I was considered normal as long as I was walking the road of life according to what others decided for me. But from the day, I started following my own heart, people around me (yes my parents too) started considering me not-normal ( just because abnormal sounds too rude). How can a normal person (according to them), leave academics after passing out from two of the finest institutions of our country ( read ‘Narendrapur Ramakrishna Mission’ & ‘Shibpur BE College’)? How can a normal Bengali boy decide to start own business instead of going for MNC / Govt. jobs? ( Don’t you know that God declared in an ancient pamphlet “Bongs can’t do business”?)
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.
