Importance Is For Profile Or Heavy Pay?
Currently, there was a study conducted by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) revealed that most of the MBA Graduates from top B-Schools such as IIM's prefer a job profile of their choice over a heavy pay package. Almost 83% of leading B-School graduates are willing to fore-go heavy pay packages for the sake of a job profile of their preference.

The survey was conducted over 500 management students from B-Schools which included IIM's, IIT's, Indian Institute of foreign Trade (IIFT), Symbiosis Institute of International Business (SIIB) and Xavier Institute of Management (XIM). The survey disclosed that nearly 83% of the students select job profile over pay packages thinking that the correct profile will help them in the long term.

As a result, the students are willing to compromise on their salary as well. However, remaining 17% of the students prefer big salaries to a good job profile of their choice.

The survey also threw light on the fact that the banking sector followed by consulting, marketing and IT sectors are the most preferred sectors by the management graduates prefer to work in start-ups rather than establishment companies.

What do you think? Factors like desire for a higher standard of living, family expectations and responsibilities, compulsion to pay high amount of education loans, to save for investment in entrepreneurship, conventionally draw MBA graduates toward high paying jobs. So do things seem to have changed with preferences changing for the future growth than the present rewards?
