Career Options after Graduations (B.C.A., B.Sc., B.S., B.E/B.Tech)


Lot of young people write the competitive exams expecting a secure government job, and there is a chance of one in 200 to get in to those jobs. There are lot of exiting options available in IT field. Some of the prominent options are given below:

  • Web developer
  • Front end developer (GUI – Graphical User Interface)
  • Coding (Visual Studio, C#, VB, etc.)
  • Digital Marketing (web promotion, SEM, SEO, Social promotion, etc.)
  • Networking (Cisco CCNA, Juniper JNCIA, Network+, etc)
  • Testing (Manual, Automated – scripting)
  • Systems admin (Windows/Linux/Unix)
  • Graphic design (Logo design, Graphic/Video editing, etc.)
  • Cloud Administration (AWS, etc)
  • SEO Analyst (Google adwords, On-page/Off-page optimization, web promotion, etc.)

The above are a few which I get readily in mind and I’m sure there are quite a lot which were not mentioned above.

Most of the above mentioned areas are very promising, and provide a career, if one is serious about it. Among them, Digital Marketing, SEO Analyst, Cloud admin are very recent and have better chances of landing a job (at least in the near term). Networking, Systems admin, coding or testing career paths are well established and usually they under go ups and downs from time to time. If you have flair for Graphic design, it’s very good career to pursue. Web design (including front end design and scripting) is in good demand, but one needs to be an expert in domain technologies such as front end development (GUI design), php/mysql, javascript, html5, CSS3, etc. It has a long learning curve just like programmer/coding jobs.

Recently, Full Stack Developer is heard more frequently, reflecting the need for professionals who have complete domain knowledge and project life cycle experience. It deals with design, development, and support issues in any given domain of technologies.

If you have flair for programming, Visual Studio would be good as it provides a shorter learning curve compared to Unix/C++/Java.

Good luck!
