Industry Association

STEPS is introducing a unique and innovative concept in IT Training arena of Industry Association. The actual need for any student completing his or her academic course is to get a good job in their field of study and build up a good career. But, in the highly competitive IT environment of today, it becomes difficult for them to secure a job matching to their interests and skills. There are two major reasons contributing to this troublesome situation.

The first reason is that the IT boom happened after the Y2K concern had attracted more number of students to take specialization in IT while choosing their academic course. This lately ended up in a huge number of job applicants being released to the job market towards the end of each academic year and most of them failing to secure a good job. The second reason is that most of the top-rated IT companies prefer to employ experienced or skilled IT professionals as a part of cost reduction to cut short their budget for training and development. This made it very difficult for fresh students to find an opportunity.

Alternate Options for a Fresher

It now becomes essential for the IT aspirants, especially the fresher graduates to take and extra step in order to overcome this challenge and kick-start their career. To achieve this goal, education consultants and IT gurus suggest the option of finishing school IT training or an IT specialization training to be undergone by the fresher. What noted as the drawback of academic courses is that it provides the basic knowledge about a myriad of topics, but no in-depth knowledge or application skills about any particular IT technologies.

A professional technical graduate after receiving a course completion certificate can apply only for general fresher level openings now. They cannot apply for or usually get rejected for specific IT positions like that of a Java Developer, Software Tester, Network or System Administrator etc. Here comes the importance of taking an IT specialization training for you to become a knowledgeable, skilled, and moreover hands-on experienced IT professional. After gaining such an expertise, you can add this to your profile in order to get through the first hurdle of resume screening and receiving an interview call. Then if you can prove your technical knowledge and skill during the interview and technical screening, it can make your dream come true to secure a dignified IT job.

However, you need to be very careful and judicious while making such a move. The major mistake many students make while searching for IT training is that they tend to fall in for the colorful advertisements or irresistible offers by the institutes. But, if the quality of training you receive is of substandard, it will help you in no way to increase the profile value as an IT career aspirant. Conventionally, most of the training institutes follow the method of classroom training just as an extension of the academics. Students do not get any practical exposure to know how the IT industry is functioning and what are the requirements and challenges to be met at a real-time working environment. There is no point in just learning programming theoretically and get a certification. Similarly, it is of no use if you learn technical administration by use of simulators. It is more like learning the theory of “how to ride a bicycle” and writing the certification test, without even seeing a bicycle.
