    Software Job or Lecturer Job, what to choose? How much a Lecturer can earn in future?

    Hi Friends,

    I have done B.Tech and M.Tech in Computer Science with first class. Now I am Working in an MNC that pays me round 4 lakh PA. Now I got an offer form a private engineering college who are ready to pay me the same amount. As I am interested in lecturer job, I want to shift to lecturer profession.

    Can any one suggest me what should I do?

    Because staying in Software industry will fetch more money and opportunities to go abroad, which is not there in lectureship.
    How much a lecturer can earn in future, i.e may be after 10-15 years?

    Or Should I continue in industry for few years then shift. If so, how will it be.

    Please suggest and share your experiences.

    hi guest !!!
    actually all the thing depends upon the interest.
    according to me as you have studied b.tech you should not leave the software job but still if you want to be a lecturer as you are interested you should join it because there will be satisfaction.
    payment of a lecturer in a private college depends upon his performance and feedback by the students.
    if you can satisfy the student you may get a good salary and increment too very soon.
    but if you are not able to do so then obviously you may get a decrement.
    so,various things are there.
    in software jobs also there are some problems like the job is not secure there.
    so,my suggestion is that if you are interested in lecturer you should try for the government organisation like IITs,NITs.
    there you will get a very good salary.also your job will be secure.your reputation would be high.
    thank you !!!

    Hello,

    Well , if you have a special interest in teaching then you can always chose the
    lecturer job. You have the required experience with you to work in both software
    and teaching domain. Lecturer job is considered very prestigious in India, the salary
    package is very good and you will have the option to pursue PhD of your choice in the
    near future. You have to decide which one is best for you. But you can always shift your
    job in different domains, infact cross-functional domain experience is regarded as a
    virtue these days.

    Bye,

    Dear Friend

    Both the lecturer as well as software engineer you will have equal job and career opportunities.

    It totally depends upon your interest in which field you want to shape up your career.

    If you will teach for 10-15 years in a engineering college ,you will get chance to promote yourself.

    For example with five years experience ,you will be able to become Head of Department and if your college is well known then your salary will range from Rs 100000 to Rs 125000 if it is private.

    If you will do Phd then there will be chances that you might become director of engineering college with ten to 15 years teaching experience and the salary of a director is about Rs 300000 to Rs 350000 in private engineering experience.

    The second advantage is that you will get stable job.

    So I have given all the statistics ,now you can decide your career option

    Hope the information helps as well as satisfies you .If you have any further query regarding this then please leave it here.

    All the best

    Hello Aspirant,

    Congratulations for getting B.Tech & M.Tech degree in computer science & being an employee in MNC.Since you are M.Tech,you have multiple choices of careers.But it depends upon your interest which career to choose.If you continue your career,you know what benefit you will get.If you shift to lectureship,you should compete NET & or do Ph.D for better career in this line.If you compete NET & Ph.D,you may have bright career in teaching profession.It is also to be noted that every career has some merits & demerits.You will be more busy in corporate career than in teaching career.At the same time you may earn more money in your present career,but the other benefits such as not to be too busy,more respective,less chance of transfer,more stability are available in teaching career.The salary for Asst.professor is also good.Also you may earn lot of money by taking pvt.classes & writing some good book.It may also give you good name fame

    hello,
    as you said you are interested in lecturer job then without any other thought you may shift to it.as you are in a software position there will be number of opportunities if their is any problem regarding your lecturer job.
    try to be in a field of lecturer in 2 or 3 years and if you are satisfied both by work and pay then continue in that field and if you are not satisfied then after two year you may again opt for you software field.
    thank you............

    I would suggest that you should continue working in the MNC where you are working.
    Work there for atleast 3-4 years and than you can think of venturing into teaching profession
    Also while considering jobs as lecturer in Engineering college you should firsdt give preference to Government colleges where salary is good and also growth is good
    After the Government college your preference should be reputed Private engineering colleges
    Just dont join any new engineering college as lecturer

    Re: Software Job or Lecturer Job, what to choose? How much a Lecturer can earn in future?

    Hello,

    You are confused on what you want.Job in a software company and lecturer in a college are two different things.One is a professional line ,while the other one is absolutely academic.I think it is very essential that you give stress on your liking rather thinking about the money.If you start your work as a lecturer in a college,you have to focus on your teaching methodology rather than earning money.You simply cannot expect that being a lecturer will fetch you good money,foreign trip like that of working in a private company.

    If you be a lecturer you will get increment in due course of time.But if you are more interested in something with more money,more prospect then surely job in software company is the best option for you!

    Re: Software Job or Lecturer Job, what to choose? How much a Lecturer can earn in future?

    Dear Friend,

    At first, i would like to congratulate you on being successful in your career and even getting offer for a lecturer job. It is always pleasant to be in such situation when you options to choose your career.

    I would suggest you to give your interest as top priority while choosing the right profession. So, if you are liking your present assignment and satisfied with it then no point switching your profession. Instead, if you are not enjoying it and you are good at teaching, you may switch your profession. I guess, you got my point.

    There are advantages and disadvantages of both the job. On one hand, in MNC you better future growth and opportunities, as a lecturer you will have slightly relaxed life and less work load. Even as a lecturer you will get sufficient salary but comparatively lesser than as a software engineer in MNCs.

    Also, think in which field you can perform better before deciding the right one.

    All the best.
    Thank you.
