Government and Private jobs has always been a dilemma for fresher job hunters; especially for those who don’t know that what they want in their life.Once you are sure what your preferences are it would be easy to choose.
Generally people want all the luxuries in their life but for all of them it’s not possible so you have to compromise according your preferences. For example the benefits of government jobs are security, flexibility, post retirement benefits, comfortable working hours, relax environment, while one can point out some disadvantages also like slow growth, minimum career opportunity, comparatively lesser salary package, transfers, and lesser challenges. Similarly one can notice advantage of private jobs in India as higher salary packages, lesser transfers, performance base promotions, new challenges etc. Along with these benefits there are several problems also in private jobs e.g. lesser security, hectic work schedule, higher work pressure, mostly bosses are authoritarian etc.
Accordingly one can choose their choice. If you want challenges in life (JOB), better salary packages, quick promotions surely private job is your choice but at the same point of time you have to compromise with your work schedule, job security (if you are not competent enough), mental peace etc. Similarly Govt. Jobs can give you the things, which private don’t but reward you get is the security, stability and flexibility of job.
