2. A bad Job can ruin your career.
Not at all! A job has got almost nothing to do with your career. It’s just a job, by the way, and as soon as you feel like it’s holding you back from something, resign from it.
It’s a job, not a marriage that you need to think on it hundreds of times before taking an important decision.
A bad job demotivates you, makes you feel aimless and sometimes hopeless too, However, as a matter of fact, a bad job teaches you a lot more in life than a good decent job would ever be able to.
If you wish to learn more in life, stick to the job you “hate.”
3. Fight for what you deserve
If you feel exploited at work, fight for what you deserve. No one will come and stand with you to get you a salary hike.
Fight for what you deserve, doing so will also make you mentally strong and help you in other situations on life as well.
Don’t be scared with your present and run away.
Face it, learn to say no, learn to put your foot down and take what’s yours. It is the time when you learn professionalism, and if you can’t get what you want now, you probably want to be to do the same for your entire life.
So, go and ask what you deserve now, Right NOW!

However, the majority of them keep looking for it until they retire. Why? Because the so-called “Perfect Job,” doesn’t exist in this world.
Every job has its negatives and positives; you just need to balance it well.
Just get into something you love doing, and you’ll never have to work again.
