Please give us a summary of your Career.
I studied engineering which did not really help me enter the business. However, I really wanted to help my father with his business. Therefore, I decided to help him move smoothly through his business by being an Accounts Manager in the company. Even though I scored good grades in my graduation, I decided to work here because I am earning more over here than the work I was doing, which was related to mechanical engineering. This is also why I would suggest that students try for a startup if they come up with any good ideas that can be worked out in actuality.
