    Hi.I think this will not be a right decision as there is no dearth of Software engineers here but surely there will be a dearth of Mechanical engineers if mechanical engg like yourself opt for software companies.

    You surely will have a brighter future in companies that recruit mechanical engg as this is the knowledge which you have gained during your four years of your graduation. Without a doubt the mechanical engineering companies in India are experiencing an All time Boom and you definitely will have better opportunities there.


    Hopefully i have solved your query and Best of luck for your future.Thanks

    dear aspirants ,

    Depends your interest which field is your more interest and if you already mechnical engineer so

    If you choose same field is a good for job and softwer fields are technical fields so you choose only

    Your choice if you work hard in softwer company as you wish both field are good so you definalty

    go another field no problem.If few month later you get offer letter is good congrats new jobs .

    mechnical field is a good scope and softewer demands market very huge so dont worry you get a

    job softwer field without tension and you make future bright in this field.

    HI,

    If you want to continue your career in IT , then go for it.
    Other than that if you have got any job in mechanical background, then go for your branch job.


    If you are comfortable working in IT field,then join otherwise stick to your core related jobs.


    There is no problem for a Mechanical Engineer in IT as you all have minimum knowledge of C, c++ in your 1st yr and 2nd yr.
    So you can manage.Decide wisely.



    HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL!!!!!
    GOOD LUCK!!

    Dear Aspirant,

    Mechenical is a core branch.

    It is required every where.

    To my mind you will have better future in PSU & or in IES.

    You can do one thing.

    Join the job in your selected software company without signing the bond paper or if the bond is of one year,you can sign it.

    See the situation & take decision.

    But It is not advisable to sign bond of two & more than two years.

    Carrier also depends upon the level of software company.


    Best of luck.

    Hi friend,

    Its really good that you have got good opportunity in a software company.


    working in software company is also good, there you have good work environment, good infrastructure.

    But if you are good at your studies i.e, if you have got good percentage in your B.E and have good subject knowledge and if you have got interest and love towards your group then you can leave the software job.

    As you are a mechanical engineer and studied the subject for 4 years and all of a sudden you are into software job where you dont know anything and it would be new to you.

    You have to work very hard there in order to excel in the software industry, the work will be very much and the days will be hectic.

    If you really love to work in software company then you can definitely join it, but if you are joining just to earn the salary then its very bad decision.

    if you have love towards mechanical engineering and want to enjoy it in depth then do not leave the mechanical field.


    all the best

    thanking you.

    Hi,

    It is great that you have got placed in the campus interview for a software company.

    If the job is of your kind and according your likes , then it is the best job.

    It is your decision whether you want to join this job or not.

    And there are so many mechanical engineering jobs awaiting for you , you can also go for them.

    If your interest lies in mechanical field then you should go for such jobs only.

    If you have opted for this job thinking that you will not get another job then you are wrong.

    You will surely get best job in government sectors also.

    So, take the right decision.

    good luck
