Career Guidance - MBA or Engineering degree may not help you

MBA and Engineering has become a buzzword in the first decade of the 21st century. Every college and university has started BBA and MBA courses. The gullible students, who are not much aware of the ground realities, have taken these courses with much enthusiasm and hope of getting good job opportunities after completing their courses. The Indian Education System has a legacy where it was difficult to get admission in an engineering, medical or management course. More than half of the battle was won if the student gets admitted to an engineering, medical or management institute. Apart from IITs and IIMs, the reputation and standing of the institutes was not so important as most of the institutes and colleges were run by Government. 

Once the education sector has opened up, the education system has undergone a paradigm shift but the legacy still continued for some more time. Engineering and management institutes popped up in every nook and corner of the country. Admission in every stream of education has become possible without any hindrance. Merit still commands a premium but you can still be an engineer or an MBA even if you are not brilliant enough. A large section of Indian parents still come from rural background who do not understand the basic fact that merely getting admission in an engineering or MBA course does not guarantee a job. They have golden dreams and high hopes from their kids. They think that the kid will bring them out of the misery and penury once he becomes and engineering or management graduate without realising that the financial expenses they are incurring on their education may brake their back.

We have millions of engineering and management graduates who are either unemployed or employed at low paying jobs where their engineering or management degree is of no use. After spending a few lac rupees and precious 3-4 years of career, how painful it is to not to get a suitable job. 

So, before plunging into the rigmarole of these courses, think twice. The few points which should be taken into consideration before making a career choice are:
a) What is the area of your interest where you think you can put your 100%. 
b) Map your capabilities and competitive skills, do not be part of the herd. Merely selecting a course because all your friends are going for it is not a good idea. Do not be afraid of taking a tough and practical decision at this stage instead of regretting later on. Accept the fact if you are not very brilliant and chose the course where you can do better as per your capabilities.
c) Carefully review the placement track record and ranking of the institution. Talk to people who have completed their studies. Do not fall for false promises.
