My next big step after Bachelors.

Rate this post


With a bachelors degree in hand you feel much achieved and out of a very important phase of life where you peek at educational and knowledge levels. There is a level of confidence within you to think about what next? and this is when you face with a multidimensional dilemma about taking a wise decision.


What are the odds of getting employment in my chosen field of interest with a Bachelor’s degree?

At this point, we all know why and how we chose a field 3-4 years back. It could be due to a number of reason maybe following a trend, a subject of interest, the passion or curiosity and the scope of life after completing the course. But today the world is so quick with bringing trends and replacing standards with new ideas that our field of interest finds much deep roots in a different case or field that we feel more inclined towards it or maybe when we have reached the threshold of limit with a subject while it has just expanded in itself with open strings to connect with. 

Look into your competition and growth profile, These are the two factors that influence your further decision about employability. If you wish to get a head start with your career the right choice is to get employed right now. In this case you can develop skills with your work life and in 5 years time down the line you would be a better professional than any in your profession. team it up with hard work you could sky rocket your growth with early promotions and upgrades.

Another case is where you wish to develop a particular skill set required for your field and narrow your profile to concentrate on one thing and be the best on it. A Masters profile may give you a jump start compared to a position opening with bachelors but at the same time you could be well prepared to face any scenario in work life with much confidence and deeper insights about the scenario.
