I am doing my MA in English Literature at the moment. I have thought about being a professor for the last four years or so but I am no sure if I want to, or for that matter stay in academia anymore. The unstable, low paying conditions and pathetic conditions of phd scholars and adhoc professors is just making me question if doing MA was the right decision. I feel like branching out, but I am not sure where to. I have been thinking about UPSC for some time, but the again I am not sure if that is what I want or I am doing it because of the potential job security in this field.
