Is it better to sit down for placements or go straight to higher education?

This answer is for people looking for engineering.

So after B.Tech, students have 3 main options to choose from:

  1. Work: based on services (TCS, Accenture, Wipro,….), Based on products (Microsoft, Google,… ..)
  2. M.Tech
  3. MBA

(Not including MS, UPSC preparation and entrepreneurship as not everyone's cup of tea :))

First, looking for a job or higher education is a personal choice. But if you have decided to pursue higher education, the following answer may help.

If you want to pursue an MBA as a higher degree, getting at least 2 years of work experience will go a long way during the MBA. You will know how an ind

If you want to pursue an MBA as a higher degree, getting at least 2 years of work experience will go a long way during the MBA. You will learn how an industry works, how a project is executed, the different phases of the product development life cycle, etc. This will also help you understand the area in which you are interested in pursuing an MBA. Also, having work experience before the MBA increases your chances of getting a good placement after the MBA (it also depends on the institute).

If you want to pursue M.Tech, work experience doesn't really matter that much. Also, at work you will learn a lot of new things that will be very different from what you learned at B.Tech (I know our education system is outdated: |). On the other hand, you must take the GATE exam, which is based entirely on the B.Tech curriculum. So you better go for fresh M.Tech after B.Tech.

Disclaimer: The answer above is based on personal experience and results may vary from person to person.

How can someone advise you which is better?

one thing is certain

Even when you want to pursue higher education, you must have a real world feel; it means that you must work for at least one or two years. for first-hand experience in a rapidly changing work environment. is more agile to be prepared to seek opportunities after passing higher grades

It depends on the university and the course you are taking.

In general, considering the next 10 years, it is advisable to complete PG as soon as possible, the reasons are mentioned below

Pre-PG experience is not considered in many cases

Once you start earning, you keep postponing studying, generally you can't focus on studying

You get better salaries after PG

The cost of PG increases every year

For better exposure you can also apply abroad, focus on your interest (specialization) and budget explore more at http://mbagdpi.com

Do according to your objective, planning and interest. If you are willing to go into any job, look for a placement; If not, think about college and prepare. Be determined, dedicated and confident to achieve your goal and move accordingly with all your enthusiasm and mental strength.

I suggest you sit down for the placements and look for a good job opportunity offered to you while at the same time researching the course you want to take. Today, there are many courses like MBA for working professionals from top institutes like ITM University that allow you to balance work and study.

Sitting for placements, I would suggest.

Please get the necessary amount of experience first, and then pursue higher studies, which will not only improve your theoretical knowledge, but also help you with your practical skills.

At the end of an academic year, most students are confused between opting for on-campus placements or higher studies. Before choosing the right path, a student should always focus on his long-term and short-term goals, as each individual has a different perspective.

Let's take a look at the pros and cons to get a better idea:

Advantages of on-campus placements;

  • Placements on campus give a sense of security, as you can participate in them even before graduation. It is a great opportunity for students who are eager to earn money and want to gain some experience sooner.

At the end of an academic year, most students are confused between opting for on-campus placements or higher studies. Before choosing the right path, a student should always focus on his long-term and short-term goals, as each individual has a different perspective.

Let's take a look at the pros and cons to get a better idea:

Advantages of on-campus placements;

  • Placements on campus give a sense of security, as you can participate in them even before graduation. It is a great opportunity for students who are eager to earn money and want to gain some experience before going on to higher studies, as it can also help them to get into the best institutions with all the additional theoretical and practical knowledge they have acquired. .
  • Graduate students don't have much industry exposure and especially when a university doesn't have many links to leading industries. With just completing one year in an industry, you can work harder on your analytical skills, soft skills, leadership skills, and leave with the ability to focus more strategically on your career.
  • It also increases your social circle as you will be introduced to people with diverse age groups and diversity. This eventually increases your connections and makes you more resourceful.

Cons;

  • Internship packages may be less compared to a student who has opted for internships after completing higher studies.
  • Some companies may prioritize hiring students with a status of at least a graduate degree rather than a student with only a bachelor's degree and less academic exposure.

