Indians On Reddit Reveal The Stupidest Mistakes They’ve Made Career-Wise

Some people have a knack for making hilariously bad career choices. There’s always going to be that one person who chooses the wrong educational field, or that one employee who quits their job without another job offer in hand, or that one achcha bachcha who leaves their stable job to prepare for UPSC exam. We all make mistakes when it comes to our careers, some more stupid than others, and people have been sharing them on Reddit.

Taking to the r/AskIndia subreddit, a user asked people online what was the stupidest thing they ever did career-wise. The user also shared their own mistake – trusting his trainer at his office a bit too much. The user shared how he had revealed to his trainer that he had another interview to attend. While officially applying for a leave, he faked a medical emergency. But his trainer ended up blabbering to the HR and the user got called for disciplinary action.

In response to the post, several Indians shared their own stupid mistakes. Most of them spoke about how they didn’t run after a degree that actually would be useful later in life, how they didn’t learn multiple skills, and how they left their jobs to prepare for competitive exams, among others.

When one is young and inexperienced, they tend to make hasty decisions because they do not know any better. It is only after a couple of years of working in the industry can they look back and recognise the mistakes they have made.
