Jason’s Answer

Hi Darshan. Anything is definitely possible, it just depends on how you are willing to structure your life and what your circumstances are. You can definitely choose to pursue a full-time career after graduation, and also pursue postgraduate education part-time. However it will definitely involve a tremendous time commitment and it will take you a little longer to complete your postgrad (compared to full-time). You will likely not have much time left in your week to pursue your hobbies or enjoy your social life.

It all just depends on where you're at in life and what you want to do. If you want to have spare time available in the week and do not have to worry about finances, you could definitely pursue postgraduate education full-time and then work after you complete everything. You might even find better job prospects! In this world right now, especially in these uncertain times, I would personally suggest getting your foot in the door and finding a job. Even if it's part-time. Because work experience is extremely valuable, especially in a very competitive job market. Having a one year advantage over someone with no years is night and day.

Ultimately the decision is up to you, but to answer your question: Yes, but it will be a lot of hard work.

Jason recommends the following next steps:

Review your financial situation
Consult your family members or an adult that you can trust

Ted’s Answer

A lot of people I know went to work after their undergrad college experience, gaining workplace experience in the field. It makes sense to pursue a Master's degree once you have a clear idea which field you'd like to work in, and that's best done by looking around in the workforce and seeing which people are making the kinds of money, doing the kinds of work, and living the types of opportunities that you want for yourself.

I went to work right after college in the world of Hollywood television production. It was very glamorous and fun, but I didn't anticipate how unfulfilling that world is, and how important it was to me to do meaningful work that helps people and nourishes my soul. After that realization I changed course and enrolled in an online graduate program in Education. This enabled me to study while I was working and get a teaching job within two years.

Jemima A.’s Answer

I agree with Jason and other esteemed answers.

Everything is possible. It all boils down to how you can plan your self, the work you are aiming to do, your commitment and the circumstances that may arise..

Honestly, it is quite challenging to work and still offer postgraduate studies. Meanwhile work experience is a plus to expanding your career and pivoting to better jobs.

You could take a part time job and full time postgraduate studies at the same time or a full time job and a part time postgraduate studies. The former will be better if you wish to finish your postgraduate studies early and rise in your academics while the latter will be better if you are self funding your studies.

Both needs commitment and hard work. I believe you can do it Darshan

Best of Luck!!

Hi Darshan,

I did my post graduate work while I was working. It can be very challenging, especially on your time. You will need to communicate to those around you what time you have and how they will fit into that time. You may have to give up hobbies or miss some events. You may want to consider taking a longer amount of time to complete the work. I did my Masters Degree over two years, however there are options to spend longer so that you can have a good life balance. It will be most important to have a support process in place. You need to make sure that family and friends don't add additional stress to what is already going to be a challenging time.
