Harsha asked

worked,working for 9 yrs in textile designing can see 0 growth and feel frustated !\nwhat else can I do to add a spark into me/my portfolio.\nIt's very annoying when a colledge passout works under a experienced and fetches same/more salary. \n\nAdvise
18 May 2017, 12:42am
Hello Harsha,\nYes it can be annoying...and this is going to get worse, as younger people get preference for their supposedly fresh ideas and new designs. I'm not sure what type of textiles do you design and what kind of companies do you work for. If you share those details, I can give you a specific reply. However, I would suggest that to improve your career, see if you can work for a foreign company or buying house, so that this shows on you CV. Another option is to study a short-term course to add to your CV. If you can afford it, go abroad for this.\nOne more option is to go and ask some famous fashion designer for "guru" advise on whether there is something that you are doing wrong and what you can do to correct it.\nFinally, if you think that this current state of affairs can't be changed, then give up fashion designing and try something else.\nRegards,\nHarsh\n

Nabina asked

Hello Harsh Sir!I am a CA final student n particularly I belongs to Nepal.Currently I am thinking of starting a business in Nepal.Would u please suggest me some valuable tips for startups that is worthwhile in a country like Nepal n I will also be grateful if u show me the way for executing my ideas into actions.
05 May 2017, 09:52pm
Nabina,\nGlad to know that you want to start a business in your country and thus become a job-creator yourself, rather than a job-seeker. The business that you want to start should either be something you're good at or something you care about. So for instance, if you care about animals, start a pet shelter. if you care about fitness, start a gym for women. If you care about education, become a franchise of some digital content company. And so, on. Or if you're good at finance (CA) then become an independent consultant to other firms.\nTwo more things. How much money do you have to invest in your own business. And, do you have relevant experience so that you can succeed. If you don't have the money or the experience, then first work in that sector and build your understanding of what it takes to succeed--and also save money that will be used your capital. \nSince India has more opportunities than Nepal, you may want to work for a couple of years in India before working for another six months in Nepal and then starting your business there.\nHarsh

Suman asked

Dear Sir,\nThank You so much for your advice and guidance.\nYes, I am trying applying in corporate banking but did not try in other sectors.\nAs far as business is concerned I never gave it a thought, the reason I have no idea about where to start from and in which sector.\nIs there any scope for it?\nRegards\nSuman Preet Kaur
01 May 2017, 11:22pm
Suman,\nStart a business that's close to your heart. If you like children, then think crèche or daycare. If you like fitness, think gym. If you like food, restaurants or bakeries? If you like clothes, then a shop. If you don't have the relevant experience, go work in a large store in a mall or in a gym or at a crèche, before you start your own. That way you'll learn if you're good at this. Then of course, you have to raise the money.\nSince you're financially savvy, think about working for some brokerage firm, so that you can learn how the stockmarket works. Perhaps you can become a stockmarket trader--as a full-time job. Even if you start with little capital, if you're good, you can convert that into a bigger sum.\nRegards,\nHarsh

Rashmi asked

Hi Mr Harsh\nI am Rashmi Chaudhary,a 43 year housewife with practically no experience .Now my son is in college and my husband is in a touring job so I am seeking an engagement.Initially I want to start by volunteering with an ngo.I also want to audition for voice jobs and tv.I also keep thinking about starting some work of my own.I am based in Delhi .Please help me to make a new beginning.My contact no is 9910657983 and email I'd is rashmichaudhary1974@ gmail.com.\nThanks
01 May 2017, 04:23pm
Rashmi, starting your own business is the toughest but most satisfying. Auditioning may be the most difficult--normally younger persons would be preferred; volunteering with an NGO is the easiest. Doesn't matter about your experience. Since you don't seem to be the primary bread-earner, you may as well choose to follow your heart. What areas do you really care about? Is it food (restaurant)? Is it children (crèche, daycare)? Is it animals (pet care)? Is it garments (design)? Or do you simply want to earn some money, in which case you could even start as a distributor for Amway, but that will require you to have good selling skills--convincing others to part with their money! And this skill is necessary for your own business too. To test whether you have that skill, you could join a friend's or relative's business nearby. They needn't pay you, but if they give you work, and if you make a sale, you can get a commission. \nGo with your heart, but go with the capability to sell. If you can't do that, then join an NGO. If you don't want to do that, then think about getting involved with the local RWA or the school management committee of the local government school or volunteer with the Aam Admi Party--all these are fulfilling roles, and they will challenge you too! Except that they won't pay you.

