I'd like to apply for a financial accountant, or a primary/ secondary mathematics teacher, or a project manager... The only job that is related to my studies is project manager, but I'd like to do some courses that might allow me to apply for the other ones. The idea is to widen my opportunities and expand my skills to different areas from those that I studied...

Among above position, I would like to be a marketing manager to lead an international team. I can speak English and understand other people who also speak English. As a marketing manager I could earn more money for my family even though I should take more responsibilities for my team, but I do not afraid. It would be a great honor if I could work in a German company as I learn German people are very serious and responsible.

Personally, i love to teach others because I have been working as a Lecturer of ICT from last 5 years.I think this is a novel profession and overall feedback of a good teacher is praiseworthy. However, it varies from person to person which occupation will be perfect for him but this is people passion to find out his career path form his own interested fields. Whatever, we are thinking about our goal ultimately without good work and understanding it is cumbersome to reach the destination,
