I, Ms. Shinu Thomas, the only child of my parents, have studied majoring in B.Sc Biotechnology and M.Sc Herbal Sciences. Though my studies were research oriented, I have experience of working in the hospital industry for almost 3 years and then now joining The Max Foundation, which stresses my interest in serving people.
So my entry into The Max Foundation happened this way:
One mid morning (10.30AM) my mobile rings and on receiving the call, a sweet voice at the other end says – is this Ms. Shinu Thomas? Hi, am Viji Venkatesh from The Max Foundation – are you looking for a job??? (And all kind of answer rang at the back of my head – yes, no, let’s try etc etc). By then I realized that I had already said yes and Ma’am stating the next question, so why don’t you come for interview tomorrow? Again at the back of my head answers were like how I can go tomorrow, its going too fast. Also since my father was unwell the previous month, I was then supporting him with his work and so I just requested Ma’am that I will come for interview on the coming Saturday. And the voice said any time before that you can come, but if you wish for a saturday then come by 11.00 Am.
So there I was on saturday at 11.00Am at the Max Foundation Office for the so called interview. And as the sound of a young lady that I had heard – I was all set to call her Viji Ma’am, but with my entry into the office room, I heard everyone referring to her as Amma. And there the next moment she was in front of me saying “Shinu – come beta come. Did you have tea, coffee or at least some Juice? I didn’t want anything since I was only thinking how my interview will pass by.”And the next moment I realized me too calling her Amma – because so was the warmth in her words.
And again, as I was waiting for this official interview to happen – And I heard Amma asking me when am I joining? And I had my eyes wide open and I had liked Amma so much that I heard myself saying that from coming Monday onwards I will join and on the same day I already attended a session on “Phone Ettiquets.”
My Experience at Max Foundation:
The first day only I realized that God has blessed me and given me a better chance to serve humanity by making me a part of The Max Foundation. I find all the people associated with The Max Foundation very genuine, pleasant, helping and very co-operative. Thank you all for accepting me as a part of your beautiful family and giving me a chance to serve people.
God bless this organization and the beautiful cause it’s taken on its shoulders. At this moment, I also remember all the patients till date I have interacted with.
