Government salaries Vs private salaries
This is the most interesting part for most job aspirants.This is important because you are trading your time for money for the next 30 years.current govt salaries are on par with private (including IT companies) companies and sometimes even exceeding them (like BHEL, NTPC..all navaratnas) at fresher stage.You will be assured of getting 20000 + in most of govt depts excluding some non executive jobs, plus various other benefits!!.In addition to this you have job security and an option to take study leave and most importantly departmental exams wherever possible to move to higher cadre.
Private companies usually don’t provide you the same kind of flexibility and job security.It is true that most IT, Finance and media companies might be paying around 30k for a fresher but not everyone is fortunate.You are still a fresher in the eyes of banks and govt until you reach 30 (sometimes more than that), which isn’t the case in private sector!.you are not a fresher after a couple of years out of college!!.
