What helped offset the 710? Did you have good gpa or work experience?

Idk about the story…founding a company is a pretty big deal for your work experience and more to do with the resume than the story itself. But good for you regardless!

Congrats!! I'm a 1Y Boothie and happy to answer any questions you may have before your interview!

Anyone from IQVIA? I just wanted to check something. I gave 2 rounds of interview and got selected. The HR asked for the documents for further process, I submitted them in the second last week of May. I still don't have any update on it. I called them thrice, Then I dropped an email to HR asking for an update, and the worst part is the HR neither replied to my email and when I tried calling yesterday, the HR deducted call. 🤷‍♂️ What should I do? They didn't release my offer letter too! 💁‍♂️
