About Me:

My name is Saleem Mumtaz and I am working on a key post of a reputed multinational organization. I am the member of recruitment and selection panel of my organization and during my 10 year experience I meet with hundreds of potential candidate who applied for different posts.

I meet with number of candidate who usually lacks required qualification for post. I asked some of them reason behind this and many of them said that they have to earn for their family and hence they could not complete their education.

I researched on Google and I came to know that there are many online universities offering different online degrees. Then I decided to work on a blog which have information about some top online degrees in different fields. So this was the stimulation behind my blog.
