This is for students/professionals who are looking to make a career in programming/computer-science/software-development and have questions like -
- How to start?
- What fields can I get into?
- What things should I do to get into xyz?
- Am I on right track?
- How to prepare for interviews?
..etc Or any other questions.
Why I am doing this?
In India, lakhs of engineers graduate everyear and only a handful of engineers secure a good engineering job. https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/jobs/only-6-of-those-passing-out-of-indias-engineering-colleges-are-fit-for-a-job/articleshow/64446292.cms
I can’t change the above completely but I want to focus on those who are genuinely interested in making a career in this field but lack good mentorship and connect with the current industry.
In my initial years of college, one thing that I had trouble with was getting good guidance. I didn’t even know in what direction should I prepare myself. With a lot of trial and error, I met with some really good people and discovered a lot of different things. This helped me to set a target and prepare for it. And this is a very common state among students in India.
There are many reasons for this state - outdated curriculum, lack of good teachers, mindset, unauthorized colleges etc. It’s hard to change all of this. But one can start small, so this is my attempt to guide/mentor the willing ones in the right direction.
IMO, Good guidance at the right time can do wonders. Getting guidance shouldn’t be hard.
Fill up this form and then we can have a call. I’ll probably try to connect to everyone who will fill up the form but it may take up some time as it is hard to take time off with a full-time job. So be patient :)
