CATKing’s Tale of the First Day – Arushi Jain
It wasn’t a normal day. There was something special about this day. Of course, it was my 22nd birthday. But something more exciting was planned for this day. It was 10th April 2017 and it was my first day at “YES BANK”, beginning of new journey in corporate world , being a fresher. I feel pride in saying that YES I am an Nmite and YES I am a Y-PEP (YES PROFESSIONAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP PROGRAM), one of YES BANK’s most innovative and institutionalized Talent Acquisition program led by the YES SCHOOL OF BANKING which aims at hiring the best available management professionals, directly from the Premier B-Schools in India.
I was so damn excited that I woke up very early and got suited up well before time. Reached India bulls Finance center, YES BANK’s corporate office where we were welcomed as Y-PEPs for the year 2017. A well-designed Induction programme which included everything a YES banker should know about YES bank and various knowledge sharing sessions with very innovative videos by different division heads was very much encouraging to start this journey of two months summer internship. I still remember me heading to 22nd floor with my HCM RM and he introducing me to my mentor and the team. The welcoming smile I received from my team inspired me to be my best and give the most in these two months.
The internship aims to foster young leadership with challenging roles and projects and driving high performance through structured Induction, learning programs, and mentorship by senior management, inculcating prudent risk taking attitude and developing Leadership qualities. It is designed to arm the young professionals with a repertoire of skills and experiences that are unique, valuable and hard to replicate, in order to meet and support the Bank’s future growth plans and challengesms, and mentorship by senior management, inculcating prudent risk taking attitude and developing Leadership qualities.

Trainee, Digital Banking Department, YES Bank – title in itself speaks a lot about my profile and exciting work environment. The Culture of YES bank motivates me to make the most of this opportunity. Every day is a challenge every day is a new learning. A place where we can actually see application of so called” “MBA Gyaan”. The buzz word “Disruption in Technology” and many advanced technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Virtual Reality, Gamification, Big Data Analytics etc are affecting BFSI and other industries in big way. My project is to Analyze latent financial needs of customers and suggest possible interventions by YES BANK through above mentioned advanced technologies.
A learning opportunity in a very professional environment where opportunities are immense and everyone is ready to give helping hand. A lot more is yet to come.
