My friends are asking me a place where they can get certificates and degrees about Business. What they want are diploma in Business, MBA, etc. I asked them why they went. Then they answered me ‘We will get the good job if we have certificates and degrees’. How do you think? Are you also trying to collect certificates and degrees? It can be useful to a condition, but it’s not useful enough for you to get high pad job.
In foreign country, after finishing college with diploma or degree, young people get the job by suitable paid. Then if continued to Master, they get more salary in the company. If continued to PhD, they become the greatest. But when looking at Myanmar, there is only few education center in Myanmar which can teach the way like in western countries do. We can see today many international-standard education centers and are expensive. They can teach you, but you memorize and challenge the exam. Then you passed it by flying colors. But you know little. As you may also know that Myanmar students are raised in the education systems that teach us to memorize, but not to understand deeper.
Yes. What I want to say here is that only few education centers in Myanmar can support you to become professional in your career. Even though you are attending high paid classes and training, companies will not impress on you, your certificates and degrees. So why are you still trying to get higher degrees, Masters and etc. May be it is because you want pride and the feeling that everyone appreciate you. But in real-life, it is wrong. Then I would like to give you the best way to get the good paid opportunities and impressed by others. While you are collecting degrees, everyone and business sectors will not wait you. They will hire people who can work as soon as possible. In Myanmar, companies are suffering shortage of human resources. It’s better if you can start running on your career at the age of most 24. For me, I worked since I was 18s.
Star working! It is only and the best way. You should start working so that you get more and more experiences than you get people recognized and more companies and business men will interest on you. Remark your work as a learning place. Learn everything for your work, your job and your projects. Life is the best university. Then after you got lots of experience and had collected lots of money, you can still join international universities as well. But when, learn the subject where you passion exist – not your ego and greed wants. There is a another solution that you can attend night classes and weekend class to learn deeper about to your career. It is the best way. But don’t let the classes make you slow in your career development. My suggestion for you is ‘start working!’.
