my answer to your question is it all depends to you. if you're from a family who needs additional income, might as well find first a good paying job so that not only can you help your family but you can also save some for your masteral degree. Now its a different story if you came from a well off or middle class type where you are not really required to have a job immediately. Continuing your studies to masteral would be the best decision for you or as you said your subject is not your favorite, maybe you can take some time first to find what you really wanted to do. Like finding where your heart is, because that's the only way you will be sure that you will be happy with whatever career you will be choosing. Masteral degree is of course an edge - an advantage over to other applicants. But its up to you, like i said earlier, if which decisions you will make. As my own quote says, "Don't ever regret the mistakes you committed, just learn from them". So don't be afraid to commit mistakes as they will serve as your teachers - given of course those mistakes are not criminal offenses or something like that.

that's pretty tough if your still don't know what to do or plans for future yet normal, it takes really years to know somebody's wanted plan for herself/himself that's why purpose driven life is very saleable, haha kidding aside try to go to some place wherein you can meditate, reflect that will help you think of your plans and your objectives for earning money that's the very good basis to start thinking your plans

I suggest you should not be too concerned about your future. Many succeasful people did not study in university. This means that knowledge from university does not guarantee that degree holders will be successful people.

As you've said it's your choice..if you are really determined to finished your schooling then it doesn't matter where and what school you from.. what is important is you learned as what supposed to be learned in your course.. actually in reaching your dream graduate in a good /private school is a plus but not a requirement of for success..

Thank you.I know school is not the most important to success,my own effort is mainly.But,which made me upset is that I don't know what's job I want to do or what I'm good at?How can I find my shining point?

Hi! I think both would give you a better future. If you get a job immediately, you can earn-save money more because you started earlier in life. If you continue studying, you'll enhance your skills and knowledge, and perhaps be an expert on your expertise. What you must decide on first is your interest or dream. If your goal is to be proud of yourself, start correcting your mistakes. Do something that you really, really, really like to do. Enhance it to be better and perhaps you can find ways to get money from that. You can combine studying and working. Just make sure you're comfortable and satisfied with what you do. Good luck Wendyzwt! Thanks for the discussion ;)
