DO YOU FIND YOURSELF IN THESE SITUATIONS?

What is more important- higher paycheck or quality of work? Why can’t my parents understand my interests? I don’t want to study engineering What salary should be good enough to pay back my loan and EMI? I really don’t know what career I want for myself. The only thing I know is I am not satisfied here.

Loss of about 2000 crores annually to the country Anecdotal data suggests more than 20% students leave their first job within the 1st year of joining.

Top reasons of why they leave Actual Job not what they had expected it to be Made a wrong choice due to various reasons Seeing others do it and following them Why do they leave?

That doesn’t make sense… Lets ask the question differently … Why did they end up in these jobs in the first place?

Its because their decision of Seeking that job was based on one or more of the 7 challenges they face today

Loans and EMI’s being a big factor in choosing a career Elders dictating the career choices of the young ones Fear of failure Social acceptance of the job secured Hierarchical systems and pecking orders Myths, biases and prejudices Gaps in information 7 challenges for Seekers

But its possible to overcome them and Seek your true calling Picture source:www.Successscultping.co
