Couldn't make it to the top BCA colleges? Need not to worry! Your career will never be obedient to which college you gained education from. Many top colleges are just overrated in terms of high cut-offs.
There are many average colleges which provide decent education which is enough for your bright career. Your career prospects are same as any BCA degree holder from any college. You can do all those things which a top college BCA degree holder can do.
The uniformity of the syllabus blurs the line between the top colleges and average colleges. Studying in top colleges doesn't mean that you have a bright future. Similarly, studying in an average college doesn't mean that your career is dull. The urge to learn and the passion towards your work make all the difference. BCA opens the door to number of career options after the span of three years. You just need to make your mind to what you want to do.

Career and Success Coach | Corporate Facilitator
Wouldn't it be so wonderful if you could lead a life that is not given to you by people or situations around you but the one that you desire from within your heart? I had dreamt of such a life for long and, therefore, took a decision of dropping off my decade-long career in geospatial space and follow my heart. No matter how successful and rewarding my job was, I knew my true calling is connecting and engaging with people. So, I went on to become a certified life coach offering personalised 1-on-1 and group coaching programs to-
* To-be professionals not able to decide which course to take next or which skill to acquire that best suits their interest and capability.
* Working Professionals who took a break in career but now want to re-start
* Working professionals who are discontented with their current position and want to make a move or shift
Starting from identifying my clients' needs to establishing goals, I work toward helping them shift their mindset and think bigger so that they can reach their full potential and grow professionally.

Career Counsellor & Certified Trainer
Choosing a right career is very important. A cautious decision taken after 10th class/ 12th class / Graduation and after B.Tech. has a long impact on your life. As education is expensive and requires lot of efforts to be successful, there is a need of a career counsellor/guide.
I guide the students for career options suitable for them on an individual basis after their 10th Or 12th Or Graduation. I also guide them over their fitment for Arts, Commerce and Science Stream.
With realistic approach, I have saved the money of lots of parents and most valuable time of more than 500+ students by showing them the right direction.
