Each frame of the published clip spoke of the young man's merit and he received quick replies from the company founder and the head of design, Harish Sivaramakrishnan.
Replying to the engaging application, the design head at the financial services startup said, "Hey Avkash Shah - all of us at the CRED Design Mafia loved what you have created here and we are certain that there is a lot more we can dream, envision and create together. Welcome to the interns club at the CRED Design Mafia! Lekshmi G is your buddy and she will get in touch with you to take this forward. Onward and Upward!"
As of now, the ingenious video has received more than 11.7 lakh views and over 2.8k comments. Having started his career on such a high pitch, garnering attention from a round of prospective employers, Avkash will surely walk up an illustrious ladder of success. Additionally, this will inspire other job aspirants to think and devise fresh and unconventional ways of impressing employers.
