After many months of interviews I've managed to get myself a great job in banking as a graduate following a degree in Neuroscience. However I'm annoyed because when people ask me my plans they knock me down for not continuing in a medical field which I was previously interested in. However I feel like I have gone with my head and have taken this great opportunity. How should I reply when people make these daft/disrespectful comments without getting annoyed/upset?
Tell then you did it for you, not for them. There will always be people who put you down - no matter what you do - just keep doing what you're doing and brush them off. Congrats on the job, it's tough getting any work right now.
