I joined Automobile Engineering at Madras Institute of Technology, Chennai in 2015. During the 3rd year of my engineering, my life started a down curve.
It all started with the idea of joining Civil services, and I joined an academy. And started preparing for the UPSC examination. Even after spending 2 years on that, I made no progress. Later, I understood that this is not my area to start because I don’t even touch my books and notes. How silly I was, right?
I joined that course because of all the glittering stuff like “how great UPSC is,” “you are going to be an administrator”, and so on. I am an analytical personality, who sees playing with numbers as fun. For me, all the theories were like sleeping pills at that time, especially economics subjects. Oh god.
So I made the very big decision to quit this course and started searching for jobs in my core field (Automobile). It terrified my parents, that I came back to a job search from UPSC. Honestly speaking, they lost faith in me 🙁
Here comes the next big hit on my career, With zero experience in my core field, there is no one willing to offer me a job. All my interviews failed because of the same reason, zero experience. My days became tougher.
Then I started to search for a job and finally, I landed a sales job at an ed-tech company, I worked there for 20 days and then I quit that too because I felt no future in that job.
While I was preparing for the above job interview, I did a Google certification course on “The Fundamentals of digital marketing“. this course had a huge impact on digital marketing, then I started doing courses in Digital marketing on Coursera and uploaded a lot of course certificates on LinkedIn.
Even after that, I was rejected in many interviews because of zero experience in digital marketing. Then I started freelancing. As everyone does.
Here is Sasi Ram as a Freelancer:
Then I started freelancing, I was handling my friend’s Instagram business account, and I created posts, reels, and stories for that account. Even though the follower count was low, his sales grew a little high with Instagram. And then from his referral, I had my first client who paid me for handling her social media accounts. I charged 5000 rupees per month. That was my first Income from Digital Freelancing, then her brother wants me to edit his YouTube videos, which is my second income.
Got into the Job:
Until now, I didn’t have much hope for my freelancing career since I lack experience in finding clients and sources to do so in the market. Therefore, I made the decision to get a job first and learn the basics properly. Once I gain enough confidence to find and handle more clients, I will start freelancing again.
So I started searching for Jobs, as I mentioned earlier, people aren’t ready to hire a guy like me with zero experience. That stage pushed me to start my own website and apply the strategies and techniques on my website to gain practical expertise in my field. I started to post blogs, social media posts, wrote on LinkedIn, and a lot more.
In India, No one was ready to hire me even after the efforts I have made, even if someone was ready to hire me, they proposed a salary of 5000 rupees per month, that’s it. which is literal exploitation and I felt inferior. Then I decided to relocate, I came to Dubai. Yeah, Habibi Mode.
In my experience, the job market in Dubai is not noticeably distinct from that of India, people here still prefer experienced candidates, that too UAE or Gulf Experience. But, Luckily I got into a startup. Guess what? They hired me by checking my content on Linkedin. Finally, I got into a job. This was my life-changing moment, they were my gateway for my digital marketing career and my ambition.
My ultimate aim is to help at least 1000 people who are suffering without a job as I suffered, within 5 years. That’s why I started this blog to help jobless people to taste their first income. I have been there in these people’s positions and I know how painful it will be, I don’t want people to suffer like that. To read more about my plans check here.
Pure happiness can be seen in other person’s happiness.
Your new friend,
