I want to become an entrepreneur
Firstly, I suggest you read the book ‘Connect the Dots’ by Rashmi Bansal. You’ll understand how one can start a business in the face of challenges. You need to come up with an idea. Who are your target customers? It need not be a fresh idea. But you need to come up with a unique way of running it. Explore opportunities in Boutique, Beauty Parlor, Fitness Centre (Gym), Consultancy, Internet Business, Restaurant, Daycare/Crèche, Toys/Gift Shop
Sir, I've completed B Tech (CSE). I'm not interested in the software field, but would like to start a small business. How do I go about it?- Sruthi, Warangal

Dear sir, I have been working as a SGT for 16 years. I'm interested in writing career related stuff especially in English. I have just joined DCE (Diploma in Creative Writing in English). Please suggest me a strategy and the suitable online training resources. - Madhav, Hyderabad
I suggest you to start writing a blog and use other social media tools like Facebook, Twitter, etc. There’s another platform called Quora, where you can involve people to answer/comment. This is how you can reach the crowd and improve further. Approach print media and explain how your writings will bring value to their business and how the target audience will be benefited. You can also try this: https://www.udemy.com/becoming-a-writerexercises/ ; http://www. craigvalentine.com/.
Apart from this, start working as intern and understand the market too. Take a look at this link http://www.twenty19.com/internships/content-writing-journalism-internships.
You can also attempt free content writing tests here https://www.wiziq .com/tests/content-writing.
I completed MCA, now I am working as software professional. You know very well about IT Sector, there is no security. So I decided to do professional courses either CA or ICWA or CS. Please suggest about this. - Govind, Madhapur
Govind, you already done MCA and doing a job in software field, right! Why are you planning to switch from IT to Chartered Accountant course? Is it because of fluctuations in IT? If it’s just because of fluctuations in the industry, you need to be competent enough to face all the difficult times. Moreover, nothing is secure and permanent in personal/professional life. As you know, to do CA/CS course it takes around 3 to 5 years. Do you have commerce background? Or can you cope and learn and clear all the subjects in time. Take a calculated risk before you take a decision. All the best.
I completed my BSc Microbiology, Botany and Chemistry. I want to become a scientist. Please suggest which PG course should I pursue to realise my dream. - Jyotimay, Hyderabad.
I should appreciate you for your career plan. PG without PhD is futile. Chemical research is advancing in India. The institutes in India have world class capabilities in Organic Chemistry and Chemical Biology. Do your PG first in the selected area. The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) University Grants Commission (UGC), etc conduct entrance tests for recruiting into various departments of the government. UGC conducts National Eligibility Test (NET) to determine eligibility for lectureship and for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) for Indian nationals in order to ensure minimum standards for the entrants in the teaching profession and research. The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) conducts the UGC-CSIR-NET for science subjects — Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Mathematical Sciences and Earth Atmospheric Ocean & Planetary Sciences jointly with the UGC. The tests are conducted twice in a year. For candidates who desire to pursue research, the Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) is available for five years subject to fulfillment of certain conditions. UGC has allocated a number of fellowships to the universities for the candidates who qualify the test for JRF. The JRFs are awarded to the meritorious candidates among the candidates qualifying for the eligibility for lectureship in the NET. JRFs are available only to the candidates who opt for it in their application forms. For more details visit: www.ugc.ac.in and www.csirhrdg.res.in. All the best!
