I have done B. Tech in (IT). Out of Human Resource, Marketing, Finance and Global Business specializations, which one would be the best for me?
Primarily, the best in getting on to a truly satisfying career track can happen if one’s aptitude aptly aligns with the ‘fire in the belly’ and consequently the goal one sets for him/herself. Of course, availability of job opportunities matching with one’s chosen career path, at the time when one enters the job market is important for early success. Swings in economic development and the resulting nature of positions becoming available or what the job market throws up at any given time thus plays a significant part in career building. Circumstantial lack of opportunities matching one’s aptitude and the chosen goal at certain points of time may compel the individual to take a short time planned detour. However, one who is definitive about converging back to his/her focally set goal sees this as a learning opportunity of an additional career dimension and naturally moves back to the preset career path and again tries to become a winner in his/her chosen career segment. While these factors normally constitute the core elemental of a winning situation, there are many other dimensions that matter for success. Key amongst them relate to the various dimensions of the aspirant’s personality on the one hand and the job environment prevailing at the particular point of time and many others. Obviously, what will be the exact situation 2 years hence cannot be quantified and predicted.
With the above in the background and your academic achievements in Engineering, it may be better, frm your indicated choices that you develop a career with Marketing as a specialization. Future job availability indications reflect large job opportunities in IT marketing field that also befits your IT background. Finance is suitable for those students who are frm commerce background. As you are aware that we offer Dual Specialization, you have the option of choosing either HR & Marketing or Global Business & Marketing.
Marketing with Global Business will widen your horizon of learning and you will get exposure to the business activities taking place globally. This will give you good opportunities to go abroad.
If your inclination is not towards Global Business programme, you can choose Marketing with HR as your IT background in B.Tech will help you a lot in HR field. This field is good frm your placement point of view too. As per the recent trend, training and recruitment in IT field is nearly 70% out of total HR functions. With your IT knowledge and background, this option could give you better opportunities.
Summarizing, we would suggest that your good choice may be either Marketing & HR or Marketing & Global Business depending upon your inner feelings and interest which should drive you to become the winner in life.
