“I love my field (Sales). You are your own boss here. All you have to do is work hard and perform”
Rajesh, a graduate from Deoghar district in Jharkhand belongs to a family of 10 members solely dependent on farming and carpentry. With a fascination towards Marketing, he joined a 3 months Sales Management course at DDU-GKY and bagged a job at Eureka Forbes, Ranchi in October 2015 as a Sales Executive at a starting salary of Rs. 8,500 per month. He recently got confirmed, having sold 46 units of Aquaguard since his joining and is now drawing a monthly salary of Rs. 12,000 per month. He is now planning to purchase a motorbike through his organisation for around Rs. 60,000. Every month he keeps Rs. 5,000 for his expenses and sends the rest home. Staying true to his profession, he makes a sales pitch when asked what he plans to buy a Samsung mobile phone only “Jaise Eureka Forbes Aquaguard ka service centre har jagah hota hai, vaise hi Samsung ka service centre centre har jagah milta hai. Toh koi bhi kharabi hogi toh aasani se theek ho jayega. Humare Aquaguard ka service centre har 5 kms pe hai, baaki kissi water purifier ka nahi hai. Sirf kareedne se kuch nahi hota, benefit milna chahiye (Just like Eureka Forbes has their service centre everywhere, Samsung also has the same. Therefore it will be easier to get the phone repaired if required. Our Aquaguard service centre is found every 5 Kms unlike other water purifiers. You should get some benefit from a purchase)”.
