Founder, Trof

Yogesh K Shah is a Chartered Accountant and is also currently pursuing a Bachelors in law and has an overall working experience of around 8 years in the corporate world.

He has worked in various multinational and domestic organizations and because of the varied work experience, he has exposure in accounts, tax, process optimization and varied types of audits. He has worked as a Consultant as well as has a fresh-hand experience of how industry operates.

Yogesh has also been a visiting faculty at Christ University for an audit paper of ACCA-BBA course.

While working as a Chartered accountant, he saw more and more graduates coming into the Corporate culture without having any basic knowledge, and skills in any field.

So he decided to make a change. Putting down his thought process and jotting down some basic structure of the plan, he left his salary, his comfortable life, his promotion, and everyone who advised him to stay, He Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC) & started Trof.

“I want students to think through, apply, and try multiple options before they choose their career. There are a lot of ways, it could be training, research, interning, just talking, networking, listening, consuming content, thinking, or a blend of these, to name a few.” ~ Yogesh

He possesses the knowledge & experience of how to make your careers successful, which every student should explore before starting their careers. So all in all, I am a Career Consultant helping students to make their careers count.

I believe starting a career is a culmination of 2 things: understanding which careers to choose and preparing yourself with the right skills for that particular career.

I’m a hardcore believer in offline training. I personally believe online training on any subject is good when you want to reach from level 1 to 2 or anything higher. But when you are at 0 or stuck between 0 to 1, offline is the way to go. It helps you build a strong foundation.

And while I’m not teaching, I love to write, meditate, update myself with what’s happening around and think about what I can do better for young graduates to get them to the next level.
