    CONGRATES,for getting a job.

    As you are pursuing B.tech 4th year.it is a better opportunity to you to join in a job because now a day we are not getting good opportunities.
    If you are interested in applying for the gate examination.You should think about your ability and strength to write the examination.
    If you are interested you can prepare for the gate examination while doing the job.think about your capability and confidence before attending to job.

    all the best,
    thank you

    See if did wanted to pursue higher studies you should have prepared for GATE while your bachelors degree, now if you will start preparing for GATE and thus will only study for gate exam for one whole year can cause you many problems, like first of all you will have a one year gap and than after giving GATE if you will want to change your mind and go for job than the one year gap will effect your candidature for job. You cannot guarantee that you will be successful in GATE even after preparing for an year and thus will get admission in the reputed engineering colleges. 3 lakh is not that less for starting as a fresher and if you will work hard for say 2 years than you can get much better opportunities based on your experience of 2 years.

    But if you think that you don't want to make your career in software field and want to go for other engineering areas than it would be better that you go for GATE. But you will need to work really hard with a clear aim to get admission in a particular college of your choice.

    Hi,

    You have got job that is really great, congratulations.

    Getting job is difficult in todays competitive world.
    So must start preparing for GATE exam now itself even though you have got placed in the company.

    In the final year you can prepare for GATE entrance an appear for it in the coming exam after graduation.
    So, you will not have to take one year drop.
    After you get the GATE results or when you can make out your result, then you can decide about this job.

    Through, GATE entrance you will get job in core companies with high payment.
    Your score in the exam must be really good.

    And if your GATE score would not be too good to get better job then you may join the job you got now.

    So, start preparing for GATE exam from right this moment

    Good luck

    I would suggest that you should take up the job.
    3 lakhs per annum is not at all a bad salary to start with
    Please note that in todays world there are many candidates who are not able to find any job even after completing their Btech
    Work for 3-4 years and than only think of doing any further study
    Also along wth jobs you can apply for Government jobs in banks and other departments

    Dear Friend,

    Being a B.Tech fresher 3 Lakhs p.a package is not low salaried i think and you should definitely work in that company not only because of package but due the experience you are getting from that company. In almost every Masters course and in each job experience is required at must.

    Preparation for GATE exam side by side is not an bad idea and after 1-2 year experience you are more mature and experienced and economically sound from the general crowd which is more beneficial for you to get selected in good institutes further for M.Tech.

    While working you should enroll for weekend classes conducted by Institutes for GATE exam. You should manage the work routine and your study in a efficient way by doing proper time management. You should enroll for weekend batch for preparation of GATE exam conducted by IEI( Institute of Engineers India).

    See, you have to first consider your financial condition. If you donot have much financial crisis then you can leave the idea of joining the job at present and simply devote your entire time and energy for preparing for the GATE exam. But if you have financial constraints, then join the job immediately. Working during day time till evening,after coming back from office, devote the entire time in your preparation.Doing job and preparing at the same time is not an easy task.If requires a lot of physical as well as mental strength. If you are confident enough that you can handle these two, then go for it.

    hi
    if your aim is to get high salary, a better growth and a respectful career, then you should not be satisfied with a low salary job and you should go and prepare for the GATE exam, and then next year you should try on for some high package jobs. But on the other hand, if you think that you wont be able to match up the hard work and all the preparation and tough study that is going to come under the process then you should carry on with the job and make your growth by working hard.
    Gud luck

    Re: Will it better to go for a low salaried job or prepare for the GATE exam?

    First of all,I would like to congratulate you for getting placed from your college and the opportunity to enter your professional life.Jobs are quite difficult to get nowadays for the engineers since the market condition is not good.Moreover if one is not from a good institute like the IITs or the NITs,it is quite difficult to get a high salaried jobs in modern market.So it is good to see you with a job offer.

    This is one of the common dilemma among the engineering students whether to go for the job or prepare for the GATE exam.And the main thing is that this realization usually comes in the final year of engineering when they sense the real world of professionalism and the market condition.But if they would have realized this before and had started preparing for the GATE exam from before hand during their course of engineering,then the entire problem would have been solved.This is because they would not require any extra time for the preparation of the GATE exam after completion of their degree course.

