I have heard that Gulf countries have a demand for English teachers. Which course would help me get a job abroad?

A Master’s in English literature would be most useful to seek such opportunities abroad. A Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in education too would be relevant. However, you need to have some years of work experience before you try for such jobs. You could also explore options for jobs related to voice and accent training.


I am pursuing BTech in Electrical and Electronics. What are the opportunities available after BTech? Specifically, is MTech or opting for a job in a PSU better? I would also like to know the odds of succeeding in the latter.

Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering is the entrance test that you must write to seek admissions into the MTech programmes at the Indian Institute of Technology, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Thiruvananthapuram, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, National Institute of Technology and such institutions of repute. You can complete your Master’s and then seek a job, which will give you a solid career foundation. You can also seek a job in a public sector company after completion of your Master’s. Make decisions based on your aptitude and interests.
