Some people think that people who choose a job early and keep doing it are more likely to get satisfying in their career life than those who frequently change jobs.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?
It is argued that many people prefer to join a workplace early in their career and stay at the same job have a more fulfilling career than those who keep changing work. I disagree with this statement because for a good professional career, the atmosphere of an organization matters a lot, and it is not possible to have a good pay increment.
Firstly, when people do not change their workplace, it is difficult for them to compare the culture of their company with other organisations. This is because they are familiar with only one system, and they think that they best fit in the current environment. Therefore, it is better to change the workplaces and stay in a job which suits their lifestyle. For example, a recent study by Cambridge University found that people who stayed in the same job since the start of their career have a strong belief that their company’s culture is the best.
Secondly, there is limited growth of people in terms of salary increment. This is because an organisation has a limited department where they can acquire more expertise and stands out from others to get a better payment. Thus, these limited opportunities for people cannot enable them to have a good remuneration rise every year. To illustrate, I worked in a company for more than 3 years when I started my professional job, and during this time period, I received a meagre salary hike each year. However, when I started changing companies, I always received a better package each time.
In conclusion, changing jobs regularly is better for professional career growth because it helps people to understand the atmosphere of other organisations and it is more likely that people get a better salary in a new workplace.
