Hey Dear,

One of the most frequently asked question and for that matter the most genuine question. Everyone has this urge to know about the salary that he or she would be getting and also some of the average salary package that one can expect to get as well.

But to be true the average salary package that one can expect after completing the 4 year software degree course is around 3 Lakhs but remember that it is not always true and it might vary depending on how much you have cleared the papers and how well you have done in the 4 years of the exam.
Also remember that there are many other criteria along with it. As many a times most of the company have a set criteria that you have to be eligible for.

Many a times they say that you should have minimum 6 CGPA and sometimes they every say that you should not have a back in all the years which is also an added advantage for you. So try and maintain both of the things.

Also many a times good companies will ask you to sit for the Aptitude and Reasoning test which you will have to qualify after which there is Group Discussion and Personal Interview.

Also your salary package depends on how well you fair in all the rounds as well.

So do well..... and work hard.....

Best Wishes!