Suman asked

Dear Sir,I have worked with a Public Sector Bank for five years in Trade-Finance Operations as Assistant Manager(from 2009 to 2014) but for some personal reason, I had to resign from the job. But now as things are settled, I want to get back to work. I tried applying through job-portal but it seems recruiters are not considering my resume due to long career gap i.e. of 2.5 yrs.\nCurrently, I am pursuing PGDBM-Finance from Welingkar Institute of Management- Mumbai and also completed a certification course in related experience but seems recruiters are not considering the same.\\nPlease suggest me what skills I need to acquire and apart from that in what way I can approach for job application so that I can at least be called for an interview. Also, please suggest me if there any other sectors as well where I can look upon and the courses and certifications I need to complete.\n\nLooking forward to hearing from you.\n\nRegards,\nSuman Preet Kaur
29 Apr 2017, 08:25pm
Dear Ms. Kaur,\nIn your CV, you should give the reason for your break clearly, so that no one is left guessing--was it to raise a child; if so, say that?\nSecond, write your accomplishments clearly in your five years. During that time, your business from ... to ... This will show that in your working time at least, you did well.\nThird, it seems you have a finance background and could work in corporate finance, apart from financial institutions. Which means, every company above Rs. 1,000 crore might have a role for you. So you should draw up a list of companies in the city that you are in (Mumbai?) and directly apply.\nFourth, think about other sectors, for instance any large NGO would also need someone like you in finance (and accounts). And they too pay well.\nFifth, perhaps you can join a CA firm--you're not a CA yourself, but your forex background maybe a useful addition to them to offer one more service apart from the other services that they offer.\nSixth, see if you want to get out of finance and a corporate job altogether--do you want to start your own business?\nRegards,\nHarsh

Chunwi asked

Hello Harsh Sir,, I am Chunwi 15 years work Experience but right now i break from my work for few months looking for the better job for my future but its dificult to get the job ;( I try from the sheroes but its still not find what i want ,, I need you help where can i get better job and for the future i want to star mmy own business i need you advance sir
10 Mar 2017, 01:55am
Dear Ms. Chunwi,\n\nWhen thinking about your future, add ten years to your current age, see where you want to be, and then work backwards. If a business is your ten-year goal, then you have to think clearly and in your mind answer the following questions:\n1) What kind of business do you want to start?\n2) When do you want to start that business? So, working backwards, how many years do you need to work before you start that business?\n3) If your proposed business is your aim, then I suggest that the work you take up for the next two to three years, should be linked to that business? That is work in the same sector and get relevant experience, so that when you start your business, you already know something.\nSo for instance, if your business is to open a restaurant, then ideally, you should work in a restaurant chain. If your business is in garments, then work either in a garment exporter or in a retail chain, or in an online chain like Myntra. \n4) How much money do you need as capital for your business? If you need a lot of money, then you will have to take a more well-paying job, rather than a sectorally relevant job. \n\nWhat are your current skills? Do you have any current liabilities (home loans, etc.) for which you have to take some job, any job, or do you have earnings (husband, savings) that you can wait to pick the relevant job? \n\nWithout specifics from your side, I can only give you general replies, like this one.\n\nBest wishes.\nHarsh

