Avinash is selected in the Campus Interview in a MNC with a good salary. Avinash is confused. What should he do now?
College is a crossroad where students often find themselves confused about which path to take. They have two choices – either to take up a job or pursue higher education. Of course, it’s not just all that black and white and there are external factors at play like cost, opportunity, interest, family pressure etc. Say for instance, you decide to study further and enroll in post-graduation.
While pursuing post-graduation you might realize that your real interest lie somewhere else.
You decide to complete your Masters degree and then pursue that career path but what if that career path requires studying a separate course and you can’t study further? You surrender to the circumstances and take what seems the next logical step. You find it difficult to cope with the situation or you just don’t like what you’re doing simply because your interests lay somewhere else. As a result, your chances of success are impacted and you begin to feel like a failure. You end up stressed and depressed.
That’s certainly not a very pleasant thought but a sad reality for many of the professionals.
