Being an entrepreneur is the most difficult job in Bangladesh due to the lack of capital and experience on and off the field.

Every single profession is difficult in Bangladesh. Low wages, almost zero benefits, lack of good governance, limited government support, lack of job security, devaluation of higher degrees, unfair/unethical HR policies, transportation problem, excessive traffic in metro cities especially in Dhaka and other factors are creating problems for each and every employee in Bangladesh.

There are many types of jobs in Bangladesh. Though marketing is not a job that anyone would enjoy, I think it is one of the most difficult jobs in Bangladesh. The people in our country are not very friendly with strangers. So when a marketer goes to a person to introduce a new product or service, he/she is usually shown the least respect. In my opinion, sales and marketing related jobs are the most difficult in our country.

I think it is difficult to continue with a positive attitude as any professional in Bangladesh. But it becomes almost impossible when you are working in a government office and you do not want to engage in corruption. The reason behind this, in my opinion, is not the salary scale or problems with the benefits available. The reason is that the system is not working in the right manner in any of the public organisations.

Each and every profession will prove difficult if you try to be honest in your job. Honesty seems to be the last requirement that employers and the overall system is looking from us.

I think any kind of hard work is difficult in the country. These day-labourers work for a long time and very cheap wage rates.
