“In all the selection process had three rounds – Aptitude Test, GD followed by PI. During the GD I kept offering real-life examples to make strong arguments. My confidence and good communication skills made me stand out during the round,” she says looking back on the day.
The interview was a mix of technical and situational questions and posed her a serious challenge. But it was Unnaati’s presence of mind and quick wit that turned things in her favor. Her quick thinking and bold decision-making ability will make her flourish in the uncertain, unfamiliar business world in the coming days.
According to Unnaati her confidence and decision-making skills stem from her role in Student Excellence Council and the from the event management during her PGDM.

I have been handling a team of 16 in the SEC so I don’t think working in a professional team will be a huge task. I also believe my training will help me with lead generation at work and make the right impression,” she says as she is raring to go.
