I am going to share a story of a middle class family in Bangladesh. There are consisting of 5 members in this family. I am elder son of that family. My father was working in Saudi Arabia as worker category. He was only earning person in my family. I was reading a private university in Dhaka. My younger sister read in class 8 and younger brother read in class.
It was 2010: my father came back from Middle East because of political violence. We had not any business in Bangladesh.
We were facing miserable situation. We need money for my universities tuition fees, our livelihood, my younger brother and sister’s academic expense. We had not any bank balance.
My parents tried to hide this sorrows form us. But I felt that we are swimming in middle of sea. We could not see any light house.
After 3 months later, I got jobs as data entry operator with little salary although I was student of computer science. My intention was get jobs at any cost. I worked hard and I stopped university study. Because, I was totally unable to bear university cost. Day was really harder to harder to me. Because it was my first jobs and I had to work more than 11 hours in a day as company’s rules.
I cannot express that miserable situation in typing word. My parents were so much frustrated belongs to remind our future. I am working hard but this work was not enough to bear my family’s expense. My father also searched suitable jobs or business. But he was totally unable to get any opportunity.

I focused that I have completed couple of work and my profile is looking cool. But I need to specialize in a specific sector. I tried to learn SEO. I searched training center. But I could not find practical based SEO training center. Finally I decided to learn SEO by using Internet resource. It was not so hard to me to learn SEO as I am computer science student. At first , I implemented my seo work in my personal web site . This work made me confident and I can see my efficiency of seo.
