Sample letter

Dear Tamanna

Yesterday I got your email and I feel really honored that you asked me for career advice. While I am not an expert on this, I will try to help.

You have always been passionate about music and you possess immense talent too. Learning music at university might help you to turn that passion into a profession. These days, people are spending huge amounts of money to learn vocal music and musical instruments. Who knows? You could even become a playback singer in Bollywood after completing this course.

On the other hand, business management is also a great choice. Plenty of jobs are available for qualified MBAs with excellent salaries. Once you have learned the various aspects of running a business, you can even start your own company. Having said that, if I were in your position, I would choose business management for two reasons. First, it gives greater career opportunities and second, music can be pursued part time with this course.

Hope this letter resolves your confusion.

Best regards,

Archita Shah
