5 Things You Can Do After B Tech

When you enter the last year of your college, the only thing that is talked of is placements. Your teachers, parents, friends, relatives – everyone has a single question. How are you placements going on? Did you get a job?

While these people keep shooting up with questions, none of them realize that companies visit college campuses at a particular time and as far as my college is concerned, that time hasn’t come yet. But the thing which makes me feel bewildered is that why people think that job is the only option?

For me job is the only option I want to go for but that’s a CHOICE. Getting a job after graduation is never the only option people have, especially the engineers. After your graduation you have plenty of options and each of them is a good one.

The disappointing part is that the people who keep pushing us for bagging a good job through campus placements become too blind to our emotional state. Come on, getting a job isn’t that easy as people say. What if we don’t feel ready? What if after practicing lots of aptitude and C/C++, we just don’t hear our calling? What if we don’t WANT a job?

As I said earlier, you have lot of options. You can do plenty of other things after completing your B Tech. Here are some cool options mentioned by a Saurabh Pareek. Take a look!

  1. Start your own venture: While Saurabh has placed this quite below in his list, I consider this the best option. Become an entrepreneur. Start something new or give a fresh perspective to an old business idea. Entrepreneurship is the new cool thing everyone is doing and you should do it too. Don’t consider this as an option to become popular and rich in less time. Of course, that’s possible. But consider this as a learning opportunity. Learn how things work in the corporate world and learn how it feels like to fail and rise again. This is the best time to do that. START WORKING ON IT!
  2. Travel: If you have always expected something different from your life but have found yourself clueless about that ‘different’ thing, this is what you need. You need to travel and explore. It’s better if you do it alone for that would provide you with a fresh perspective. I would suggest you to try for an internship through AIESEC (No sponsoring) but having been an exchange coordinator at the organization, I know how it happens and how awesome it is. You can also consider going abroad for studies (if you need an excuse to get permission from the conservative parents. For more tips, send me an email. 😉 )

  3. Go for post graduation: This is the obvious option and yep, it is necessary to include it. If you don’t want your college days to end, if you want to enjoy for some more time – go for a post graduation course. MBA or M.Tech – choose whatever you want. And yes, these are never the ‘only’ options. A senior of mine is doing M.Sc. in fashion designing after B.Tech. in Computer Science. People call him crazy but I call him the ‘Master of his own life’. He rules and yep, he is one of the toppers and best designers at his new study place.
  4. Go for a short term course: If going back to college isn’t your option but studying is still on for you, try the short term courses. I recently inquired about the distance education courses available at Sikkim Manipal University. They are good and cheap and you can have a valid reason to stay at home, be lazy and think what you want to do with your life.
  5. Follow your passion: The last but not the least, you need to sit down and think what you really want to do in your life. Most of us joined an engineering college for our parents asked us to do that or because ‘everyone’ was doing the same. I never wanted to do B Tech. and I know neither did you. So, think about what you really wanted to do and do it now. It’s never too late.

While Saurabh’s list has 9 options, I have these 5 but don’t think that they are ‘just five’. There are many options hidden inside each option. So, in reality, you have uncountable options. All you need to do is to make a choice. DO IT!