Advantages of pursuing higher education;

  • Higher education in any field can be more beneficial for better company positions, salary packages, job security, and promotions.
  • Higher education includes more research work. Eventually, it helps you understand complex topics, think analytically, and communicate your ideas effectively. Hence, your credibility towards your company as an employee increases.
  • Investing in your education can be rewarding and helps you achieve your career goals and succeed in life with a sense of security and financial stability.

Cons;

  • Following higher education at the best institutes can be a financial problem, especially for students belonging to the weaker sections.
  • You learn a wide range of skills in the field and this can open up a wide range of unexplored opportunities that might not have been available while studying.

Hope this helps you choose the right path.

Well, I finally solved this question. This is the same question I asked my Placement Officer a few days ago. So I want to answer this question.

I'm passed out for batches of 2015. He was good at studios and just as good at programming. I did a lot of personal projects that included programming and design. When I was in college, my classmates and professors used to say that they would put me first in college before someone gets a job. I didn't believe them. I knew something was wrong and I won't get a job right after college. It was more of a sixth sense thing so I decided to learn

Well, I finally solved this question. This is the same question I asked my Placement Officer a few days ago. So I want to answer this question.

I'm passed out for batches of 2015. He was good at studios and just as good at programming. I did a lot of personal projects that included programming and design. When I was in college, my classmates and professors used to say that they would put me first in college before someone gets a job. I didn't believe them. I knew something was wrong and I won't get a job right after college. It was more of a sixth sense thing, so I decided to learn the real work that is done in company. I found out about CDAC from my cousin and signed up for the test. To my surprise, without preparations, I obtained 1352 AIR and was admitted to CDAC CHENNAI. I was very happy there and was learning.

But there was still some problem, I had less than 60% on my engineering degree. I studied hard and did everything I could, but I got stuck at 59 points. After entering CDAC, I learned that even small businesses prefer students to have 60% and I would have very few opportunities, even if I had any!

The pressure started to build, I started to get depressed. From September 2015 to March 2016 I was very depressed. I didn't get many calls, I got two calls where I failed. (I think the reason was CDAC's bias, any chennai cdac student can support this fact). Time passed and I stopped receiving calls. I was trained in embedded systems design. I was frustrated because inside of me I knew that I was better than the people who were placed just because they met the criteria for the interview (of course they also worked hard). I started looking for work. I did not leave any fields where I would not have requested. At some point in that time, for some reason I sent a message to TPO. The obvious reason was frustration, but he had many different problems. He promised us to bring at least 5 companies to Chennai before our curriculum ends or even after the curriculum ends. (He made this promise to the students with the fewest grades.) But then he forgot about it and started acting like we were a piece of shit. He started ignoring us. There were no signs that a company was coming to hire. Then I took that opportunity to channel my anger and move on to the next phase of my life. I asked him a serious question about the group (he was added to our watsapp group). Clearly, he did not respond to any and began to give generic answers and give reasons. Then I asked him the same question that you asked. He was still silent. I knew there was no way for the TPO to call the companies.

But one day I got a call from a start-up company doing Dot Net and PHP projects. I wasn't from that CS background. I was a typical ECE guy, I only knew C programming and microcontrollers / processors. But the interview went very well and they placed me. I am currently in my office at my desk writing this answer during the break.

From everything that happened to me in the past I understood some things that I want to share:

  1. People who don't get a college placement also work in one place or another. It's just that they get off to a slow start (read low wages) for a year.
  2. Hard work is necessary and important. But the luck factor plays a vital role in interviews. No matter how exceptional your interview was, you can still come out of it. I've been there doing that.
  3. If someone doesn't get a placement job, consider it a good event. Now, you will work in a small company, you will learn multiple technologies in the same amount of time and you will be very clear on concepts. Everyone gets a job after having some experience.
  4. Never run after money. The more you run after him, the more you will get stressed. Being in a small business and earning rs 0.00 per month. I definitely know what I am earning. I am gaining experience, techniques and tricks from my peers. Once he gets good at what he does, he can be paid twice as much as Sharma's aunt's son. : D

Everyone gets a job. Sooner or later. For best results, keep doing the good things, study hard, learn at least one thing every day. One day you will find yourself getting a job that you never thought you would get.

All the best. Good luck.

