You did the mentoring for me to get the knowledge on technical as well as nontechnical aspects of a Software job.you told me to go through some advanced technical stuffs which really helped me to clear the interviews, you told me to take some presentations/discussions on technical stuffs to improvise my knowledge as well as communication skills.you draw the attention to my activities.you gave lot of talks on personality development, attitude and decision making which are very critical to corporate environment.your level of interest in helping me get a job,  to involve myself more effectively in preparation thats what helped me get results.

-------------
This mentoring programme is not like spoon feeding you technical knowledge. If you are allowed to join the mentoring you are supposed to work hard
- In learning lot of technology oriented topics including - Processes of Software companies/IT jobs, Lot of Software job terminologies , Storage Technology, Virtualization Technology(VMware), Operating System(Linux), Perl(Scripting)
- Its more of a guideline based mentoring where you as a job seeker as expected to put more effort,time to learn above technical areas & be able to present them
- There will be lot of assignments in terms of learning, being able to speak about them, mock interviews, group discussions,presentation contests etc
- If you are someone who is just looking for training but not willing to work from your side then this may not be for you
- Imagine if you get a job in IT you are supposed to learn things & get the work done - its almost like that in here - You are supposed to learn technical topics & you are supposed talk about them, present on top of that knowledge, discuss & take it forward in terms of implementing what you learned in terms of your work
- There will be less teaching from someone else to you & more of you learning & being able to work on those complex technical areas
- It may sound like someone is asking you to do a lot but yes there will be some help & support from others
- Those who've learned already may be sharing their knowledge - which helps you get the initial startup
- This is a completely different way of mentoring which is almost trying to simulate a real IT work environment in many aspects
People wont be able to get a complete idea about it unless they experience it

People can get a lot of technical materials through google search & download it easily but still they dont learn or build good knowledge on them due to lack of constant motivation,support to push oneself in their learning,constant feedback based on how someone is progressing, team support in terms of presentations,group discussions,mock interviews these are something which people are not getting anywhere else with respect to getting a software job. This is what you get in this mentoring. This is NOT like normal technical training - this is more like you working in a software company. YOU DONT need to travel to any location for this. Since this mentoring is mostly online or through phone. This is like you are working with a virtual team it is almost like you are part of a virtual software company.
But let it be clear YOU ARE NOT BEING HIRED TO WORK - you are being mentored so you gain the knowledge to work . This is mentoring this is NOT a salaried job. Focus will be more on you learning technical aspects,getting to know your progress,listening to you explaining what you learned,giving you feedback,giving you a team of which you will be a part , a team which helps you participate in group discussions on technical topics,giving presentations on technical topics , facing mock interviews . We can go on & on & on but take initiatives & email & write in detail about yourself to see if you get to experience it first hand.

If you want to get some initial preview you may want to attend some of the webinars raj is conducting

But only those who are meeting some criteria are allowed to attend these webinar
- Email your existing resume & write in detail about your career plans,career expectations, what you've done so far in that direction to raj6000s@gmail.com

You may be lucky enough to attend the webinars soon . This definitely is not for the lazy guys. Be an action taker email & explain your situation clearly. Make sure to write all the details asked above. Please read this blogspot atleast 2 to 3 times so that you dont miss some of the details.

What really makes you achieve your Career Goals

If you are really serious about achieving your Career Goals :

Then you need a mentor or you need a friend/family/relative who is willing to give you quite a lot of time

Here is what is the biggest obstacle for anyone who is struggling to achieve something

People CAN NOT push themself towards hard goals
They need someone - someone who is as committed to help them as they are to achieve that goal.

So it has to be a mentor or a friend who does similar role.

You need someone who almost everyday listens to what you are doing
- Gives you feedback on what you are doing
- Helps you have a better roadmap to achieve your Goals
- Helps you have an accountability mechanism to monitor your progress
- Helps to check you at several milestones on how much you achieved
- Gives you necessary advice when you are stuck
- Asks you are you stuck due to anyting & listens to all that stuff you have to say which you badly wanted to share with someone
- Pushes you knowing your Limits
- Helps you extend your limits to increase your ability to cope with bigger responsibilities

Lot of times people dont even get any body to listen to them - let alone give them positive affirmative messages. People dont even get someone who believes them . Its a hard lonely path for many who are trying to get a Job, Build their career or take care of their responsibilties.

