Choosing a career is the most hectic part of a student’s life. You are going to spend a lot of time pondering over the right track for you. Before you take a step you must have a clear idea of what you are going into or is that your heart’s desire or you are doing it just for the sake of society and parents.
Most students have to make this tough decision abruptly after their student life gets over and they are completely unprepared for it.
Generally, the students apply for a number of companies that come for campus recruitment go through all the menace of aptitude tests/interviews and select the highest paying job or whatever job you land on.
It’s not a good approach for choosing a career as can give rise to number of complications like
– The novelty of the company’s brand and high salary wears off very quickly.
– Job satisfaction drops because there’s a discontent between the job requirements and your personality.
– There are productivity and efficiency issues at work because the academic life never really gave you the technical skills you needed.
