- Finding A Job from B.Tech Colleges
B.Tech candidates can always opt for college placements. Good engineering institutes are always looking for more skilled and talented teaching staff. Campus placement can help you get the job without having to give much effort. And needless to say, college placements offer a good hefty amount of salary. So keep your resume checked and up-to-date; maintain a good score in your subject, and start gaining knowledge from your internship and your B.Tech project .
Participate in extracurricular activities. Preparing for group discussion and conducting some research can also help you to get the job quickly.
- Go for Government Job
This might be one of the most common options for undergraduate B.Tech students. Civil service jobs are thought to be one of the most secure jobs. They come with many benefits and a good salary. This is why many students prefer to take the civil services entrance exam. The UPSC has three engineering options, civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering. And after getting a good score in those exams, you can apply for positions such as IAS, IPS, or IFS. However, these are some of the toughest exams. The exams are conducted in three stages, having two written tests and one personality test.
- Studying MBA
You can always take Management courses since they are very popular career options. Many companies, upon hiring, look for candidates who have knowledge in both technology and Management. So an MBA degree in your CV will look better and help you to get your dream job. You need to take the CAT exam (Common Aptitude Test) to get admission to the best management colleges. There are many prestigious MBA colleges and universities in India from where you can get your MBA certificate.
- Join Indian Military
Just like civil services, Indian military jobs also are one of the most secure jobs. And if you are patriotic and want to serve your nation, you can always apply in the Indian Army, Navy, or in IAF. And if you are thinking about what an engineer can do in the military? Then you are so wrong. All the military task forces have a highly skilled technical department to help those who are risking their lives in the field. But for that, you have to sit through the University Entry Scheme (UES), Air Force Common Admission Test (AFCAT), or Short Service Commission (SSC) Entrance Test after B.Tech to enter this field.
- Become an Entrepreneur
Opening up your own business is always a good idea. Nowadays, you don’t have to be from a commerce background to open a business. If you already have a good business plan, then becoming an entrepreneur can be a good career option. There are many institutes that also offer diploma courses in entrepreneurship. The internet has become one of the biggest platforms where you can show your entrepreneurship.
- Private Sector Jobs
B.tech is a more technical field. And IT companies are always eager to hire more technical skilled professionals. Big companies like Amazon, Flipkart, Apple, and Google are always looking for candidates who can meet their criteria. While it is true you can get your dream job from campus placement; you can always go and look outside for a good private job. However, our advice would be to do some future-oriented and career-based courses before you go look for jobs in the private sector. If you have certificates in courses such as data science, robotics, blockchain designing, UX designing, etc., you will have more options to choose from.
It’s better to assess and evaluate your personal skills and expertises before you go into the real world. The period after you Finish College is the best time to develop more skills and knowledge to groom yourself better.
