The importance for getting your Master’s degree right after you receive your Bachelor’s is different for every career. For example, I am majoring in engineering and the majority of engineers that I have talked to have said that getting your Master’s degree will not get you any higher on the list of applicants. I know some careers it is important to get your Master’s right away. Note that some companies will actually pay for you to go back to school and get your Master’s so don’t be in too much of a rush. Nothing sounds better than getting paid to go to school.
In conclusion, unless you just absolutely love school and want to delay entering the real world, don’t be in a rush to get your Master’s degree. My best advice would be to ask different people in the career you are planning on entering and ask if it is necessary to get your Master’s.
