24-Yr-Old IT Engineer earning Rs 58 Lakh Package speaks about ‘Loneliness’

An IT (Information Technology) engineer is a professional who specializes in the design, development, implementation, and maintenance of information systems and technology infrastructure for organizations.

IT engineers are responsible for ensuring that an organization’s technology systems are up-to-date, efficient, and secure. IT engineers may have a degree in computer science, information technology, or a related field.

They may also have industry certifications, such as CompTIA A+ or Cisco CCNA, to demonstrate their knowledge and expertise in specific technology areas.

Recently, a post by a 24-year-old software engineer disclosed about his loneliness despite earning a whopping Rs 58 LPA.

“Feeling saturated in life. I am a 24 year old Software Engineer in an FAANG company with 2.9 years of experience living in Bangalore. I make a good living (58lpa before taxes) and have a somewhat relaxed work life.

“However, I am always overwhelmed and lonely in my life. I don’t have a girlfriend to spend time with, and all of my other buddies are preoccupied with their lives. Even my work life is monotonous because I have been with the same company from the beginning of my career and do similar things every day, and I no longer look forward to fresh challenges and growth opportunities at work. Please advise on what I should do to make my life more interesting. (Don’t say ‘go to the gym,’ because I already go),” he wrote.

Meanwhile, one of the Twitter users wrote, “Many don’t know current software engineering is increasingly becoming tools and library gluing which kinda makes it boring and add that 58lpa.. easily peaking in SWE unnecessarily”

The other user wrote, “People being sarcastic and envious in the comments, probably distracted by the 58lpa.He is lonely and longs for human connection. And it’s a valid need for everyone, irrespective of salary.Loneliness is the curse of modern life and we don’t acknowledge it.”
