Bangalore: In this tough competitive world, most of the professionals find it very difficult to make a choice between job security and job opportunity. As a professional what do you prefer for your job satisfaction? It’s a point to think about when you are very serious regarding your professional life.



According to a recent survey, most of the people have chosen job security as their major concern because of the fear of recession. This is a main reason to choose job security. Many people have lost their jobs during the recession period. At this situation, where most are satisfied with their jobs in large number, there are people who are happy with their career development opportunity.



But when it comes to job satisfaction, job security tops the list in job market. For this reason many of the employees are sacrificing the idea of their advancement in their career just to maintain the job stability.



The survey conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management found that about 83 percent of the employees are happy with their jobs, but less people are happy with their opportunities for their career development and innovation. Many people were of the opinion that they were happy with their level of job security, reports Kate D'Amico.
