Academics to career-not quite a neatly solved jigsaw puzzleA jigsaw puzzle is solved on neatly slotting the correctly matched pieces together. A particular piece you may think fits into another will turn out not to be so, because then the overall image of the puzzle looks wonky.
Taking this analogy, consider what academic stream and course a student takes up keeping in mind a future career. Was there eventually a neat fit? Or does the student find that the academic path was not in sync with the career he wished for? Maybe it is the case as well that perhaps the career requires further skills for the puzzle to fall in place. Did you end up taking a job that had no relation whatsoever with what you studied? Or did all the puzzle pieces get beautifully slotted as per your wishes and expectations?
