Have you ever asked yourself: “Can I work after earning my bachelor’s degree or after attending graduate school in the U.S.? If so, what are the job opportunities in the U.S.?
Well, it was not a tough decision in my case because I was very much determined to study in the U.S. and never did thought about a finding job after earning my bachelor’s degree.
Many students have asked me these questions. How much will one get paid after earning a master’s degree? Can one easily find a job after graduation?
Job search is another big topic to talk about and soon I’m going to write articles for current students on internship and job search.
But from my job search experience and from what I saw how my friends got their jobs, I have a good idea on how to get a job in the U.S. and how long it would typically take for a student to find a job after graduation.
The answer to that depends on what approach a student takes to find the job.
There are so many ways to look for a job. The first thing that would come to person mind is to do several Google searches and then move on to other job posting sites.
However, they all end up getting the job.
So, job search itself is already a job, but the fact is that you can find a good job, even high paying ones, even with no work experience.
There is no shadow of doubt that students will have to go back to their native country without finding a job during the OPT period (1 year after graduation).
Some students get low paying jobs, some find high paying jobs, and it really depends on the location, job nature, company performance, etc.
To answer the question posed to start this article, I strongly recommend students to study in the U.S.
The exposure you get, the research projects you get to work in, the extent of technology and skills set you’ll learn, everything is much more when compared to studying a master’s degree in India (unless it’s IIT, etc.).
Students will get hands-on experience in implementing research projects.
I have told my friends many times before that the amount of knowledge I gained by working in one project in 1 course in 1 semester is much more than what I have learned in my bachelor’s degree in 1 semester.
That’s the nature and quality of the education in U.S. colleges and universities.
