I am in dire need of some guidance from all of you - this guidance pertains to my career path.
I would first like to give you my background - I did my B.A.(Hons) in Statistics and then went on to do Master in Social Work from University of Delhi right now i am in the second year of Master in Human Resources and Organisational Development(MHROD) from Delhi School of Economics
Now that the time has come for me to start working , i am a bit confused about which area to work in. If you all could guide me as to what will be the suitable area for someone with my profile , my confusion would somewhat be clear.
