I'm currently working in the tech field, and I have studied Electrical Engineering.
I hold a Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering. For those who don't know, it's a different degree than a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. you take more credits and it makes you eligible as an 'Engineer' for the workplace.
Beside the fact that pursuing a degree that requires the same effort as a Masters degree without getting one is a bad idea, this was ok where I used to live and when I moved to Germany recruiters became perplexed by my degree and are always comparing it to a Bachelor's degree.
Now I'm still able to find a job thanks to the huge German job market, but my question is the following for professionals working in Germany:
- Should I pursue a Master's degree?
- Would that be beneficial for my career track to show on my resume, even though I would be studying something that I already know?
- Does the experience I gather have a stronger impact?
