Top 10 self counselling questions to help you find the right job

Apr 14, 2017 09:28 IST

Q. Someone please suggest me that what should I do to choose a perfect career for me?

Ans. Choosing the career, for most of the people, has always been a confusing and anxiety-riddled experience. Actually, building an ideal career is like building your home, with your own architecture that suits your requirements. Remember, too many choices are not always good, especially when it comes to picking your career. It’s not always that your passion and expected happiness can guide you to choose the right career. But you need to take all the external and internal factors into account before taking any decision. Never get attracted by the hype of a job, instead find out the story behind the camera, asking yourself that what would be your work role in the company? Check for the comfort and prestige you will be offered  there. Always, prefer the lifestyle to the job title. It will help you lead a peaceful work life.
