After completing B.Com I was planning to do Masters in Finance and accounting (with embedded ACCA) in UK. But now I feel that having some experience before doing masters is better considering that employment after Masters will hinge on prior work experience. Is my thought process correct? Though I see job openings for freshers in Bangalore, I am not aware of the success ratio because I recently relocated to Bangalore with family. Should I look for a job or pursue higher studies?

Dear Ashwini ji, I returned from Gulf after a decade, my work was partially data analysis using advanced excel. Now, I am 40, unemployed, almost about to complete online Msc in data science from an indian university (now I am almost well versed with different tools). Should I start looking for work in India now?, with a cut throat competition, if I am lucky I'll end up with a fresher salary! Or should I go for another masters in Germany (cost ain't issue), return to India and then look for job? Firstly, what if after 2 years (I'll be older!) market conditions are worse? Secondly, I had earlier career gaps, so even after masters from Germany, I am guessing major MNCs wont ever consider me? Waiting your answers.
Ans: Hi Sir/ Madam,

Sorry for the delay in the response.

Given the current situation it contains several factors hence you will have to consider your goal, market conditions and your own preferences. There is no direct solution and importantly it has to be your own decision.

As you have already completed MSC Data science (niche field) please check the current market situation.
Speak to experts in the similar industry and do your own assessment.
Before joining MSC course you would have thought of something why you want to pursue the same. What is the goal you have in mind.
Before pursuing the course in germany understand that it will involve cost and time. Again what is the goal of doing.
On the career gaps you mentioned- be prepared on the responses by having some rational around the same as to why you have those gaps. Responses should be compelling.

While they say age is just a number it does have its own cons during job hunt. Be realistic, practical and do pros and cons either ways. At the end the decision should be yours alone depending on your personal circumstances and career goals.

Hope this helps

Asked by Anonymous - Jan 09, 2024Hindi
I am doing a Bachelors in Computer Engineering from Mumbai University (Swami Vivekanand College), and am considering doing a Master's in Computer Science from USA. Would you recommend that I take some work experience before joining the Master's course, or should I immediately join the Master's course after my degree here?
Ans: The decision of whether to gain work experience before pursuing a Master's in Computer Science from USA depends on various factors and personal preferences. Here are some considerations to help you make an informed decision:

Pros of gaining work experience before Master's:
1. Practical Skills: Work experience can provide you with practical skills and real-world knowledge that can complement your academic background.

2. Networking Opportunities: Building professional networks during work can be valuable for your future career. Networking can open up opportunities, provide mentorship, and offer insights into the industry.

3. Financial Stability: Working for a few years can help you save money and make you more financially stable, which can be beneficial during your Master's program.

4. Clarification of Goals: Work experience can help you clarify your career goals and interests, allowing you to tailor your Master's program accordingly.

Pros of pursuing Master's immediately:
1. Continuous Learning Momentum: Going directly into a Master's program maintains the momentum of academic learning. If you feel motivated and ready for more advanced coursework, this could be an advantage.

2. Timely Entry into the Job Market: Completing your Master's earlier may allow you to enter the job market sooner, especially if your desired career path requires an advanced degree.

3. Fresh Knowledge: If you're concerned about your academic knowledge becoming outdated, pursuing a Master's immediately can ensure you are equipped with the latest skills and technologies.

4. Specialization: If you have a clear idea of the specialization you want to pursue and your Bachelor's program did not cover it adequately, going directly into a Master's program can allow you to focus on your specific area of interest.

Factors to consider:
1. Career Goals: Consider your long-term career goals and whether work experience aligns with them or if further education is more beneficial.

2. Financial Situation: Evaluate your financial situation and determine if you can afford to pursue a Master's immediately or if working first would be more practical.

3. Industry Requirements: Some industries may prefer or require candidates with work experience, while others may prioritize advanced degrees.

4. Personal Readiness: Reflect on your personal readiness for further education. Are you motivated and prepared for the academic challenges of a Master's program?

Ultimately, both paths have their merits, and the right choice depends on your individual circumstances and goals. It may be helpful to speak with professionals in your desired field, mentors, and academic advisors for personalized advice.
