Jogeswar Nayak became part of the TCS - Tata Power employability training programme which was conducted in the career development centre at Naraj Marthapur. Jogeshwar worked hard and with his dedication got selected in TCS Kolkata. He helped his family by bringing in an additional Rs. 10,000, improving their socio-economic condition significantly.
