  1. It’s truly brilliant way to apply for a job. Most interestingly I like the idea very much that where the applicant is going to apply he or she needs to know about the city or the place. Thank you.

  2. Interesting to respond to the questions asked. Somehow one gets to reflect and realise a few things about themselves, like growth within. I enjoyed the processes. It kind of felt like an interview.