Sheetal asked

Hello Harsh, I am an MBA finance and have 8 years of experience in mutual fund accouting. I worked in hyderabad for nearly 7 years and now moved to pune. I have taken a break due to personal reasons and now ready to work again. I wish to take up business analyst role but I don't have any experience for that role could you please advice how should I go ahead?
03 Oct 2016, 06:12pm
Sheetal, 1) You can join a KPO of a financial services company as a business analyst for their American clients. Unfortunately, almost all of these companies are operating in Mumbai or Navi Mumbai, so if you can relocate there, you'll get a start. 2) You could join an existing large company in Pune in their corporate strategy role, perhaps as a junior person, since you don't have relevant experience. Corporate strategy is a good way to get into becoming a business analyst. 3) You could start by offering your services part time to startups. They too need a business analyst to tell them what their future is like; what competition will be; and what trends are going to shape their business. 4) You may want to start writing for a financial website, like moneycontrol or something more niche about a particular sector--and get paid per article.

31 Aug 2016, 04:35pm
Ruchi, Getting jobs at home aren't likely to pay you very much. You may want to take a full-time job and then pay for a crèche for your child. You have a general background in HR and admin. These skills require you to be in an office. If you were a content writer for a website or an SEO specialist you could have worked from home, but now with your skills. Browse through the Sheroes job listing to see what jobs are available near you. Also, look at other portals. If you have to make money, you may as well take the highest paying job that allows you to spend on a good crèche and still save. These HR, admin, vendor jobs are things that every company--or even every NGO might need. If you don't have a crèche nearby, then perhaps you can take a less-paying but part-time job.

Hi! I am Statistics graduate and have been preparing for Civil Services since then but could not make it to the final list. I want to do something where I can apply my civil services preparation knowledge along with statistics. Something like Social Entrepreneurship. Can you please guide me how should I proceed.
23 Aug 2016, 04:19pm
Poonam, three choices: Try again for the civil services--and this time study harder. Second, join a large organization that's working in development to understand this broad sector and to find for yourself, which area of social entrepreneurship you're most interested in--women, environmen, children, etc. Third, give up the civil servcies dream. Enrol in a good MBA (where your civil service preparation will help you better understand India's complex challenges) and join a company in its marketing or finance teams. So, basically make up your mind about whether you want to do good, have power, or make money!

23 Aug 2016, 12:42pm
Shaveta, I think working for a few hours may not get you much income. It may be better to study for an MBA part-time, during this time, so that in two years time, when your children are a little older you can return to a better-paying full-time corporate job. Else, with your pharmacy background, you could go work part-time with a nearby large hospital to help manage their pharmacy--not work in it, but manage it.

We are looking for some guidance on SEO and ASO, Do we have to get these done on regular basis to promote the app ?? or initially we can stick with only one time?
22 Aug 2016, 03:36pm
I'm not the expert Pahul on SEO. However that i think that you should go in for both once and see the results. Then a month later repeat. If it's getting your incrementally more business, then you should do this continuously. Better I think that you tie-up with some existing apps, such as Jabong or Mynta, so you can ride on Myntra's base--of course you'll have to share the incremental income, but at least more will know of you, than perhaps through advertising.

