    MBA degree during recession--- is it worth???

    Lets talk about MBA during recession.........

    The one course that has been constantly under scrutiny during the current global economy meltdown is an MBA (Masters of Business Administration) Programme.



    To do an MBA or not to do?
    Is it wise to invest time and money in an expensive course of MBA where the admission into good management college is also difficult?
    This debate becomes important., as the situation seems scary to many in the job market.




     


    Answers given by experts:

    The idea that there are NO JOBS is wrong. There will be lot of jobs. Even during economic slump, corporates need people. But the demand for human resources is going to come down drastically .
    So companies are going to be choosy.That means there will be less number of jobs and more candidates.

    So What should MBA students do now ?
    You have to be prepared to fight hard to convince the recruiters that you are worth it.
    Please accept the fact that No recruiter will take you because you have an MBA degree . They will take you for your skills . If you are able to prove your worth, you will win the job.

    So do the following activities :
    *Be aware
    *Read business dailies and magazines and prepare notes on the major issue that are haunting global economies .
    *Brush up your communication skills.



    What are those critical soft skills that recruiters look for :
    Confidence in yourself.
    But make sure that you understand the difference between confidence and arrogance.
    Ability to do basic work : Recruiters love people who can DO Stuff. So if you can convince them that you love getting dirty on the field to get things done, you can get that dream job.
    Clarity of thought : Are you clear about what you are and where you want to be ?

    And the most important of all is

    Proof /Evidence
    Give recruiters proof that you are hardworking .
    Give them proofs that you are a leader .
    Give them proofs that you can deliver what is expected out of you.

    Evidence can be in the form of awards , accolades, stories , personal reference, project reports , activities etc.
    If you do not have proofs or evidence to support your claims then you will have tough time convincing the recruiters.

    Its not late , so start building your case with stories and evidences.!!!


    Websites devoted to helping MBA graduates find a career :
    Websites such as monster or careerbuilder are excellent sources of information concerning job opportunities for individuals with an MBA.




    ALL THE BEST!!! ROCK IT!!!
