Eighty three per cent of India's leading B-school graduates are willing to forego hefty pay packets for the sake of a job profile of their preference, says a survey by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM).

The country-wide survey covered over 500 students in top B-schools of India.

When given a choice between working for a growing company or an established one, 60 per cent respondents opted for companies in the growth phase.

Banking emerged as the most preferred sector among the respondents, with 51 per cent eyeing the sector. Consultancy, marketing and IT are the other favoured sectors.

Seventy five per cent of the respondents want jobs in the US. The UK and Australia were the next favourite destinations, with 40 per cent and 25 per cent, respectively, opting for these countries.

Among the 32 per cent respondents who preferred to work in India, 48 per cent placed no priority at all to job location. Another 42 per cent considered location as an influencing factor second to job profile, affecting their decision.

Thirty four per cent stated they would not sacrifice the sector of their choice for any perk in form of pay or profile.
