Before joining Intuit, I had a total experience of about 3 years as front-end developer in Software Product development.
I had twin babies and hence I took the career break to concentrate on my family.
Total of about 2.5 years.
I was looking for a job where I can manage my family as well as get to do some really exciting work. Intuit matched my requirements and that got me really interested.
Starting from my interview process till the last day of my internship it was well organized. The required information about the various interview rounds was shared well in advance which helped me prepare better for the interview. The hiring process was mainly focused on evaluating my fundamentals and my problem solving skills. The interview panel was very understanding and made me feel comfortable throughout the process. Post joining Intuit, the internship started off with a boot camp in the first week where we had inspiring talks from heads of various business units that helped me gain confidence.
Initially I was really skeptical if I will be able manage my work and family. But seeing other women in Intuit Again program doing it successfully gave me the confidence and made me believe in my capabilities. Also, I got very good technical support and guidance from my mentor. I was put into a live project and was given abundant opportunities which helped me improve and ramp up my technical and coding skills. Also the help from our senior Intuit Again batch and from our lean-on program helped us have a smooth comeback.
The program was well organized. Everyone was supportive and encouraging. I was able to connect with other women in the batch as every one of us was in a similar situation.
Intuit is employee friendly company that also gives you immense opportunities to grow your technical skills. I have had the right work-life balance throughout the journey. Overall this program is a great platform that helped me to bridge gaps in my technical knowhow and kick start my career after a break.
As I was put into live project, I ramped up my speed and gained confidence. My team gave me enough time to learn new technologies.
Managing work and home was the biggest challenge. I had good support system (caretaker for the kids and domestic help) in place before I joined back to work. My husband was also equally involved in managing the house.
Be confident and believe in your capabilities. Make sure to have a proper support system in place so that you can balance home and work.Join a team like Rajeswari
