“The future depends on what you do today.” — Mahatma Gandhi
Planning what to do for your career can be very difficult. Especially with so many options available, there’s a fair chance that students might get confused and lose their focus over what to do. Hence we organised a Webinar on “MS or MBA or Job: Planning Your Career”

Objective

Our main motive was to help students understand what path would offer which kind of benefits to them. The main aim was to help students have a clear mind in order to understand where their interest lies.

Event Details

This webinar was conducted by an eminent ACM speaker, Mr. Navin Kabra who has completed his bachelors from IIT Bombay in the Computer Science field and holds a Phd from the University of Wisconsin. In his past, he has worked for large and small companies situated in the USA and India respectively, and now he is currently a co-founder and CTO of Reliscore. com a software startup, and the creator of PuneTech.com a portal for the tech community in Pune, India

Couple of days prior to the event, we conducted a survey, wherein we asked the students to fill up a form and ask their questions or anything related to their future career planning. We had an overwhelming response from the students.

1. Mba after college or Mba after job which is more beneficial ?
2. If I chose masters after 2-3 years of work experience, would that be helpful for me during my masters. ?
3. Is the level of exposure same as what we get in our graduation, if we do it from abroad or from India?
4. Can you explain the difference between ctc and package ?
5. When is the right time to apply for a post-graduation course? Right after graduation or should we first get some job experience?
6. I want to do post graduation but if I get a good job then I'll probably plan on working for a couple of years and then do my masters. So should I apply for PG courses in BE?
7. Would it be better to do a job and then go for PG or go for PG first?
8. What are the various career options after engineering?
9. Can you suggest good colleges/universities for MS/Mtech in and outside India ?
10. Is a Masters or MBA degree really necessary for a better job profile?
11. Can I do MS abroad after completing MTech in India? Also what are some better options to study after MTech?

Based on the questionnaire, our speaker had prepared a presentation. He answered each and every question one by one. By the end of the webinar every student at least knew where their interest lies and had a clear mindset of what lies ahead of them.
