2CPD1. Self IntroductionMy name isPLEASE FILLand I am a student of Civil Engineering. I completed myschool level studies from Goutham Model School and graduated in Civil Engineering fromSphoorthy Engineering College. During my entire learning phase, I have been a very quicklearner and I learned the subjects for gathering more and more knowledge. I always valued mylessons and wanted to apply these knowledge in practical works that will enhance my workingskills.My goal is life is to be a successful as a Civil Engineering not only in terms of monetarygains earned by working but also earning job satisfaction and achieving highest level of appraisalsolely based on my personal performances. I have high ambitions about my own work and I amseeking challenging job positions that will bring the best out of me and I will be able toimplement my technical skills and knowledge to the best of my abilities.In 5 years, I see myself in a high post in a reputed organization that I will earn byperforming with excellence and also earn praise from my superiors. I believe that I will be a verycompetent employee who learns fast and seeks challenging roles that will bring the best out ofhim.
