By the way, could you please share what career objectives/goals you have set for yourself and what kind of business your father are into. Also what role you are playing there and about your subject in MBA that you forget to share with us.

Second, you under working your father (Businessman), so you must have earned some good knowledge and experience of life from the business perspective, that can help you in many ways but if you wanna establish yourself on a corporate level, for this you have to make attempts first. Subsequently, you can learn and move ahead towards your career line.

Hello Dhaarani,

Anyone with any professional degree could get a chance to work in any Corporate.

With an MBA in Finance and Marketing if you are assisting your father in his business

It is good from an experience point of view.

You said you are looking after Administration.

Are you involved in Marketing and Finance functions also ?

Even a limited exposure in these fields will help you gather

relevant experience and keep your chances bright to switch over to any Corporate.

By the way, Bio Mass Briquette Manufacturing and Marketing is an upcoming trend.

Bio Mass is a renewable energy source and could be a sought-after one in the future.

Policies are framed at National and every State level for producing and using different

forms of renewable energy. India being an Agricultural country Bio mass will have

a significant contribution in renewable energy. As long as fodder requirement of

cattle is met, Bio Mass will find an organized outlet towards energy generation.

The other relevant points are --

How is the present market being served?

What is the current competition in Bio Mass Production & Marketing.

How easy or difficult it is to enter to this industry.

The way you have described it appears to be a small scale industry.

Advantage of working in a small scale industry is, you are in the thick of all functions.

Say, Raw Material Procurement, Manufacturing, Packing, Inward and Outward Logistics,

Administration, Marketing, Employees, Customers, Suppliers, Systems etc.

If you work as a full time employee/ partner you would get to know something of everything.

However someone starting his/her career in a Corporate has to be clear about the function

In which he/ she would be working. After the initial training, one has to work in a specific function

for several years before switching over to other departments. It is also possible that even after

many years a person may rise well but it will be only in the same function to become a specialist in his/ her domain.

Mostly towards the end of one’s career one gets a chance to become a Generalist.

Many retire as a functional specialist.

You need to make a choice as to how long you want to work with your father


How soon you want to join a Corporate.

Dear Dharani
What is your goal. Please decide yourself about your industry of preference in which you would like to go ahead in your career.
If you are prefering to go in Manufacturing Industry, then you have selected the correct path. Please gain thorough knowledge about your family business, assist your father in all his business matters, learn the business tactics and try to improve the business in higher level, so that you can give more employment to the society where you have established your industry.
Further you can do some HR Related course also, so that you can have complete control on Accounts, Marketing and HR Department of your family run business.
Wish you all the success.

Hello Dhaarani,

Further to what other members suggested, there are a few aspects/factors you need to keep in mind.

Your Qualification is MBA(Finance & Mktg), while your overall experience in your father's company would be in Administration. Being an MBA, I am sure you note the disparity between the 2--from a recruiter's point of view. So, whenever you decide to appear for an interview later with corporates, this would come-out glaringly--meaning you will be limiting your choice to EITHER Administration OR Finance/Marketing. Again, since you, as of now, don't have any exp in your qualifying specializations, the chances of getting a corporate job would, at best, be as a fresher.

Coming to the options you have, one BIG advantage you have is that the present company is your father's. So you would, I presume, have a broader flexibility in terms of choosing the functions you want to work in. In addition to Admin, suggest handle one of your 2 qualifying specializations--Marketing OR Finance. that would widen your options later.

All the Best.

I hope you have read my response to you and have gone through the link i provided because i believe you must read it once.
I second, TS would like to say that you must focus on your career line and function. instead of participating in Administrative work you needs to show your involvement in Finance & Marketing. Also I would suggest you to please set your definite goals for professional life first
To establish yourself with Corporate must be focused and If you wants to go for JOB instead of handling Finance or Marketing Work at your own company or with your Father's Business, needs to apply jobs at other side and give a good start to your career.
TS has clearly define the advantage that you have and must grab with your both hands.
Best of Luck
