An Expert’s Guide to Top 101 Entry-level Jobs for MBAs and Graduates identifies job roles that will create nearly 2 million new entry-level vacancies in the next six years. Analyses of the data released by the National Skill Development Corporation reveals that these corporate jobs will benefit a plethora of aspirants, including those with qualifications such as BE, BTech, BA, BCom, BSc, BBA, BCA, BPharm, BL, as well as MBA, MCA, MBBS, CA, ICWA, CS and diplomas.
Bestselling author T. Muralidharan is one of India’s top recruiters and career columnists. In his first book, he revealed how many job seekers go for the first available job only to regret joining within months and also how taking up the Right First Job (RFJ) can be the secret to reaching the top. In this book, he goes far beyond identifying the top jobs by helping readers understand the job roles in the context of how organizations work, answering crucial questions such as: What responsibilities does the role entail? What are the skills required? What will the stress levels be like? What salary can you expect? What are the career prospects?
With practical insights and contemporary data, this first-of-its-kind book to hit the Indian market will help you find the right job and drive your career firmly to the top.


Though the blurb explains about the book to a certain extent, still it has a lot more knowledge waiting to be fetched behind the pages. The book includes major departments and aspects on industries, namely sales department, operations department, management, finance, banking etc. and separate explanations of the same. All of the sectors are expanded with several relevant examples, and are understandable and amusing to read. A guide by nature, the book implements expert advises as well, which are thoroughly beneficial to the students like me (I am a BSc. Comp. Sci. student, and personally speaking, the book has taught me many things that I was unaware of).

The book is first-of-its-kind, like the introduction states, and satisfactorily it has been put down well. The author gives a glimpse of his meticulous study in the first few chapters of the book itself, and the pictographs and the charts add a glare to the narration. The narration is explicit, grippy, also the minute details of the respective study fields makes the reader understand the actual ways of the working of the sectors.

The illustrative examples written by the author – also the illustrative pictures – approach an understandable aspect to the reading, and nowhere does it seem boring. Kudos to the author for handling such topics amidst the breezy and fast paced narration. Though in the middle of the book the reader might feel it a little boring, it is negligible.

One of the notable things is the shuffling of point of views. It has been done really good and doesn’t feel unnecessary anywhere.

The editing is appreciable and upto the mark, so is the author’s efforts and study of the industries and the types of jobs.

This book is a must read for the aspirants, no matter whatever field are you from. Like the author mentions, this book is beneficial not only for the students, but also for parents, placement officers, and job counselors as well.

4.4 stars from my side.

The book indeed has a room for being more explanatory, as education is an endless medium awaiting to be explored. Overall, a must pick for students to understand the minute details of the industries and jobs.