Anumeha asked

Hello Harsh, I am a software consultant by profession. I have done my MCA and working in IT industry for a decade now. I still feel im not doing what i actually want to do. And still have lot of potential which is unleashed. One of the major reasons is monetory matters. I am trained kathak dancer as well and have a visharad degree in kathak and won many awards at various competitions in school and college. But im out of touch with it for a decade now. I wish to get back to dancing because that is something which comes naturally to me. I wish to start something of my own. But i am not sure how to go about with it. I dont have any business plan in mind. All i am thinking currently is to join an institute and get back to dancing again. But how to start something(classes to start with baby steps) of my own? I can only invest weekends currently as i have a full time job and cant leave it due to various laibilities. But wish to start dance classes which pays me back and i feel good about it. And can slowly over the period of time convert into a full time proffession. So that my finances are not effected. Looking forward for your valuable inputs. Regards, Anumeha.
10 Aug 2016, 10:07am
Anumeha, It's wonderful that you have a dream beyond your job. And, indeed you must chase your dream--first as a hobby, then as a part-time income, and then full-time fun! So, you're right to first look out for dance classes. Come back to it. See if you're still good at it--and check if you have the potential to be great at it--and by great I mean among the top hundred in the country in the next ten years. You won't know the answer to that till you spend a few months of weekends getting back into dance. Suppose you realize that whatever you do, you won't make it into the top 100, you should still not lose hope, but see if you can find a career around the Kathak dance business. Can you manage a dance troupe? Can you do the marketing for an existing troupe? Since you're in IT, can you create websites and videos that showcase the best dancers? Can you create an app that teaches Kathak dancing? So either you should aim to the reach the top--within ten years, but within five years start dancing half-time and working half-time. Or, within a year you'll know that you have to move to Plan B. Again, that will take a few years of going from part-time to full-time. But whatever you do, stay with your dream. If money is a constraint, say, you have a loan to pay, then perhaps, you could take a high-paying (and high-stress) job for the next two years and pay back 90 percent of your loan, before going down the dance path--because that path even ten years later will never pay you what you'd otherwise earn ten years later. So you have to balance what you need now between what you need later. Your profile tells me that you're in Gurgaon and that you like baking. Why don't you try to sell your baked products--cakes, buiscuits, etc.--online and make some money, which in turn can give you additional income. But between baking and dancing--I'd suggest dancing.

Dear Vaishnavi, For software work from home, you can look at either going to a website like Sheroes or signing up for individual hourly-based assignments from websites like Mechanical Turk or others that act like aggregators for individuals to do outsourcing. For other fields, I suggest you ask yourself what are you good at and focus on that. Are you good at cooking? If so, can you cook from home? Are you good at looking after children? Then run a crèche. Do you like writing--then perhaps you can edit college textbooks in software programming?

PresentIy I have settled dowm in Bangalore. My educational qualification: BSc with botony zoology and chemistry, B.Ed from Durgabhai Deshmukh college, Hyderabad, M>A in English Literature, P>G Diploma in Materials Management and P.G Diploma in Marketing Management from Annamalai University.

I would like use my experience of past and keep myself busy with activities which will be of good help to me. Please may I get some clarifications for my ideas mentioned above.
03 Aug 2016, 05:43am
Dear Mrs. Vimala, you could do four types of work from home. 1) For any large NGO, you can support their accounts and purchase teams. Once the data entry has been done by the local accountant, you could verify if everything is correct from your home. You could also similarly help in the marketing work of any such NGO or religious organization--editing their brochure, newsletter, and even website. The text files can be sent to your home, and you can edit it and where necessary, improve it--and then send it back to the main person. 2) You could do the same efforts in purchasing, accounts, and marketing for any startup you know in Bangalore. They could send you all their vouchers or all their documents and you can check if it's all properly done. 3) You could teach some MBA coaching class students from home. 4) Given your interests in English literature and science, you could join a publishing house that prepares textbooks for college students--again, you could write the textbook or help someone else in writing the textbooks.

Hello Mr. Harsh, I am Charul Patel. I am an Electrical Engineer. I have experience of 2 years in Control panel manuf. industry as design and costing engineer. I worked in small scale industry and the working environment there was not suitable to me. Then I started working in a BPO as back office support for eBay UK & NA. I left that job too after 1 year as I got married. I was upset with my career during the job period and now i am searching for engineering jobs as i am still upset with my fluctuating career path. I always wanted a job in MNCs but, not getting any. frustrated a lot but still really want to work hard to set my career goals and become a successful engineer. kindly guide me in this situation what should be done.
28 Jul 2016, 10:25am
There may be many jobs in electrical engineering. Big and medium companies are designing power plants. Big companies are erecting power plants. Medium companies are doing the independent operations and maintenance of power plants. Then there's power transmission where again big and medium companies are involved. Finaly, there's distribution of electricity, where many medium-sized players have got licenses to distribute power and do the metering, billing, and collection in small towns and cities. The only challenge in this is that many jobs will be field jobs, away from big cities. This is true at the start of a career. Since your married, please first see if you can leave your home and go work on a project. If you can't get a job in electrical engineering, then you should study for an MCA and join a software company (Not a BPO). At least these are in big cities.

