fear of staying behind since most of the interns with me were from Commerce, Business and Finance background so I thought the sessions would be quite above my knowledge level. But to my surprise the sessions were simple, lucid and interactive. Frankly speaking these were the best lectures I ever attended where theory was 20%-30% and practical plus interaction was around 80%. Vishwa Sir explained each and every concept from the scratch and because of which I never felt the disadvantage of not being from a Finance background. The internship till now has provided a unique learning experience which has extended my interest in the field and I wish to make a career in the same. The internship provides ample opportunities for individuals to explore, experiment and innovate on their own. The driving factor behind working enthusiastically in the internship is the continuous feedback from the mentor and lively discussions with the colleagues. At the end I would say that Financial Doctor is not just an internship but a platform to explore, to innovate and to be creative. Now Why Am I Here? Well, I am here to learn and to be creative which the internship teaches you very well. Though hard work and dedication part is kept to you but for the rest ample of opportunities are provided. After the internship I wish to work on the futures market and analyse the trends in a different way that the ones currently employed. My goal in life is to achieve a position of great responsibility in a leading Financial company wherein I get to bring out the best of me by contributing meaningfully to lead the organization to new heights. In the end I would say that the internship is helping me a lot in developing critical skills including analysis, interpretation and ability to think outside the box as well skills which one needs to survive in the corporate world.
