What is the best way to answer, "Sell me this pen"?
Hello Ma'am Just wanted to ask one question. I completed my Engineering in July 2017 and did not work after that and appeared for CAT 2017. I have a got a few IIM calls. Now the question is that when they ask me what did u do after completing engineering, what should i tell them? Truth is I opted out of campus placements. I had qualified AFCAT exam(Technical Branch in AirForce and had appeared for the SSB interview in August-September but didn't get through because of a medical issue). I had given many recruitment related exams too like AMCAT and E-litmus to be eligible for many IT and other jobs and got 95+percentile in both of them but I couldn't find any job interesting or a good job profile and package at that time and after that I decided to just prepare for CAT exam because only 2months were left for the exam. So how do u think I should answer my question to not make myself look like I was sitting idle and did nothing and only prepared for CAT?
