Software companies will test you on your coding skills and if you know good coding, they will hire you

August 26, 2017

TV Mohandas Pai, ex Director of Infosys says

"My advice to all the people in colleges: please learn coding on your own by taking extra classes, because in future most companies will hire you based on your coding knowledge. They will test you on your coding skills and if you know good coding, they will hire you."

He also said,

"IT industry is expected to hire 1.5 lakh to 1.6 lakh people this year."

Infosys is one of the largest software companies in India and the world. So, TV Mohandas Pai would know. And it is important to understand what he is saying and what it means for a student who has completed or is completing B.Tech, M.Tech, MCA, BCA etc.

There are two important messages in his statements

  1. There is no need to worry. IT industry is still hiring lots of software developers, in fact over 1.5 lac developers. So there is no need to worry. There are enough software jobs.
  2. If you want to get into software companies, you must know coding. Knowledge of coding is must. In fact, he says, software companies are not going to catch you raw and give you training for six months and pay for it. Why should they waste their time?

So, what must you.

  1. There is good news that there are lots of jobs.
  2. Become a good coder.

In fact, at Edufect, we are seeing the same trend. Software companies are increasing looking to hire students with good coding skills. And as a Edufect student becomes really good at coding, software companies are wanting to hire Edufect students.

So, what are you waiting for. You know what the industry wants. And it is not difficult to become a coder.
