Got Placed, Now What?

I'm sure a lot of our CEans in final year of engineering have been placed in various companies. From my own experience, the education and the industry connect is missing. In such a situation; a lot of fresh graduate find that what they expected is very different from what's being offered, once they join.

If you've been placed, are you planning to do something new/special to prepare for the job? Or just relaxing and taking the things the way they come to you?

Every big company will typically invest in training the candidates. But it will help a lot if you spend some time studying on your own 😀

At first I thought of preparing for the job, by learning c,c++,java,. net. When I approached a institute to learn .Net alone, they charged me nearly 20,000 ( which is not affordable for me at present😔 ). Thus got relaxed and plan to take things that come on my way 😉

Why not engage in self-study which I consider as the best form of study? Just pick up a good book on programming language of your choice and then start preparing. It's fun when you pick up the things out of interest.

Why not pick up a project on your own and start developing it? It'd not only expose you to several new concepts and 'ways' of getting things done through programming! Pick up PHP and start developing a plug-in for Wordpress! What an awesome thing to do! 👍

I started to read Java, from CE tutorials only. But I hardly read about it for two days only😀.

It's a matter of personal discipline and how passionately you are involved in the subject. Anything done half-heartedly won't last for more than just a few days.

Ya... I will accept it The_Big_K
But its quite hard to get involved.
Anyway I planned to start practicing after may 15th. First of all I should reduce my interest in electrical, That is the main hindrance for me at present.
