I'd say to go for a job first, because even with a bachelor's degree you will not know everything you should for whatever position you apply. Jobs are another phase where you keep learning, studies never really end. So once you've gain practice and confirmed to yourself that you like that position or that industry then you might want to specialize on it and invest in a master degree to perform even better. After all, a master degree will help you learn new stuff but also and very importantly: grow your network, because most master degree students are already managers that can help you in many professional aspects of your life, and they tend to be friends with other managers or employees in the industry, they are not so attracted to regular students. Good luck! 😊

I'd go with Option #3. Get a job while you're working on your masters. That'll allow you to start earning good money, gain priceless experience in your field, and not waste a bunch of time while you're furthering your education. An experienced person with a masters is a lot more valuable than an inexperienced person with a masters.

Agree with Sneez. Going for master degree is better as it provide more job opportunities and knowledge and good income.

Personally, I'm planning to work abroad for half a year after the bachelor's degree. Then I'll begin with the master degree.

maybe is best option is try to do both and that is hard work, but if you want to choose i recommend you to go for bachelors degree, for additional education, and job is waiting for you after that for sure

@Sneeze He is on here asking us questions; clearly he doesn't use his entire day toward studying. :) However, that also greatly shows that you indeed have plenty of time within a day to do everything you need to do if you properly use time management. I work full time, go to school full time, and have a wife + 3 kids. If you manage your time properly and don't waste time on unimportant things, you have more than enough time in a day to have your cake and eat it too. The reality is that we waste a LOT of time on stuff like games, TV, our cell phones, YouTube, FaceBook, etc.. etc.. etc.. on a daily basis. If you actually write down everything you do during the day, for how long and when, you'll realize that you waste most of your day on things that don't really matter toward your betterment or success.

Go for Masters so that you will get job easier😉

Go for a Master degree. Once you start working you never get the oppertunity to learn so many hours a day. Combining work and study is hard.

Yup, I mean, there's not much benefit that they can get from someone who has no experience and no contacts, they are more likely going to be interested in socializing with someone who has a good reputation in the industry and could be recruited or that has something to offer, like a partnership, a job in their company, etc. not just academic help.

I think go for a job...so after that you'll go for masters.

In my opinion first you go to job for 1 or 2 years & get some experiences thn go for your masters degree..so that you can then get good understanding skills when you study and definitely..,sure you will shine in future.✌ anyway good luck buddy👍

Some companies pay your tuition and you could get your masters(or bachelors) for free or almost free depending on the company. It’s called Tuition reimbursement. I’d suggest doing that and get work experience plus education

Go for a job and once ur settled with one try for higher studies......

Depends on what you want to do. There's nothing wrong with a bachelor degree and there are lots of interesting jobs for software engineers. As a master you'll get slightly different jobs, so I'd really search in my area to find what appeals me most. If it's the bachelor jobs: great, stick with that. If it's the master jobs: great, continue with your master study. Remember you're doing this for your own future. What do you like doing? The number of jobs as computer scientist is usually not the problem...

Go for Mastr degree

get a job in your field and try to finish your PG through correspondence. at the end your knowledge will be valued not your degree.

Job is another form of learning. first, get a low pay job. do not pay attention to the remuneration pay attention to self development, discover your weak points then for masters to fix those weak point and look for higher pay job

You can freelance meanwhile studing in your masters degree. However it's important to gain practice and keep coding. Wish you good luck!
