I am a 21 year old guy who will be graduating with a bachelor's degree in computer science (BE CSE) and have been applying to companies for internship and job. I am also attempting the entrance examination to pursue an MBA (either in my home country or abroad). I am confused as to how I am supposed to respond when the interviewer asks me about my higher education plans.
If i tell them straight that I plan to pursue MBA, then why would they even offer me the job or internship?
I can guess that you, the reader is thinking "if you want to apply for MBA, don't apply for a job or internship" however I am not absolutely sure of whether I can crack the exam and get the desired college or not. So i need a safety net.
Any suggestions on how should I deal with this question in the interview?
"Having already completed my BE CSE, I would like to pursue an MBA in future if the opportunity presents itself."
Flaunt your success while letting them know you're interested to learn more. Easy enough.
Wouldn't this indicate that I am not actively looking out to working? Why would a recruiter recruit me if they know that i will ditch them the moment I get a chance at pursuing an education?