The answer is a clear NO. I'm not sure about the situation in your class. But 4 years ago, when I was in my senior year, many of my friends had to get one job or another due to their economic conditions. But there were, as always, some students whose sole goal was simply to show how smart and influential they are. They weren't interested in job prospects and some had their own businesses and some had aspirations like you to pursue higher education.

What happened as a result of them sitting down for placements? They got the job and denied it at the end of the year as

The answer is a clear NO. I'm not sure about the situation in your class. But 4 years ago, when I was in my senior year, many of my friends had to get one job or another due to their economic conditions. But there were, as always, some students whose sole goal was simply to show how smart and influential they are. They weren't interested in job prospects and some had their own businesses and some had aspirations like you to pursue higher education.

What happened as a result of them sitting down for placements? They got the job and denied it at the end of the year as they are unable to do so during the course of our senior year. So it's a two-way loss for both the company that interviewed us and the students who really needed the job. I also wanted to pursue higher education, but still wanted to sit down for interviews on campus. I selected the companies that I want to sit in and then made sure to read the list of my friends who register with those companies. If there are people who really need it, then I did not register.

I sat in a Mumbai company. I got into it, but there were two other guys with me who were also selected. Of the three, I didn't have a lot of technical knowledge, but I had a good communication advantage over the other two who were still technically sound. But the job requirement was marketing, so it was better to prefer me. As soon as the day ended, I declined the offer saying that I would choose to go to higher education once I have an experience of about one or two years. I'm still sure the other two would have definitely passed even I was there, but I still don't want to play by the odds.

So make sure you don't fill the position of someone else who urgently needs a job. I know I may seem naive. But this will also help you focus better. Basically, we cannot focus on many things. Better to have a goal and work on it.

Life is not over yet, it feels like there is nothing left in the world. This post contains the story of a (failed IITian who took revenge on life and became the most successful person)

#IITian # AIR-45_JEE #Computer_Science #Low_GPA # Unemployed ... #IIM # Gold_Medalist ... # IPS ... # IAS ...

At IITs, especially the old ones in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, if you're the one who didn't get the job, it feels like you've had the world looted.

Many of them suffer from severe depression. Since you live in the hostel and see that your fellow Batch members are getting a good salary, it feels like it's all over. Nothing has been left in this world.

But my friend, it is not the end of life. Sometimes it is bad luck. The locations are mostly games based on luck.

Let me give you an example. IIT Kanpur Computer Science Student Mr. Gaurav Agarwal currently (IAS)

He had a brilliant career in his childhood, as all children dreamed of. He had a very good percentage on the tenth board, the twelfth board guess what he topped IIT-JEE with flying colors, ranked AIR 45 😎😎. It was the most beautiful moment for anyone who has ever faced JEE with such rank.

This is the best part where you got admission to the Department of Computer Science at IIT Kanpur. Now everyone was like "Ab toh 1 crore ka PKG leke nikalega humara beta". O hona bhi chahiye yeh expectations thanks to our means. Gaurav Sir in his interview said that he began to be notorious and started playing Age of Empire. Spend the day and night playing. He is not concentrating on his studies.

From being a topper no, you are living a mediocre life at IIT Kanpur. It has less than 7 CGPA. And you can't expect this from someone so brilliant. Then come last year's placements. He got a job with this CGPA though. But that work was very low according to the potential that is hidden inside.

But he was not worried about remaining notorious but that he had a major setback. He failed a subject for which he lost his job. What can be worse than that?

When you are such a brilliant student and IIT Kanpur Computer Science. It is like a dream for many. When Sir's lotmates earn in lakhs and millions of rupees, he was unemployed.

This could have dropped him into a severe depression. But this is not the case with Gaurav Sir. He realized his potential (as Lord Hanuman did in the Ramayana) he realized his power. He prepared for CAT he scored above the 99.5th percentile, but guess what none of the IIMs admitted him due to the sins he committed at IIT Kanpur. What can be worse than this?

But Sir still did not lose the battle. He took his sword and entered the battlefield of the Common Aptitude Test again. He got the 99.7+ percentile and Guess what IIM Lucknow gave him another shot at his life.

It was as if God had re-marked his path with flowers after facing so many difficulties. Now Gaurav Sir is a completely changed person. He began to study as he was doing during IIT JEE preparation.

