Technical: How would you normalize a given database ?

How would you generate all the permutations of a given number?

Role of Internships and extracurricular activities: Yes, my past internships did play a major role J

As far as extracurricular activities are concerned, they can’t be the reason for rejection but always add value and  increase your chances of selection when you are competing against equally good candidates 🙂
