If you’ve completed your graduation and looking forward to do something, you’ve come to the right place. Choosing the next step can be hard in few cases, especially when you did not have a proper plan. But hey! It’s never too late. Times are changing and you’ve got a lifetime to achieve things, so here are few suggestions.
Get Guidance from the Right Person
There are so many places/people you can visit to get a career guidance. Before going to anyone of them, just keep this thing in your mind. Everyone you consult is just going to give their opinion and it may not work all the time.
Quick Tip: Do not seek guidance from those who grew up easily. It’s better to get guidance from people who faced a lot of challenges in their career life.
Small Post in a Big Company or Big Post in a Small Company
As a fresher, these are the only choices you have as far as I know. Consider this example before making any choice. The world looks at what you know but not where you got it from. I have seen people who tried for jobs in large companies, no matter what the post is. They say, “They pay me well.” But if you just work for salaries, trust me, you’re not going to love your job for long time. Even if you take that as work experience, everyone offers you a job in the same level.
On the other hand, if you go to a higher post, no matter how small the company is, the work experience can help you in getting jobs at the same level in bigger companies. This way, you can do what you love, eventually in your dream company.
Do What You Love
This is the decision where you’ll know if you’re going to love your job. You may ask what’s the big deal with loving one’s job. I have a simple answer for this. If you love your job, even if it is stressful, you don’t feel the stress. And if you don’t love what you do, you are prone to losing interest in doing repeated work all the time, which will either make you compromise or make you hate the job.
If you are working but actually do not like what you do, that obviously means you’re working for money.(My opinion. No offence.) Working for higher salaries when you are not “connected” to the work you do, will cost you stress and strain, your personal life, and much more. But if you do what you love, even if you’re not paid so well, you will not be so worried because you’re happy with your job and the salary won’t bother you at all. You will be happy with what you have.
