Firstly, there are very limited jobs available after BCA.

Secondly, there is no major benefit in gaining job experience after BCA and then pursuing masters.

Hence my suggestion is one should pursue MCA after BCA and then go for jobs.

One should do MCA after BCA if you like to work in computer application field and you are looking to become IT professional / Software Developer / Game Development / Animations etc.

If you don’t like to continue further in Computer Application, Actuarial Science is upcoming field. The discipline of Actuarial science applies mathematical and statistical methods to weigh risk in insurance, finance and other industries and occupations. let me know if you like to more about Actuarial science

There are lot of different specialization in IT / Software Development field. You will need to see what interests you more and then learn those languages / tools with or without Certifications.
