Google is your best friend & mentor
It happened recently, a weeks ago that I had to give a demonstration on a software that though I added in my Biodata for adding value to it but wasn’t aware with its practical use, all I knew was its thoery. I only had 3 days in my hands. I somehow googled it and stumbled upon a demonstration video on YouTube. Wow! I can’t forget the sound of applauses I received when I finished my demonstration. That was it! Thanks to Google! I consider it my best friend. And if you are one of those like me who consider Google a friend & a mentor, handling digital marketing ventures will be easier and interesting for you.
However! I must confess! One should never mention a skill set anywhere if you aren’t mastering it or else mention the level of familiarity with it! 🙂
