Mr. Daksh then discussed his experiences working with various businesses and educational institutions. He also shared his experience in the domain of entrepreneurship over the years and how he has helped small business grow.

    He went on to discuss the structure of introduction and how one should present himself/herself in an interview. Some of the key points he mentioned were :

    2. Mention the family background from which you belong (army/govt/medical/corporate/business)
    3. Mention from where you did your schooling from (10th,12th)
    4. Convince the interviewer that you’re there to stay and are genuinely interested in the industry for which you are applying
    5. Mention your college and programme, if you’re appearing externally
    6. Mention your extracurricular activities like your active participation in societies, organizations, internships, NGOs, Student Council, Tech Club
    7. Never mention your family business or higher education plans
    8. Convince the interviewer that you’re interested and are planning to stay in the industry for a very long time
    9. Be laid back, simple, elegant and enjoy
    10. Leave ego and attitude outside the door

    Then after this, he laid emphasis on the need of certification programs, small projects (chatbot, websites), Binance Portfolio (send recruiter the link), Power BI, Social Work (girl up, rotary, ngos) and paid great emphasis on mentioning the same on LinkedIN
