Having a job is important for more reasons than one. A job is usually the main source of earning your livelihood. It is a means of achieving social status, fame, reputation and respect among your peers and other members of the society. We all look forward to highly rewarding jobs, not only in terms of pay but in other respects also. In this process we often ignore our interests or the field of work that we would love to work in specially when finding the first job.
