well, i have a question regarding my career.
i m going to complete my mca (master in computer application) in next 6 months(up to 5th semester, 6th is industrial training).
but as my academics are not good so probably i will not be able to get any good job in any mnc because they have their own criteria, but i want to work as a software developer in any good mnc, what i can do now?
should i do some other training or courses after my mca??

This might sound brutal, but if you could not attain a good academic record* which would land you your dream job,in 5 semesters (2.5 years?) what makes you think some training/certification is going to help?

Punit but once you get the good experience then no one cares about your academic profile even it's worst. But you should technically good. All the best don't worry much about this.

ocjp 6 — Feeding a person with food is a great thing in this world. Feeding the same person by transferring the knowledge is far more better thing. The reason is the amount of satisfaction which we get through food is of only one minute or two. But the satisfaction which we can get through the knowledge is of life long.

Companies care less about grades after you have a year or two experience. I wouldn't worry about getting into a big company right away. Smaller companies tend to be more interested in knowledge/things you did on your own than grades. After two years, that first job overshadows everything else.

I dont think companies have entry criteria that mention what your score should have been in the 10th or 12th (read that as high school). Its too early to worry about someone not calling you for an interview when you have not finished your course as yet. Try to research the criteria chosen by the company to pick your seniors. Talk to them about their interview experiences and what their entry tests were like. That should tell you if you need to be anxious to begin with.

If you find gaps from that process, find ways to fill them.

Yeah right, if you have more experience grades doesn't matter, did you know that not all student who had an excellent award find a good job. Companies are looking for applicant with high experience.
