For those who are already a CS (Computer Science) or IT (Information Technology) graduate:
A. Public Sector:
- If you have 60% in your graduation, then you have got the huge chances to try in any of the following famous government firms:
- ONGC (Oil and Natural Gas Corporation)
- DRDO (Defense Research and Development Organization)
- ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation)
- BSNL JTO (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited, Junior telecom officer)
- BHEL (Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited)
- NTPC (National Thermal Power Corporation)

- CDIT (Consumer Durables & IT)
- IOCL (Indian Oil Corporation Limited)
- IES (Indian Engineering Services)
- IAS (Indian Administrative Service)
- IPS (Indian Police Service)
- CDS.(Combined Defense Services)
- Most of these companies or I must say 'All' consider your GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) score for recruitment.
- There are various tests conducted by UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) and SSC (Staff Selection Commission). SSC tests are for the CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) and are called CGPE (Centre for Global Political Economy) exams. SSC also conducts tests for Income Tax Officer and many more.
- PSBs (Public Sector Banks) are also a good option for you to work as a government employee. What is most important to work in banks is to have a brilliant knowledge of mathematics and economics. Most of them conduct their own test which is followed by Personal Interview.
- On the site Government Job Alerts, you can find more information regarding the latest job openings.
B. Private Sector:
- IT companies like TCS (TATA Consultancy Services), Infosys, Wipro (Western India Products), CTS (Cognizant Technology Solutions), HCL (Hindustan Computers Limited), Satyam, HP (Hewlett Packard) and many more hires full time CS or IT professionals.
- The hiring depends on your presentation as well as technical skills. If the company is recruiting on-campus, then they, generally, filter the students on the basis of their GPA (Grade Point Average) first and then start their recruitment process.
- Besides the technical companies, other companies, which are all about Tech Support, call centers and BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) also offer a number of perks and fine salary.
- It is recommended to try in technical companies because working in these companies will not help you to enhance your technical knowledge, your speaking and communication skills will become brilliant though.
C. Further studies:
- If you have no plan for working right now and want to study more, then many creative options are there for you such as MBA (Master of Business Administration), M.tech (Master of Technology), MCA (Master of Computer Applications) and many more depending on what career path you wish to take.
- Study abroad is a brilliant option and if you want the same, then make it fast as the seats are limited and your visa will need time. Additionally, most of the foreign institutes also ask for the proof of your English proficiency.
- Some of the famous tests for English proficiency are IELTS (International English Language Testing System), TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) and GRE (Graduate Record Examination).
- You can also visit a site named Educomp. Educomp is the largest Indian education company. It deals with the subjects related to schools and higher education as well as education abroad, mainly including Asia Pacific and America.
- To study MBA in India, there are plenty of entrance exams, out of which CAT (Common Admission Test) is the most famous. Other exams are either similar to CAT or conducted by specific institutes to select perfect candidates to admit. These are:
- MAT (Management Aptitude Test)
- XAT (Xavier’s Aptitude Test)
- JMET (Joint Management Entrance Test)
- FMS (Faculty of Management Studies)
- IBSAT (ICFAI Business School Aptitude Test)
- SNAP (Symbiosis National Aptitude Test)
- CMAT (Common Management Admission Test).
- To study MBA abroad, taking the GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) exam is the most preferable option. The premier institutes will consider you, only and only if you have a GMAT score greater than 700.
GOOD LUCK FOR YOUR CAREER AHEAD...!!!
