Mahima Jain

I am just 18 years old and I am an LIC Agent Now….

I have also been awarded Star  Performer in the very first month by LIC…

Thanks to Apar India, my teachers, the ever helpful staff of Apar India, the Director Mr. Apar Jain and the Chairman Mr. R. K. Jain for making my dreams of being financially independent come true.

My name is Mahima Jain and I am pursuing B.Voc BFSI – 1st semester from Apar India, Training partner of Tata Institute of Social Sciences SVE.

After I completed my 12th and secured 55%, I was actually confused and wondered what to do, when I chanced upon the course of B.Voc BFSI that was being offered by Apar India in association with Tata Institute of Social Sciences-SVE while surfing the Internet.

I visited Apar India and was told about the unique concept of Work Integrated Training Program, which would ensure that I “Earn While I Learn”.  I found the concept very unique and my parents and I myself felt that I should give it a try. Though let me be honest, I was not sure as to how that was going to be feasible – a shy regular girl like me, Earning….

Anyways, with these apprehensions I started my course, and within a few months my parents and friends noticed changes in me.  These changes were the result of the Communication Skills and Personality Development Classes that were being conducted on a regular basis by Apar India to improve our employability.

At the same time, Apar India’s Placement cell organized Interviews for us with various companies like SBI, Axis Bank, HDFC Bank etc.  Then they organized a Vocational Training Workshop of LIC which was conducted by Mr. Sanjay Bidani, Sr. Development Officer.  During the session, he highlighted the fact that once we decide to make a career in LIC, then sky is the limit, as far as the amount of money, that could be earned, is concerned.  I liked the idea that I could decide my work timings and also the amount I wish to earn per month.

I joined the training conducted by Mr. Sanjay Bidani organized by Apar India.  Though I found it difficult initially to complete the tasks given in the beginning, slowly I started to get a hang of it.  I decided to appear for the examination conducted by LIC for being a Financial Advisor and cleared the same in the first go.  Afterwards, my happiness knew no boundary when I came to know that I was going to get an award for being the  Star Performer by LIC as I had managed to get 4 policies in the very first month of my work as Financial Advisor. I have even got my first cheque for the commission that I have earned in my first month.

Today, my family members and relatives are very proud of me and I feel elated that my career has already kick-started and have already started earning while my classmates studying in DU and IP are doing nothing productive except for attending their colleges.
