Take Career Counselling
I have completed my BE in computers and MBA in Finance. MBA I completed from the sikkim manipal distance university as I did not want to be a student any more. I chose finance to learn how to handle money as my dad is a businessman and wanted to get realtime understanding as he always says learn to handle money. I completed MBA while working as a technical support engineer at hewlett packard. Now I really want to spend my life doing a job I like which is very hard to decide.please help me.
Thank you for approaching career counsellors at CareerGuide.com and i am certainly happy for you to take the right decision to seek our guidance. I see you are a BEng in computer science and also hold an MBA by distance in Finance. I have two suggestions for you and you choose whichever suits you.
First of all you need to understand that MBA is a professional degree and there is no point in studying it if it is not a classroom based study. Especially finance, accounts, operations needs more discussion and practice. You need a classroom environment where they teach you and let you discuss with fellow MBA class students. Now a days business schools also adopt case study method where they give you real world business cases and you should try to solve. Students either solve individually or be a part of group to do discussions. If you had chosen to study MBA in HRM then no problem. As said, finance and accounts are more practiced based subjects and a distance education will not give you the required practice level.
But dont worry. I suggest you two ways. One, join your dads business. Try getting into his finance department and take responsibility. Ask your dad to support you now and then but not leave you all alone. Apply all the financial theories you studied in you MBA where ever possible. This will give you hands on work experience and improve your financial skills. You being part of your dads business can also help him.
Alternatively, try applying for jobs in finance and focus on entry level roles only. There are many start ups who could be interested in your profile. You may also try checking for opportunities with Ernst and Young as they have plenty of finance entry level careers. You could probably work in a company from an entry level finance role and grow your career. After you have achieved master skills in finance you can quit your job and take care of your dads company.
I also see you took an MBA course because dad asked you. See if you really like this stream. Else you can feel free to continue your current tech support job itself. Try to do well in that job and later do a full time MBA or part time MBA but not a distance MBA course. But take at least five years time overall to do full time MBA. It will complement your career well.
