Bhubaneswar: Two alumni of Siksha ‘O’ Anusandhan (SOA) have authored books to help graduates navigate through the professional world and find their feet in a highly competitive environment.
‘Corporate Brahmastra’, authored by Arvind Das and published by Aelin Publishers, is a book which encourages students passing out from universities and institutions to be skilled first and move with the times so that they could stand out in a crowd.
Parag Ray, another alumni, has published ‘You- The Career Creator V 2.0’ which points towards a rational path towards building a professional career without any internal conflict and mental bias.
Both the authors have passed out from the Institute of Technical Education and Research (ITER), the faculty of engineering and technology of SOA, about a decade ago. While Shri Das did his B.Tech on Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Shri Ray belonged to Mechanical Engineering discipline.
“My book is specifically designed for the young minds, both college students and working professionals. As a soft skill trainer and motivational speaker, I am on a mission to transform young lives,” Shri Das said.
This book, he said, would be a practical guide to professional excellence containing lots of practical tools and techniques along with his personal experiences. “It contains 21 professional skills for the 21st century,” he said.
The book authored by Shri Ray, who is active in the IT industry as a sales and marketing professional, outlines a five-stage approach for students and professionals to work on their careers.
“The book also chalks out a judicious path for hopefuls to chart their career routes in a structured manner,” Shri Ray said.
Both Shri Das and Shri Ray called on SOA Founder President Prof. (Dr.) Manojranjan Nayak here recently to present him copies of their books. Prof. (Dr.) Nayak congratulated them on their effort and wished them success in their future endeavours.
