    Interview

    I underwent 4 levels of interview here. 3rd and 4th levels were somewhat difficult. But as a content writer I managed to answer most of the questions. Being a part of UST is fun and a matter of pride. I am just going to work with sales support team and it will be very engaging and sometimes multitasking will be required.
