Swati, Pursue in your core area of Engg. Are u going to waste your Engg degree? HR is totally different from Engg and I wonder why you chose HR as specilisation in your MBA. Pon

Dear Swati,
There are 2 types of benefits any of us can get from our careers.
The first is personal satisfaction & fulfilment, while the second is professional satisfaction & fulfilment.
And, the interesting this is this - they are both only possible by doing the same thing. And, that thing is:
Don't worry about what opportunities you can get based on your qualifications. Instead, figure out what it is that you really want to do. Figure out why is it that you invested your time, effort, and money in doing a BTech and now an MBA? What did you have in mind when you commenced these programs. Or, was it the case that you simply followed what your best friend, neighbour, uncle's child etc... were doing (you get the point I am making here).
So, first figure out what it is that will make you happy. Worry about your qualifications later.
And, in the meantime, send me your CV on
Take care!

I will answer Pon on your behalf; please correct me if I am wrong, as I did my graduation over 50 years ago; opportunities those days were not like the present doc.com age.

A number of us go for engineering or medical, as those were the field that paid more. After graduating, I also thought that we had to stay in that field. However, electrical engineering did not satisfy my interest and changed the field to Industrial Engineering. Due to problems of opportunities, did a Masters in Mgt Sciences and went to teach. I have enjoyed that more than any of my previous jobs.

Thus, one need not worry what the basic degree was in. Most of the professors that teach Operations Management/Operations Research have a basic degree in engineering.

Have a nice day.

Mr.Simhan, Your contention may be suitable for teaching line. In India, the growth prospects of Engg professional is better than HR field. I meant in that way. Pon

Dear Pon,
I was not talking about seeking monetary satisfaction, but personal satisfaction. Money is important, but not everything in life. So, one has to seek what satisfies them most. In the UK, where I have worked, industry pays better wages than the teaching profession. It may be true of other countries, including India.
Have a nice day.

I would tend to agree with Simhan--Money is IMPORTANT in life, but not THE important thing in life.
At the end of the day, what finally matters is 'Satisfaction/Fulfillment'--like Gaurav Sareen mentioned.
Unfortunately, many of the present generation make decisions based on 'this profession leads to good salaries, stature, etc & this doesn't' OR 'this profession pays MORE than the other profession' logic. Not much thought is given to the very crucial fact 'whether the particular profession SUITS HIM/HER or not'--which is linked with Satisfaction/Fulfillment.
Coming to swati ohri's query, a lot reg her next step depends on her answer to Gaurav Sareen's query--what made her to take-up MBA after BTech. And that too in HR.

well all my dear friends, thanks a lot for your concern actually when i did btech from electronics and communication ,it was the best discipline that was going on that time so i entered into it. after that as i was not aware of the job oppurtunities in engineering, i gave mat exam and got the admission.at that point of time i was not aware that doing a degree in electronics and going for mba(hr) will have no link but now as i am searching for jobs i am getting the jobs where a normal graduate is also getting the same salary as offered to me. so i am feeling like i am not able to make use of my btech degree in my professional career which is making me feel sad. though my btech degree is powerful than any other graduate degree but i am not able to make use of it.
