    Many of us, asking me How to apply for this drive.
    This is referral drive.
    So Tell someone who is currently working in IBM to give your reference.
    Once he/she did you will get mail from their side regarding referral code:)

    If you have any kind of query you can ask here.
    All the Best!!

      Hey Tiya!

      They just wann to know your interest to join their company. So no need to resign before exam.
      I’m damn sure they will take your written test and if you crack, you can give them a surety regards your resignation.

      Btw, In which IT firm are you working right now??