Best way Rhythm to get justify your time gap is tell the truth that your previous employer almost cheated you. But you should fill this time gap. Perhaps you can enroll in a part-time course.

I want to work Part time to Manage kid as well ..Should i go for any Weekend Courses in Writing First and if yes,where i can Persue that ? Would doing a master degree in hindi Literature or so would get me more money to help my husband Financially. .Waiting for your Valuable Guidance.
14 Jul 2016, 04:45pm
Meenu, where do you see yourself writing in Hindi? In newspapers and magazines as a journalist? At a publishing house? Or on some website? None of these pay well, especially for part-timers. If you wnat to write a novel in Hindi, that's one option. To earn any serious money in writing, you have to be a novelist or a film script writer (go to Mumbai) or be in advertising--and in all of these you have to be really popular to earn well. Otherwise, if your goal is to earn money to support your family, then I suggest you return to coding for now, and in your little spare time, start writing a blog, send in your articles to newspapers, and gradually build that up. Maybe in two to three years, you'll have established a name, which should get you a reasonable income from writing after which you can quit your job. Studying Hindi literature will not teach you how to write better. What would teach you is practical writing, so if you can go and join some Hindi publication--not as a reporter but as a sub-editor whose job is to check the grammar and to ensure that the article fits in the space available.

Laxmi asked

Hi Mr. Harsh, I am Laxmi Singh, an Recruitment specialist with an exp of 5 yrs. I worked for a lot of recruitment firms in Non It vertical recruitment. After marriage, I started a recruitment Agency of my own and also acquired few good clients for whom I use to work exclusively. After an year, I got pregnant and slowly my work efficiency reduced and after baby I stopped working as I could not squeeze out time for work. Baby was our first priority. All the money earned from my business was invested by my hubby to buy and flat. SInce the money was not enough, he took a home loan too. Now the present situation is that my kid is 2 and joining school soon. So I want to start working soon, more because of financial reasons. Considering this, what would you suggest : should I work towards restarting my recruitment agency once again or should I go for taking up freelancing assignments into recruitment. Also how should I go about client acquisition for my own agency?? Looking forward to your valuable suggestions. Regards, Laxmi Singh
13 Jul 2016, 05:00am
Laxmi, Given that you have a home loan, I think it would be better if you take up a proper job that gave you a regular salary--so that it can help pay your installments. Your job would be in HR recruitment I suppose for an ITO or BPO or any other large company. You stay in Mayur Vihar, so pick Noida-based companies close by. Of course, this means that you'll need childcare at home to look after you kid--but if you can organize that--or send the child to a daycare after school. Your own business you can restart perhaps after five to six years, when your kid's eight or nine and needs help with homework and requires you to be at home. A regular job will also quickly get you back into the "business". If you can't do a regular job because no one's there to look after the kid, you should retart your agency--not much difference from doing business under an agency or doing three or four freelance assignments every month--better to do such assignments under the name and banner of your agency--at least that way you're able to build the brand.

