Aakriti Bhargava - Case Study

Aakriti Bhargava
Vice President Talent Management

Aakriti is 21 years old, studying in Symbiosis Institute of Management Studies (undergraduate), Pune, a student just like you.

This is her story.

I was a student of Business Administration when I decided to apply to AIESEC, an organization I had heard about but didn’t really know what was in it for me. AIESEC changed my life as it was more that what I ever imagined. 
I started my journey in AIESEC as a member of the Corporate Social Responsibility team in the Corporate Sector. After gaining a lot of knowledge of the corporate sector, I became team leader of the CSR project. I also initiated a project on Emerging Markets. That was my first real leadership experience where I gained skills, learnt to accept failure and work as a team. 
I then moved to the development sector for a more diverse experience in AIESEC. I was made team leader of the Children Issues project. I went on the lead the Development and Education Sector of AIESEC Pune for the year 2009. Today, I am handling the portfolio of Talent Management for my local committee.
AIESEC has helped me change as an individual. I am a more confident person today through my interactions with Corporates, NGOs and educational institutes. I have learned the importance of professionalism, punctuality and integrity. I am passionate, driven and focused and have learned to recognize my strengths and weaknesses. After working on various social issues, I have become more sensitive and believe that my actions can make a difference. 
Through my experience in AIESEC, I learned to relate my theoretical knowledge to practical application and have had first hand experience in marketing, HR and event management. I have also met people from diverse cultures and have made friends all over the world through the AIESEC network.
