Today I got to present on a “Career Guidance” event organized by Rotary Club of Central Madras and Vidya Mandir Senior Secondary School. Audience were parents and students of Class X and XII students of Vidya Mandir School in Chennai. Vidya Mandir is one of the prestigious education institutions in the country and I was happy to be invited for the event.
I didn’t want to take the usual approach of listing all possible jobs in IT and the education needs to achieve them. Instead I went to dispell the various myths associated with a career in IT (especially in India) and then elaborated on the “not so obvious” needs of the IT industry.
You can download the presentation Career Opportunities in Indian IT Industry.ppt (250.5 KB) I used today.
