Question 1: Are you still into Engineering, or have completely taken a switch to Digital Marketing?
Dp Vishwakarma: I have graduated as an Electrical Engineer but now completely working as a Digital Marketing Consultant helping businesses to expand their online existence through the proper use of SEO & other Digital Marketing tools. If I talk about my past working experience, I started my career at an early age of 17 at the MLM Company. In spite of being a B.Tech, I didnâ€™t want to go into the technical field. I wanted to do something different and seemed interesting to carry forward my career. This is when I stepped into the marketing field (well, itâ€™s more like a by chance). I was pressurized for doing MBA, but I preferred certification in Digital marketing course. Today, I consider myself lucky to be listed at the top of Digital marketing Consultant in India on Google. Presently I own a successful Digital Marketing Agency~ KeywordsFly and have a big list of happy clients around India & abroad.

I think engineering & Digital marketing are somewhat interrelated to each other. Just like in engineering you fundamentally resolve issues/problems, in the same way, Digital marketing field also uses your fundamental skills to resolve the errors while finding new ways to apply existing knowledge.
