How is the job scenario in CDAC Pune for Software Engineers?
Everyone keeps talking about CDAC courses but very few talks about the job there. I wanna know why is it so? Is CDAC good for training only? There are many good job opportunities as i have read and they also offer government benefits to employees. If anybody has any idea about this then please help.
Welcome to CrazyEngineers, @Mahima Awasthi . I had talked with a few people who did CDAC courses. In general, recruitments in any season are driven by the overall market scenario. There are seasons when there will be lot of companies recruiting CDAC candidates; and there will be 'low' hiring season as well.
However, CDAC overall should be a great addition.
Is CDAC good for training only?
Not really. In fact, it helps prepare the topic in depth that most of the engineering students miss during their four-year studies. I've had an ex-colleague who was a CDAC alumni and he was super confident about his programming skills.
When the client had asked us to pick up a new programming language; he was the first one to do so and then taught the rest of the team. He credited it to his learnings at CDAC.
Unfortunately, most candidates opt for CDAC only as a short-cut to the jobs market. While that's true, they don't pay attention to what the industry demands. The industry wants good programmers / skilled people who can bring good value to the table.
I'm not sure about government benefits to employees. But good CDAC candidates who I've personally known were absorbed by the industry within 6 months of finishing their training - either through the campus or through walk-ins.
Pune is an important IT Hubs in India and if you opt for good course - your chances of getting picked up in a good company are better over others.
