    Doing extra course adds value to our resume as fresher or it is not needed to do extra course and waste time?

    I am doing 2nd year B.Tech and I want to know if it is really necessary to do extra add on course to add it in our resume for getting the job in final year? or it is not needed to do extra course and waste time instead we can invest it for interview preparation? Can you provide me right details about this.

    It depends on your branch of engineering.I would suggest you to go for extra add on course related to your field as it definitely adds to your resume and gives
    you an edge over other candidates.
    You can prepare for your interviews in the final year,that is not a big deal.But since you have 2 more years you should go for some internship or add on courses for your own benefit.

    Hi friend
    *As you mentioned that you are a b.tech student and presently in secônd year. So *you must be concentrate on current course that you are in.
    *This time extra course will infected your mind.
    *But you can manage then you do it in summer session after completion the exam.
    *You should Complete all necessary paperwork and permission forms to register.
    *Some colleges require permission from the instructor, dean or academic adviser to take courses outside of your major.
    *Ask if you can complete this paperwork before the registration period to lessen the chance that the class will fill up.
    It will very helpful in time of a getting a good job.
    Best of luck.

    Hello friend,

    Doing extra courses helps you a lot to learn new things and will gain your knowledge so there is no disadvantage of doing extra courses

    If you are an other department student for example you are an electronic student and you have did some courses related to java or php

    which are highely preferable for computer science students then it will be good for you to have more job opportunities in future

    But adding irrelevant things in Resume may wont create good impression but do add good courses and certificates with your resume

    And by doing extra courses will make you more prepared in terms of Interview session so dont worry Do whatever courses you like related to your field

    Best of luck!

    I would suggest you to do extra courses while you have time. Because you dont find time in your final year. First fix your dream companies then just know the specialisations of that company. For example if you need to get hired in a design based company then learn some designing courses. Dont just learn for the sake of the certificate. Practise the course well. If you put it on your resume then they will ask about the course. Be prepared to answer them if you put it in your resume. Hope you are clear now.

    $$ HI $$




    $$ Its a useful one $$

    $_$ If you got a chance of ON Campus then you need not to go for any courses so check this with your college $_$

    $_$
    If the college didn't offer this facility then you should go for OFF Campus and walk-ins in that time your extra courses will help you $_$

    $_$
    Go for the one that matches your stream $_$

    $_$
    There are some valuable course like Mainframe,SAP that will bring you job other than Engineering $_$

    $_$
    The add on course will teach you mush than the things you studied from Engineering $_$

    $_$
    Always go for the certificate course which will help for your career $_$




    $$ Thank you $$

    See as you are an engineering student you must not just opt for an extra course ,you must focus on being practical rather then theoretical.
    Today most important problem for the companies are that they are not getting grads or post grads that have practical skills to work in the industry.
    If you want to add some thing extra in your resume you must try to do practical projects concerned with your field .More you will have the practical knowledge more your chance of getting a good job will increase.You can apply for short term projects at various places like DRDO etc. Or you can work on a project in your own college.Try to do as much projects as possible .

    Hi,

    Doing a course definitely makes your resume qualitative and competitive .

    Knowing things is always good than without knowing anything.

    Its very important to be knowledgeable for getting a job.But at the same time i suggest you to be strong in your basics which you can master yourself when your in college.

    For finding a job if your strong in aptitude and basics of technical knowledge its more than enough.

    And good communication skill is very important to get job.You can develop your communication skill when your in college.

    After you get a job to prove yourself skilled you need to do certifications and courses to market yourself in the current industry.

    Hi friend,


    Now recession has started . Companies has started reducing the numbers of recruitment .

    Only if you show excellence , stand distinct among others , you can grab the opportunity

    For such an opportunity to happen , pursuing course , completing certifications is the right choice

    Look out for good training centres and do courses like JAVA,ORACLE,Mainframe

    Write certification exams , it will be a added advantage for you to get selected

    Companies will expect candidates with technical background strong

    Certifications are also expected mostly

    So prepare well and complete certifications as soon as possible



    Thanks !!!!

    Hi. Doing Add-on courses is an integral part and forms a distinguishing factor of your resume.When you appear for your interviews all the candidates of your branch would have studied the same subjects as you but what would make you stand out are these Additional courses.

