Sandhip is an exceptionally focused and determined young professional who knows what he wants to achieve. His family has been a big support to him in every decision he has made, and he will forever be thankful for that: “My father motivated and influenced me a lot by constantly encouraging me to believe in myself. This inspired me to make my dream come true by pursuing a degree in the United States.”


After gaining admission to several universities in the U.S., he chose NPU for his Master’s studies due to its ideal location in the Silicon Valley and because of its highly experienced instructors. Sandhip shares his memories: “I have always been advised and guided well by my professors during my studies. Professor Ahmed Banafa supported me during the toughest times. I have always followed the rules and the instructions of my educators. That helped me in achieving my goals and made me the person who I am today.”


Think big and put all your effort into what you want to accomplish.


He was consistent and focused in his job search  as well, taking advantage of LinkedIn, which helped him reach out directly to technical recruiters, That way he became a Technical Support Engineer at Content Guru. He explains, “I chose to apply for Content Guru because the company is an expert in technology. It has its own products and it is internationally recognized. The lengthy hiring process lasted altogether three months. It included two phone interviews, two technical ones, and ended up with three in-person interviews.” All that effort paid off when he got the job.


Sandhip believes that success comes from hard work and determination. He thinks that if you love what you do, and if you aim your full attention towards your goals, you can surely achieve them.


Sandhip says that, in the future, he would like to “continue learning new things, and switch between departments to try different roles.” In addition, he wishes to take on more responsibilities and move into a management position in order to grow as a leader.
