Happy to share that yesterday, Hangoutt (135 Tech Labs) was selected as a Regional Finalist at the Microsoft BizSpark India Startup Challenge. We're among the 10 finalists (out of around 50 that applied from Hyderabad). We will be presenting tomorrow at ISB (Khemka Auditorium).
So I guess we're a good company to work for
135 Tech Labs, Technology at its joyous best , but I'm posting them here for your reference:

About 135 Tech Labs
135 Tech Labs(http://www.135techlabs.com) is an Angel backed venture in the mobile technology space based out of Hyderabad, India. The core team consists of Alumni from the Indian School of Business (ISB) and North Carolina State University. 135 Tech Labs is pioneering a concept called Mobile App as a Service (MaaS). As in Software as a Service (SaaS), MaaS allows customers to be on the latest version of an App without worrying about any upgrade costs or infrastructure overheads. While there are few companies that offer MaaS to their customers in some form, we believe we are the first to offer a comprehensive mobile product totally as a MaaS.

I suggest that you let the HR/hiring manager know upfront about this, because sometimes companies are very touchy about such cases. I know about a few folks who were asked to leave because they did not have all the relevant experience certificates.
If you have stated 4 years work ex in your resume, how did you describe your first job? Just let the company folks know as an FYI that the first job was as a freelancer so you do not have the exp cert for that, but you do have the certs for the other 3 companies.
Hope this helps

I have problem and would need your valuable help to solve that.
Basically I am a BE grad working in a software firm in Bangalore from pat 2 years on SAP platform, SAP XI\PI to be specific, which is technical. I was involved in some marketing work for one of the events that we held in our company to showcase what are the offerings of SAP to our customers.And this went on pretty well, looking at which SAP team in our company thought of showcasing it to the other prospects in US, Europe and other major regions.
I was involved in designing all the collaterals, brochures and theme here (which I really liked working on). The presales team here was impressed with my work and offered me to get into presales!
Now, my question is if I opt for marketing in MBA, what will be the job profile? Will it be same as what I would be doing in presales? (It would be great if somebody lets me know what exactly is done in presales, in brief,,..)
I am plannning to do my MBA after a year or two. Will working on presales now, be a value add for me when I go out AFTER my MBA?
But if at all (hope doesn't happen though), by any reason, if I cannot pursue my MBA later, how would presales in SAP be as my long term career?
I am looking forward to your valuable responses very eagerly!
Well, am not sure if this is the right forum to discuss this. Do let me know the right forum if this one is wrong, as this is my first post! :)
Thanks in advance,
