Option 2

As soon as you are out of your engineering college, the first thing you want to be is a Software Engineer, if not for all but maybe for most of the peers. It’s no surprise that 40% of the students are finding it so hard to get into a software firm and are waiting for years ending up with finishing up courses from external sources. Is that necessary?


Do you really need to complete courses?

It’s no wrong if you are learning new stuff. But it is not necessary to get into courses. If it’s necessary what about the groups, who are easily getting into the jobs?

No answer? No worries we have tips for you.

So what are the tips to get fit in one?

Good scores in academic?

Not really!

Of course, 55% in your academic career is necessary and what else is required you think. The first and foremost thing that gets you a job is Communication skills. You cannot get anything in the corporate world until or unless you open your mouth and ask for something. And to speak out, you need to know their language, and it is nothing but the global language English again.

Let us look into the procedure of hiring a fresher. You will be asked to take an Aptitude test and then get involved in a Group discussion with your fellow attendees. These are the phases where the significant filtration takes place. Then only the technical interview comes into the picture. It is all about what have you learned in these four years of engineering and what skills you have referred in your Resume.

Companies don’t expect much from freshers, except the very basic things. If you have no grip on your basics, you are gone. Nonetheless, of the department, everyone has one fascinating subject which gives us eligibility to enter into the Software industry. The great ‘C’ language. Be strong in it, brush up the basics because it is the only reason you are getting to the software industry. People don’t expect you to be masters in it but might not entertain if you are not able to pitch into simple things at least.

So, what all freshers need are excellent communication skills, aptitude, few basics of C language and some of your core subjects. No worries if you are weak in anything. Just plan accordingly and start working. You will definitely be in, and you stand special for sure in your group.

Even for Bank exams or any other government jobs, the foremost basics are Aptitude and then English. So, don’t miss out them. The English subject and English labs you have during your graduation are not for fun, or a subject included because the syllabus setters haven’t found something else interesting.

On top of all these, Planning is vital for every individual. Everyone plans in their own way and implements in their own way. Just Plan, Prepare and Execute for your Success.

Good Luck!
