    Hello,

    You should not leave your present job, you sould rather gather some valuable work
    experience which will be beneficial for you in the long run. You have to work and prepare
    for your GATE exam at the same time. It will be hard you for you to focus on your study but
    many people are following the same proceedure to crack the GATE exam without loosing
    valuable work experience. This should be your strategy.

    Bye,

    Dear Aspirant,

    Congratulations for getting B.Tech degree with high CGPA.It depends upon your interest to go for M.Tech or to continue in your job.If you are interested for corporate job,you should go for MBA from any of the B school of management for you should prepare & appear for CAT,MAT ctc.Depending upon the rank in these competitive exam,you can get admission in the one of the best management Institutes such as IIMS.If you are interested for teaching job,you can go for M.Tech for which you should again prepare for GATE,because if you get good rank,say below 600,then only you may get any IIT for M.Tech admission.If your rank is still high,you can get admission in any NIT & then to deemed university.You may get chance for better placement on the basis of your M.Tech degree.But if your present software company is good enough,you can get seniority in the coming two years,by which you will get hike in salary & promotional aspects.Also on the basis of your experience you may get better job after two years of service.

    So think & decide what to do.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Since you have got a poor rank in GATE,it means your preparation has not been satisfactory to get a good ranking!The preparation may have suffered due to lack of energy and time that you failed to devote to your preparation.Now my suggestion to you will be,if you have financial constraints then,quiting the job wont be a good option.otherwise leaving the present job will be a better option for you.Then you will be able to devote full time and energy in preparing for the GATE examination.Once you get through this,then you will get better job offers.So it is essential that you put stress on nothing but cracking the GATE exam!

    As per your CGPA is concerned you have a very good score, As far as choosing between job and Mtech it depends on how much you can wait or your need for the job. See if you can think that you can prepare better and can get a higher score in the GATE exam so that you can get admission in good institutes than only you must go for it. As merely doing an Mtech from any college won't help you in getting better job. If you want to make your career in the concerned field you are working in than you must continue with your job as after 2 years you will have an experience with you in this field which is nothing less that having a masters degree. See software field requires more of a practical experience.

    If you are good in that you can get much better job than a person holding a masters degree in same field from a average college.But if you want to make your career in other engineering field than you must try to get a higher score so that you can get admission in a reputed college. Because having an Mtech from a reputed college can only help in making your career better in all prospects.

    i will suggest to that go for M.Tech,but through correspondence.SO along with you job you can also complete you M.Tech.
    There are lot of universities which are providing the M.Tech through the distance education by providing good education environment to students

    if you need any information related to the admission process and fee structure in M.Tech through distance education, then check out the websites of these universities:-
    1)IGNO.
    2)LOVELY PROFESSIONAL UNIVERSITY.
    3)ANNAMALAI UNIVERSITY.
    4)DBROU......etc..

    As you said that you are BTECH engineer and also doing job in a software company then you should not quit the job as after gaining the experience of 2 years you will get the increment in the salary and also you will be promoted if you will not be promoted then you can give the walkin interview to other companies for the growth and for higher position.
    If you get promoted then it will be better than MTECH.
    Why i am saying to continue the job because if you get the admission in MTECH then it will take 2 years to complete and at that period of time you cannot do any job, then after the completion of that you will be on the same way where you have been 2 years back , you will go for the job and without experience you need to start it from the begining and the same salary you will get which you were getting 2 year back.
    So its better to spend 2 years in job rather than doing MTECH.
    So its my experience rest of all is on you, what your family wants and most important what you want, because there will be no point to blame others for the desicion.

    Never leave a job which you have got a good job in software company then don't leave it because if you have job then it really boosts your confidence at an great level.. I am telling you for a good sake.. Yes its important these days to do post graduation but what matter is the institution that you need to do your m.tech iits important that you that you need to do from iit's nit's everyone aspires for good institutes for doing m.tech.. So you should do job and work this will be good combination keep yourself busy then only you will do better preparation.. So its very important that you should study in weekends and get work experience besides you study well enough to get a good score in gate if you get good score then its great you can quit the job and join in good colleges.. But question arises when you don't get score that is not better to match good institutes.. Then you will not get depressed because you will have job in your hands... All the best

    Hi,

    Your CGPA is good but as you said you have scored less in GATE exam ,it is not good.

    You can go for distance education in m.tech.

    You should not leave your job unless you get admission in the college and if you plan to go for distance learning then you will have the job and study together.

    You can prepare for m.tech now but do not leave the job.

    You are having a job an if you do PG you will get more better job.

    good luck

    Dear Friend,

    It is advised to you that you should try to manage your routine while working on both areas i.e M.Tech and Job at the same time. It is advised that you should not leave your job because it gives more experience and in case you did'nt score well in M.Tech exams then you have no option. As well as side by side you are gaining more experience in job.

    You can enroll for M.Tech preparation through Coaching Institutes which also provides weekend batch for working professional. If you are working in MNC then there must be Saturday and Sunday off while if not then you must get Sunday off for sure. Weekend batches offers classes of 4-5 Hours which is acceptable for you in this two day off.
    In other working days you will revise the stuff after office hours.

    In almost every major city or B class cities IEI(Institutes of Engineers India) has its centers and provide weekend batch for working professionals.

    Visit your concerned city Branch office to get to know more details.

    So I advice you to take both the Job as well as side by side GATE exam preparation.

    You have brought a very good idea about your career because if you have got the job on the basis of your bachelor's degree then there is no problem because you are from professional stream and will be called for various jobs in future but if you are thinking to increase your educational qualification for more job opportunities in future then you must go for it without any problem because job is at it's place and study depends on the limit of age and your interest and once you lost your interest then you will not be able to study continuously so this is the time that you go for further studies and leave this current job because there are so many jobs in the world and when you will increased your educational qualification then you will definitely get very good and high paying job in future but just keep your consistency same in master's degree too and try to score very good percentage marks in that so you will be placed for some higher grade jobs

    All the best
