  • There are many other jobs in addition to a programming job. All the IT jobs are not only for programming. There will be some support jobs and there will be some testing jobs. You can opt for those jobs. Data Science field also is a good field and you can try for those jobs also.
    Studying higher studies or going for a job depends on the individual's interest and family financial position. One has to make a decision based on the above two issues.
    You can go for MCA or MSc computers. There are many short term courses in the field of Data Science. You can do that by joining some good institute in your area. That will improve the chances of getting a job in that field. Based on the present job scenario I suggest you try for a job and join at the earliest possible.
