How To Search For A Job After B.Tech

It sounds absolutely difficult and hard right? But I have some sincere tips for the student looking for jobs. First of all, I m totally not in favor of wasting time just not knowing what to do after completing studies? I feel students need to immediately set their mind on certain things and move on within a month or so after completing studies. I believe these tips are equally helpful for not only B.Techs but any other degree holder too.

Here are the tips for the students looking for jobs. One thing one must understand the jobs may not be available in your core area of interest immediately or when you need them. The best possible thing is to get in early with whatever is available and keep trying for the best possible and desired positions.

The first thing is to move to a metro city with a single aim of hunting for a job. Just don’t waste your time there. There are hundreds of students go there and probably few of your friends are there. Join them for accommodation and start hunting from day one.

Second thing there are hundreds of website offering job search and hunt help. Register in almost all of them. Complete the registration and track the recruitments. Don’t miss LinkedIn profiles, make connections there and hunt for HRs and mail them asking for jobs. Join different forums and groups of your interest where usually HRs drop in and check for requirements and post openings. LinkedIn would definitely help you with this.

Third thing is to find consultants who can arrange an interview for you with the companies. Don’t pay then in advance, tell them that you are a poor student will pay after your get the job. They have gone professionals and these days many companies use their services for recruiting employees.

Fourth, don’t miss any news papers job special, like Times Ascent and The Hindu’s ….. Pick out the companies you want to attend interview and definitely go for tests and interviews.

Fifth, figure out who among your friend and seniors are industry working in your domain. Don’t think that how do they feel when you call them after such a long time and only when you are in need. Just give a call and ask for some time for tea or a coffee. Visit their room and take recommendations and ask for referrals. Don’t disappoint if they are not very helpful, everyone have their own reservations.

Sixth, don’t hesitate to join some institute or specialized courses that you may feel that you are lacking in. for example programming, aptitude, or some software related to your field. Choose to go to an institute that offer placements and have good industry interface. If possible do work for some specialized international certification course.

To end, the idea is that everyone who is recruiting should have your CV in hand, and know you are looking for a job. Don’t waste your time and don’t get into bad habits. Usually people go out of home for cities get into mess for first few months before they realizes that the need to do something with that. To name few wrest things for job hunters are waking up late, sleeping late nights, too much into friends, too much into movies and roaming around without any good valid reason. Mostly people get influence with friends and easily tend to do bad stuff just to be polite or have a company. If someone letting you in his room doesn’t mean that you need to do all what he or she does. Being polite and humble doesn’t mean that you do all bad your friend does.

I just call you to be original with this. Stay honest and be humble say what do you can do and you cannot. I never smoke, never drunk, and never overlooked on religious obligations even in biggest parties, where vice presidents asked me for a sip of alcohol. All other team members were saying I wish he would have told me this and that would have that chance. Being original makes you happy and comfortable in life. Anyone ask you for something bad for once, if you deny you are still friends, if you accept you are still friend. Make your choice wisely.

Wish you all a great luck and future ahead.

    Everything depends on your scores

    If you scored above 60 then you can DEFINITELY get the job

    If you scored less than 60 then you have no options except CSAT or a clerk job

But don’t lose hope, n keep working on. You will surely get success in the mean time.

    Very good topic and writing , i am greatly impressed. Thats what i was expecting from inspire n ignite.

    The writer of the topic is very correct and a must read for all job aspirants and those who are not also.

    I am passed out from RTU , kota 2010 batch and I got job in Tescom pvt ltd. I scored 98% score in Gate 2011 , EC , still i am not taking any admissions in

    I want to do job to learn those practical things which i cant learn while studying in NIt’s or any institute.

    I would say that all those who are dropping years only to get IIts , should not waste their time in such fuss.
    They should take a job and should make Gate or Cat exams as secondary , this would give some mental relief from failures in competition exams.

    My many friends had dropped about 3-4 years in ber sarai only for gate and psu exams , still they havnt achieved thier goal , now they are very depressed also.

    So please students and friends dont waste your time , pick a job as said by ZAYED in this topic.

    Jahid Sir, The last stanza is really very worthy…”Being original makes you happy and comfortable in life.” really good one..
