    I really appreciate the fact that you are aware about your future and you are planning to take the right steps right from your degree. It is true that in such a period of recession jobs are very difficult to get. Also one more important thing is that when you will graduate there will be a hundred more students like you who will be graduating. It is the extra curriculars that you have to your credit that will take you a long way. Its all about standing out in a crowd.

    The following courses can help you:
    1. Learning C, JAVA, Advanced Java, HTML, Dot net can be very beneficial for you.
    2. MATLAB is a very good software that is helpful for job purposes.
    3. For designing purposes you need to get knowledge about COREL, Photoshop etc.
    4. You can also learn some foreign language like French, German etc. Doing these courses from a recognized institute will open a whole new world of opportunities for you.

    Other than these courses you should also make sure that you become a member of various societies or clubs in your college. You should try to take up a position of responsibilty in such organizations as they will help you in grooming yourself and at the same time will bring recognition to you. These things are definitely noticed by the recruiters. Today a recruiter wants a multifaceted persdonality. A graduation degree can be obtained by everyone but what makes you different is what you have actually achieved during the course of your graduation. All the best!
