As the kids are still unborn or too young to read this blog, I had to title it as ‘for parents’. And if you are a parent who is always afraid of what people might think or care more about your social impression than your kids’ happiness, then you are advised not to read further. If you are not a parent, then also this post will be very interesting (or disturbing) read for you. As I mentioned in my previous post, that I’m not-normal. So our educational system never made sense to me. But still had to participate in the rat race for long until I became old enough to refuse. This twisted point view of mine resulted in lots of suspicions in people around me, and felt like alien for quite some times. But I’m glad that in last 7 years met many people who bear the same opinion as mine.

Few days back a very good friend and brother of mine Souvick shared his blog post Desired.Waited.Acieved with me. You know how much I love dreamers, and this guy had a dream to get into IBM. Even after facing many challenges, he kept moving and finally made his dream a reality. He shared this experience in his blog post. I was so happy. I left a comment at his post, congratulating him and wishing for his best future, and I was about to leave. Just at that moment, Souvick messaged me on Facebook “your comment is very valuable there, for the fellow aspirants as well“. Honestly, first I thought can my comments be really valuable to IBM aspirants (or any Job aspirants)? As I never ever had any kind of experiences related to job – never wrote CV, never applied/appeared for/cleared any interview/GD etc. Been an Entrepreneur all my life. But then I thought, that I can definitely give some career advice, even if it’s not specific get-good-job tips. I went back to his post and edited my comment. I want to share the same with you. Please keep reading.
