India had received its freedom in 1947, and since then we
are struggling to improve our literacy and employment
rate. Though these factors are not yet very well in our
country, but we have made growth over the time. Both
private and government sectors have played their role in
employment in India. Both sectors recruit many young
graduates to give them a chance to work in their
organizations. Then, how can we differentiate between a
govt job and a private job? How to figure out which one is
better? Let’s try to find the answer in this post.
BENEFITS OF GOVERNMENT JOBS
God salary and perks: With a govt job, you receive decent salary and
also extra benefits. You usually receive your salary every month on
time, which is not right about private jobs
Lifetime Pension: Pension is also an advantage of having a govt job.
Even after retirement, you will receive some pension for rest of your life.
Good free time: Government job timing is limited unlike private offices’ 810 hours of work. You will get a lot of time for your family and other
things and tasks.
You do not need many skills: In order to survive in a govt job, you need
not to possess many skills. You can manage with whatever qualification
Other perks: Unlike a private job, in government sector, you get many
benefits along with your salary. You get housing facility, healthcare,
insurance and other allowances including TA and DA.
Vacation: Your government job gives you many government holidays
along with enough numbers of paid leaves and workload is also less.
Job security and social security: With govt job, you will get job security
and also, good reputation in the society.
BENEFITS OF PRIVATE JOBS
Promotions: in private jobs, you will get frequent promotions based on
your work performance, which is not judged in a government job.
Salary: Salary package in private jobs is higher than govt sector.
Promotion and increment depend on your performance.
Recruitment process: Hiring process in private jobs is faster as compare
to government jobs recruitment process.
Suitable Working environment: working environment in private offices is
better than a govt office. It motivates the employees and improves job
Skills over experience: In private sector jobs, skills and knowledge are
preferred over experience. If you have good knowledge, you can easily
overtake a person having more experience, but fewer skills.
As a conclusion we can say that both government and
private sectors have their own advantages and
shortcomings. One should choose a career where he can
adjust himself easily.