My friend raj6000s@gmail.com is willing to do that for some - some chosen ones

But if you are a hardworking, dedicated, serious job seeker email him & let him know more about you

I am glad there is someone who is willing to take time for people who badly need support

You are Hired Whats your Best Skillset Whats your area of Passion

How many of you wish you get a job in an area you are very passionate about.

Write which area you are very passionate to work on & email about it to below email id.
May be if they like what you are interested in they may give you a chance.

Email raj6000s@gmail.com & write about it . He is my friend & he is in need of some good number of skilled people in several areas.

MAKE SURE to email your resume & also mention what is your current salary , expected salary, interested to work full time/part time , any other things you want to discuss why dont you put it in the email in the first place (to reduce the time it takes for them to take a decision on shortlisting you for a call/conversation)

If you are a highly skilled programmer on
RUBY, PYTHON, IOS(app development), ANDROID,GAME DEVELOpMENT

If you are a very talented graphic designer / artist

If you are very good in writing artices (content development)

If you are experienced with lot of web development , web site management, wordpress administration , blog fine tuning, SEO , Social Media Management


Please make sure to write as much details as possible about your previous experience or previous work/assignments you’ve completed - if you can share the links (if they are on the web) or send snapshots or documents/presentation files about your previous work that will be great.

Getting Job is Easy Compared to Keeping the Job and Growing in Your Career

Getting Job is Easy Compared to Keeping the Job and Growing in Your Career

Yes you will realise this soon if you are still trying to get a job. I agree effort & time it takes to get a job is really huge but still when you have a job then the required efforts & work is much much more.

Its not easy to do well in a Software Job - when projects or assignments start
When their complexities grow
When your responsibilities grow
When tasks you are supposed to complete grow
When hardware/software/infrastructure start giving lots of issues
When deadlines & schedules become tight
When you are unable to resolve issues & pending tasks keep growing
When you get very limited support from your team, management but are supposed to get a lot done
When you have very less time to gain the knowledge required to complete your assignments
When you have a lot of complex technologies to handle
When you are part of a team which is going crazy
When the management - Manager/Lead/Peers start giving lots of confusing tasks/instructions

There are a lot of things which can go wrong & can keep pulling you from meeting the expectations of the job.

I may not have been able to list them all. Why I am writing this is not to scare you - but to prepare you ahead of time - to ask you to work more effectively now, to gain more knowledge now so that you dont have to struggle when you have a job.

Work hard now & Work with you full potential  - though these days when you are struggling to get a new job (or change for a better job) seem like very tough - when you get that job ( I am sure you will definitely get that job sooner or later)
- When you get that job & when you get really busy with everything I've mentioned above then the previous days of you trying to get job - those days will really look like the best time of your career. Enjoy while it lasts. Enjoy this struggle enjoy the hardship & enjoy these experiences - chances are you may not be so lucky to have these days again

I wish you get a good job soon .

Getting IT job needs responsibility and accountability in good amount

When someone is trying to find a Software Job - How can he keep himself focussed
How can he/she keep track of their progress

My friend raj6000s@gmail.com does a lot of mentoring & training on these topics here is what he has shared:

If you really want to make good progress you got to ask yourself these questions. It helps if you try to write down answers for all these questions at the end of everyday.

1. What main career oriented activities you did today

2. What one main thing you learned in depth today

3. Are you really happy with your progress today - Explain

4. What you want to do differently so that you really make good use of the time tomorrow

5. If you are supposed to work 8 to 10 hours in an IT job when you get job - are you ready to work such long hours & still remain productive?

6. Are you focussed on clearing the job interview or you are passing time just learning things & forgetting about them the next day

7. What is your revision plan so that you have better memory of things you learn

8. Are you ready to attend a Job Interview Tomorrow where they may ask all questions on the single topic you mainly focused on learning today

9. What are your tech career expectations - what do you really prefer
Any job which pays OK or a specific job which allows you to work on things you are very interested to work on ( You are passionate about)

10. Why should you be hired for a Software Job in (area of your interest)

If you are serious about your intention to get job then you will take each of the above questions seriously & try your best to answer them honestly

If you keep a daily track of your answers you can easily see which topics you covered in last N number of days and you can also evaluate how well you are preparing.

Getting a Software Job is definitely not of the lazy people

Searching for Software Job How seriously are you working towards that goal

So many people are trying to get a job. Thousands or millions of them are trying for general jobs - some are searching for any decent job. Some are so desperate that they are willing to work on any job if only they get hired and they are paid.

 Its really really depressing to hear the sufferings of many of the job seekers. Society , Parents, Family, Relatives, Friends need to be a lot more supportive for the (Hard working) job seekers.

