Government Jobs are hot amongst the college students, as per the news published by IndiaEduNews.
Recent spate of job and salary cuts in private sector has made job security, one of the important criteria compared to fat pay packets. Moreover recommendation and implementation of sixth pay commission have reduced the disparity between govt. and private jobs.
As per the survey conducted in Feb-Mar 2009 60% of students preferred government jobs to private sector jobs. 20% of the remaining 40 percent expressed interest to pursue higher education and the rest said they would either join their family business or start their own enterprise.
