Master's degree helps some people take a job. But, that does not mean the golden ticket graduate degree so when looking for a job.
In the UK for example, not all graduate degree holders have the good fortune. Even so, the Directorate General of Higher Education (Higher Education) noted local, high unemployment do not deter scholars studying back in hopes of reaching their jobs easier.
Data Higher Education Careers Service Unit (Hecsu) in the UK showed that approximately 353 500 people enroll in graduate programs in the academic year 2009/2010. Master's students recorded a 7.4 percent increase and the number of doctoral students increased one percent.
Currently, the main focus of the scholars who have studied advanced is the ease of getting a job. Employers simply prefer a master's degree holders, but only if the master is able to demonstrate their ability.
Chief Executive of The Association of Graduate Recruiters in the UK, Carl Gilleard stated, "If taken with a postgraduate qualification obvious reasons, and the graduates are able to explain their advantages to prospective works, then a master's degree may be more value in one's curriculum vitae." Similarly, as quoted from the website of The Guardian, Monday (7/3/2011).
Career consultant at City University London Laura Hooke explained, if we seriously want to invest our time and money in graduate studies, make sure we take the decision based on a variety of supporting information. If you are motivated by love for their studies and interest in the field of study that you will take, that's good. But, there is no guarantee if you take a step further study to get a job.
One should choose courses in their graduate school by adhering to the goal of his career, whether it be an academic or work in a particular industry sector. You should choose the most specific program goals. Select courses are also experienced.
Senior lecturer at Bangor University, James Intriligator, suggest, you should be committed to working hard on graduate study whatever you choose. According Intriligator, at least 70 percent of one's graduate study directly related to how big business. Therefore, one must be ready to make everything on his own efforts, for example by creating a study group, reading a variety of literature, and committed to the studies that have been chosen.
If you are not prepared with the responsibility for learning on your shoulders, and are not interested in your chosen topic, then do not waste your time and money.
