J: I don't say sir that I can't make any progress in Pakistan. I've determined to stay in Pakistan and strive hard to prove my worth. But sir I need a proper platform from where I could start my journey. And I think your company can provide me one as you appreciate qualification and not recommendation.
M: Ok, Mr. J:, I think you are the man we are looking for. Please, keep in touch. We'll inform you within a week. Good luck.
