Abhishek Tiwari, with many years behind him as a call centre man, left the industry recently despite being promoted to senior manager and recruiting youngsters for his call centre.
He has completely changed his career and seems to be very happy.
"There was a time when our office was cluttered with 500 to 600 people who came for recruitment in one day," he says.
"Today, even after lowering our standards, getting 40-50 people a day was a struggle."