I see a lot of parents stop supporting their kids after their education and even before the kids get a job. If some of those kids are pursuing some specific jobs like :Software Job or a Web designer Job or a Tech Startup building idea - how can they survive - how long can they lost without support from any body.

 Atleast parents who can afford to support their kids need to be bit more understanding . I saw several instances where parents keep pressurising their kids to get job very very fast and when those kids are unable to get a job in a span of say some months then parents think if they stop sending the money for expenses their kids will somehow get a job . If the kids(job seekers) are really working hard and still not able to land a job then do you think just stopping supporting them financially will really make them get job in some magical way ?  Dont you realise its not just your 1 kid but  - thousands and millions of people are struggling to find any paying legal job.

The competition is fiercest - The mood in the industry is really not so positive - The investors are either pulling their money or cancelling lot of their investment plans - There is a huge crunch of money in the whole system . Its all I feel is the mindset/FEAR issue.

When everyone starts fearing RECESSION - Recession it impacts everyone badly . I am not saying dont save money. What will be the impact on youth if they dont have jobs. What will be the impact on economy if people and families are not able to earn for even their basic necessities like food & shelter. Banks stop giving loans to business, Business stops expanding & hiring , People dont have money so they reduce a lot of consumption of Goods & Services - that impacts the Business. Everyone is in Fear & it becomes more like a herd mentality which is driving the whole economy & the health of the whole nation/world down.

Is it really that hard to create jobs - No compared to changing the mindsets of Those in power, Those who are taking the major decisions & also lot of people who can contribute to the society  - Its not easy to change their fear/mindset . Its easy to create jobs if we just have mindset change.

I personally have seen people with very very little financial savings taking risks & creating employment for others. Entrepreneurs I feel make a big change if only they get atleast minimal support. I am not just talking about people starting IT startups or technology companies. Its not just technology job creators we want.

Today's economy badly needs those who can create jobs in all other segments - Healthcare, Manufacturing , Small scale industries , Services ....

I hope more people with huge investments come forward & take the risk & create jobs in all other segments

I am surprised to see IT startups getting million dollar funding - why dont other segments also get similar support from large Investors and Government ?

What makes me sigh  is the Government itself is struggling to pay its bills - It really pains me to see the whole scneario. I wish more people who can really bring in the positive change - take action Soon - Very soon.

How To Get Software Job How to Get into IT company career

A lot of my blog readers ask this question :

How can I get a Software Job .
How can I get an interview call even though I have my resume posted on all major Job sites.
How can I get shortlisted for a IT job interview in this recession.
Are Software Companies still hiring even in this recession.
Is there really a bad recession - is it really impacting IT companies & making them slow down their hiring

Lots of question - bottom line - you are someone who wants to get an IT job or you are someone who are trying to change for a better job.

So some answers from the insights I got from my friends & other acquintances in the IT industry.

Stop worrying about Recession . Dont use it as an excuse . Even if one company is slowing down its hiring due to recession there are plenty of other Job Openings . I know this very well I have been in touch with so many people who keep emailing when their interview is scheduled.
Even now during this tough Economical times there are still decent number of IT jobs. You just need to make sure are you skilled enough are you good enough & reach out with more enthusiasm.

Dont just rely on old methods of getting Software Job Interviews . Due to high competition its better you just done use the old ways :
Old ways :
Thinking that just because you posted your resume on some job sites you can relax - no you may have to do a lot more than just posting to all openings you see online.

Human - Personal - Social Networking - this is the best & ultimate solution to get Job interview opportunities.

I can not emphasise about it any more
A friend of mine is doing a webinar on this topic email raj6000s@gmail.com if you want to join this webinar.

The webinar is about Creative ways of Getting Software Job Interviews.

Its definitely for those who are very active & hard working.

Getting an IT job itself takes a lot of effort & hard work If you are not willing to put it in the first place how can anyone believe that you will work effectively when you get a job.

So the world needs active & smart working (hard working + smart thinking) people - IT industry today needs people who think & act in a much effective /creative way.

More details about this webinar will be posted soon. Since my friend wants to do this webinar for only those who are really really serious about their job hunting he is limiting the number of people who can join.

Still email  - if you are too lazy to email then :) I dont know what else to say

I've asked my friend to cover above questions - questions I mentioned at the top of this blog post. He plans to cover each of the question in each of his webinar. He is planning a webinar series covering several aspects essential in Getting a Software Job.
