IT Careers

Many IT students/professionals generally have a feeling, that as a computer science or IT student their job can be only programming, but programming is a tool for proposing the solution to a problem. Primarily what is required is to solve the problem. The problems may be of any kind related to security, data storage & retrieval, sharing of data anywhere in right time and in right format, Mining the the huge amount of data useful for making decisions and giving intelligence to Businesses.

The would-be professionals should be Creators, Designers, Analysts, Team players to develop innovative solutions and testers to test the suggested solutions. They need to control the power of computing to address problems in almost every discipline and industry sector. There are many careers to opt out for. But the Road ahead requires Out of Box thinking since Technologies change on a daily basis in this field. Hot careers revolve around Automation, Process management, Security, Data Science, Internet of Things, IT Infrastructure management and Digital Art etc. Everybody can’t learn everything.

Career Counselling is a Social Venture I launched 2.5 years back at the hands of Padmvibhushan Dr Vijay Kelkar. This aspect is missing in Higher Education as well as Corporate HR (barring few notable exceptions).
