  1. Abhinay Kumar Singh says

    wow, i am really amazed. EACH AND EVERYTHING IN THE LIST IS EXACTLY THE SAME WHICH I KEEP ON THINKING!! If i would have written the post it would have been exactly the same!

    I am a b.tech mechanical graduate 2012 batch. Not much jobs in the field, neither do i search very seriously. I have a problem, lots of extra curricular activities. I always wanted to be a cricketer, but never got any support from parents. Now age is not on my side. Even if I watch cricket matches on Television, i cannot stop myself imagining playing cricket for my team. So now I don’t even watch matches.

    My second interest is music. I play keyboard, learnt of my own, but not a pro, can play lead of any song. I play guitar as well, that also learnt of my own, again not an expert. I can be a pro in both but i cannot see a future in that. My father won’t support me doing that after b.tech! Also i have to think of earning so again music won’t be right for me.

    Next comes my physique, which is God gifted I must say. I realized it when i first visited a gym. My body is very athletic, has got the proper definition, have got abs for which i have never worked out! Within a week my body gets pumped up and encourages me to go for modelling. But again parents won’t support me here as well. I also thought of a career as a personal trainer. But everything at last faces a common problem, that i have done b.tech and now where does this personal trainer thing come from?? So for now, i kept aside this thought as well.

    Now what i see for my future is get a job as soon as possible in any field. Start earning and then invest my own earned money in maybe a portfolio for my modelling. But getting a job is a problem in itself. I want a job in which at least i can have even a little interest. I have searched a lot. Many options came like business analyst, content writer, creative writing, writing for sites like team bhp, carwale, where i need to take a test drive and then compare the cars and write about them, then i also gained interest in journalism, graphic designing also came up as very interesting, then came multimedia design which also covers graphic designing, creative writing is another option which interests me,many a times i thought of becoming a writer, then came 3d animation which has got a good scope and interests me a lot.

    Then another part of my brain thinks of starting my own business. I thought of starting my own spots shop, also i have given a thought of starting a distribution business. I have also had thoughts of becoming an F1 racer, i am really good in racing as well, wanted to be a cyclist, have interest in cosmology, wanted to be a dj,rj, wanted to be an actor and i may be still missing out some things!

    Also i had plans of going abroad in tier-A universities, but for that i need a good job experience, infact a very good project then a very good score in GRE. Again it comes to a job.

    I am not mad. I am just searching for a job, for a thing, which will keep me interested for the next 40-50 years of my life. I know one thing about myself, if i choose a career in which i have interest no one can stop me doing wonders in that field. Thats the reason i want to change my field, did a big mistake on the day of admission in my engg colg.

    Presently I have started preparing for ssc cgl, exam is in april 14th or 21st. Was searching for what to do after b.tech and came up with your page.

    I want to be really successful, i want the world to know me for my work and that is what i am searching for. I don’t even know if you will read all of the above, but i wanted to write and tell this to someone. I need HELP. This age is the age of distraction, students want to do a lot of things, make a lot of money as early as possible, are unstable like me. I know all that. That is how it goes, everyone goes through the same stage..bla bla…..I need some good guidance, a good HELP.

    Thank You

    • Nivedita says

      This is Nivedita a BTech student facing same problem as you
      Don’t know what to do. I’m actually interested in basic science…but I have ended up with engineering (Technological side). Have many ideas and hopes and wishes in mind, but eventually none of them work. But now I have decided that I should take my interest first (basic science and maths).
      So for that I will just try to finish my BTech….even with just pass also ok. I doesn’t want any campus selection or any ranks also. But I will go on with the subjects in which I have interest (maths and science) in other than college time and I am happy now.
      I think you should also join some job in which you will be happy. Then in other time you should pursue your interest (the work which makes you most happy).
      All the best for your future!

          Great to see you back Abhinay. We have revamped the website. So, due to some technical reasons, we’re are forced to change the dates to the comments posted. Apologies.

          Feels great that you have settled now. All the best.

    • Subhashish says

      To all the students who are confused regarding what to do;
      First of all, I don’t understand why you have choosen to do b.tech if you guys have no interest in it.I guess because of money ,right. But why you people don’t understand that money without satisfaction is of no use. Also in today’s world, money will flow if you have perfection in any field. In any field. And perfection can be achieved only if you are damn interested in the work you are doing.
      Always listen to your inner voice. Do not perdue b.tech or m.tech only because someone else is telling you to do it. Listen to the voice of your heart and all your confusion will be removed. Even if you get a job with comparatively last salary you will have personal satisfaction because of which you can excel in your work.
      Watch Sandeep Maheshwari’s life changing seminar for a way out of your confusions. I am also a student like you all and it has motivated me lot.

      • Abhinay Kumar Singh says


        Hey hi, I would like to tell you why people go for b.tech even if they are not interested. The reason you presumed is not correct – “money”. The reason is – ” NO/FALSE GUIDANCE” and “LACK OF AWARENESS” AT THE TIME OF ADMISSION. Some students are fortunate enough to have a mentor in one’s life but some are not. I wont get into the explanation but that is the correct answer in brief.

        The points you have mentioned are very correct but everyone is already aware of these facts now. If you are really concerned then “Parents” are the correct audience I guess, instead of the students. It is the parents who need the actual guidance :)

        All the best (y)

    @abhinay,nivedita and all the people I have a solution for u all . People who r interested in computer courses could do online comp courses in part time in HTML,php,java script,pl SQL,windows xp,windows vista,does,linux,c,c++,c#,Corel draw etc. having practical implementation deep knowledge. Have practical knowledge of these courses and u could get job easily.

  12. Izharul hashmi says
