If u get selected feel happy and celebrate.

If u dont get selected, still feel happy, because


there might be another great company awaiting
you.

Everyone is going to be selected in their dream


company

Word Of Caution (Contd..)

Getting a job is a great achievement, but getting an


admission for a higher study is a greater achievement.

If you have a chance always plan for higher studies.

A Masters Degree adds a lot of value.

higher studies adds a lot of value for your career.

It is the main difference between IITs and NITs. 40 50


% of people in IITs go for higher studies despite the kind
of jobs they get.

All the Best for the campus
