Hello Dear,

Answering to you 1st question as you have said you are a student of MCA you have a good career options in both the areas i.e. Website designing and Software/Web developement. All depends is on your area of interest . You have to see where you are more likely interested to work. I will give you some idea about the work fields so you will be able to select any 1 field for your career.

After doing MCA you dont have to study much for Web designing and web designing job is not a tough job. Programming,HTML,PHP, Dream Weaver etc. are being mastered by MCA student as compared to normal Web designing Certificate/Diploma. MCA students are give more priority than Web Designing Certificate/Diploma.MCA students are offered good packages in comparison with Web Designing Certificate/Diploma.

If you are not good /strong in Dream weaver,Flash Programming,Flash Scripting etc.than you should think before getting into this field. You can upgrade yourself by taking such short duration courses in private institutes like NIIT for the above mentioned areas.

If you are really interested in web designing than you must have strong knowledge of PHP,Flash Programming, Flash Scripting these are in more demand and will boost your career.

Speaking about Software/Web Development: MCA students have a good career in this field also. Especially in big organizations where software engineers work at various hierarchy they need MCA students for development of software's. So you have a good opportunities in both big and Small IT companies for various roles depending on your caliber.

Answering your second question:

How to apply in TCS,Wipro,Infosys they have ON Campus interviews through the respective colleges in which you are studying. If in case there is no ON Campus interviews than you can apply through OFF Campus interviews. OFF Campus interviews notifications are given on their respective companies website you have to register here if you fulfill their criteria (you can enroll during you finale year of MCA for interviews ) or they issue an advertisement newspaper like THE HINDU.

To get selected in these MNC companies you should :

1. Have a good knowledge of the Company by visiting on their domain.

2.Work on aptitude,current affairs.

3.Technical questions are questioned.

4.Communication skills.

You can also apply in Cognizant,IBM,Accenture,Yahoo,Amazon,Microsoft etc.

Thank you,
Wish you Good Luck

Regrads,
