A pertinent question here.
This is what I would suggest:
Job opportunities are ample: in BPOs, IT companies, MNCs, MMEs or SMEs in administrative, research or similar roles.
Job in a computer company is not based on just basic knowledge of computers. Nowadays knowledge of computers is very common. For a job in computers, you need to know foundations of computer programming like at least one programming language, data structures, logical and analytical thinking skills, may be mobile app development etc. If you have a strong computer background, then getting an IT job is easy.
Higher education: Can opt for MSc or MCA. Then you can take up a job. But a word of caution: check out the college for campus placement. Select a college where good companies come for Campus placement. Else getting a job in IT on your own is sure going to be an uphill task.
To decide between higher studies and job, base it on the following factors:
1. Interest in studying further, and willingness to study well
2. Financial position of family
3. Take a break from studies and then opt for higher education after getting some work experience
Hope this helps.
Autograph your work with excellence!
