He refused to meet with me continuously for the two days which was Friday and Saturday. But third time, on Monday, he agreed to meet with me. When I entered into his office. He looked at me that I was mad. I said Good morning to him and in reply he nodded and said to me, “you have only 3 minutes gentleman. I thanked to him and said my elevator pitch. He looked amazed at me. He said to me, “you have no experience for the job and your BBA is incomplete. Why I pick you for this job?” I said, “Yes.
