Hello All,

I want some career advice.

I have about four years of experience working with IT services company on Java/J2EE.
I have spent one year in EU.

Got little bored and did not know where my life was heading so thought of doing Masters from EU or USA and working abroad for longer time. However thing have turned ugly in last 18 months or so.

Please advice whether to go for MS or look for better job in India. What will be beneficial in longer term?

If you go for an MS degree and once you complete it, you are considered as starting your career afresh. Atleast the Indian IT companies think that way. Why not go for an MBA which goes well with the work experience that you have got.