    These 4 years of your graduation are the most important years of your development where you have to develop professional skills apart from just learning the theoretical stuff.

    You should join as many communities in your college as possible and be closely related in their functioning.That will help you develop a edge over the others.

    Learning computer languages like C, Java as an add on course will be highly beneficial.

    Learning a Foreign language from a reputed institute will also add value to your resume.

    Best of luck for your future . Thanks

    It is always beneficial to do some extra efforts for your work , it adds some qualities in you and it will make you different from others. If you want to make your resume strong then do some extra courses, it is not a time wasting thing rather it is a time investing thing. You must remember one thing that you will not get job only on the basis of this extra courses , if you have done this courses them company will surely expects many things from you so do this courses with full interests and dedication. As you know knowledge is never going to be wasteful for you it will only add something in you. Interview preparations can be done by yourself because you yourself is the best teacher and no can teach you as you can teach yourself . So, don't divert you mind anywhere just do whatever you have planned to do for your future.

    It depends on your branch of engineering. i might recommend you to travel for further add on track associated with your field because it positively adds to your resume and offers
    you a footing over different candidates.
    you'll be able to inure your interviews within the final year, that's not a giant deal. however since you have got two additional years you ought to opt for some billet or add on courses for your own profit.

    extra course simply create your resume additional valuable than others...
    everybody has degree however few square measure having further information thus during this case company can offer the priority of additional course person if you opt for off field...
    in field you furthermore mght will apply... however if you're not willing to try and do this then you only think about your degree thus you'll be able to sensible job through your field...

    Doing further courses helps you lots to be told new things and can gain your information thus there's no disadvantage of doing further courses

    If you're associate degree different department student {for example|for instance|as associate degree example} you're an electronic student and you have got did some courses associated with java or php

    that square measure extremely preferred for technology students then it'll be sensible for you to own additional job opportunities in future

    however adding unsuitable things in Resume could wont produce sensible impression however do add sensible courses and certificates together with your resume

    And by doing further courses can cause you to additional ready in terms of Interview session thus don抰 worry Do no matter courses you prefer associated with your field.

    Re: Doing extra course adds value to our resume as fresher or it is not needed to do extra course and waste time?

    It is always an added advantage for any candidate of doing extra courses or certifications of value added and putting in the resume. Doing certifications and if you have don't have any knowledge of the course what you have done, then there is no use of it.

    Let me tell you when these certifications are going to play a key role.

    If two candidates have qualified for the final round and in the final round both the candidates have performed well, then the candidate who is having value added certification course will get job.

    If you attend for the selection procedure of a job which is completely different from the field in which you have done your certification, then the certification or course what you have done will not given good preference.

    So, I suggest you to first decide upon the job in which you are interested to join.

    Once you decided upon the job in which you want to job, know the courses or certifications which are value added for you in that field.

    Try to finish of as many value ads as you can.

    Don't think its waste of time of doing certifications or value added courses.

    Knowledge is the one of the thing which we can not buy with the money.

    You don't need to invest anything for Interview preparation.

    Try to be strong enough in your academics.

    Improve your communication skills.

    Put your best efforts and definitely you will get a good Job.

    Wish you all the best.

    Re: Doing extra course adds value to our resume as fresher or it is not needed to do extra course and waste time?

    hi friend,

    1. IT MAINLY DEPENDS ON THE BRANCH OF ENGINEERING THAT YOU HAVE CHOOSE.

    2. IF YOU ARE FROM THE IT BACKGROUND THEN YOU CAN GO FOR THE ADDITIONAL COURSES.

    3. BUT IF YOU ARE FROM CORE BACKGROUND THEN ADDITIONAL COURSES ARE NOT REQUIRED.

    4. BUT IF YOU ARE FROM IT BACKGROUND THEN YOU DEFINITELY NEED TO LEARN THE COURSES BECAUSE MANY OF THE COMPANIES ARE LOOKING FOR THE STUDENTS WHO HAVE PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE REGARDING WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO WORK ON.

    5.MANY OF THE COMPANIES ARE NOT IN A MOOD TO PROVIDE THE TRAINING TO THEIR EMPLOYEES WHO JOINED THE COMPANY AS FRESHERS.

