I am pretty late to know about this thread, but yes have found it finally thanks to the help of the moderators.
I have been a car enthusiast right from child hood all thanks to my dad as he himself is one.
I have always loved, admired and literally worshipped cars( of course after my parents and God) in fact if you tell me to choose between a hot girl and a car it will always be the car, yes that is how much i love it. I don't say i am very knowledgeable in this field but yes i have decent enough knowledge and the craving to learn more and more. The automotive field is growing rapidly in india and i somehow want to be a part of it. I remember the dialogue from the Movie 3 Idiots where Amir khan tells madhvan and sharman to follow their dreams and not follow fame or money and i completely agree with it. I am 25 now and working in a financial company. Life is good and am getting the decent pay but life feels pretty dull. I wanted to go in the automotive field but during my collage days there was only auto mobile engineering and somehow did not get the support for doing it so was doing the Instrumentation engineering but due to an small accident had to leave engineering and go in for Commerce. Now here i again in a confused state whether to try the automotive field as it has developed vastly in the last 5 years.
I do not like the Sales or marketing part nor the core engineering part but love the Reviewing and Journalism part, usually that is done in a Auto magazine or auto show. Now i was considering the fact to just give a shot in this field for a year and see if its possible, as this world is pretty competitive and is not easy.
So i was looking out for some intern ship programmes or jobs where i can get more knowledge and experience in this field.
If anybody out here can help me on this issue or throw some more light on it, would be really helpful to me.
