“Companies need people who ask good questions, learn fast and solve problems. They don't want instruction-takers anymore who are to be told what to do. They want talent who can identify and solve problems independently. They want people with an entrepreneurial mindset" - Aditya Jhunjhunwala, CEO and Co-Founder of Let's Enterprise
