Changes In The Professional Environment:
Personal Trends, Economies, Countries are changing and global warming has taken precedence in the weather conditions so I guess we must change too. Its more an Employers Market other than the previous years where the employee was in control. Today for 1 job there are multiple applicants.
Life is awesome and one must not take it for granted. First love yourself, then share that love with your loved ones and then the community. Respect your Parents always and be humble. Give and you shall receive triple fold. Sow and so shall you reap. Carve your destiny or someone else will.
I thank God for all the opportunities he has blessed me with. My Childhood, teeanage,College [Siddarth Commerce], Working in Mumbai [Skypak], Working in Saudi[ Controller], Migrating to Canada , Currently working as a JDE Business Systems Analyst. I would change my attitude & decision making
