How many of you have been criticized for changing your career or choosing a career unrelated to your graduation subject?
If you are an engineer, I’m sure that at least 50% of you may have come across such criticisms.
I’m one of those engineers who didn’t get a job in the field of their graduation subject and have faced hardcore criticism for trying a job in another area.
Even before I started taking arts seriously, people criticized me for trying government jobs in other fields and bank jobs being an engineer.
I remember the mom of a B.Com graduate once said, ” Why are these engineering graduates trying for bank jobs?? Bank jobs should be given only to commerce graduates!!”
Even one of my schoolmate once said that I should be ashamed of myself for trying other jobs because I’m an engineering graduate!!
Do there exist any rule that I can’t work in another field and be successful?
Everyone wants to be independent and successful in life. Each human being on this planet deserves the best experience they could ever have in their life. So no one other than you has the authority to decide what your career should be!!
It’s not necessary that your job should be in precisely the same field of your graduation. Sometimes to keep growing, you need to change the pot!!
Many engineers are successful actors and artists.
Many doctors are successful civil servants and actors.
Many business graduates are successful artists and chefs.
Many designers are successful bloggers and writers.
People work years in a field and then realize that they were intended to be in another area. But its all the part of the journey, and you still have a lot of time to make yourself be what you want!!
Don’t let the fear of what others think stop you from the career you want to pursue!!
This blog post is dedicated to all those beautiful souls whose education subject and career path are poles apart.
I would love to know what you studied and what’s your career now!!
