Who doesn’t want their dream job? Surely everyone does! We grow up dreaming about a certain job which we would love to pursue when we grow up. Little do we know they all come with some dirty little secrets than no one tells us about. When we go for an interview we get to know about the perks of it, but nobody tells us about the dark side. The truth is every job comes with a baggage. A baggage that we have to carry every day when we go to work! Here are some obstacles in popular professions:
Being a doctor is a matter of pride. It is considered as one of the most respectable jobs. But people know very little of what goes on behind that curtain. People often forget that the doctor is only human! They are defamed for scamming for their own profits. If something goes wrong it is blamed on the doctors as part of negligence. Thus, this profession is on top of our list of ‘obstacles in popular professions’.
Well first of all, though IT companies pay you more than the others, they also make you work long hectic hours as if they own you. Even if the users make any errors it will still be blamed on you!

Nobody really understands the pressure one faces when serving hundreds of customers in a limited time with the food that tastes amazing, which is enough for all and at the same time is still hot! People tend to think being a chef is easy because all you have to do is cook. Whereas being a chef is much more than just cooking.

Even if the waiter disappears, the food turns cold, it is considered to be the chef’s fault.

We’ve all heard news about mishaps in zoos due to negligence of people. Do you know who they blame for all this? Of course the zookeeper!

Teachers overwork, over stress and are underpaid. Teachers should be applauded for their efforts but they feel unsupported due to lack of resources and technology. The amount of effort put in by the teachers is never really appreciated by anyone. They are under tremendous pressure all the time. However, are subjected to disrespectful and malicious behavior.
Taking thousands of pictures all day isn’t an easy task. Photographers put their heart and soul into their work taking pictures and editing them; only a few get selected. It is disheartening to see your work being rejected and your effort put to waste.
