What do you want to be when you grow up? My English teacher once asked me this question at the end of a class. I’m sure that you too have come across this question some time.
Choosing a career has always been a difficult “job”, however one that everyone has to do sooner or later. You would agree that this becomes a lot easier if we know what all our parents and our friends’ parents do when they go to the office every day.
