Are you confused with career options or got stuck in low salary job ?
We may help you in selecting right path.
Every year almost 1.5 million (15 lakhs) engineers complete degree but only 2 lakh get job. Majority of students opt for IT jobs because that used to be only option in campus interview.
Mostly service based companies visit various engineering colleges for campus recruitment. This is good in terms of getting job and opportunity to learn many things related to industry.
Do you agree ?
Most of the students will agree for getting on-campus job in any IT company. Lets try to analyze this :
- Opportunity to learn industry development and testing tools
- Regular earning source
- If company is 5 day week, students can spend weekend to upgrade other skills
- Good students may get chance to work on customer site outside India
- Soft skills training
- Access to FREE training resources
- Laptop and lab equipment acces
- Service based companies hire people based on contracts , so there is a risk of contract cancellation
- Too much delay in providing joining date
- Service based companies may deploy employee to any client location
- One can get simple testing or code maintenance kind of job
- In few cases, Engineers were deployed in BPO kind of support task
- Most of the companies used to have service bond or 3 months notice period
- 3 months notice period may be burden in switching job
- Average salary increment
What is the solution ?
Solution is to work logically and proactively from second year itself.
- Make a list of companies visiting your campus or in your preferred cities
- Identify well established companies based on foundation year
- Find Linkedin URL of the company and employees background
- Check about company founders or management team
- You can also find frequent job requirement in career page of the company
- Students can use Google sheet and do such work in a team
- Please remember your competition is not with your classmate or batchmate but at India level
- Try to get opportunity for internship in such companies instead of any public sector
