Career Opportunities After B.Tech
Just after the graduation, it is likely that most of the students are confused about what they will be doing next. B.Tech, being a professional course, has great placement opportunities but doing a job after your graduation is not the only option available. There are several other options that can be pursued by the students after completing their B.Tech, some of them are discussed below:
- Opt for Higher Studies:
Most of the students after completing their B.Tech generally opt for M.Tech courses with expertise in any preferred field and excel in it. However, if you believe that M.Tech is not your cup of tea, then there are several other short-term courses that you can pursue adding some specialized qualification to your resume. Depending on your interests you can even pursue M.sc or any other diploma courses. Top engineering colleges like Indian Institute of Technology (IITs), National Institute of Technology (NITs) and other CFTIs grant admissions on the basis of GATE score. However, several private universities conduct their own Entrance Exams along with accepting the GATE scores for granting admissions into various M.Tech courses.
- Prepare for Civil Services:
The Civil Service Examination is one of the toughest and most attempted competitive examinations and you should not give up trying just because of its difficulty and competition level. For cracking such a highly competitive examination you need to be highly focussed towards your studies and you should inculcate the spirit of never giving up. The Engineering graduates can also apply for IES exam in addition to the civil services. A government job could safeguard your future with better facilities. After qualifying the examination, an interview is conducted which you have to qualify before proceeding with the training process.
- Be your Own Boss – Entrepreneurship:
One of the best options would be to start off your own business just after completing your graduation. It gives you the freedom to express your creativity and ideas. However, this path is not all sunshine and rainbows. It requires a lot of hard work and dedication to start your own business. If you have enough capital and a great business idea, then entrepreneurship could be the best thing that you could opt for. Most importantly, this option should not be considered as a way to become rich and popular in less time which is not always possible. There would be frequent challenges in your path with ups and downs that you need to overcome.
- Switch to business management domain:
If business and management have ever been an interesting field for you and if you have ever realized that pursuing an engineering course was never a right call then it’s not too late to switch over to a profile that you feel is the right for you. MBA is among the most preferred courses in India and provides a lot of opportunities. Fields like Marketing, Human Resource, Digital Marketing, Sales, International Relations and are some of the most popular and preferred specializations. For getting into IIMs and other top management institutes, you need to qualify CAT (Common Admission Test) with an excellent percentile. Various top private institutes offer Management courses through their own Admission Test like NMAT, XAT, IRMA, SNAP, TISS, CMAT and more.
- Studying Abroad:
If you are willing to explore and experience an entirely new culture while studying then opting for universities abroad to pursue your higher education could be the best option. Along with your studies, you could even check the availability of various fellowships in categories like Research and Development. You need to qualify exams like TOEFL and GRE if you aim for studying abroad. On the basis of your TOEFL and GRE scores, scholarships are also provided for full or half funding of your education.
