    Getting a job is not important, job satisfaction is more important. A lot of students who complete their education are getting a job in a different sector. But another important fact is that they are getting paid very well. The course that they study differs from the job they do.From my point of view, you should not go for the job if you don't like the job profile. Identifying a right job which suits your attitude, thinking capability, analytical skills, etc. are very important. If you join for a job which is not based on your skills, it will hamper your further career. There will be less career development. The rewards and appreciation are t... view more

    Better you not look for salaries. There are many job profiles like the one you have. There are many job profile that gives high salary. But, if you do have any interest in your job, no matter what salary you get, you will not have that satisfaction which you want. Job satisfaction is way too important in the corporate world. It is not just about your salary or incentives. Your field of interest is also very important. Otherwise, you will not enjoy your work in any way. Whatever salary you are being paid, you will not like your job anyways.I would rather suggest you to go for those job profile that interests you. It would be much better for yo... view more

    You might have studied Maslow's hierarchy of needs in your academics. The choice asked above is a subjective one.The choice depends upon how well you are satisfied when you take any of the above choice. Do a little exercise, take a pen and paper write down both the options side by side. Below these options, write the benefits which you seek in long duration as well as a short duration for both of them. Next, write about the career growth and your satisfaction in both the roles you are getting. The last step could be the synchronization of your inner satisfaction with the choice they chose the one where you could get better satisfaction than t... view more

    Hi,It totally depends on you, that what you want. It solely depends on you. Like, if you want to have a job of your interest, then you must not continue your current job. If you continue doing your job without any interest, you will not be able to accomplish your work properly. But, if you want money then you should not leave the job. Now, that is for you to decide, whether you want the job which include your passion or you want the job to earn money.With passion, you would be satisfied till the end. You will incur a great feeling of satisfied. But, with money oriented job you will earn a lot of money and would not be satisfied to that extent... view more

    The most known proverb, love what you do. If you're doing the job which you don't like, please try to adapt the workstyle and love the work you do. If this is not at all possible, identify your passion / the job what you love and put efforts to get into it. Then do what you love.

    In simple words, I don't think you should go for it. Once you agree to it, you will find it hard to cope up. We have all been there: we find ourselves in a job that we don't enjoy; a job that isn't of our field of interest or a job that leaves us counting the minutes left until we can clock out and go home for the day. It's just a natural part of life and a natural part of creating the career of our dreams, but that doesn't mean we have to suffer day in and day out.You will be pushing yourself every day and there will be no motivation to work. Zero interest will make you put minimal effort and energy. Nobody can be productive enough when they... view more

    Never go for the profile which you don't like. Just because they are paying you high you'll think about that twice. Even if there is no such condition like financial crisis, where the foremost requirement for you is money. Because when you get indulge in something which you don't like creates stress to you, sustaining become difficult and performance get ultimately low. Moreover, your life will become frustrating and irritating. So better you look for other opportunities, profiles which you liking, where you willing to do work. When you do job which you like your performance will be enhance automatically and you will go up at your success lad... view more

    As long as my point of view is concerned, I find it better to go for as much learning as you can have if it is a start of your career. Hence by choosing the right profile once you have learnt much and are confident, you can switch and expect a good amount of salary basis of your skills, capabilities, etc.If the job is not of your profile or choice, believe me, you will not enjoy your job and work, though you will get paid well. I suggest you to go by your preferred work profile so you can give your best at work. Salary is something that may give you surprise any year according to your skills and performance. If I were you, I would go for litt... view more

    You have to be of any one type:1. Listen to brain but do what your heart says.2. If you are into it, you have to do it.In today's world getting a decent job which pay you decently is also difficult. Also the rising competition in market. You need to check your current and future financial requirements. This will help you to answer the question by yourself whether to continue or not, and if yes then for how many years.Also if you do not like the job profile and wish to reject, then you should know the job prospects in the field that you like. If you are sure in this, then you can sail through easily as its always better to do things that you l... view more

    Yes, most of the job seekers in India are now going through this dilemma that which job I should take whether high paid job in which I am not interested or go with my field of interest.I would say that job satisfaction is the most important thing whether the payment is low as compared to high paid job where you interest is low, so if you are getting a less salary but the job profile which you are looking for and you get that then definitely you should go with that only.Because if you got the job in your area of interest then surely you see growth in your upcoming years where as if you choose the job profile that you don't like but initial sal... view more
