    Economic Survey 2016: “Hence to exploit this dividend and meet the growing aspiration of those entering the labour force, India’s economy needs to create enough “good jobs”- jobs that are safe and pay well, and encourage firms and workers to improve skills and productivity,” it said. Out of the 10.5 million new jobs creative between 1989 and 2010, only 3.7 million-about 35 percent - were in the formal sector. In this period total establishments were increased by 4.2 million. The survey stated that jobs in informal sector have come down possibly due to increased use of contract labour. “Thus, the challenge of creating the good jobs of India could be seen as a challenge of creating more formal sector jobs which also guarantee workers protection.”

    Monster's easy hack No. 4.: Take a test

    There are a whole set of tests, called psychometric tests, that are often used as an aid in career choices. Such tests measure skills, knowledge, abilities, attitudes and personality traits and are said to be good indicators of a person’s preferences and abilities. The best known of these is the Briggs Myers test. This test will define you as a certain personality type and then suggest the careers that are suitable for you. Such a test may tell you that you have an INFP (Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Perceiving) personality and that you would do well in art, music or as a therapist. (Reuters)
