Motivation from Job Content

1) Firstly, I look for an opportunity in a corporate organization because they consider their employees as their asset. Hence more chances for personal and career development. 2) It has to be related with the Real Estate Financing/Development as I want to progress further in my chosen field/sector. 3) I prefer to working in results oriented working environment i.e. no 9 to 5 mentality.

Self Motivation
