Person : ….   Does this conversation sound familiar? Do you also run into a dead-end when the question “So what do you do?” comes up?   This will be a short blog where I will give you a template that you can follow while answering this question in a non-generic way so that the answer to the question about your occupation leads to a better conversation.
