I am a BCom graduate and have appeared for CET. However, I have heard that the salary is not good after a regular MBA. I am intersted in pursuing CS, but I don’t know how to go about it. Please help
I would advise you not to pass judgements on courses based on what people told you. It is true that there is an excess supply of MBA’s & hence the job market is more competitive. Thus salaries tend to be low in cases where the MBA passouts do not have a great competence to show. You can derive a good career post MBA if you have added value to yourself over the 2 year study leading to an MBA. ICWA, CS & CA are very good professional courses that many pursue after BCom and are largely self study courses with optimum contact classes organised by the respective associations. More details about CS are at http://www.icsi.edu/.
I am a graduate in Home Science from Tamil Nadu Agricultural University. Now I am planning to do Post Graduation in Foods and Nutrition from the same university. What would be my career options after the course?
You can seek careers as a dietician and nutritionist in the hotel industry or even in the hospitals. You could also be en expert in food & nutrition and advise people to follow healthier lifestyles. You can seek careers in the food manufacturing companies in the areas such a new recipes, quality management and food safety and nutrition. You could also be a scientist and research on new nutrients and natural food preservatives that could benefit mankind.