    Coming to your query,you should first judge your own perspective.First think what is your ambition or your goal.You want to pursue higher studies or your need a job right now.This is an important decision that you have to take since this will solve the problem to a great extent.If you can think what you want,you can get the solution to your problem.If you cannot,then we are here to help you.

    According to my opinion,you should go for the job.You can prepare for the Gate while doing the job.There is no age limit for the Masters Degree courses,so you can take your time for the preparation.Moreover,you will also get the professional experience of working which will be of great benefit for you in the future while seeking better opportunities.It is often seen that the experienced person are preferred over the qualified and inexperienced ones.Sometimes the value of experience overpowers the value of certificate of the courses.Moreover,if you give a gap for the preparation of the GATE exam,it will be reflected in your resume and in turn you will face trouble in getting good jobs in the future.So,it is recommendable to do job and prepare for the GATE exam simultaneously.

    Re: Will it better to go for a low salaried job or prepare for the GATE exam?

    Decide if does desired to pursue bigger studies you have to have ready for GATE even though your own bachelor's degree, right now if you will get started preparing for GATE and for that reason is only going to analysis for gates exam for starters total twelve months could potentially cause you many troubles, just like for starters you'll have a twelve months space along with as compared to after supplying GATE in the event you really need to change your mind along with go for work as opposed to twelve months space can effect your own candidature for job. You can't assure you will be profitable around GATE despite preparing for a strong twelve months and for that reason is certain to get admission in the well-known technological innovation colleges. 3 lakh isn't that a lesser amount of for commencing being a fresh along with if you will bust your tail for claim 2 ages as compared to you can aquire greater possibilities based on your own expertise in 2 years.

    Although if you feel that you don't want to make your occupation around software package field and want to go for different technological innovation places as compared to it would be improved that going for GATE. Although you simply must function really tough together with a definite purpose to obtain admission around a certain school within your choice.
    As being a B.Tech fresh 3 Lakhs p.a offer isn't minimal salaried i'm sure and you should surely function in the business not merely as a result of offer yet because of the experience you receive by that company. Within nearly all Masters study course as well as in every work experience becomes necessary on must.

    Getting ready for GATE exam next to each other is not an poor idea along with after 1-2 twelve months experience you might be elderly along with encountered along with monetarily noise by the overall crowd which is much more valuable to get decided on around excellent organizations even more for M.Tech.

    Whilst functioning it is best to register for saturday instructional classes done by means of Institutions for GATE exam. You should manage the effort plan and also your analysis within a effective approach by means of carrying out suitable moment management. You should register for Saturday set for planning connected with GATE exam done by means of IEI( Institution connected with Designers India).
    Coming over to your own issue,it is best to 1st assess your perspective.First consider what is your own aspirations or perhaps your goal.You desire to pursue bigger studies or perhaps your will need employment suitable now.This is a crucial conclusion you have to carry simply because this can clear up the challenge so that you can an incredible extent.If you can consider what you want,you can aquire what is anxiety your own problem.If you are unable to,then we tend to be below to assist you.

    As outlined by my personal opinion,you actually comes to the job.You can certainly put together to the Gate even though carrying out a job.There isn't a age reduce to the Masters Education training,so that you can take your time to the preparation.Moreover,you'll obtain the skilled expertise in functioning that will be connected with significant advantage for you in the future even though trying to find improved opportunities.It is normally noticed the fact that encountered man or woman tend to be preferred in the skilled along with newbie ones.Sometimes the value of experience overpowers the value of certificates in the courses.Moreover,in the event allowing your space to the planning in the GATE exam,will probably be mirrored inside your job application also you can confront difficulty when you get excellent job opportunities in the future.So,it's recommendable to do work and get ready for a GATE exam simultaneously.

    hello guest,
    obviously you should prepare for the GATE exam if you are interested in core companies and there is no any financial problem.
    actually nowadays no any core company invites for the interview without a valid rank in GATE.
    so,if you are confident that you can clear the exam next year with preparation then surely you should start the preparation.
    after qualifying GATE exam there is another benefit that is you may opt for higher studies in IITs,NITs and after pursuing that you may get a job with higher package.
    so,my suggestion is to start the preparation.
    thank you & all the best !!!
