An Engineering degree and a Software job go hand in hand with today’s generation. Creating software involve engineering principles. Software engineering, known as the job with the highest salaries, is getting more and more in demand nowadays due to the development of technology.
The IT sectors are gaining a stronger grip on India’s economy today. The Tech parks with more than 20 companies are an exuberant place for viewing the latest luxuries, fashion trends and sophistication. The recruitment process is good as well!
But how to land yourself in such a job?
The Reality Check Of an Engineering Degree
No matter which stream you choose in your engineering, you are likely to end up in a software job except if you are in the 10% group who fall into the government sectors and the core companies.
Recruitment Process For a Software Job
1.Aptitude Or Non-Verbal Reasoning!
The aptitude screening is the first round in the recruitment process and hence you need to be vigilant enough. With general preparation, one can easily crack the first round if prepared well, it’s not rocket science but common sense!

The GK Ranganath book is always preferred for the interview preparations.
It depends on the respective companies to decide the application of this round. Group discussion, as the name suggests, is a discussion that takes place in a group on the specific topic that the company decides upon.
Your confidence is what is measured here along with the validity of your points.
It also gives them a pre-view of your attitude right at the beginning of the recruitment process.
You need to have a little bit of knowledge and everything depends on how you weave your answers with everybody’s perspective. Remember, you do not insist on your point instead you discuss it. So don’t be a shark and deprive others of food and neither be too silent as it can result in rejection of the job offer.
Once both the screenings are done, you have a face-to-face interview with your recruiters. Irrespective of their mood, it is your preparation that matters.
This plays a prominent role in getting your dream job hence be well updated with what you have mentioned in your resume. Don’t just have copies of others resumes and amend it according to your name and scores. You can use a free resume builder to create a stunning resume and stand out from the crowd.
Most of the questions will be revolving around every sentence that you have mentioned in your resume. If you are from a computer science stream, questions will be converged to programming and other basic languages.
If you are from any other stream, you are required to at-least have a basic knowledge of the computer languages such as C and C++ and be prepared with any two subjects of your choice. Probabilities are that they tend to question you from your preference but you need to know the subject well.
If you have reached this round, chances are that you’ll be placed are great. However, there are exceptions. They will be more friendly in this round and look out for your confidence, how you can adjust with people, how well you can play as a team player as well as how deserving you are to be a team leader. They look out for your approach towards life and your spontaneity.
My advice is to just be yourself and don’t be stressed and nervous. don’t be desperate for a job, aspire for a job with a smile.
There you go! It is easy to land yourself in a Software Job, after the Engineering roller coaster, through the recruitment process.
There one last piece of important advice: Grades don’t matter much. If you can pass the requisite minimum percentage of 60% in your engineering and 70% in your PU then it’s easy. For people who do not satisfy the criteria, do not worry, there are many software companies that go easy on the marks!
