How to develop a career in Information technology? What course should I do?
As you are planning to develop a career in Information technology, it is recommended that you first acquire basic qualifications required by the companies in the field. Though it has been widely believed that doing a particular hardware/ software course or certification like MCSE, CCNA alone would be enough to pursue a successful career in IT, the ground reality is different. Most of the companies engaged in IT business require basic qualifications like BE in Engineering (not only Computer and Electronics Engineering but actually any Engineering degree will do), M.E, M. Tech, MCA, MBA with System specialisation, and M. Sc. in Computer Science/Electronics/Physics/Mathematics/Statistics. For entry-level jobs, these degrees are enough. Chances of getting a job might be enhanced if along with one of these degrees, you also have qualifications like MCSE, MCSD, CCNA, or training in any other good software course. For jobs other than at entry level, one needs to have work experience in IT technologies. Very few companies recruited people other than those with the above qualifications in the past and with the current downturn in the economy, there will be fewer companies recruiting people other than engineers, MCAs, Science post graduates and MBAs.
So your priority should be choosing a courses among MCA, M. Sc. in Computer Science/Electronics, and MBA.
