Journey
I started preparing for my placement from the starting of the B.Tech. Getting into one of MNCs in India was my dream, and I researched about it a lot like What are the most essential topics fro FAANG Interview?, How should you approach your graduation if you want to make it count?, etc. I practised DSA continuously for three years, and I thought I had a great base for them but at last I was not selected into any of companies in FAANG. But I still tried to get into them some day, and then, after 2 years of completing my graduation I got this opportunity.
Application story
I was in my fourth year and most of my friends were already placed somewhere. I was happy for them but worried for me but meanwhile I saw these openings on amazon careers page and I was very excited for these. So, I applied to these posts from the career page.
Why selected/rejected for the role?
I was selected because I think they needed a guy with good coding skills along with a will to learn and I was able to give them a sign that I was the kind of person they needed.
