In the present research, job satisfaction due to change in profession and the factors leading to change in profession have been studied. The Regression output with Adjusted R Square value of .407 explains the satisfactory level of association between independent variable (change in profession) and dependent variables (job satisfaction). Internal factors (Interest, passion and career growth) were found to have moderately significant effect on change in profession; while external factors (family business, superannuation) have significant impact on the dependent variable. The positive beta coefficient (0.256) of internal factors indicate that job satisfaction will be more if the internal factors are strong; whereas the negative beta coefficient (-0.236) shows lower job satisfaction if the external causes are strong. Individual factors such as age and marital status show moderate impact; however, factors such as salary and years of professional experience have significant impact on job satisfaction.
