Mentors are a very important part of every person’s life including IT professionals. In fact, a good mentor could build or break a young Padawan’s entire career. Fortunately, or unfortunately, your mentors never ask or expect anything from you in return. They just give, and give, and give, even more, defining you as artists, intrapreneurs, entrepreneurs, and professionals.
A few weeks ago, Edureka sought to change all of this by introducing the ‘Ridiculously Committed Mentor Awards.’ The idea was to reward these ridiculously committed personalities who stay in the shadows and let their prodigy shine. Over the next few weeks, several successful professionals from across different domains nominated their amazing mentors and did their best to ensure that they won. But, there could only be a handful of winners.
On 5th September 2018, the day we celebrate Teachers’ Day in India, Edureka announced the Ridiculously Committed Mentor Awards 2018 to reward those outstanding professionals and leaders who have dedicated their career to creating amazing leaders in their images. The awards were open to any and all professionals who wished to nominate their mentors in the race to win the ultimate prize. As soon as the contest was announced, we received an overwhelming response from all over the country. Hundreds of professionals had nominated their mentors in a span of a few weeks.
Following this, each of the nominators promoted their mentors’ profiles to gather as many votes as possible. Popular voting was one of the criteria in selecting our winners. The other, more important factor was an intensive interview of all the nominated mentors conducted by an internal team of experts.
After all of this evaluation was done, each mentor was given a final score out of 10 which comprised of different components including popular votes, the interview round and the strength of the story, and the top-scoring mentors became our honorable winners. Interestingly, the results to the Ridiculously Committed Mentor Awards were announced on 5th October 2018, which happens to be International Teachers’ Day.
Without further ado, let’s meet the winners of the Edureka Ridiculously Committed Mentor Awards and the reasons why these amazing professionals deserve this honor:
