    Dear sir, I am an Ex-serviceman ( Ex-sergeant) of Indian Air Force. While doing service, I completed MTM from IGNOU with 63.91 percent of marks in 2008. I thought that I will serve in a tourism department but many people informed me ” career in tourism department ends at 35 years of age. Nobody is going to give me job at the age of 40 years old.” Therefore, I completed MBA-HR through distance mode only in 2010 with 56.95 % of marks. Seeing the condition ofjobs outside I am preparing for Bank and School teacher job in West Bengal. Whatever effort I put to complete MTM programme, with that effort I could very well complete MA in a school studied subject like English or History and now I could avail benefits in teacher job. Now, if I get school teacher job on my graduation subject then I will get less payment because a MA degree holder in a school studied subject like History or English get more payment as he falls in the category of PG. My MA in Tourism Management degree will create laughter among other teachers because this subject does not have any use in school education.
