"I am working with Cognizant Technology Solutions since the beginning of my career in 2006. It's been a tremendous journey as I got to learn a lot of things related to work and profession and career while working in multiple projects. Cognizant has certainly met my needs and expectations and also providing me with an opportunity to come to US to lead operations from here at a very early stage of my career. I am looking to learn more and do more in Web Content field."
