    Hello folks, I'm very glad to share with you that I have got placed in SAMSUNG. I joined in Maven-silicon 5 months ago , before joining here i took online DM Course from Maven which helped me in improving my Digital and Verilog concepts and gave me enough confidence for entering into the VLSI industry and during online DM course live Q&A sessions specially helped me in clearing all my doubts. first and foremost I need to mention the structure of the course here ,which gives the proper way of understanding the concepts and enhance our skills , and the next thing is Trainers in maven , they are highly skilled and knowledgeable & encourages all the doubts in the learning process and finally gives you placement opportunities until you get placed , I'm very fortunate that i have got placed in the first attempt I will suggest you guys to join in maven and gain the knowledge in the VLSI industry. For a great career in Semiconductor Industry. All you need is Maven's training and your hardwork. Success will surely follow you.
