Like many kids, I too aspired to be a part of the armed forces, the Air force until the time I came to my O/Levels, that’s when I decided to be a doctor. However, a little later after speaking to a friend’s father who was a doctor, I decided to pursue engineering as a career. Why? Well uncle said “prioritize your life…If your personal / family life is the lead, then the medical profession is not for you”. I analyzed myself, and yes I prioritized.
Later, I developed a passion for electrical engineering, and since I wasn’t able to meet the sky high merit for the chosen field, I had to opt for CS. A long story short ... Eventually I land up… in HR :)
This is something I have always wanted to do. Career development, analysis, prognosis and diagnosis, solutions and counseling. So, how did I end up in a profession that was a true calling? I have absolutely no idea.
Just a matter of luck!
