Big Cities or Small Towns
Want to be a small fish in a big pond or the other way round? Every graduate faces this question when he starts his career. A large number of college graduates prefer to stay in the big cities. To them, big cities mean more experiences, more opportunities and more space for career development. At the same time, higher salary is another temptation.
However, some graduates choose to start in small towns where they can have a quieter and less competitive life. Another reason is that they can be a big fish in a small pond. They can easily get the supervisors’ attention and may win promotion earlier, which means they can be successful earlier compared with their counterparts in big cities.
As far as I am concerned, small towns have a slow pace while large cities mean you have to adapt to a variety of situations, like finding a new route to work or try a new restaurant. Also the variety of cultural activities available in big cities make me excited.
