What are the different pointers that freshers need to keep in mind while searching for a suitable job. How graduates get manipulated when they are offered such jobs. How youngsters get carried away with higher salary than usual offered.
Some professionals like Chartered Accountants, Company Secretary, Law Students are usually paid higher salary as compared to a B.com, BMS graduate. There are exceptions where salaries can be high and can be the real deal. But that’s rare or depends on the College and their placements.
The cooperate world is not all fun and games as it may seems from the outside. There is a whole lot going on inside. It’s a whole new ball game.
Today’s youth have a misunderstanding that only high salaried job’s are worth. But as tempting as it may seem, some of thoes jobs offering high salary for a fresher graduate can be fake rather false promises.
As it’s said promises are made to be broken. There are companies offering good salary along with alot of work. But where there is good there has to be bad.
Few companies are there searching for cheap labour and promising good pay but delay payments, have payments made in installments. These are signs to quickly find an alternative as this may get worst if such decisions are delayed. Alot of freshers don’t get their salary in the end and repent later. Beware of foney smal time companies looking to make profit on fresh and educated graduates. You might fall prey and be termed as “Educated Illiterate”
