Confusion regarding selecting a career

Career CounselingCategory: Career after GraduationConfusion regarding selecting a career
Jugal Chandan asked 6 years ago

After my 10th I started with DJing (Disc Jockey) alongside college. Post 12th I opted of B.Com with DJing going on side by side.
So after completing my graduation I decided to get a career in Event Management and hence did a course from a college in Mumbai (being a hub for entertainment and near to Pune as well). Since then I have been working on Events as a freelancer. I had stopped doing shows as a DJ at that time and now I am back to pune. But now I find Event Management very hectic as well as not very high paying career unless we have our own business. 
So I am looking forward to change my career path and study something further… Even my parents want me to do the same.
But now I am confused on what shall I do?
I am fine with studying in India as well as abroad. 
Help would be highly appreciated!

Hi Jugal,
First option is to start your own business in Event Management. However, given the nature of business, it will always be hectic. With business you will be able to make a lot of money in 2-3 years of dedication. You can prepare for CAT and GMAT and based on your score and the kind of colleges you are getting you can decide whether you should do MBA from India or abroad. 
Apart from MBA, if you can also go for Environmental Studies, Hospitality, Marketing and Advertising. Based on your interest, you can choose a field and then prepare for entrance exams to get into good colleges. Remember that doing post graduation from a regular college will not help much in your career so it is better to study hard and prepare for reputed colleges.
