After graduation, which is better, go to work or pursue higher studies?

Updated on : December 3, 2021 by Mason Scott



After graduation, which is better, go to work or pursue higher studies?

You can choose any of them. You can do a masters or pg course directly after graduation or look for a job, have some experience and then join for higher studies as well. It's your choice.

If you are looking for a job, you will gain real industry experience and this practical knowledge cannot be imparted through books. Some people look for work after graduation and after one or two years do their master's degree. This helps you directly get a better job at a higher level (promotion type soon type). Give more value since work experience and mastery, both will be a positive point.

On the other hand, if you studied college before, you should go for a good university with good locations. Some people prefer to combine their education over jobs because they feel that a gap could break the link with studies.

Choose according to your interest.

Good luck

Most college graduates seem to prefer going to work. If possible, they find employment in a field that uses the skills and knowledge they gained during their college years. Later, if there are job demands, changes in the economy, changes in interest, or opportunities for advancement that require more advanced education, many return to school to continue their education. Master's degrees, for example in business administration or education, can be pursued part-time while continuing to work.

Studies in hard science or math often require more education to advance.

Master's degrees, for example in business administration or education, can be pursued part-time while continuing to work.

Studies in hard science or mathematics often require more education to advance in the field, but not necessarily. A young woman I know graduated from college and started working for a pharmaceutical corporation, intending to continue her studies for a Ph.D. She realized, despite great academic success, that she loved her job, was productive at it, and was well paid. He decided to give up more studies to dedicate himself to advancement in the company. This has proven to be a very good decision for her. the Ph.D. simply wasn't necessary for her.

The problem of going back to college for advanced graduate study may depend on how much debt you can comfortably take on or how many years you are willing to continue studying. When the decision is made on the basis of a cost-benefit analysis, the case for part-time advanced study while continuing to work can become increasingly attractive. On the other hand, if your desire for advanced study is to qualify for the minimum requirements of the job, university professor, for example, then further graduate study will be necessary.

As with so many other things in life, the answer to your question is not one or the other. There is almost always a middle path that you can follow as you mature and develop in your profession.

Works.

I encourage you to get some work experience before jumping into something like an MBA, or any other master's degree for that matter, try working in the field in which you have spent your entire college education, learning.

Regardless of the graduate degree you choose, it is an investment. Not only in monetary terms, but a graduate degree is also an investment of time and energy. Can you imagine spending 4 years in undergraduate school and then 2 more in graduate school, only to get a job and realize that you don't like working on what you spent learning for 6

Can you imagine spending 4 years in undergraduate school and then 2 more in graduate school, only to get a job and find that you don't like working on what you spent learning for a full 6 years?

Maybe you like it, but you are simply not getting the job satisfaction you expected and decide to pursue an MBA instead. You still wasted two years of your life on a graduate degree that you may never use.

Don't force yourself to graduate immediately. An intelligent man would always dip his toes in the water to check the temperature, before jumping. While education is never really wasted, you are only delaying your career growth by making a hasty decision.

Another thing that will help you to have some work experience before starting your master's degree is applications for your graduate course. You will be able to justify your choice to advance in your desired course much more authentically than a new one.

Thanks for A2A.
This basically depends on your priorities. From my perspective, it is always recommended that if you have a plan for higher studies, you do not delay it too long (although a gap of 1 to 2 years is fine). You need to find out which category is best for you among the following and find a trade-off.

  1. If you do not want to take a break between studies, then it is better to opt for higher studies.
  2. If your family's financial situation needs your support, then it makes more sense to take a job for some time and go to higher education after the situation stabilizes. agree or not, higher education

Agree or disagree, higher education in India does not provide enough monetary support; I suppose you are looking forward to higher education in India
  3. If after 3/4 years of university studies, you want a break from studies for 1-2 years, you can opt for a job.
  4. If you want to explore how the industry works and you are not very sure about your higher curriculum at the moment, you can give it a try if you opt for a job after bachelor's degree.
  5. If you have the opportunity to work on some areas of research during your work, it could open up your perspective on research, which is essentially a big part of the 'higher studies', that you plan for the future. Also, it could help you get into a better institute.

This question doesn't have the perfect answer, because each answer will vary based on your major, who you speak to, and your personal goals. Many graduates may choose a graduate school to further elaborate or study the specialty they previously studied, or to find a way to enter a doctoral program. Some majors and academic advisors may require you to gain experience, rather than study further. A good example of this, I think, is journalism. Although a master's degree in journalism continues to train you in a deeper understanding of the field, journalism is first a

Some majors and academic advisors may require you to gain experience, rather than study further. A good example of this, I think, is journalism. Although a master's degree in journalism continues to train you in a deeper understanding of the field, journalism is first a field of writing, and it takes a certain level of experience more than in books.
Today, the technology available to all of us can help students achieve both their graduate program and their experience through work. This can be done through online graduate programs, which many major universities are even beginning to offer.
Again, the answer is not clear cut in black and white, but rather a combination of many ideas, theories, and what you consider to be the best option for you.
Here's an article where I got some of my information: http://www.onlineschools.com/grad-school/benefits-online-grad-school-education.
Hope this helps you and good luck in your decision.

