What are some of the positives, which would encourage someone to join your Profession?

The positive thing that I find about this job is that any person who has great leadership and management skills can easily achieve the purpose of the job. Working for a political party, you gain political support too. Mostly the work is not at all hectic and stressful except during the time of an election. The more you work at such a level, the better experience you get and better will be your work in the coming years.

In order to coordinate the whole district, you have to travel frequently which consumes a lot of energy. During the time of an election, the workload is greater than ever. You have multiple tasks pending at a moment and have to attend to all of them within the stipulated time. During these hours, you hardly get time to be with your family as every bit of it is spent organizing various activities.
