Aspiring Minds: What difficulties did you face while searching for a job and how did you overcame those difficulties?
Raj: After not getting placement from college I started searching for off campus jobs. The first obstacle I encountered was not getting all the information at a centralized place, I had to spend lot of time searching and applying for jobs online. Keeping track of the responses was also not easy. I did not actually overcome these difficulties; I just organized my time so that I can spend some time online every day. I also subscribed on various websites so that I can get all the details in my mail and I just had to check my mail every day.
