Based on the discussion in your post, you should take the job, work the two years, looking for something better the entire time, forget additional schooling and hope to find the job you would prefer at the end of the two years. If you don't do this and try to find something better, you could: 1. not find a better job for quite some time. 2. find a better job and then realize you don't like it. 3. get fired from that better job. 4. not be supporting yourself, which should be your immediate goal. If you haven't received any other offers yet, why would you not take the only job you have? (Unless you have no financial responsibilities.)

You are a college graduate. Is it really that difficult to actually spell words correctly?

You aren't going to make USA wages in India and with your limited grammar you probably can't get hired in US anyway. Sometimes you have to settle for what you can get. That's true in the US right now too!

Your starting salary has absolutely no bearing on your future earning potential. The types of companies and the opportunities you receive (especially early on in your career) have great impact on your earning potential.

Stop worrying about short term gains and look to the future. Working at a prestigious firm in India will give you a lot of future opportunities in India and abroad. You need to pay your dues.

Good Luck, but I think your father is doing you a great favor. Too bad you may not realize this for another 10 years when its too late.

Well you're not in India. No one in India would be writing posts like this.

Very sad that a college graduate can't write a post in basic ENGLISH.

Thanks guys. Great reviews basically.

Am sorry for the "bad English". Was so used to sms lingo that forgot to switch it off here.

Will take care of that from now onwards.

On the other hand, regarding the main issue in hand, am thinking of accepting the company's job offer currently but asking them to prolong my joining for a fortnight or so.

By that time am thinking of looking for other opportunities as well, whether it be walk-in interviews or the joint companies-single entrance test conducted by ventures like elitmus etc.

I hope this decision of mine can be deemed as good enough...ehh??

I think you should try for a gov't job instead.

Sadly, I understood your sms lingo better than your original post. I suggests you take a couple of courses in english and business writing. I'm not trying to be funny but most engineers are known for their analytical skills and not their writing abilities. This will probably help you in your future job prospects as well.

It sounds like you and your father have some issues that need to be addressed. The dilemma here (especially with with your age) is separating and becoming independent; and maintaining a good relationship with your father. Unfortunately, this just so happens to be occurring at the same time you've finished your formal education.

Due to the state of the world economy, I think its prudent to utilize your fathers contacts to begin your career. This would be the proverbial killing two birds with one stone. You'd satisfy your fathers need to get you started into independence and be able to gain valuable skills to make yourself more marketable in your own endeavors. Remember that your father loves you and just wants the best for you even though he's not good at controlling his emotions (it seems).

Two years is a short amount of time. If this route doesn't work for you, at least you'll have the experience to reflect on and still be young enough to give it a go on your own terms.
