Dilip Sengupta

This is a brief article which explains the change in environment one can normally expect while starting his/her career after leaving the academic environment. While adoption to the new situation is a built-in process of any organisation, a little bit of preparation is always helpful particularly because, for a young mind such change is too fast and too much to cope up with. What are those changes, FAQ’s which are very common irrespective of the past academic field or future organizational structure? And what are those ‘learnings’ that may have to be ‘unlearned’ for a smooth and bump-less transfer? The first thing that may pose a challenge is a sudden in-flux of ‘new things that was all unknown so far’.This is not only with respect to the new life or new culture but even in the area of domain knowledge. The first reaction may be – ‘probably I should have been more serious in my studies’ or ‘I don’t think it was included in our syllabus’ etc. Firstly stop thinking or reacting on these lines. While a better academic background is always helpful, that is not a guarantee for a successful career in the long run. In most of the cases academic short fall can be well compensated in the job market only if one can select / find the ‘right path’.
