What to do after clearing the UGC NET/ JRF?UGC NET/JRF is conducted for college assistant professorship or you can continue further studies.
Lets consider two separate cases(NET only and JRF) and talk on these two cases one by one.
Case 1: After clearing the NET only:
So friends, if you are NET cleared, you can apply for the job as an Assistant Professor in the colleges or in the Universities. However after 2021, PhD will be mandatory for the Assistant Professor in the Universities but with NET you can apply in the colleges without any issue.
Moreover you can also do PhD after NET. The benefit is: if you are NET cleared you will be exempted for the entrance exam in the PhD admission process but you have to appear for the Interview.
After clearing the NET, You can open your own tutorial and can help other candidates to clear this prestigious exam.
My suggestion is if you are NET Cleared and your age is less than 30. you should given one more chance to JRF.
Case 2: After clearing the JRF only:
JRF stand for Junior Resource Fellowship means you will be given a fellowship (around rupees 40000) if you do PhD. So the main motive of the students after clearing the JRF is to pursue the PhD.
