1. What jobs are well paid in India?
There are many jobs that are well paid India. The jobs in the medical field are well paid, like doctors, nurses, etc.
The jobs in the IT sector and MNCs are also well paid.
Creative field’s jobs, like fashion designers, interior designers, advertising etc. are also well paid. Teaching is also a well-paid profession.
2. What jobs are poorly paid in your country?
There are certain jobs that are poorly paid in India. Those working at clerical levels are not very well paid.
The daily wage workers, like labourers, electricians, plumbers and janitors are also not very well paid.
Even though some of these jobs require specialized skills, they are usually poorly paid in India.
3. Do people who have different levels of income feel happy about how much they earn?
I think happiness doesn’t depend on the income level; however, a person with a higher income level would be able to lead a more comfortable life, than a person with lower income levels.
So, to an extent the income level may make a person more or less happier, depending on their needs being met or not, within their income.
4. Do you think students who just graduated should have the same income as old people?
No, definitely not. Students who just graduated may have better know-how of the latest technology needed in the jobs; however, they lack the work experience, which older employees gain through several years at work.
The older employees know the ins and outs of the work and are able to solve work-related problems easily.
The younger employees, lack that experience and most of the times, companies have to spend resources on training the young employees.
So, the younger employees shouldn’t be paid more than the older employees.
5. What should schools do to help students survive in society well?
Schools should do certain things that help students survive well in society, besides imparting education to them.
Schools play a major role in teaching children life skills, like social,
communication and interpersonal skills.
They can help children hone their talents and choose their career path.
Children are taught leadership skills, teamwork, co-operation at schools, through sports and various other activities.
Discipline and the importance of following rules and regulations are also taught at schools.
6. Why do people sometimes become bored with their job?
People sometimes become bored of their jobs because of the monotony of their work.
They may have to do the same work everyday, with no new learning and no change.
Sometimes people become bored of their jobs because they are not doing work in their field of interest.
7. What do you think employers are supervisors can do to help motivate their employees to perform better at work, besides giving them a pay raise?
Besides giving their employees a pay raise, employers can do many things to motivate them.
They can have a rewards and recognition session, in which they give out certificates or gifts to the best performers at work.
There can be healthy competitions organized, like employee of the week, team of the month, etc.
They can also provide certain benefits like insurance for the employee’s family or paying for completion of certain courses or education.
There can also be fun activities during work hours, which acts as a break and work becomes more enjoyable.
8. If someone is bored from their job, is it easy for them to change to a different job?
I think that it is easy to change to a different job these days, if someone is bored of his or her work.
There are many avenues and opportunities in every field. People can explore these avenues as per their interests.
There are also many MNCs that have opened up in the developing countries and it has led to more job opportunities, in all fields.
9. Do you think it’s good to change jobs frequently?
No, I don’t think it is good to change jobs frequently. It leaves a bad impression on the employers, as it reflects the loyalty of the candidate.
Too many and frequent job changes mean that the employee won’t stay for long with any organization.
Also, the person changing jobs may not learn much by changing jobs and will have to start at the same level each time.
