There were times in my life which needed my presence and full attention. Instead to having an unbalanced professional and personal life I decided to take a break considering the priorities at that point of time. I believe I have done what I could, and now I consider my career as my top priority and decided to restart my career.

Actually, when I had joined the Company I was a fresher and I'm really grateful for my company who had appointed me as being a fresher, there was no goal set in life and haven't also a good platform to go ahead then I thought if I want to achieve a goal in my life then I should give the time to get experience which will help me further to provide me good much better platforms, so that was the reason.

I tried for internal postings within my organisation for the position that I was interested, but unfortunately could not the find right ones and also felt the need to re-skill myself by pursuing a full-fledged course which is why I applied for XYZ University and pursued the ABC course which was very rigorous with a continuous evaluation system and we needed to be on our toes to meet all the weekend deadlines hence I had to quit my current job.

Also, there were certain client regulations which we had to adhere to since it was an ODC (Offshore Development Centre) and hence I had to take this tough call between my job and pursuing a full-fledged program.

To be honest after getting out from college in 2016 I have attend three interviews but I was not able to get through. My parents wanted me to get into banking sector as most of my relatives are in banking. But I know that's not my field. Due to my parents compulsion I have joined a banking training institute where I have wasted four months. At last I just told my father that I Don't belong to banking sector and I wanted to get into technical field. And I am here right now.

To be honest I was poor in my communication skills so I tried reading the newspaper daily to improve my vocabulary and it took time.

I used to prepare myself to crack interviews. Usually, a company like yours don't ask normal questions. You need to be prepared for the interview.

Sir I tried to get a job. But I was never given a chance to get a walk in for an interview. But because of my hope and positive attitude I never gave up and kept trying. I am really glad and appreciate that you gave me that opportunity and if I get a platform to prove myself I can be an effective resource to your organization. If I fail to do that, the same hope and positive attitude will give me a boost to work more hard and prove myself.

It is a true story :.

I was diagnosed for an inguinal hernia and had to be operated after which I was not allowed to work in night shifts nor even could sit in the same position for long time.

Just after that, I had been operated for fissure as well and consequently I did not join any organization.

However, I did not stop earning as I kept myself busy in giving coaching classes to my society kids.

And my doctor has confirmed that I am fit and fine and can work in night shifts as well, I am heading up again.
