Additional Programs: Any Community Welfare Project, Entrepreneurial Work, Management Development Program with Top Business Schools like IIM’s, XLRI etc or International Exchange Program with Leading Universities will not only hone your skills, but they will also make your CV very attractive to the recruiters.
Strong CV: Your CV is like a movie trailer. If you are not able to adeptly express your competence, learnings, experiences and why an organization should hire you in two pages, chances are you may never be shortlisted by a leading organization.
