The first job is of great importance for a person, because it frequently decides one’s future career. Most parents want their children to work for the government, while the young people trend to start business on their own. Both options have advantages and disadvantages.
Working for the government seems to be permanent and stable. So many graduates choose to take part in the national exam, for the purpose of being a public servant. But it is the stability that makes the young people feel bored and like wasting their time on the repeating work.
As the government advocates the young generation to self-employed, many graduates join the team. They want to develop their talent and follow their hearts. And it takes a long time for them to get great return. When they see their fellows buy house and cars, they will be easy to feel frustrated. Starting business is not always a simple thing.
In my opinion, the career we choose must be passionate. We need to do it for more than 30 years, so the interest comes first, or we will be like a walking dead.
