But he was hesitant and said he also want to pursue graduation. Then I told him that you can do a certificate or diploma course on digital marketing and you can do it along with your studies.

Knowing that he was very happy. Later after 5 years later I met him yesterday on a busy road of Bangalore. I was surprised to see him. His reaction was also same. First I asked him how he was here. Then he described the whole story. After taking the advice of becoming a digital marketer, he pursued the course along with studies. After completing his college he got a job as a digital marketer and came to Bangalore. Many juniors of mine asked me how they can become a digital marketer.
