Career Guidance
« on: September 07, 2017, 06:46:53 PM »

I started working as a product designer when I was 22 years old in June 2009. Switched jobs in Feb 2010, July 2011 - with good hikes and perks... 

Sept 2012 - Feb 2012
Somehow due to personal issues (break up and depression) I quit my job in Sept 2012. This was during Ketu Dasha.

Feb 2013  - June 2013
However, I recovered and came back to my old job in Feb 2013.

June 2013- May 2015 -
Got through a top Uni for higher studies (masters) in June 2013. Finished my masters in May 2015.

June 2015 - Sept 2016
Started working in a good company with good pay in June 2015. Got great hikes and promotions in short span of time.

Sept 2016 - July 2017
Got a documentary film making offer (1/4 of my previous remuneration). But I took it since I wanted to do it. Finished it in July 2017.

Aug 2017 onwards -
Teaching at a prestigious University as a part time lecturer. Payment is less but I like it. I do not want to take up a corporate job.

My Query - I seem to earn well when I take up corporate jobs, but never have a penny left for myself. I get bored easily too. Initially I spent my money on my brothers education, then contributed to build a huge house for my parents at my hometown. And by the time the house was done I had the freedom to enjoy my salary, I took up low paying jobs (that I loved). I wonder if I shall ever be able to enjoy the luxury of my own income and become rich (not filthy rich but earn well enough like I did before)? Will I have to take up corporate job? Or can I do well in field of films, research, teaching etc?
