Nishant: If you want your dream job, always chase your passion with full faith and determination. I kept trying hard and I was fortunate enough to participate in some international coding competition like ACM ICPC and secured a good All India Rank. The success in coding competitions motivated me to work hard and keep trying and I cleared the JOSH TECHNOLOGY group interview. One thing I have learnt in my student life is that you must keep trying hard and improve yourself daily.
