    #87: ”My Boss Once Regretted Hiring Me On My First Day” with Gaurav Makhecha | Educative Sessions

    Gaurav Makhecha had a challenging first day on the job: his lead developer tells him that if he were present during the hiring process, he would never have agreed to bring Gaurav on. The journey to winning over his superiors and colleagues was not easy until then, and now Gaurav is on a new, independent path in his career as a developer and manager.
