hi
i am about to complete me B.E in computer engineering within 2 months, currently i am getting a job from TCS and my marks in gate are not good(only 35) i also gave cat just to try without any preparation and got 119(95 percentile)
i have two options either do the job with TCS or drop one year and prepare for CAT and GATE again and do masters in a good college, i am confused about what i should do, thing is if i get into job right now i don’t think that i would be able to go for study again, also should i go for any mid tier college instead of waiting for a year for good colleges
please help

- either CAT or GATE . Why go for both preparation ? first decide which field you should go for ,not just for a master degree .
- some people suggest to for for job for 2-3 year then one year preparation(optional) then CAT and MBA. job experience counts .
- If you aim for good PSU job then GATE preparation is good to go for.

Telling from personal experience of working for 9+ years in IT industry: Go for MBA and that too from a good college or else after 10 years you will be looking for ways to increase your salary.
Don’t think TCS would be offering you more than 4 LPA as a fresher. So, if you’ve financial support from your family then drop 1 year and prepare hard and go for MBA.

That is what i am thinking, if i start with TCS (3.36 Lakhs CTC) even after 5 years i would barely be able to get 10-15 lpa so i don’t want to start from there, i have support from family for 1 year so i think i can risk it.

You need your family to support you for 1 year + 2 more years during your MBA or you should be ready to take education loan for your MBA.

15 LPA after 5 years in IT when you’re starting at 3.36 LPA is quite optimistic blush

Yes that is also keeping me back from getting that tcs job
My brother when he was in 11th started a local mobile shop with just 1 lakh investment 2 years later he is making 100-150k per month
And here i have invested way more money and time i think a bit extra is worth a shot.

On a side note: It looks like nothing has changed from salary given to freshers in last 10 years.
I got placed in Infy in 2008, got offer letter for 3.25 LPA in 2009. Started working since 2010 and now in 2019, still freshers are getting 3.36 LPA.

A proper business man with proper business mind can mint money, a business man with hard work can flourish, but there are risk, which you don’t have to take as asalaried person, so don’t compare, life will become not so pleasent, he made his choice and you made yours.
