Subject: (JOB) My Success to INFOSYS after failure in 42 companies...

Thank you Chetana ma'am..Ur support cannot be weighed....

Regardin the recruitment, based on my personal experiences, be creative especially wrt CV..Doesn't matter what u put in that-just be creative..Don't copy the format from others. Try ur own !

My creativity led to so many opportunities within 3 months. I am June 2005 passout in ECE from NHCE,Bangalore.....They may not be in the order in which I took.The companies which are repeated have been taken so many times!
