If you go around asking graduates “What exactly do you look for when looking for a job?” many graduates will answer that getting a good salary package is their main aim. This is not surprising as the basic understanding of many individuals is that if they have spent a good amount of their time on studying with complete concentration, so now they deserved to get a job that would provide good salary package.
However, now this trend is changing. Graduates are starting to pursue their passion instead of going after making big bucks. A recent study revealed that graduates have opted out of pursuing job in the banking industry or even oil companies; and have gone on to pursuing those jobs that really interests them, such as fashion, accessories and luxury goods.
Opting for Google and Apple
The study also revealed that many graduates were more inclined to work at organisations like Google and Apple, instead of working at consulting firms or working at any industrial firm. When a graduate was asked about his opinion regarding the trend that was taking place, he replied by confirming that such a trend was indeed a positive aspect taking place. He, further, said that many times graduates opt for typical jobs, in which they are not even interested. However, in contrast to this, if they opt for a job that they would actually enjoy; they wouldn’t have to worry about becoming irritated or feel annoyed by the job.
A negative trend
Some researchers argue that the trend of individuals pursuing their interests instead of opting for a typical job is a negative trend and should be stopped. They are of the view that such a trend will have a negative impact on the market. If individuals tend to opt for organisations like Google and Apple, then who will be part of the oil industry firm or even a consulting firm. The researchers believe that such a notion should not be motivated and graduates should be moulded in a way that they opt for a typical job.
The opinion by researchers is further supported by oil industry firms or consulting firms by saying that they provide an environment in which the individuals are given professional growth as well as are motivated to become leaders in the future for the company. The stance of graduates opting for organisations that are not providing any proper experience is a wrong step, according to the typical firms, such as oil industry firms or consulting firms.