Guess what the IIM Lucknow gold medalist was 😎😎. This is called β€œWhen life hits you hard, you hit life a lot harder”… Pocketed a pack of 80 lacs from Campus.

He later quit his highly paid job. When he returned to India, he had only two attempts at civil service left, as he was 28 years old. Therefore, on your first attempt, you scored around 240 on the UPSC civil service exam. It was incorporated as the Police Service of India. 😎😎 ...... This is called loot ......

Finally, on his second attempt, which was his last due to age, he scored AIR 1 in India's toughest exam, UPSC Civil Services. Now guess what the IAS officer is currently.

So it's like I've taken Life's best revenge. Whatever life had stolen from him in the past. He has taken twice as much from Life.

So it is never too late. When you're not high, you may feel like the game is over. But is not. Life is long and precious.

The story of Mr. Gaurav Agrawal has motivated me a lot.

Edition 1: - Thank you for more than 500 votes in favor.

You are not alone. Your story will coincide with that of many others. Be patient and have faith in yourself (easy to say). You will weave your success story (that's the truth).

Be it any institute, including the most prestigious, as the IITs have their share of stories (I can say this responsibly since I have been in the placement cell and know few of other centers). Even all the IIM stories are not that great in terms of location (although they are located, their aspirations don't always coincide).

You are not alone. Your story will coincide with that of many others. Be patient and have faith in yourself (easy to say). You will weave your success story (that's the truth).

Be it any institute, including the most prestigious, as the IITs have their share of stories (I can say this responsibly since I have been in the placement cell and know few of other centers). Even all the IIM stories are not that great in terms of location (although they are located, their aspirations don't always coincide). Think of the UPSC applicants, after their years of dedicated effort, if they don't make it through the crucial interviews they have to repeat from the preliminaries! The list goes on. So go ahead. Not getting a location on campus can be due to the uneven proportion of companies coming to your campus, the choice of recruiters, a bit of luck, and many other factors.

Remember you deserved it, which is why you got admission in the first case and efficient, which is why you completed the course and sat down for placements!

You will get the job, if not in a single off-campus try, but after a few tries. Keep up the momentum, we all strive. There are success stories with efforts everywhere. You will be among them.

I suppose many have suggested to you and you have probably been doing this: (a) Connecting with your college seniors and they may be your Teachers. Contacts can be of help (b) Re-write your CV highlighting your core and applying on job portals (c) Walk-in interviews (d) Reorientation and development of your skills, etc.

However, there are a few other pertinent areas you can reflect on in addition to your job search. I'm not sure of his background or his areas of interest. So answering, assuming you have a grade X with aspiration Y.

(a) Do you really want a job (full time from 9 am to 6 pm) after your studies or do you want to do something else in life? Start over from scratch, think from scratch if you really want a job or not. Are you fully satisfied with the course you have followed? Would you like to pursue the higher education of your choice? If you're really up for it, prepare for it.

(b) Now, if you have time, train your mind with a good routine (assuming you don't have it in your hostel!). Get up early, keep your circadian cycle, and spend some time getting fit. Help ! Once you're at work, this routine will act as a stress buster.

(c) Why not find a good internship in your domain than a full-time job? It will give you an idea of ​​the work environment and your internship will continue to count as an experience. It also gives everyone the important buffer time to think (about the race, more options about mastery, and about yourself).

(d) I can try other platforms (more level playing field in all sectors) like Teach for India (I am in no way connected to them) or some social start-ups. Get connected and contribute your value to society. Helps boost morale. You will definitely realize how important you are to society and how well you have formed through your studies (a single or few failed interviews cannot judge that).

(e) Don't indulge in socializing too much when you're still thinking about what to do next. Be selective in your company (only friends / family who are motivating enough), at least until you figure out what you want to do.

(f) Read, a lot (relevant and that gives you motivation). Sometimes a few random reads help.

(g) You may even be able to enroll in some correspondence courses (relevant). As a suggestion, you can consult the remote programs of IGNOU. They have a huge list with all the accredited credentials. I'm not arguing that this helps you get a job. However, this will definitely satisfy and increase your mastery of knowledge.

It is just a phase that will go over time. However, when it goes away (after some time), it will give you enough strength and perseverance to deal with other difficulties later in life.

Health !
