Target Soft Systems was invited to conduct a two day national level workshop on Android mobile application development organized the department of computer science on 28th march VELTECH UNIVERSITY. The Event was head by Dr.E.Kannan , Registrar VELTECH Dr RR & Dr.SR University.
Speaking at the event, Manikandan highlighted some of the choices that fresh graduates have to make while choosing their careers, particularly between established IT services companies and lesser known products or sta rtup companies..
“As young graduates, many of you, after graduating from the College will join the work force matching your skill sets or, some of you could do a start up, or many will go in for higher education.
What every you choose a few thoughts from our side, which I think will be of some help to you while you get into the workforce.
BIG IT services companies
Big name technology Services Company provide on-site opportunities, brand value, higher pay than most startups, instant recognition in society, a very comfortable life – some of the positive side.
On the other hand, there are 10s of 1000s of people similar to you; they are going to train on how to stick to their processes and systems that have been evolved over the 20 years. You will be appreciated for doing what they want you to do, within those standard operating procedures defined by them. Your yearly appraisal, salary increments are based on how religiously you are going to follow their process without you questioning why is it done this way.
The Startups / lesser known product companies…
On the other hand, startup and smaller product companies will be relatively new as compared to established IT services brand. Most of them may not be able to pay as much as a big IT services companies do. You will even have a tough time making people around even pronounce the name of the small start-up or that product company that you will work for. And because you may not be paid as much , you are going to wait a little longer before you hold your own first car, the keys to your own home and that dream smart phone you always wanted.
But, all this said, the interesting side is this.
Startup and Product companies will value your creativity and nurture your thinking (you have to give something to get something). Rather than giving you running tracks beyond which you are not supposed to even think, Startups and product companies will ask you what you want to do, rather than, telling you what they want you to do , you will get a bigger canvas to paint your future, you get a bigger platform to experiment more, and understand the big picture.
The most direct value add in your career will be the opportunity to work with the founders in many of the startups , who will charge you up every day ,unlike the energy drain you will undergo , in big IT services firm, reporting to the 20 yrs experienced manager , whose only priority will be to dump the work on you and reach his home before 6pm beating the evening traffic to play tennis with his son.
I’m not saying what choices you must make; I’m only telling you how to make your choices by understanding what you get from what you choose”.
Manikandan also urged the students to utilize the next two days of Android session to its full potential and successfully uploaded their apps in the play stores.