    6. THEY ARE LOOKING FOR THE STUDENTS WHO ALREADY HAVE A GRIP ON THE SUBJECT OR THE COURSES.

    7. THEY WOULD JUST PROVIDE YOU A TRAINING FOR 1-2 MONTHS AND THEN THEY WOULD MAKE YOU SIT ON THE PROJECT.

    8. IF YOU HAVEN'T GOT ENOUGH KNOWLEDGE ON THE COURSE THEN YOU WOULD BE IN TROUBLE, AS THERE WOULD BE NO ONE WHO WOULD MAKE YOU TEACH THE COURSE.

    9. IF YOU ARE WELL VERSATILE WITH THE COURSE THEN YOU WOULD DEFINITELY GET THE JOB IN A EASE MANNER.

    10. IF YOU ARE DONE WITH THE COURSE THEN YOU WOULD BE ONE STEP FORWARD TO OTHER WHO HAVE COME FOR THE INTERVIEW, THERE WOULD BE MORE CHANCES FOR YOU TO GET SELECTED THAN OTHERS.


    SO, I WOULD SUGGEST YOU TO LEARN THE COURSES IN ORDER TO MAKE YOURSELF CONFIDENT ENOUGH TO FACE ANY CONSEQUENCES.

    ALL THE BEST.


    THANKING YOU...

    Yes doing extra course definitely adds value to your resume. But don't waste your valuable time first concentrate on your studies. If you interested then go for course which is related to your branch.
    In final year you can prepare for interviews. One year is enough for interview preparation.

    Definitely doing course will have an edge over others.It will adds weight to your resume.

    Re: Doing extra course adds value to our resume as fresher or it is not needed to do extra course and waste time?

    Hi ..Doing extra course and extra activities especially those related with your field certainly adds value to your resume..And this is certainly important if you want an edge over the other students in your job interview..Your resume is the one which will initially speak on your behalf and thus all your past achievements to the interviewer..If you have these extra activities added then your first impression on the interviewer is certainly going to be great and will certainly help you in getting good points in the interview..Other than that its certainly your performance in the interview which will matter..

    So doing extra course is certainly not a wate of time..It doesnt pay to have only bookish knowledge and these extra courses will certainly take you a step further..You can do extra courses like some computer language like c, c++, java,dotnet etc.. Or if you are interested you can indulge yourself in learning a foreign language..Also do various extra activities in your college like joining some clubs or organization which will greatly help you in building up a good resume..Along with these things you prepare for your interview as well which is equally important..Devote more time and work hard.

    Good luck..Thanks

    Doing extra course related to your academic profile is always beneficial. Even it's said that learning anything is always helpful anywhere anytime in the life. You must note that extra course must match with the job you are applying for, so that you have advantage. When you go for an interview, it's quite obvious that every candidates would be having b.tech degree like you, but the possibility of having extra course certificate rare which increases your chances of selection. In an interview well preparation is also necessary, so it's good if you allocate proper time for that also. And also improve your communication skills.

    Hello friend,
    Doing extra is value added to your resume because that will catch the interviewer attention that apart from your normal study you managed your time and accuried knowledge in those field and if those qualities are professional and will be helpful for company then its worth getting the job.
    second thing what ever you learn extra if it wont get you one job then definitely it will get you the other so dont loose hope .second thing sfter getting selected to any company you will be put to regorous trainning where you may not get extra time to study and these course will help you there.

    Thank you.

    Doing extra course is always a value added thing.

    It will increase the content on your resume.

    It will increase your knowledge level.

    It makes you different from other fresher who did not do any certifications in the selection procedure.

    It may fetch you promotion so early.

    This many advantages are there of doing extra course.

    But do that extra course in the field which you are going on currently.

    Don't think its waste of time.

    Each and every course will fetch you some benefits.

    It is always an added advantage for you to having some extra certification.

    Definitely, you will be given preference in the Interview if you are having some extra qualification.

    So, if you are interested, try to complete that certification.

    You can improve your knowledge also with that.

    all the best

    hello dear,
    Nice to know that you are so sincere about your carrier.
    Friend I feel that subject knowledge is the base in placement. Even if you have so many certificate but you are not up to mark in your subject than you will not get good salary.
    But if possible try to participate in other activities and get certificate and try to improve your communication skill and have complete mastery over your subject.
    Best of luck friend.
