Viral News: Some people are the epitome of strength and positivity, and no matter what struggles life throws at them, they endure it all with a smile. One such story of a cancer patient has gone viral after he appeared for a job interview during one of his chemotherapy sessions. In a picture that has gone viral, Arsh Nandan Prasad, an IT professional hailing from Jharkhand, can be seen sitting on the hospital bed before his laptop and appearing for the interview, while going through a session of chemotherapy.
Arsh, who has the #OpenToWork badge on LinkedIn, spoke about the struggles of getting a job because of his health issue. In a note attached with the image, he wrote, “When you give your best in the interviews but are not selected for the mere fact that you are going through a rough patch in life certainly shows how generous these companies are. As the recruiters come to know that I’m fighting Cancer, I see the change in their expressions. I don’t need your sympathy!! I’m here to prove myself.”
