What kind of jobs do young people prefer? The young generation likes to do jobs that involve creativity and where they can work independently. They also look for jobs that are well paid and require less physical effort. In our country, most of the graduates are employed in the IT industry. I think they like to work as programmers or IT administrators.
Some people will lose their jobs because of technology, how to deal with it? I think it is the responsibility of the government to skill these people on new technologies so that they can find new jobs. Otherwise, there would be large scale unemployment, which would be detrimental to society.
Will you settle down in another country? Yes, if I get a good job opportunity in a developed country, I would like to settle there. I feel if a person does not settle early then he or she will never achieve success and will always lead a stressful life.
How do young people today decide their career? The present generation has a lot of options when it comes to deciding their career. In the past, the young looked up to their family members while deciding their career but nowadays the youth have a lot of role models from different fields and they make their own decisions. Some of them also like to explore different jobs before finalizing on one. Moreover, they also do a lot of research looking at future prospects of different jobs.
Which do young people generally prefer – boring jobs with higher pay or interesting jobs with lower pay? Nowadays the young are intelligent, and they understand if they are not doing something they like, they will never be happy. So, they choose the jobs they are passionate about and money takes the backseat.
Which do you prefer physical work or work involving thinking? I prefer intellectual work over work that requires a lot of physical effort. I feel work that stimulates your mind is more satisfying as compared to physical work which is monotonous.

Thanks to the advancements in technology, our lives are more comfortable convenient nowadays. The work that required strenuous effort in the past can now be done with the click of a button.
