I made a lot of mistakes when I was a student. I continued making mistakes for several years, even with several years of industry experience.

But most dangerously, I didn’t know that I was making mistakes! Once I started digging deep into my career and soft skills, then I realized my mistakes and worked on those.


  • Within less than a year, I got much better positions; my salary increased a lot
  • I earned various people and soft skills that were not known to me before.
  • I positioned myself as an expert in my areas of work
  • My work became much more meaningful, impactful, enjoyable, and less stressful.

It hurts me when I see many people making the same mistakes as I did.

To share my learnings, I have started the “Pragmatic Career” newsletter, where I aim to give practical examples of my career mistakes, actionable tips; so that you can implement those in your life and gain results.

Subscribe to the newsletter, comment, and leave your thoughts so that I can make it much better and you can get more benefits.

And share the newsletter with your network so that others can also benefit and we can positively impact this world. You know, sharing is caring!

Here is the 1st issue of the pragmatic career newsletter:
