It may be recession, but I’m employed!

Graduating this week, in the midst of recession

Got a feeling, I ought to be in depression

Where are the jobs? my friends ask

for them attending career fairs, are a mundane task

But me? I’m happy, you see

Cause, I’m enrolled with Amplify Mindware yippee!

Given the situation,  Amplify Mindware prepared

and first surveyed how the market had faired

They selected only those industries they knew

were expanding their staff and looking for new

Retail, pharmacy and sectors with the best reviews

were called in to AM for campus interviews

Microsoft, Airtel, Birlasoft, you name it

were making the rounds, & we celebrated!

That’s why, I’m graduating tension free

cause despite recession, I’m an employee!
