Completed it in 2014 and haven't done any job yet, how can I find a job in software field.. provided that I don't have time and money to study more 

Hello gagan,  Interesting question. Since you have mentioned moving from electronics to computers, you might have researched and know institutes that allow this shift. My search did not reveal this shift. So I am sorry but an M.TECH in computer science after electronics is not possible. My question is why this change all of a sudden. Do a certification in IT and join the IT industry as an electronics engineer. And if you still feel an interest in IT, then pursue an MCA  Wish you good luck...

Dear Aspirant, This question should have been asked by you or thought about before pursuing MA Political Science. How did you know that you have an interest in Information Technology and that too as a career? What is the base for your thinking? You have created confusions for yourself. For making a career in Information Technology you will have to learn it through a formal course and this means that you will still need to put atleast two or three years in doing an IT related course so that you can get a job in the future on that basis. How many more years will you keep studying and w

Dear Aspirant, Since you are already in the IT Engineering course, it would be better if you stick to languages, programming, testing. Your education is very close to these and there is definitely a good scope in those domains. Your interest in computers will help you learn the languages, programming, etc. with dedication and liking. I suggest that at this level do not get confused and continue studying well and aim to get a first class in order to get eligible for good placements in good companies. Best wishes

Dear Aspirant, Sad to hear that in today's competitive world, you admit that you have an average database and programming skills. This indicates that you did not put in efforts as were required in the course learning or may be you did MCA without your willingness or out of compulsion. Are you thinking of changing the domain altogether? That is going to non IT career path? I think you should hunt for a job based on your MCA qualification only and start taking experience. You can look out for small or medium sized companies as a fresher to work where you will get opportunity to learn a

Dear Aspirant, I can understand your disappointment that you could not get through the on-campus as well as off-campus placements opportunities. Here I would strongly suggest you to analyse why you didn't get through? Get to know from those who got selected how they got selected and how they prepared for that? Knowing this is very important for you on the basis of which you can improvise. Since you have passed this year, you will have to keep some patience as well perseverance. Do not stop trying! Get in touch with your friends, relatives who can refer you in the companies they are working may

Dear Aspirant, What do you mean by money or luck not with you? It is important that whether you are a good programmer or no, so that money and luck are with you. Money and luck are with you only when you are properly trained and know what the company organisations expect from you as a programmer and employee. According to me, you have the requisite qualifications to get into the industry, only thing lacking may be some of the employability skills like communication, quantitative skills, etc.  Looking for a government job is not an option. You will have to appear for competitive exams to b

Dear Aspirant, 6 CGPA is a satisfactory grade in Computer Science. I would suggest that you should do your Masters without consuming more time now. A Masters in Computer Science or Masters in Computer Application (MCA) will be a good career decision at this stage when you are not finding job. Instead of waiting and wasting time, its always better to do a course and avoid the gap. Post your Masters degree, there will definitely be more opportunities and also ensure that you get the college placement support at that time. Best wishes

Dear Aspirant, Being academically weak doesn't mean that getting into own business is the option, just because you cannot get a job. Let me tell you that not all drop outs become successful, if you are under that impression. If you are interested into technical aspects like programming, based on your 12th you should do a diploma course in programming, coding languages, etc which will make you employable. Before entering into entrepreneurship, it is always advisable to gain some industry experience so that you can learn the actual practical aspects of the industry, work environment, challenges,

Dear Aspirant, You can work in computer sector through many ways. Which stream are you studying in? Through Arts/Commerce/Science with Maths and IT as a subject, after 12th, you can select BCA course. Later it is necessary to complete MCA for better opportunities. Through Science PCM, you can select Computer Engineering / IT Engineering / Computer Science Engineering  or you can for BSc IT and then MSc IT. After 12th, you can go for hardware and networking courses from private institutes which provide jo assistance. Please choose wisely and carefully. If at all you feel, you are not able

Dear Aspirant, The mistake students make at the beginning is what you have written down. Please do not choose careers based on where are more / high salary packages offered. All fields can give high packages, but the important thing is to assess whether are you yourself so much eligible and competent for getting those high packages? Salary doe snot come for free and jobs are not offered by looking at the education degree and marks. Getting a degree and being an employable candidate are two different things. I suggest that you should make yourself competent, skilled and knowledgeable that you d

Dear Aspirant, I do not see any point and logic behind studying Instrumentation after Diploma in Computer Science Engineering. Why are you thinking this way? Are you not wanting to continue in an exciting field of Computer Science Engineering, where there are plenty of good opportunities for jobs and growth. Studying Instrumentation will be like starting from zero where you CSE knowledge will not be of use in the course. I would suggest you to continue with the degree in CSE and go for related jobs. Best wishes

Dear Aspirant, I really appreciate that you wish to do something of your own. Basically, I am worried by your statement that you wish to be an entrepreneur but not related to your education. Actually, it is better to get into entrepreneurship based on your education domain. You being a computer science student you are thinking of another domain entrepreneurship, which is fine but not very much fool proof. Yes, for being an entrepreneur one does not necessarily think on the basis of the education taken and one can do any business for that matter. For getting into business, first thing required
