I got an engineering degree in CS. However, I was frustrated with the life and the kind of work hours the job entailed. I wanted to shift it. That is when CareerOppt helped me and suggested that I go a for an MBA degree. I studied hard and cracked the MBA exam and am now doing much better.
I took up science in plus two, with bio, but was notable to crack the medical entrance examination. All my friends got into good colleges and I decided to drop a year and try again. I became completely disillusioned in that situation, I got in touch with CareerOppt and they helped me immensely.
