I am CSE undergrad currently studying in 2nd year. I have maintained high GPA till now, but I haven’t done anything extra other than regular college subjects, so I wanted to know where can I start.
I wanted to get placed in core CS company through campus placements, so it would be great if you suggest me what to do for same. I have strong foundation in C++, won’ that be enough.
I am not a real fan of programming (although I do it fine) so can you tell me that whether strong programming skills is the only way through which I can get placed in core companies or there are ways other than strong programming skills that i can land up in core company.
Also, can you suggest me to how to start my career in analytics from ground whilst I pursue my B.tech.
If you want to get placed in a Core CS branch, then you have to know any one high level language very efficiently. According to you, you have a strong C++ foundation , so keep up with that. Try brushing it every now and then. It should be like, when the interviewer of say, snapdeal, asks you to write a big code , you should be able to write it. they would sit in front of you looking at your face for 30-40 mins till you write the whole code!!
Some companies usually prefer people who know java, java script and J2EE. So try learning these, or even if you don’t doesn’t matter much.
I am telling you these so that you can be unbeatable.
OR, you could do internship in a good company requiring programming skills like C++. Working on the battle field would definitely catch the recruiter’s eyes! 😉
P.S. – You have to have a very strong base in your programming skills.
You can bag a job through college placements only by having a good academic record throughout along with some internships if available. If not, then you can do short-term online courses related to programming or data analytics so that you get knowledge and build your portfolio,
Being a computer science student you should polish your programming skills by taking up extra classes or courses.
