As you graduate from an undergraduate program, you have already made significant strides for movement towards your professional career and interests. As you continue throughout life, there are still many other choices to make, including whether or not you should attend graduate or professional school. Only you can decide what additional investments you wish to make and what you wish to get out of your education. Some answers come naturally depending on the career goals you wish to pursue. In other words, some career fields or job opportunities “require” or is a prerequisite for you to pursue advanced studies and obtain a graduate degree. Other careers, however, do not always “require” an advanced degree. You are the only one who can answer what you wish to do and how you want to invest your time and money, especially if you have an interest in career advancement or personal satisfaction.
As you begin your decision-making it will become necessary for you to analyze your motives towards consideration of advanced studies. In addition, it will become important for you to do a thorough self-assessment of your interests, strengths, weaknesses, and goals, as well as spending time researching graduate programs that interest you and that will help you move towards your goals.
In my field, though experience really counts, having a MBA degree will really make your resume look good. Had I not marry at an early age, I would have pursued either a law degree or a MBA. Math is really my cup of coffee but I enjoy analyzing business statistics. But I have thought of so many things that prevented me from pursuing the course. But my sister-in-law decided to follow her dreams.
Before my sister-in-law graduated her BS Biology course, she was dead set on taking medicine. But dues to financial reason, she has to resort to taking a master's degree instead in the University of San Francisco. She's a smart girl. She knows that having a graduate studies degree will help her land a better job. She has browsed quite a lot of websites pertaining to graduate career advice & information
. And I really think that these websites will help her career.
