Nice To See You Here!
Outstanding academic performance throughout the school. Active participation, skill enhancement, and excellent community engagement during college. And then, finally – A great nine-to-five job placement!
Ah! A classic Indian dream! Indeed the one that unfortunately remains a dream for too many.
Well, one possible reason might be because we’ve been dreaming the wrong way till now. Or because we have always been told a pretty sketchy, half-baked, abridged version of the dream.
While in school, we are asked to study hard to be accepted at a great college or university. The university then asks us to be exceptionally active and intelligent, and open to challenges to secure a great job.
Even when that does happen, indeed, most can not feel the worthiness of their years of effort at that job. But, then again we are told to work hard, push harder, be open to new challenges to get what you’ve been chasing your whole life.
You keep doing that whole work-hard-push-harder thing again and again, all over, until you finally realize that the road is a circle, and you keep coming back to where you started.
We do not realize this earlier because this dream is never told that way- the natural way. We are not informed about the struggles; we are unaware of all the side hustle it takes to get somewhere in life.
And then, of course, when the time to hustle comes, we often do not know what to do. We feel strangled and somewhat betrayed.
At the 9to5Job community, we believe that none should be left in such a position without any support. Because the dream is not a lie, it is, in fact, true; just the road to get there is much more imperfect and patchy than what we are known to believe.
This is why we aim to create a community that embraces this imperfectness. Therefore, we view this blog more as a platform to announce the beauty of this complexity.
9to5Job.in was founded in July 2019 to help people find their calling. Unfortunately, not everyone can be satisfied with their job. This makes sense, as in this competitive world, we don’t have the option to keep turning down jobs until we find the one we like. So people settle in for what they get. But this does not mean that they have to limit themselves on it.
That’s what 9to5Job aims to establish. You must have heard that “your only limitation is you.” But, we like to believe that “only you can set yourself free from limitations.”
Coming back to the classic Indian dream, the frustration that comes with this dream needs to be channeled.
We, at 9to5Job, help you find the best way to channel your anger and frustration into something more meaningful and worthy, which is why we put in all our efforts to provide you with the most reliable, fact-based, and feasible career-related information.
The website is a series of blogs to help you with any doubts about academics and your career. From finding the best side jobs to keeping up with the current industry-specific topics to finding the right academic path, learning new skills, how to be your own boss, education tips, we are here for you.
Amazing 9to5Job Team!
Founder & Author at 9to5Job
Sagar Verma is the founder of 9to5Job. He quit his job in 2019 to pursue his passion for blogging and digital marketing. He is very much interested in sharing his little experience of corporate life and money-related topics with all of his lovely readers.
After completing his B.Tech in Information Technology from Shri Ramswaroop Memorial College of Engineering and Management, Lucknow, Sagar moved to Bengaluru, Karnataka to explore career options as a digital marketer. Despite his academic achievements, he was never interested in college placement programs.
In college only, he started reading about blogging. He even started a few blogs like youthlisten.com, whatsappdroid.com, thepepopleinfo.com (I don’t own these domains now) but was never serious with these blogs.
Despite his career in the IT field, he never thought of going into an IT company. But he skilled himself in the field of Digital Marketing.
He moved to Bangalore in search of better openings in the digital marketing industry. His first digital marketing job was at ABC for Technology Training, Bengaluru where he worked for 4 months and provided an incredible increase in the company’s existing traffic.
The idea of serious blogging hit him while working there. He got fired from the job as he would work on learning and writing personal blogs during his office hours even after completing all the work with more than satisfactory results.
Later, he joined Verbinden Communication, Bengaluru as a digital marketing executive where he conceived the idea of 9to5Job. But, again he got fired for the same reasons as during his previous job.
Sagar started looking for a new job but, unfortunately, the pandemic hit our country just the next month and he had to move back to U.P.
Sagar started working as a freelancer then and also expanded his learning horizons. He not only created 9to5Job but took it to a large section of the audience with a common thought process.
Other than 9to5Job, Sagar started one more blog BabyCart (baby products and parenting blog) under the guidance of his cousin.
He is a self-taught freelancer providing his expert services in the field of digital marketing, Google Ads, PPC, Social Media Marketing, and SEO. Sagar is also an Instagram content creator with a following of more than 7K at @sagar.speaks.
He is also a 5-Star Rated Digital Marketing Expert on Fiverr.
Sagar’s journey through his patchy job life and the career that he made for himself during the pandemic inspired the idea of 9to5Job. Sagar has some plans for 9to5Job which he is constantly working on with full determination.
He wants to grow the blog and produce more personalized content for his readers’ liking.
