What is better to choose between vet or bpharm (I am a gen category student).According to my research I came to know that in today's market the bpharm graduates are not even considered as reputated pharmacists,after the degree too they get placements of 12k-15k per month only and growth even after a master's is not much. Whereas in vet gov vacancies are open but will everyone get the gov jobs ? Also in coming years what are the demands of these both fields and what is better to choose
Ans: Hi,
It seems there may be some misunderstanding and disappointment regarding the analysis of job opportunities in the pharmaceutical field. It's important to note that the pharmaceutical sector still holds promising prospects. However, it is essential for candidates to acquire in-depth knowledge. Completing a B.Pharm alone does not guarantee comprehensive expertise. It's essential to delve beyond the basic surface-level knowledge obtained during undergraduate studies. I'm unaware of your state of residence and the college where you pursued your B.Pharm.

Key locations with a strong pharmaceutical industry presence include Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Ahmedabad. Chennai also has a few reputable pharmaceutical companies, albeit in limited numbers. It's crucial to consider your career choice rather than just a job. What is your preference: IT, Marketing/Sales, or Core Pharma? In IT, the remuneration is considerably higher in comparison to core pharmaceutical roles, but sustainability may be a concern. On the other hand, Sales/Marketing requires hard work but offers significantly better remuneration, e.g., INR 6-8L per annum. If the pharmaceutical industry is your preference, starting packages for fresh B. Pharm graduates typically range between INR 15,000 to 25,000.

Ultimately, the decision is yours to make. I wish you the best for your future endeavors.

Career Counsellor - Answered on Jul 20, 2024

Hi sir, I have a few questions regarding the graduation program. I am currently working as a Data Analyst and have an undergraduate background (10+3 - Diploma in Civil Engineering) with over 15 years of work experience in various industries and roles. I am planning to join a BBA course that aligns with my work profile. The reasons for this decision are as follows: 1. Many MNC companies have made it mandatory for candidates to have a minimum of 15 years of education. While I understand that companies have their criteria, it is disappointing that extensive work experience is often overlooked in favor of a graduation certificate, which nowadays can sometimes be easily obtained without real merit. 2. A graduation degree is also essential for overseas job opportunities, and it has been my dream to work abroad for 3-5 years. Considering the above reasons, I have decided to pursue a BBA course. However, I am facing some challenges: a. Having completed my studies in 2008, I am out of touch with academic pursuits and have concentration issues, which may make it difficult for me to pass exams. Nonetheless, I understand that I need to overcome this and focus on my studies to achieve my dream. b. I have two options for the BBA course: online mode and distance education (offline mode). I am unsure which mode will better support my goal of securing a job in an MNC or an overseas opportunity. c. My close circle has suggested IGNOU University, stating that its certificate has a good reputation in the market. Therefore, I am uncertain whether to choose an online mode (such as SRM Institute) or an offline mode (such as IGNOU or KSOU University). Could you please guide me on this matter? Thank you.
Ans: Ravichandra Sir,

1) KSOU is individually good. But as you have gained vast working experience, it is suggested to find out other better options to choose from.

2) You have rightly mentioned that IGNOU Certificate has a good reputation in the market and IGNOU provides comprehensive and well-structured textbooks and study material. However, due to time constraints, you will not have much time to go through each page and take notes, etc.

3) So, it is suggested to go for an online BBA Course with live/recorded online lectures. Here, you will have to check & ensure:

(a) the minimum attendance required
(b) timings of the live sessions should not clash with your office timings.
(c) timeline to submit assignments / Project Reports
(d) fees payable / affordability
(e) Soft copies of Materials provided
(f) Are there any other reputed universities/institutes that provide BBA online courses (other than SRM/Manipal)? On LinkedIn, recently there was news that IIM-Bangalore has a plan to start BBA-Online by September 2024. Please keep checking its website from now onwards.
(g) Try to join a reputed university/institute & research more for a month to choose the best one to reflect in your Resume.

Keeping in view the above factors, please choose the most suitable Institute / University and pursue your BBA.

All the BEST for your Bright Future, Sir.
