Let’s get started…
The life In The Mountains-
Once upon a time, there lived a boy in a small town in the mountains. The area was famous for its wool and dry fruits.
Thus, most people would indulge in their production. The boy’s father was a nuts producer himself; therefore, the boy from his early steps gained adequate knowledge about it.

Inheriting A Business-
Nut production is a great business prospect, as it requires little production cost while a high revenue is generated by selling the product in the main cities.
Every neighborhood kid would grow up to be either a wool collector or a nut producer, as they were already familiar with the process, they needed little training and mapping to get into the field and start earning.
Do It Yourself!
Years passed, and it was the time for the boy to take the family’s economic burden from his father and be the flag-bearer.
His father was reluctant to hand over the business to his son as he felt that his son needed more experience and skills to be a successful trader.
Thus, he requested his son to look out for starting his own business, and if he could impress the father with his business idea, they would merge their businesses later on.
The Serene River-
The boy knew that it was going to be difficult to start his journey as a producer. Most of his friends had taken over their father’s business, and they’re already off for a head start.
The competition was fierce, and any mistake would mean an irrecoverable loss.
After some serious brainstorming sessions near a beautiful river, the boy decided to sell something other than the two primary products.
A Confused Situation-
But what else could he go with?
Living in the mountains meant that there was little to no prospect of setting up a manufacturing factory.
There are often power shortages, and low temperature meant huge fuel reserves were needed to keep things working.
Growing up any crop was nearly impossible as the snow would hold the land covered for some months alongside the mountainous terrain, which required considerable efforts to make it compatible for farming.
Lack of ideas and colossal stress would often drive the boy towards the river as it provided a beautiful scene and was a great source of relaxation, but what the boy didn’t realize at first was how it could be a great source of income.
An Amazing Idea-
Several days later, after losing to the mental pressure, the boy returned to the river and sat by the bank.
On the other side of the bank, he saw some tourists with a fishing rod, their faces looked rejoiced, and their words expressed the love they had for these “rare” fishes.
He observed them for some time and hit upon an idea. The idea was to collect fishes and sell them in cities.
The Golden Days-
The idea was better than the rest, as the business had to face no competition and storing the fishes won’t be a trouble as the weather was cold all around the year.
The next day, he bought some equipment and sat on the bank to collect some fishes; the idea worked out; he had filled his bucket in no time and sat his foot towards the market.
As the fish was a unique one for the buyers, everything he had was sold quickly, and he made a good revenue.
Things Turn Sour-
The same routine followed for some days, and it wasn’t long that the town’s people saw the boy’s business flourish.
The rising profits attracted more people towards the fish selling business; soon, the bank, which was once empty, became a crowded place.
The bank would be filled with anglers, trying their luck to find a good catch and make huge profits. As time went on, the overall yield started to decline drastically.
The number of fishes in the river was no more the same, and the reduced number meant reduced catch, which further harmed the profits.
Story Of Life – Must Watch
First Come, First Serve-
Things turned bleak for the new sellers as they faced colossal competition and rapid reduced depletion, which meant a reduced share of the already reduced profits.
However, it was all right and calm for the boy as he had already made huge profits and a commendable fortune by his business idea.
The Lesson From The Story-
The factual story above is a great lesson for each one of us. The business ideas are multiple operational industries to choose from, the more people involved in an industry, the harder it will be to find a place in them.
It is better to look for a sector that comes with lesser competition.
The world is like a river of opportunities for us; although the options are massive, they would end if we kept missing them—each chance gone means increased competition for the remaining ones.
The Current Situation And Its Solution-
During the pandemic, India’s unemployment rate has risen to an all-time high reaching 27.1% in June; this means that approximately 120 million people are jobless.
Finding a job that offers the right salary package and decent fringe benefits is a treasure for anyone searching for a job.
However, you aren’t the only one looking for the glory; hence you must be equipped with everything that might be required in the pursuit.
In this blog, I consider the “things that you must have” to find your dream job.
Prepare Thoroughly For The Job Interview-
Pre-preparation for the interview can be remarkably effective in acquiring the job. A study from JDP reports that aspirants who are well-prepared for the job interview are more confident and assertive than others.
Now, I am pretty sure that you might be wondering about the best ways to get ready for the interview? Well, the answer is here.
To get into the company or position you desire, I recommend you go through commonly asked interview questions and develop responses to those questions.
Also, to stand out from others, you should thoroughly research the company & interviewer. Lastly, ensure that you have carefully examined the job description.
The more you can align yourself with these details, the more the employer will see you are qualified.
So, prepare yourself for the interview, and you would surely be successful in securing the job.

According to recent research, candidates with better communication, teamwork, and problem-solving skills get the job quicker than others.
The USA has recently introduced a regulation that declares the applicant’s skills will be given priority over a college degree.
The decision by the USA government reflects the need for skills in the race of acquiring the job. Similarly, a private firm in India also prefer candidates with improved skills.
So, if you don’t have a perfect command of your skill, take the time, and polish your talent to secure the top job.
Explore Other Options Too-
Last but not least is exploring all the options. While searching for a job, ensure to avail yourself of every opportunity.
Explore every job recruiting platform, newspaper, company, social media site, and website.
Once you start applying through different media, it will boost the odds of being hired in the least time.
Now, make sure to explore all the options, and you would surely be successful in securing the desired job.
Making India The Hub For Jobs-
These investments by the tech giants would indeed create millions of job opportunities in India.
The outcomes of such investments would be tremendous as they would increase employability in India. Currently, the employability rate in India stands at 39%.
However, experts predict that the employability rate shall jump with such massive investments.
Apart from it, the investment would also sustain the economy of India.
Meanwhile, the government of India should also encourage and fund startups based in India.
If the startups succeed, it wouldn’t only create jobs for the local people and lead to millions of dollars in India’s economy.
India is moving towards a new era of development and economic transformation. It’s the responsibility of us all to support the education responsibility of us all to support education and to create the conditions so that this information can reach every corner of the country.
I believe the information mentioned above would help you find your dream job and add some value to your life.
