Being a commerce student, I study subjects like Management, Economics, and Accounts. I would like to become an entrepreneur, that’s why I chose the commerce stream.
3.Is it a popular course at your university?
It’s a popular course because today’s youngsters have a huge inclination towards business. Most of them want to own a startup. And the best way to become an entrepreneur is to study commerce.
4.Do you enjoy studying it?
I like most of the subjects. I have a keen interest in Management and Accounting and I enjoy making balance sheets. However, I find Economics boring.

The most troublesome part is to remember so much data and figures, especially in a subject like Economics, where a sizeable part of learning is all theoretical, but you cannot add anything from your side.
9.What would like to study in the future?
After doing graduation, I will pursue a Master’s in Business Administration from a renowned university.
10.Why did you choose your university?
I chose it for two reasons. First, it is close to my hometown, so it is very easy for me to commute. Second, the placement record of this institution is good. Thousands of my seniors from this institution are working in Multinational companies at a handsome salary package.

4.Are there lots of Content Writers in your City?
My City is known as an IT hub. There are thousands of companies dealing with IT related services. Since Content Writing work is of paramount significance for any IT company, content writers are in great demand. That’s why it is a burgeoning field, and there are an enormous demand and supply of content writers.

7.What was your first day at work?
It was challenging. My mentor gave me a brief regarding my prime responsibilities, and on the very first day, my manager assigned me the daunting task of writing content for a new website of a prestigious client. Although it was a hectic day, I still enjoyed it.
8.What responsibilities do you have at work?

10.What is your typical day like at work?
I start my day at 9 am by replying to the client’s emails. After that, I research writing the content as per the requirement. To reduce complaints, I do a quality check of the tasks by the interns. From 3 pm-5 pm, I do proofreading the articles. Post proofreading, I submit my work and leave the office at 6 pm.
11.What would you change about your job?
Web content authors are the backbone of any IT organization. However, the salary package that the company provides us is less compared to the payout given to the employees of other departments like Sales, Human Resources, and Workforce management. I think the management team should take this informed decision of paying us on par with other departments.
