Having a decade long experience in working across IT industries, can you tell about your success mantra that has helped you to achieve the success you are having today?
With the success mantra of working consistently, I managed to build a company without an investor, by following an apt plan or strategy. All we need to do is to build a perfect team that can catapult the company's voyage towards

becoming a successful brand, and through this, we can help many people. Helping and solving the problem of the people to make them more aware of the success is what keeps me more motivated to walk daily. Fluctuation in the market has always been a part of the lifecycle of the business, and the businesses can remain afloat in the industry despite the curve balls thrown at them if we keep our priorities intact. My strategy has always been taking small steps and then giving my best to achieve them. I always fix my goals on a yearly basis and then divide them on a quarterly basis, so that we can take small steps to reach our goal.

How was your response to the COVID affected market? What was your role in tackling those challenges?
No doubt, the industry witnessed a lot of debacles due to the pandemic. With almost everything coming down, we took a completely different and innovative approach to keep us on track. Utilizing this period in a completely different way, we have built a very good strategy and introduced some innovative product ideas. Incorporating high tech talent right, we build our social media strategy strong. Making ourselves digitally strong, we maintained virtual engagement with our clients,audiences and our tech community.

Technology is the key driver of the industry, and I have always remained aligned with the ongoing trends of the industry. For me, the turning point was to become an expert in Programming Language as I wanted to become a software architect and build a core architecture for the people. Being technologically proficient, I can deal with any product and this boosted my confidence as a significant technocrat. Also, I learned a lot from different companies starting from small to big enterprises, especially from startups. It takes a lot to build a startup and there are a lot of challenges one has to encounter to take a good product idea to market level. I have learned a lot from my entrepreneurial ventures. I have had my share of successes and failures while managing my team as well as my company through numerous ups and downs. And I'm always learning along the way.

What are your future plans and how do you plan to execute those goals across your company's operations?
Yes, we are planning the global expansion for Tech Jobs Fair, starting with London, Paris, Barcelona, Amsterdam and Dublin. When researching a new city, I always consider the startup ecosystem, company growth and job demand of that area, and deeply contemplate how to leverage all those factors to ascend greater heights. I also check the international migration picture, analyzing how many people move to the city every year.
