Hi Ram,

Firstly i appreciate the Efforts you have put in during your graduation to come up in Life, Being in Microsoft you already have Job Security

First thing Sort your Preferences and Needs, See where you want yourself to stand 10 years down the line. Whether the Options Listed are the only ones available for you, you can also look out for other opportunities such as MS in US if you want to go ahead in Technical Line,

if i were in your place :

- Continue Job and Prepare for CAT/ GMAT
- Have Sufficient Savings to Fund the MBA
- See the ROI Factor
- Sort your Options and Set your Preferences

Most importantly see where you want to see yourself stand 10 Years down the line..

Hello Guys,

I have this dilemma whether to prepare for CAT exam or for IAS...

Let me introduce myself, I am B.Tech graduate from one of the top college in state(Karnataka) with a descent score(85% aggregate) . Passed out in 2011.
I got campus offer from Microsoft.

Since i had struggled a lot for money to do my graduation (No support from family as my dad expired and mom is daily wager in my village, i studied with the help of scholarships and bank loan), So this offer {7 Lakhs package + Brand of company} obviously attracted me to corporate world.I felt myself great and family was on the top of world.

Its 1.5 years in Corporate world, i got a chance to visit USA once for 15 days duration as well. But now i am thinking that, if i continue my career here I will be a normal Software engineer. Own a house in Bangalore by age 30, marriage, have kids , take care of them..etc

But Do not want to lead such type of life..I want to something great {Not able to decide waht is great!! } as i believe that "ANYONE CAN DO ANYTHING IN LIFE, WE JUST NEED DEDICATION, HARD WORK, A GOAL".

I am not able to decide which path to take...Whether to go for MBA in IIM's or study for IAS.....i know both are not easy as i have to take lot of risk and put lot of efforts...

Lot of dilemma...Everyday, every moment....
As for my knowledge:

CAT---IIM---MBA :

1. Good package-lot of money
2. Full stress
3. abroad chances
4. Big challenges or opportunity for creativity
5. Can open own company and offer jobs to others-Entrepreneur


IAS---Civil services :

1. Descent pay
2. authority/ Power
3. Social service
4. No space for creativity
5. Political Gimmics

As i told i have not started prepare for neither of them,,,but i wanna choose one and then put my heart, mind into that......Take risk as i a moving out of Comfort Zone(Need to struggle for money to study further )

I know that, ultimately i have to decide what i wanna be in life...But I am not able to decide..

Any suggestions , Recommendations or Advice's are highly appreciated..........

Thanks in advance,
Ram
