    Will it be OK to leave a professional job after working there only for 6 months?

    I got a opportunity to do higher studies in one of the best college so I am planning to quit from the company which I have joined just 6 months back. So will it be OK to do that? or will it create any problem in future if I mention 6 months experience in the resume? Can you please give me details?

    No, it will not cause any problems.
    Since you are going for the higher studies and you ahve to join the college right now than you can leave the job and join the college.

    You are doing higher studies so that you can get a better job opportunities after completing the course.
    So go ahead and Join the course and do well there , so that you can find better opportunities later

    Hi friend,

    If you really want to pursue your higher studies then you can leave the job.

    Because it might create a better opportunity than the one you are now holding.

    But if you want to go for higher studies just like that, then it would be better for you to continue it as the job is very difficult to get now a days.

    You can definitely mention that six months of experience as an asset in your resume, but be sure that you explain the employer the situation why you left the job.

    Be clear and be sincere so that it would definitely make an added advantage to your resume.


    Hope i have helped you in getting relevant information.

    All the best

    THanking you...

    Hi.. i think you should go for your higher studies as you dont get such opportunities rarely and when you get these you should certainly grab these and not let them pass..This will be good for your future as well as it will help you to get a better job in the future and also your salary will be quite high as compared to now..So you should certainly not miss this opportunity..

    And as for your resume you should not worry about that..If you dot want to mention you can even omit this job experience but i think "Something is better than nothing " so you should certainly mention it..To be on the safe side you can mention your reason for leaving this job and write it below that you did higher studies..

    Mentioning the higher studies in your resume will certainly be impressive and thus will only help you in getting a good job.

    so go for your higher studies and dont take any other decision ..May you have a very bright future..

    Good luck..Happy diwali...Thanks

    There is no problem in pursuing higher studies by leaving your job.

    Just understand that you are still a fresher after you complete your studies. It is just because you had worked before your higher studies and there is a considerable gap in between

    hello dear As far as I am concern that you should complete your education before to go in any jobs.A consistency is must in education because any irregularty can bring a huge problem in getting a top level job.But presently you are in a job if this job is upto corporate level then you should carry on your working and further education should be complete through distance mode because in india there are many top level universities who are providing a comprehensive higher education universities areSIKKIM MANIPALIGNOUANNAMALAIPTU etc.but final decision is depending upon you that which way you select for education.all the best

    Hello,

    Yes, you can always leave your leave for higher studies. Higher study will enhance your career to
    a new level. You will be able to face new challenges in life with confident and courage. The work
    experience of around sic months will play a very little part in your professional career. You should
    not let this golden opportunity pass by my friend.

    Bye,

    you can join your college for further studies as it wont cause any of the problem in your future.
    you have a valid reason to quit the job, and no one puts up any hindrance while making a work experience certificate for 6 months when you are leaving for the further studies.
    the question that might be asked to you in the future that why did you work for just six months, then you should tell them as you have got the admission in the good college for higher studies, that was the reason for you to quit the job.
    gud luck

    Hi Dear,

    You need not worry as you have a genuine reason for leaving your job. Normally you should try being associated with any firm at least for a period of 2 years, however, you are leaving this firm for a valid cause. So ,go ahead and put in your papers for a better opportunity. Please take your experience certificate even for a period of six months as experience counts a lot. When asked in future the reason for such a short tenured job. please mention the true reason of going for higher studies and it will surely be considered.

    Thanks,
    Ritz

    If you are leaving the job because of study then you should not worry for the situation because after leaving the job you will study for more than two years and companies ussually asks for the current working , so after passing out you will be fresher for them, you can give the experience of 6 months of a year back. so they will see that before study you were working into some of the organisation.
    Basically at the time of interview interviewer will ask you for the reason for leaving the job after 6 months then you need to explain the proper reason for that.
    If you give agood reason for that then they will understand the situation. In these situation better to speak the truth because if you say that because of getting the opportunity to study from a best college i left the job , then they will see your college name and also the year when you joined for studies.
    If they find that after leaving the job immideately you joined studies then they will know that you are saying the truth.
    But some of the interviewer also asks that if you get any other opportunity then you will again leave our company, in these situation you need to handle it confidently because they will check how confident you are while giving the answers.
    Also you need to give the good answer for that.
