A friend is interested in changing the jobs. He is currently with one of the high paying MNCs and is planning to apply into one of the premier Indian organizations. On hearing this, I was surprised and asked “Why?”.
“There are many onshore opportunities there. The offshore pay is not good. With the onsite opportunities, I can accelerate my mortgage payments!”, my friend replied.
I was still not convinced and continued my line of questioning. “How are you sure?”
He patiently replied, “Well, I checked with my friends who are employed there! Most of them have gone onshore many times that they are bored of it. Now, they have begun refusing such opportunities. This results in a lot of open positions which the managers struggle to fulfill.”.
The explanation made sense. But what about the added stress? There were more unanswered questions.
He concluded, “Which job does not have stress? As long as there is Vitamin M, I do not care”
Vitamin M? Folic Acid? Then it dawned on me!
