In an attempt to help students understand the needs and expectations of corporate India from them, the School of Management at Rai University Ahmedabad invited Ms. Mrudangi Trivedi from Zydus Cadila Healthcare Limited on 5th October 2017.
Ms. Mrudangi Trivedi is the logistic officer at Zydus Cadila Healthcare Limited, handling the shipment from the execution to negotiation. She has over 5 years experience in logistic. Ms. Mrudangi Trivedi shared her experience in joining corporate world fresh out of college, the feeling of unpreparedness and awkwardness.

As Ms. Mrudangi stressed, being employed didn’t only mean that one would receive a pay check regularly. What it was also meant was meeting the expectation of the company and delivering the best of oneself.
