Meet the person who had gotten all the spotlight at every social gathering, when he got into IIT Delhi, 𝐌𝐚𝐲𝐚𝐧𝐤 𝐊𝐮𝐦𝐚𝐫 𝐒𝐚𝐡𝐮- Program Marketing Manager at upGrad and an employee who gets highly confidential emails, as his name is similar to our Co-founder & MD, Mayank Kumar.
Ideally, Mayank likes beginning his workday at 10 AM but, “𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘧𝘧𝘪𝘤 𝘪𝘴 𝘢 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘪𝘯 𝘔𝘶𝘮𝘣𝘢𝘪 𝘰𝘬𝘢𝘺!’ – in his own words. So 11 AM it is now!
2 espresso shots followed by meetings, campaign optimisation and future-proofing potential issues is what his day looks like from a bird’s eye view. But from the ground reality, it’s all about him trying to get things done, saving things from falling apart, ordering lunch, thinking about what snacks to have in the evening, what to have for dinner and rethinking his life choices every 60 minutes.(𝘸𝘦 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘬𝘪𝘥𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘭𝘢𝘴𝘵 𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘵. 𝘖𝘳 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘸𝘦?) On weekends though, Mayank will either be found in Pune, chilling with his friends or is busy exploring places to eat, drink, chill and live a wanderer's life.
As we can see, he is huge on travelling, Yes! But only when it’s sponsored. In his words - “𝘴𝘱𝘰𝘯𝘴𝘰𝘳𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘳𝘪𝘱𝘴 𝘬𝘢 𝘢𝘭𝘢𝘨 𝘩𝘪 𝘧𝘦𝘦𝘭 𝘩𝘢𝘪”. Whenever there is less work in his plate, there are 2 things he does:
1. Walks up to people and tries really hard to convince them, that he’s here to have some serious conversations but fails miserably!
2. Keeps humming old media advertisements.
Keeping all this aside, when it comes to working diligently, he pulls it off really well, his day at work just doesn’t end until and unless he has done something that is better than yesterday. And that, we believe, is a very practical way of evaluating ourselves at work.
Team upGrad loves you Mayank Kumar Sahu ❤️ and we will try and make sure that you don’t get confidential mails and end up knowing top secrets.😎
