Interviewing Author Jasveena R Prabhagaran
Q1. Tell me about yourself, and what are your favorite books to read?
A. I come from Malaysia, and I have an Engineering degree and an MBA.

Q3. How did you come up with the name of your books?
A. The Sin of a Fresh Graduate is the title of the book we co-authored and the name was picked by one of my co-authors, who came up with the whole idea of writing this book. This name might have stemmed from his discussions with fresh graduates struggling to land a job on LinkedIn.