dolly asked

Hi sir, I currently am a full time mom to a two year old baby but before her birth I had been a very active soapmaker. I made soaps for my own use and sold a few to some family and friends. I now want to take the big plunge and want to start a brand of mine. please guide me for the same. thanking you.
11 Jul 2016, 02:02pm
That's an interesting idea Dolly. Since you stay in U-Block, you're next to Cyber City, so what you could do was tieup with one of the offices there and start by selling your soaps to the staff of that office over one or two lunches. Based on how well that takes off, you can then go to one more office and then one more office and finally, if you can open a small kiosk somewhere in Cyber City. Otherwise you can open a kiosk in the Phase 3 Metro station and sell your soaps there. You have to decide who you're targeting and what brand would it be. If it's women, then also which sub-group: mothers, young professionals, students, who. Accordingly, you can choose a name and the appropriate packaging.for your brand of soap. Where will you make it? How many soaps a day can you make? How much money do you want to spend on marketing and packaging and in renting kiosk--you should answer these questions apart from who the target market is.

Hello sir, myself ratandeep kohli, in have just saw everybody's query they r very much educated but m only graduate and done computer basic course and my typing speed is very good and m married since last 12 Yrs due to some family reason i couldn't continue my job, i was administrative incharge in moolchand hospital, now i want to do something at home only realated to some typing work, can u suggest me please, because i have two small children and very aged inlaws, waiting for ur reply asap.
11 Jul 2016, 08:23am
Ratandeep, please don't worry about whether others are more educated. After all, you're also a graduate, and that's good enough. Normally home-based typing work is around transcription. That is you listen to someone's speech (or interview or dictation) and you convert that into text. To do that you should search online for transcription services. And to them you should offer your services. They email you the audio file. You type it out and send them back the word document. Normally, they pay per page--but they deduct for errors--so you have to listen carefully. Another option may be to tie up with a law firm: they often have a lot of contracts and stuff that have to be typed. So they can pass on some of their work to you for typing.

Hi Harsh, I am working in IT Company as HR, Now i wanted to do something my own in food Sector. PLs guide me.
06 Jul 2016, 07:18am
Jyoti, there are many things to do in the food sector. 1) Start a full-meal-cooked-at-home service that's delivered to others through an app. 2) Prepare and sell snacks from home. 3) Work first as a chef in a good restaurant, and then start your own restaurant after five years. 4) Take charge of the catering of an institution--say an office or a school, where quality is not so important, but adhering to a fixed price. Whatever you do, figure out what's unique about your food. Is it about one cuisine? Is it only about sweets and cakes? Also, learn how to be consistent--can't have high quality one day and poor quality the next day. If you're serious about this, learn cooking through some course, and then get into this full-time.

03 Jul 2016, 02:24pm
Megha, That's a bunch of things that you could do. But you have to pick one based on what's your top-most interest, or the one that pays you the most in the future, or the one that's consistent (suppose you have EMIs to pay), or the one that lets you travel the most. Sort these ideas into whatever criteria works for you and then pick one (or two). When you do that, then figure to be successful in this--and one way of defining success is to be among the top 1,000 in India in that field in ten years and top 100 in twenty years.. For that you might need to do a specialized course, or work in some entity before you start on your own. Once you've done you're thinking, you should send me another question--or call me at 9910640404 to figure out the next step.

If she's good in accounts and book-keeping she can do the basic accounting and book-keeping from home of a small organization--shop, school, NGO, etc. and get a small stipend. Suggest she complete her law degree. That way she can get a job as a lawyer's associate.

