Let me make a bold statement to start this show.
If you are not studying Computer Science degree in the U.S.A. get ready for a wild ride when it comes to job search.
Today’s show is all about job search, job opportunities and what is really happening when it comes to finding a job as n F1 Visa student. And what can you do about finding a job and what others are going through when it comes the job search.
Here’s a comment from Lokesh:
I am Lokesh. I recently came to USA for M.S. Mechanical in Wayne State University. I am totally confused with scenario here. I am confused whether to stay in the U.S.A. or go back to India. I am confused whether I can get a job here or studying in USA is waste of money. I have no work experience in India; but studied training program in AutoCAD, Catia, ProE and ANSYS. Please help me out from this confusion.
It’s not the first time a student has posted such comment. So, I took his comment as a base topic for today’s episode and explained on that.
Job Opportunites for Non-CS Graduates
Show Notes and Resources:
- Job Search is difficult for CS and Non-CS Graduates.
- Your Effort = Create Job Opportunities
- Companies don’t line up to recruit students via Campus Placements.
- Applying for 100’s of jobs via online portal doesn’t give you results.
- That’s not the only job search method that’s available to find full-time jobs.
