Possible Answer #1:
“As soon as I graduated, I felt the urge to start working in the real world. It’s not that I am a total novice.
I have undergone 3 internships, of which 2 are paid from reputed organizations.
This credential has helped me land an offer from one of those firms.
I sometimes wonder whether I should have first completed my post-graduation.
Had I done so, I wouldn’t have been able to develop my complete portfolio.
And I am hoping that my track record will help me get selected for this position in your esteemed organization.”
Possible Answer #2:
“Having a PG degree is important, but I don’t think it is mandatory.
Most job seekers out there have similar degrees. In order to differentiate, a PG degree from a reputed university along with the total experience can obviously help me stand out.
I am aware of this and as soon as I get a call from any university about an executive program with weekend classes, I will surely enroll for the same.
As of now, I have a lot of responsibilities back home, which is why I don’t think it will be wise on my part to enroll myself into a full-time PG program.”