Hello Mr. Harsh, Hope you are doing good. I am a chocolatier with my special and limited edition of home made chocolates. I have been promoting my chocolates through friends, family and so on word of mouth.. It was at a very small scale that I was doing it till now. But with the kind of response and reviews that I have come across for my chocolates, I believe it would not be right if I do not take it further on a larger scale. I would like to know if you could help me with some idea to promote my product. Currently I would not be in a position to invest a high monetary figure for promotion. I am really keen on taking it ahead and making it a full time career. Please advise. Thanks & Regards Anila
21 Jun 2016, 10:00am
Anila, You can tie up with one luxury property for them to give your chocolates free. Say, the Leela hotel or the Rolls Royce dealer. They buy from you, give their packaging, and distribute. This requires you to visit these fancy places with a sample of your chocolates and discuss with their marketing manager, how your chocolates can add value to the existing services (hotel, very expensive cars, etc.) Another option is to sell this through an ecommerce site, but you'll need to be able to deliver this across the country. A third option is to go in a partnership with someone outside Thane, who acts as your marketing and distribution agent--so you tie up with someone in Pune or some one in Bangalore or someone in Delhi. It's that person's job to make the market and to sell--of course that person will, in turn, keep a good proportion of the extra income. Fourth, around the elite malls of Thane and Powai, see if you can get a small pop-up store for one day. Fifth, if any of this succeeds, you'll need to raise capital so that you can go from home-made (small batches) to home-controlled, but not home made to get medium batch sizes. Hope these ideas work for you. Let me know what you plan to do next, because this is interesting--and I'd certainly like to buy one of your products!

HI mam.After 5 yrs experience in IT as a techie i wish to switch to Digital Marketing.Although the switch seems to be dicey for me as what i know is to move ahead and reach to the top but whether this is the domain that would be helpful or not ,i dont know.Please guide me through.
17 Jun 2016, 07:55am
Monika, I'm a man--so no "Mam"! Why do you want to do digital marketing? This is a narrow field and what is your goal at the end of ten years: is it to start your business, or to work for a big company? Before you specialize in digital marketing, which you can always do a course in, I suggest that you first do an MBA and get a broad understanding of business with a focus on marketing--all parts of marketing. After which you can work in digital marketing if that interests you. With a marketing MBA, you have more options later in your career, even if you are only into digital marketing for the next five years. So, if you have to study, study for an MBA. And a good MBA and a good job will pay you more than being only a specialist digital marketing person in an agency.

Hello Harsh, It's such a pleasure to see your achievements and the various fields you have catered to. It is really inspiring for people like me. I have over 10 years of experience is various finance roles ( process re-engineering SAP FI, financial analyst) with HP. How ever had to take one and half year's break to tend to my baby I would like to head back to corporate world, but have not been getting any offers. Could you please guide should I go for any professional courses like CMA or pursue SAP FI which I have exposure to. Will I be starting from where I left or would it be a new beginning all together if I pursue further studies? Please guide
25 Apr 2016, 04:48pm
You should figure which part of the corporate world do you want to spend the next ten to twelve years in: what excites you and challenges you. Is it HR? Is it marketing? Is it IT? Is it R&D? It could also be working in operations, perhaps for a non-profit. Also, what's the goal at the end of ten to twelve years? Is it to be the CXO of a small company/SVP of a medium company or is it to get a job, but primary focus is on your child. If the primary focus is for the kid, then stay in IT--do your SAP FI and stay in the same area with whatever convenient job you get at whatever convenient level. If the focus is to climb the corporate ladder, even at the cost of being a mom (perhaps you have parents or other sources of care), then the next question would be which area: HR/Marketing/Finance, etc. Based on that, you should do a course and start afresh. Of course, you won't start completely afresh, but your bosses may be younger than you! So ask yourself what's the goal and what's the constraint--and then tailor your studies and subsequent work accordingly.

Deepti, You should try smaller companies or non-profits. It doesn't matter if you get a lower starting salary. Once you're back in the corporate world, you can shift after a couple of years. If you're in Gurgaon, there will be many IT opportunities. You also have a CFA, so perhaps you could apply for some KPO job in a foreign bank's back office.

What you could do is enroll for a PhD in Bangalore and simultaneously teach HR in a Tier 2 business school in Bangalore or around it, where they may not consider you as a full professor (no PHd), but at least you start getting academic experience. Once you've done your PhD, then you can start work at an IIM.

