Professional's Interview and Experience with Talent58

Interview of Dr.Yashvir Singh Goel


Q1- Your latest designation and company? Some words about your pre-retirement experience?
Ans1- Worked as Chief Engineer in Power/Steel/Automobile Sector. Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Head of Department at IIT Delhi. Also, I was the Co-Founder of Rawal Group of Institutions.

I am a Graduate from IIT Khadakpur, and since that time, I have been working and side by side learning new things. Through this learning while working principle of mine, I have been able to achieve specialization in varied fields like designing, construction etc.


Q2- Sir, a short story.. an inspirational one .. through your career, which you would like to share with us ?
Ans2- Usually people pursue engineering, find a suitable job and that’s it. But for me.. I have been updating my knowledge since that time. Work experience plus latest knowledge is the perfect combination that instills a feeling of confidence in a person. Even skilled engineers work for whole of their life with the theoretical knowledge that they have, but being a continuous learner portrays a multi faceted experienced personality of a person.
 

Q3- What is the biggest achievement of your life/career?
Ans3- I am the FOUNDER DIRECTOR of Rawal Group of Institutions for courses like M. Tech, MBA, MCA, Hotel Management etc. This institute received the BEST EMERGING Institute in Delhi NCR award by Times Group. So, this is probably the biggest achievement of my life.
Moreover, I have received a Lifetime Achievement Award. 



Q4-The biggest challenge you faced in life, and how you overcame it?
Ans4- Firstly, getting into IIT was a big challenge for me. Not only getting into it, but also surviving in such competitive environment needed a lot of toil on my part.

As of now, dealing with such bureaucracy and stringent rules and procedures turns out to be a big challenge. A night before you are the CEO of a big organization and all decisions are taken by you, and next day.. in the morning when you wake up.. You become Useless !! For some jobs there can be a retirement age, but not for every job… It’s wastage of a person actually.

In USA, there is no retirement age. People can work as long as they feel like working. Rules should be made flexible because rigid rules hamper the growth of the society and the nation as a whole.


Q5-What keeps you motivated to work even after retirement?
Ans5- Having Doctorate in Engineering from IITs is an achievement in itself and I do not want it to go waste. My knowledge has the potential to be utilized by the organizations and contribute to the society and the nation. Not just contribution, rather, I would like to make a MEMORABLE contribution to the society.

Q6- What keeps you busy after retirement?
Ans6- I am currently working as an Advisor in various organizations. Also, as I mentioned earlier that I am a continuous learner, I keep myself busy in research work and writing research papers.


Q7- Have your work priorities changed post retirement?
Ans7- No, I am fortunate in this regard. My family is very supportive and I can do any research or study work at this age without any pressure from their side.


Q8- Do you like this idea?
Ans8- I like this idea very much. This is the only job portal I have seen which is actually meant for retired persons. Also, I feel that this is very much a social requirement. This resource should not go waste as we retired professionals have so much of knowledge; both theoretical and practical, then why should it be wasted. I think it is a great idea. Because of this mandatory retirement age in our country I believe that you people have a very bright future and I bless you with best of my wishes.
