I am an unemployed college graduate without previous work experience. I have an undergraduate business degree, and I am planning on enrolling in one of these two graduate programs next year, with the intention of seeking full-time summer internships and/or part-time fall/spring work. Hopefully I can gain the level of experience necessary to obtain a full-time job upon graduation. Both interest me, and I believe I can succeed in both. With that being the case, employment opportunities are of the utmost importance to me. Does anyone have any opinions on this matter? Opinions based at least somewhat on real-world knowledge or observation, as opposed to just studies and reports.

The university I will be attending insists the employment opportunities are good for both.

More school won't help you. Real job experience will. You have a business degree. Use it to get a job in business.

Are you looking for jobs nationwide? Have you come up with a systematic plan to look for a job? Are you applying to at least 50-100 jobs per week? Are you looking in multiple areas? Have you had a respected business professional review your resume and cover letter? How are your interview skills?

Go back to school if you want to but you don't have to if your goal is to get an entry level job. You can do a lot with a Business degree.

More school or another degree is not a guarantee for employment.

Get some experience and attend school part time while working. Maybe the employer will even reimburse tuition!
