Ramesh was working hard, but there were instances where he got stuck in the middle of work and didn’t happen to know what to do next.
Soon he is in pressure to perform well and improve his skills in a better way. But unfortunately, he couldn’t and had been kicked out of a job.
Sadly he went to his friend Ram who is excelling in the field of Digital Marketing and also got a promotion in a short period of time.
Ramesh: I am kicked out of the company. I have no skills and knowledge of digital marketing. I tried to cope up with my seniors, they also try to help me, but nothing works. I am broke.
Ram: Dear Ramesh, don’t worry, things will turn out good soon. All you have to do is to learn the skills of digital marketing.
Ramesh: Have you also learn the skills, but from where?
Ram: Yes, without skills and knowledge, you cannot fill the responsibilities of being a digital marketer. I invested a few months and learned advanced digital marketing course in Mumbai.

Ramesh: Thank you, friend, I will do it ASAP.
After 6 months, Ram meets Ramesh, and the conversation goes like.
Ram: Hello, my friend, how you are holding up!
Ramesh: I am a certified digital marketer trainer and earning a decent salary which is twice more than before. Thank you for your suggestion, my friend.
And soon, they parted ways.
