I think it shows you don’t fully understand what goes into the work. Without being briefed, how do you know enough about the client or what they’re looking for to be able to create good work? Very presumptuous and desperate as already mentioned.

Hey guys, in your resume do you write client names for the engagements that you have done or keep it generic like, Blue chip company or PSU bank etc?

Heard so many bad reviews about Nagarro's project allocation. Especially people from Automation Testing backgrounds are pushed into manual testing projects.
