Each woman nominated for a feature interview answers a few short questions about IBM and her career. Here’s what Radha has to say about working at IBM.
What made you decide to work for IBM?
I have heard from my college days that IBM is a great place to work. My goal was to work for IBM. I got my placement in IBM when I was in my Third year of Engineering through campus recruitment and finally I got into my dream company.
Can you describe an interesting project?
Currently I am working on developing a mobile application for an upcoming model of cars. The project is very interesting and I am very much excited to see people using my app in future.
Has IBM opened the doors to any new experiences for you?
I came through an opportunity where I had to work on developing a mobile application. My exposure to multiple projects [for this client] was a value addition to my profile and sculpted me as a top employee.
What advice would you give to our new IBMers?
IBM is a great place to work. Don’t take the opportunity of working with IBM as the one you are giving to the company, rather consider it as the opportunity IBM gave you to grow as a successful person.
Do you have a special IBM story that you’d like to share?
IBM is a part of my life. When I delivered a baby, I had no support at home as i was alone in Bangalore. I worked from home for almost 18 months when my son reached the play group age. Wondering how time passed away and my son is in his schooling. I am a proud woman since I never depended on any one for their help. IBM is such a great place to work and I have decided not to leave IBM till the age of retirement.
