Chief Executive Officer                

Chief Executive Officer is the most desirable yet most challenging job one could take up. A CEO is a highest-ranking position in any company. A chief executive officer (CEO) is the highest-ranking executive in a company so it is obvious that it is the highest paying position. They make strategies and have many responsibilities for the company. It would not be wrong to say that it is the CEO that decides the good or bad for any company.

Making corporate decisions, ensuring effective mobilization of resources is the major responsibility of a CEO.  They even look after the overall operation of the firm. They act as a bridge between the board of directors and the general firm. They often hold the position inboard of directors as well and help in making important decisions. It is one of the highest paying jobs in Nepal.  However it is not easy to become a CEO, you need years of experience and strong knowledge and skills to back that up.


Becoming a surgeon is not an easy task but once you reach there, it is one of the highest paying jobs in the country. A surgeon is basically a doctor who performs surgery. The income of a surgeon differs from the specialization they have, it could be in cardiology, neurology and so on. The life as a surgeon is not less challenging, the life of someone else depends on your hand and skills. It is a very critical job that requires a high level of expertise. One should complete an undergraduate degree and then an MD degree. You will need a minimum of around eight years of experience at a hospital before you become a surgeon.

General Physician

 We have already listed the surgeon as s highest paying job and the general physician is also one of them. They provide non-surgical service to patients as diagnosis, treating diseases and so on. A general physician is also paid very well. And especially when you work for bigger and reputed hospitals, the pay is even better. To become a general physician, you will need an MBBS degree with at least three years of working experience. 


The manager is another very well paying job in Nepal. It is equally challenging as well. Financial manager, human resource managers, marketing manager and so on are n of the highest paying jobs in the country. The salary scale depends on the type of company you are working with. In a big and more reputed company, the pay for a manager is quite good.

Again, to become a manager you will need years of experience backed by good qualifications. You will need a graduate and postgraduate degree in management and at least 10 years of experience to be hired by a good company. However, to become a middle-level manager, an undergraduate degree with three years of experience may work.

It is very important for an applicant to have enough knowledge about the company they are applying for. This shows your homework and passion you have for this job. Do proper research about the company and the industry. Be aware of the basic information and facts about the industry. The interviewer may ask you that and you don’t want to disappoint them by nor having an answer.

Don’t be hesitant to state your strengths and to showcase your skills. But don’t go overboard. You will have to clearly state why you are perfect for the job and what makes you different from other candidates applying for the job. You also need to know what the interviewer wants to hear. As I said earlier research about the company and the job you are applying for and convince the interviewer that you have the relevant skills required for that.

State about your past experience and your achievements and try to convince the interviewer that you are an ideal candidate.

 Be confident

Confidence is key when it comes to job interviews. There is a reason you are applying for this job, you wouldn’t be applying for the job if you were not capable enough. Believe in yourself and your skills. Don’t be under confident and hopeless. Appear the interview with full confidence and with the mindset that you can do this.

There is nothing wrong with already preparing for these questions. This will make you feel confident and look smart at the same time. This way you won’t fumble during the interview and you will leave a good impression on the interviewer.

Be honest about your skills

I have often met people with fake details in their CV. Honesty is the ultimate key while facing a job interview. Don’t lie about your experiences and skills. If you don’t have the skill, then don’t lie be honest but show your passion to learn that skill. A lie may help at first but it doesn’t work on a long term basis. Don’t lie on your resume or in your interview. Be clear and precise. Clearly answers the questions to make them believe you are worthy of jobs.
