Journey
When I was in school time, the field of Computer Science excited me. Then, I got admission to MNIT, Jaipur, because I always dreamed of being a Software Developer, so I started to get into that line of learning. I learned DSA and web Development to build my resume, an attractive resume. I applied to the Apple SDE intern in my third year of graduation, and getting an intern profile to write in your resume is a must.
Application story
I got to know that Apple was hiring an SDE intern when I was in the third year of my graduation. I applied through Internshala and received a mail from them that I was assigned an assessment test. I passed that test, and then the interview process started and at last, I was selected for that role.
Why selected/rejected for the role?
I think I had the appropriate skills and a good amount of knowledge to prove that I was the right man for the post. I also solved coding questions in an optimal manner.
