Many of us pursue college degrees that we believe will help us find our dream job. Armed with hope and a diploma we enter the labor force with anticipation and feeling that we could have that dream job but in the real world that doesn’t happen often. We stay in job because we need to and not because we want to among other reasons. The recent study of showcased why there’s a nationwide prevalence of low job satisfaction among Filipino workers.