Dear Ms. Asha, please do send me your resume. Depending on the city that you want to be in, you should look at something in services marketing--hotels, phone companies, banks, cinema chains, airlines, and even media. These all need good marketing people, especially those who have foreign experience, and can apply the latest techniques in an Indian setting. Also, such companies are more likely to offer flexible times. My email is harsh dot email at gmail dot com. Of course, there are also choices like startups, but then you shouldn't treat this high-intensity roles just as jobs. Rather you should choose a startup, only if you passionately care for the work that that startup does. So, first figure your home base. Then figure your service area. Then figure how much time do you want to give--full-time or part time?

Kindly help me out , it will be very much help ..
28 Jul 2015, 12:56pm
Dear Rachana, First, I'm unfortunately, not a "Mam", but a "man"! I'd suggest that Hyderabad has many engineering companies, especially civil engineering. GMR, Nagarjuna, IVRCL, etc. Earlier they were doing badly because of the infrastructure slowdown, but now business is picking up. Since you're an engineer with project management skills, you could consider joining them in their corporate office. Alternately, you should see if there's a government agency either in Telengana or Andhra Pradesh that may be looking for people with your experience to hire on a short-term contract--either to build the new Amravathi city or for some other project. Finally, you could also consider joining some of the large IT companies in their civil engineering work, which is again the building of their new offices and campuses. Hope that helps.

Hello Harsh, Hope you are doing fine. I am a working from last 12+ years in different domains in BPO, KPO ITES for the sake of being independent. I am also a artist for handmade crafts, recently quit my job of a US banking sector (BPO) for night shifts . Now being rejected from the same sector for being "Over experience" tragedy but true for Indian mentality of hiring process.... Please suggest and guide.....Thanks.
21 Jul 2015, 08:26am
Dear Ms. Agrrawal, do you want a steady job with regular income or do you want to pursue your entrepreneurial dream. If you want to focus on selling handmade crafts, then you can try various internet platforms. Internationally, the best site is etsy.com. Domestically, snapdeal has launched a sub-site or an app called shoppo (I think: please google) for selling handmade staff. However, if you need a steady job (home loan to pay, or any other reason), then forget the BPO and KPO role--these are entry-level jobs. Find a regular job in a regular company in the city that you're in and climb the ladder from there. Alternatively, if you're family situation permits it, go do an MBA at a very good college (IIM for the PGP-X course or ISB) and get a high-paying job after that. Basically, figure out what your dream is for the next ten years--is it salary, income, no more home loans, regular time (so that you can devote more to your family) or is it building your brand as one of the best makers and sellers of crafts. Of course it's not either-or. You can focus on your salary and family needs now and then ten years later look at other dreams.

RIDDHI asked

Hello Harsh, I am French-English Bilingual. After working for 4 years with hospitals as French Interpreter and Translator, I have started my own medical tourism firm. Due to lack of financial support I cannot travel to countries for searching patients. I would like to explore the options which can help me increase the number of patients to India for treatment through my firm. Regards, Riddhi
06 Jul 2015, 11:17am
Riddhi, You should focus on one country. If you understand French, then you'll probably have to make one trip to France to talk to partners who can help you bring patients to India. Second choice is to tie up with an existing medical tourism firm and look after their French business (so give up your own business to become an employee). I know someone who's doing this for the last five years from Chennai, so I can connect if you want to. Third option is to relocate yourself to France for a couple of years as an employee of a French hospital chain--to manage their outward medical tourism to India or to other countries. Fourth, to build your contacts, and if it's difficult to travel to France, then you could again try to relocate to Thailand (closer, cheaper) and work for one of the large hospital chains there, which specialize in medical tourism. Finally, if none else works, then again give up your frim and work in Apollo or Medanta for a couple of years. Also, you should look at online marketing in French (so spend money on advertising on the Internet) to sell your firm's services to French citizens directly, if you don't want to go through the institutional route. Is healthcare in France driven by insurers or is it driven by individuals. If insurers, then you should meet them in the one trip that you MUST make, if you decide to stay independent. Also, what French language medical facilities exist in India? Do you know which doctors or hospitals provide such services to patients from France?
