Still feels good to hear it.

Like sponsored by Nike? Then Biden prompts you to do what?

Hi everyone, I joined EPAM Systems in India as Software Engineer. It's been already a month failed couple of internal interviews haven't got placed in a project.
I'm preparing as much as I can. I'm feeling these internal interviews are bit tough.
1) Is it safe in EPAM if one is not in a project. How long can one stay in bench.
2) Is there a possibility one can get into a project without these interviews.

Hey all, US born Tam Brahm here. Hope this isn’t too sensitive a topic to ask about, but for all those with deeper Indian roots than I do (born in or living in India), can you please explain why some people posit that even having this chat perpetuates the negative parts of a caste system? My perhaps naive perspective is that Brahmins are a caste but also a religious subsect. One can be religious and seek similar devotees without believing in or perpetuating caste hierarchy. Reductive or fair?
