I was a student of MSc in Applied Microbiology (MIC) 2017-2019 batch. I am currently working at COVID-19 testing centre, under Health & family welfare department of Odisha at Capital Hospital as a medical microbiologist, since February 2020. After obtaining my MSc. degree, I was very worried about getting a job. I consulted my mentor who has mentored me since the first day of my student life at KSBT. I am so grateful that when I was so worried about my job, she guided me really well during those difficult times. She motivated me to stay focussed and further enrich my knowledge. I am very happy with my current job and I was able to achieve this due to her guidance and trust in me. I thank my mentor for being a great role model for me. I am extremely grateful to the mentor-mentee programme at KSBT.
