Topic 10 On Job-hunting Priorities 关于影响就业因素的讨论
When a graduate hunts for a job, he has to take the priority issue of a few important factors into consideration: is it the pay, the specific field, or the location?
Graduates give priority to different elements. Some graduates think the pay should take the first place, since they have been spending the family’s money all the time, and it’s time to do something to reward the family members. Besides, a high pay usually means a relatively high position in the company. Some would take their major as the No.1 element, or it would be a big waste of what they have learned in college. Meanwhile, the major chosen for college usually reflects their interest and preference. Still others offer the pride of place to the location of the job. They believe big cities like Beijing and Shanghai will provide more opportunities, or a place close to their hometown will furnish the graduate and his family more convenience since most families now are one-child ones.
As to me, the ideal job should meet all three conditions. But when I have to make a choice, I would choose to work close to my hometown. As the saying goes “East, west, home is the best.”
