Hi, I am new to these BBs. I am not sure if this is the right forum to post my question . I am in my final year of MCA in Hyderabad, India and I'll complete it by May 2002. I don't have a job as of now and don't see any prospects of findng one in the near future. I want to have advice from u gurus as to what to now,....should I take courses or take certifications or go for Masters in Cs to US?? I have 2 yeras part time work experienece working with C, Vb and Oracle. I studied Java, Cobol, C++, UNIX etc in school during MCA. Which courses or certifications would be good for me to get me a junior level s/w job after my school in May?? If u guys know of any companies recruting people, I very much apprecaite if u can send me contact Info. I am sorry for the lenghty post, but I am really clueless... Thanks in advance, Krishna [ March 02, 2002: Message edited by: Krishna Reddy ]
Krishna, Everybody is clueless in this present job market buddy. As for entry-level jobs, atleast here in US i think its a remote possibility now. I was wondering how is the job market in India. I heard a lot many companies are hiring now, as much of development work is being out-sourced to India on account of lower cost. Doing a MS is definetly a good option....if not now in another 2 yrs when the market stabilizes u stand a real good chance. Rajesh

I'm not sure I understand all of the complexities of coming to the United States from India to pursue a M.S. in Computer Science. If you have the credentials to go to a big-time graduate school you should take advantage of it. U.S. News and World Report doesn't have a specific ranking for CS Graduate Schools, but the Computer Engineering ranking is a list of great schools for research oriented MSCS people. US News & World Report Rankings - Grad School - Computer Engineering If you have a way to finance a MSCS it is a very good investment in yourself. Good Luck
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
