Hi Shruti,   Try to ask yourself these questions, which job motivates me ? What kind of jobs that your Uncle or Aunt does that inspires you ... based on that you have to select your courses after your 10th.    If possible, take a psychometric test with a help of a counselor, or talk to your favourite teachers or elders, ask them about how they enjoy their job. Try to learn about different Jobs.. what they do everyday etc. That will help you to select from few of your interesting options.   This is the right age to learn about different career options and to get in to one st

Hi Abhishek,    Hope you are doing good. Good that you have started researching about available jobs in the market.  As MBA passed out students directly expect manager level jobs, this seems to be a bit tricky for you now. MBA IT specialization will come good only if you have very strong industry experience in the computer science related field. This IT manager kind of roles are done by people who have about 10 years experience in the software industry, thats why you see that. You dont have to loose heart. All you do is start as a trainee software engineer OR any kind of IT role

Hi Vignesh,  Please share a little more information so that counsellors have sufficient information to guide you further. This is more like a generalised statement.  Suggest you to use free resources like 80000 hours.  Ben

Hi Ishaa,  This can happen to many other students too, when they are not sure about finding their inherent interests. Try to take a psychometric test with the help of a experience career counselor, near you or any teacher / professor who trust. Finding your core interest areas can be tough if you have not done your own home work on it. Try asking questions like which is the subjects I am finding relatively easier to understand. When I am less bored. Finding your own interest area is key to success in a career as you have to do these things repeatedly in life.  You should have a desir

Ans:

I Guess you are trying to take some thing which is not available widely in this region.  India still is not having open education options like in the US or other Developed Countries. Education itself here is more theoretical than practical. So Doing Dual degree here in an average institution wont help.  Thats Why we dont see top institutions not offering such degrees in India.    There seems to be a hurry in taking few things together, so that you have more options. Practical ideas will be to do your MS in regular and MBA in a distance mode.    Hope this helps! Be

Ans:

A resume is a ideal place / Opportunity to exhibit your designing talents.    Show to the world in the shortest possible time, about your skills.. say a few seconds.. that is the time most will have to look at your profile, in case they land up there for some reasons.    Try using free sites, pages, create a good portfolio as suggested earlier. But just have an ordinary profile wont take you anywhere.. It has to be really innovative, creative, eye-catchy and of course, your original work!!   Good luck! Ben

Ans:

I guess your confusion is more about finding your natural interest areas first. You can try talking to a career counselor near your location, or try calling any one here for a detailed session and one by one you can get in to the final questions..    Ideally your Under graduation selection should match your natural interest / inclination in the subject , for you to come successful in that.    Business is  a very wide subject / term to use, so you have to try to confine that to few subjects , like business in textiles, or business in computers something like that atleas