It strictly depends on your financial status and interest in your studies. If you are good enough financially and want a little more education, you should obviously choose to study. Because if you do a job, that means you are working for someone for some salary. Keep it in mind. Although if you have grown well with that job, in the future, you may reach good heights, but only up to a point. If you are going to do more studies, in the future there may be two opportunities for you, namely 1) to get into a job and 2) to give a job. that means that, with more higher education, you will be in a state of giving jo

If you are going to do more studies, in the future there may be two opportunities for you, namely 1) to get into a job and 2) to give a job. That means that, with further higher education, you will be in a position to give someone a job. The purpose of your education meets there. If you are creative enough, then you invent some product, get a patent, and put an industry on it. Then you yourself will be an entrepreneur. Or there is also another way. Look for work for about 2-3 years, gain experience and come back and then continue with your studies. Therefore, education is more important than work.

Well, it's up to you. Simply about your financial situation and family history. Even though you are inspired to pursue higher studies abroad, either to increase your dimensions on the subject or to earn an income, the 2 above play an important role for THE FOLLOWING.

If you are from an economically backward family, I suggest that you work for a while until you save something for your higher studies after supporting your family financially. Then you can study. In fact, people who have prior work experience are mostly preferred to a naive with no experience in the master's application process. If things work

If you are from an economically backward family, I suggest that you work for a while until you save something for your higher studies after supporting your family financially. Then you can study. In fact, people who have prior work experience are mostly preferred to a naive with no experience in the master's application process. If things work out well, you can even get financing.

For a former former job candidate:

The chances of being admitted are more,

CTC will be slightly more than inexperienced candidates.

If you are from a well established family. Cool. Life is yours. Preferably a master's degree is a good option than settling for a job. You will gain knowledge and exposure to industry abroad will be greater. Take your exams as soon as possible and apply if you have a rich dad.

"Never settle."

If you are from a middle class family, I am missing an exact and precise suggestion. If you really want to live a luxurious life, go ahead and earn your master's degree for wear and tear. If you want to settle for what you want and do not want your parents to find themselves in serious situations or troublesome problems, then put yourself at work and try to move up in your company so that some can sponsor your further studies if your position demands it.

I hope this will help.

And don't rush your decisions. Take your time, talk to as many as possible. Remember that it is a one-time payment at the Aston Martin showroom versus a monthly installment paid at a Maruthi Suzuki car company.

I think it is absolutely okay to opt for higher education after you have gained some experience in the related field. I myself wish to pursue higher studies as I am about to complete my postgraduate degree in two months. But I would rather work for at least a year. It also gives you financial backing that you might need when you decide on higher education. Also, theoretical knowledge is at its best when complemented by practical experience, and since you would already have experience on the job, it could prove advantageous, especially in the development sector.

However, if you are a woman and are not married as of now, this becomes critical whether you will be able to pursue your dreams or not because in most Indian families (there are exceptions), it is a preconceived notion that after marriage, to continue with education it is not possible. So, plan accordingly. All the best!

After graduation, which direction to go mainly depends on which course you graduated from.

Since that information is not mentioned here, I will go with the 2 options mentioned.

Preparation for government work is one of the most competitive things to pursue today. There is a lot of competition in this direction. To do this, you must have a firm mindset, passion and, most importantly, patience. Because it is possible that you will fail several attempts in this competition.

Doing higher studies in the same field in which you have completed your graduation will require your interest, otherwise it is of no benefit. Following higher studies in management will give you a happy path to enter different industries in addition to your stream at graduation. Again, getting into a good university for an MBA will require hard work.

In both cases, you will have to work hard. If you are patient, go to the government exam preparation; Otherwise, score well in higher education and get a safe start to your career.

I hope this helps!

Thanks 😊

Good question.

The decision to go to work or pursue higher education should be decided based on these factors:

  1. Appetite for more knowledge
  2. Financial needs
  3. Ability to support more expenses for higher education.
  4. Established professional goals:
    1. Be in academics
    2. Be in consulting

The decision has to evolve from within based on the above factors.

This will be a very personalized decision and will vary from case to case.

Hope you get some guidance on your inquiry.

Thank you very much for the A2A.

Happy decision making!

If you are assigned to a good product company (like Google, Microsoft, Amazon, etc.) and you are going to work on a product, go ahead and get a few years of experience under your belt. From what you know, you can decide 2 years later that you want to do an MBA. If not, go for an M.Tech or MS now, but keep in mind that there are few very good options in India. (Older IIT and IISc Bangalore are). Try to do your MS from the US if you can get into a decent university.
