Most of the students dream of earning a lot of money after their graduation.
But the question is - Will your degree fetch you the job you desire? How important it is to analyse the degree you are pursuing?
Let us start with Engineering degree:
More than 14 lakh students who pass class 12th exam plan to go for engineering degree every year.
Getting the job after obtaining an engineering degree is also a tough task. Only 10% to 20% of the engineering graduates will get a job, through campus placements. The remaining students struggle to get the right job. Some may get their desired job while others may go to the government sector and some may opt for higher studies in foreign universities.
According to the reports, around 7% to 10% of graduates don't get any jobs at all.
It is the toughest discipline in India. Only 5% of the top rankers opt for medicine. Perhaps, there are more female candidates who opt for medical courses, than male candidates.
Most of them will become doctors in their respective colleges itself. Some may go out to have their own clinical practices.
Bachelor's degree in Arts, Commerce and Science:
These are the disciplines which help the students to gain knowledge and training that is useful for the rest of their life.
These degrees help them to think critically, develop effective communication skills, creativity and independent judgement. It will also lead them to many diverse opportunities to find the right career in their disciplines.
In fact, for most of the jobs which are available in government and public sectors require only bachelor's degree with higher percentages.
Some of the key factors of consideration, as per hiring companies are:
Quality of Faculty
Quality of Students
Performance of Alumni
It is a common understanding that a bachelor's degree is a decent career move, although it is the minimum requirement for getting a job. Nevertheless, when you have a higher degree in hand, you could be potentially earning much more money, depending on the contribution you would be bringing into the industry where you belong.
There can always be opportunities, with your available knowledge and capabilities. But, investing it in the right direction matters much.
