Cover letter

My name is Kunal Deshmukh and I am currently a second year Marketing student at


JBIMS. Since childhood my parents cultivated the passion for excellence in me. I have
had a good academic record throughout my career. Post my HSSC in 2007, I got
admitted to the prestigious Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology, Nagpur
through A.I.E.E.E.. My 4 years in VNIT gave me a very strong technical base and
groomed me overall. In the year 2011 I completed my Electrical engineering from VNIT
and started working in an MNC called Schneider-electric.
Schneider gave me a chance to work in various domains across the length and breadth
of country. I started with working in procurement division for the solar team in
Gurgaon and was later moved to sales team in Bangalore where I was assigned sales
and marketing for building automation division for southern India . Assignments like
handling multiple clients, managing national key accounts, finding new business
clients challenged my limits and honed my skills. Early exposure to leading a team to
reach the set sales target made me more responsible and mature.
Post the techno-commercial practical learnings in Schneider, I decided to pursue my
MBA to learn a more structured approach to decision making. JBIMS gave me a chance
to learn the intricacies of management. My internship stint at General Mills gave me a
platform to apply my theoretical lessons of one year in the FMCG world. Various
competitions and quizzes that I participated developed a sportsman spirit in me.
Apart from this I have a keen interest in business quizzing and maintain a blog by the
name quizquest.wordpress.com. I also play chess and badminton and take interest in
solving puzzles like rubiks cube and Sudoku.
I see myself a perfect fit for the company as my greatest strength is my analytical
skills. My sales job in the past has taught me the importance of being customer
centric. Thus I believe I can live up to the philosophy of the company.
