Doing bachelors is totally understood.
Even doing masters unless you want to super specialize, have a passion for research or wanna become a college professor, is understandable.
What is the trend to keep pushing everyone to go for masters or PhD after they finish their respective degrees?
(Unless they're aspiring doctors, lawyers, engineers or similar jobs).
Fields like media, marketing, arts, business, etc. DO NOT require a masters. Maximum, it might need a bachelors.
Even if you end up doing masters, it's most likely that you will be paid less because you will be 'overqualified'. It happened with my friends.
Underemployment is also a real issue.
Instead of wasting few more years on a research paper and being a hardcore nerd, you would have learned real life skills and gained experiences.
Experience is still valued more than masters.
I've seen people progress quickly without needing masters.
What's your take?
