Quirky _ as a graduate, i can only advise you to get any kind of experience you can possibly get, even as voluntary in your OWN field (. The problem with me at the moment is that although i have experience in most fields at simple position but i have none in my own field of study even as voluntary position , I am smart that way eh? LOL . 

Yep, of course  - Once I narrow it down to that one field I want to be a part of. Goes to show how indecisive I am.
You've tried&tested enough fields already, now you have all the time to focus on that one field.. doesn't sound too bad. LOL
 
The fearless *Dabaangs* like us, aren't afraid of spending their entire life in debt and exploring and learning from each experience Wink. I am very rich in experience, my bank balance says the opposite though lol . Sometimes, I look at my financial situation and make myself feel better by listening to real, I mean real depressing music LOL other days, like today I look at my life and say, it is not perfect but I will never want to swap my life, my experiences with anyone else. I may not have money, but I have amazing friends and supportive family and their love is uncapped!
 
Good news to all, Especially for King anu who was the first to respond to my thread, I have something! I am volunteering right now and getting to learn a lot! Again, money vs experience for me, always rich in latter only LOL  LOL

Your post is so true... it is hard to get a leg in the door in a lot of fields. However, it would definitely depend on the field. I can only talk about 2 - accounting/finance since my sister went down that path and medicine (what I am in). Also, I only know about the US Tongue
Anyways, getting to the point... it's all about the resume these days! As a lot of people have said, unpaid internships are your friend!!! My sister went to a good undergrad, had great scores and everything, but the thing that landed her that first job right after graduation was interning at an accounting office locally! It was a bit annoying to work long hours as that person who got all the coffee runs and lowest of jobs! But the recs that came out of it and having that on her resume (even though she actually didn't do much of anything there), got her the job! It's all about the resume padding nowadays in most fields... So, yea the not getting paid part sucks, but it's the only way to be competitive in the job market!
As far as medicine goes... you'll be dying for a break and they'll laugh in your face and send you to the next step! So, I think this field has the highest job security LOL but yea, the student debt is horrible... Ouch

Jokes apart, resumes are definitely important as that would be a candidate's   first introduction for the prospective employers.  As for the internships they need not be unpaid. At least in the medicine field the interns manage to get a respectable amount;  all the same it would be worth to do internship from a  well reputed place irrespective of the stipend as the experience gained (depending on the motivation and interest level of the candidate)   adds to ones confidence in addition to the resume. Theoretical knowledge gained at the university level is quite inadequate in a real setting as many have discovered.  One learns a lot of things on the job so getting that break would be crucial and one should make the best of it. The medicine field has the added advantage of various options  like research, clinical, teaching, or even setting up your own practice.

Another field where internship plays a crucial role is the legal field. Without good contacts it is often difficult to get into a good firm even for free , that is , without any stipend!   People there do not care much for novices who may be  rather considered as quite bothersome. But the experience gained or not gained during the semester breaks  can make or break you once you are through with the actual course and into the job market. Priority at that time ought to be on learning rather than earning ...this is in context to the Indian scenario where its the parents who usually take care of  the children's educational expenses. The situation may be definitely be more difficult where the student has to fund his own education.

The engineering field has it quite tough as far as India is considered.  Before choosing one's optional fields it would do well to check the market demand. The Actuarial science is one field which seems to have a bright  future with  the various insurance cos coming to into the picture . The hospitality industry  offers a wide variety  of options usually with good exposure.

 

@ Gumrah... Not to discourage anyone but I am curious about why a person would go for an unregistered  or unrecognised  grad  or post grad course !!!  A person usually has some idea about what one would do after completing a 3-5 year course and I guess it would be reasonable to expect them to check the credentials  of the course as well as university  before dedicating those many years  .

@Persephone

You doctors work VERY hard, however your salary reflects that work!  But yeah I have a doctor friend, that works night shifts, weekends, and all antisocial hours and on call duty and what not, she does love her work, but it can get very stressful! 

@Angie.

Forget about a student not checking the accreditation of the course, i am more amused at a university and that too a good university, ,still running the course without accreditation for the undergrad..To get the course accredited, you had to study it till phD level. I never had the passion to dedicate myself to a doctorate level work. In our class, most people I am in touch with, are working in completely different fields right now, or have changed courses and doing something else.

Go for internships, part time or volunteer work. Keep your focus only on the work not remuneration. It counts as experience and your degrees will be counted as you move up the ladder.
