At the outset my best wishes to all the final year engineering graduates appearing for their final year examinations in May/June 2017.
I am sure along with your studies you are also thinking about what to do next? It’s a critical question and requires a lot of introspection, awareness and understanding about one’s own abilities and capabilities, In addition to your aspirations and expectations.
Hope you will give enough time to find an answer to this question in the days to come. I however welcome you to the PGPIB course. You can certainly consider pursuing PGPIB as one of the option after completing your graduation.
Those who are considering taking up a job, I would like to recommend to them (subject to family support) to invest two more years in PG Education and thus make their foundation strong in terms of knowledge, skill and capabilities before taking the plunge in active work life. Today employer has started looking for Technical/Business skills and not only for qualification and hence PG is the right path to pursue for next 2 years.
