It plays a major role during the recruitment process, says top TCS official
“Engineering students should take their final-year project seriously. They should honestly complete the project, preferably on a new topic and get it evaluated. This plays a major role during the recruitment process,” said vice-president and regional global head (Technology Business Unit) of Tata Consultancy Services V. Rajanna. He was here to deliver a lecture at a conclave on higher education organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry and on the sidelines spoke to The Hindu on various aspects that colleges and students need to look into to become employable. When it comes to employable skills, most software companies, including TCS, look at a few parameters such as knowledge in at least two to three core subjects like database management, operating systems and computer programming. This apart, a student should be proficient in at least one or two programming languages such as Java, .Net or Python.

Colleges should make full use of the material that are available online and in open source. – Courtesy
