Common Problems Freshers face in Hyderabad
It’s always difficult to move to a new city and when it’s for a job it becomes difficult as you have to look into everything on your own. It’s more difficult for freshers as it’s for the first time they are exposed to the corporate world. Here are a few problems which freshers might face while looking up for their jobs in Hyderabad:
1. Water Problems:
There are a few localities in Hyderabad where the water problem is painfully severe. It’s really a problem when you get up in the morning and don’t have water to wash up and get ready for your office. In fact, some places entirely depend on tankers for their water needs. That’s the least you want after already compromising so many things to move to a new place.
Solution: Before you pay your security and rent to move, make sure the society or the place you are moving to have regular supply of water. Don’t believe the landlord; try getting in touch with fellow tenants instead.
2. All work no play:
That’s not actually a problem with the city, but your workspace. Since the culture is totally corporate, your company might take out more work from you than expected. In fresher jobs, this can be really exhausting at the very start of your career.
Solution: Don’t depress yourself. Make a friend circle with your same age colleagues or neighbours and spend weekends with them. Go for movies or plan short trips during long weekends.

Apart from working and shaping your career, you can spend your leisure time exploring the city. It has a lot to offer. From heritage monuments like Golkonda and Charminar to exploring history in museums, it has a lot to offer.

The best thing is that you can never run out of options when it comes to food. Known for the famous Hyderabadi Biryani, there’s lot more in the city to satiate your taste buds.
