Full Interview

Vipul had his share of ups and downs as he tried to get a summer internship at CU Boulder. He was once rejected by Qualcomm before getting a second chance!

After getting rejected from Qualcomm first time and Micron for intern position, I got an offer from Seagate (Longmont office) for Platform Software Team. Qualcomm final offer came in the end.

P.S. Embedded Systems courses at CU Boulder are seriously great and are designed especially taking industrial views and skills required. Also, this area (Boulder and surrounding area) has lots of companies working on firmware/Embedded Software/storage solutions/Communications

Testimonials

I dropped a year due to health issues and used that time to prepare for Masters in US. But this year gap was increasing and joining Scholar Strategy was a wake-up call. I was totally confused regarding the course to pursue and Nistha made it clear to me. She showed me the path to identify my passions. And from there on, the sail was smooth. The timely facebook posts, quora answers, her book, the presentations and the feedback on my documents are very valuable for me.
