by Ansuman Kumar Career Consultant

Govt Jobs in IndiaMany people are confused in choosing between a government job and a private job. Each of these has a different advantage and disadvantage that is discussed below:

Government job


Private job

The main issue in government job is the growth. The growth in government sector is very slow and there fore the salary is also very less. In most of the government sectors employees have a side income in the form of bribe. This is one of the major reasons why most candidates want government job so that they can use this illegal means of income to acquire wealth in various forms.

The growth of the private sector on the other hand is very lucrative. Unlike government sector private sector employers look for hard working employees and reward such employees with good salary and other incentives.   For a person who is honest, talented and hardworking, he deserves a private sector job. With the private sector being more than billion dollar industry it has great scope for people seeking employment in this sector.

The government job is restricted by a certain age limit for example for applying to certain jobs one must have been below certain age. Even the age of retirement in government job is  62 years[ government has extended two years for central government employees and defence , for other sectors it may differ]

Private job on the other hand has no age limit. Even if a person is willing to work after the age of 60 and if he has the potential then he can continue with his job in the private sector.

As mentioned before the government employees make money through bribe there fore one can estimate that job in the private sector is not challenging at all.

Private job is very challenging and one has to continuously prove his efficiency in the job by employment news of this week. In private sector if a person is not able to meet the target of the work in terms of quality and quantity then he can be chucked off the job
