Thoughts of a fresh graduate in the IT field
The time is tough for freshers. Even experienced professionals in many major companies know they are sitting under the legendary ‘sword of damocles’.
After the Y2K we know that these recessions are not permanent. What have gone down will come up again, like the sine wave. In the meantime, it is best to spend your time in knowledge acquisition. Learn everything that you can, now, so that when the field gets back to normal, we all will have a good chance to get along.
One sure assurance about this field of comuting is that, after all these years of internet and computers, there will be no going back to the days of manual labour. As long as computers have demand, IT field will stand.
Struggling in the first steps to start a career will provide emotional temperament. Taking steps one by one, climbing up slowly the steps of success, falls in the future will not be fatal.
The song that motivates me now is ‘Hum honge kamyaab ek din’. Translation: “We shall overcome, one day’. 🙂
