Freshers, Your graduation / post graduation degrees were the main doses for career. If you are still not confident, there is no harm in getting a booster dose of skills. I will discuss below why it is important even for working folks.
I had discussed about the variety of freshers in my earlier post Embedded Jobs for freshers.
I used to get multiple queries related to embedded job from all kinds of freshers. In this article , I am going to provide few tips to students based on my experience.
What is your self rating ?
You can do a self check on following points considering each one as 1 mark. What is your score ?
It is not necessary to get 10/10 because you can’t change few things like career gap now but you can improve on other points.
1: Good Academic background
2: Good communication skills
3: Humble . This is important even after experience or getting multiple patents.
4: Proactive . This is key for success.
5: Experience in programming language not just in scripting
6: Aware of basic Electronics concepts
7: Good knowledge of Microprocessor
8: Worked on at least two unique projects with Industry level tools
9: No career gap
10: Ready to relocate anywhere in India
There are many experienced embedded folks in my connection. They can add additional points if I missed any.
If your score is 8 or above and still not getting job , You just need some mentorship to enter in the core industry.

Why Mentor is necessary ?
Everyone can’t do self rating based on the 10 points I suggested. I have come across many students who had potential to do better but they were not confident for job interview. On the other hand, one student started asking for referral within a week of joining our Embedded developer kit course.
So mentor can help here provided s/he has enough industry experience. Mentor can also provide pointer to improve both soft and hard skills.
Why one should take Embedded system training ?
“”Excellence is not a skill, it’s an attitude.” Ralph Marston
One can always improve learning attitude.
I often see one common question in Quora ” Do I need engineering degree for technical job ? ”
We all know that engineering help in making strong foundation for technical career in particular domain. That is your main dose for career. One has to take it seriously. Many students don’t need any additional embedded training course for getting first job.
Do we need any course just to get a job ?
No . It is not true. If you don’t believe , read this till end. You will find many working folks took courses to refresh skills along with Embedkari community.
We all have dynamic memory which requires refresh cycle. There is no harm in refreshing it using courses. It has no side effect for sure.
Apart from getting job , another motivation for embedded training is to remain competitive.
Embedded training helps in understanding the industrial implementation of concepts learned during engineering. It also connects you with tools being used in the industry.
