After I joined NTA , during my first week of internship all my seniors made so comfortable that I didn’t felt it’s my first working experience with them. The events that i worked for includes “Techunt Genius 2014″ and “Techunt 2014″.we learned that success is achieved by a balanced equation of quality of work and quantity of work. found great friends and colleagues and thankyou Amit sir for being so supportive and for mentoring us .
