There are many peoples and fresh students of bscs asked me how to start career in software houses, because it’s difficult to join software house without any experience, and no reference.
So today I’m going to Share my experience about joining software houses as a software developer (php developer, dot Net Developer, or java developer), And tell you the exact path as I became a developer.
First of all i would like to say that if you are a talented and hardworking person than this field is for you. i mean in Pakistan there is just one sector which is working under merit and that is information technology, reference don’t works for long time. so keep your mind clean about references (sifarish) and make ready yourself to learn technology every day or every second.
The First question you have to solve is in which technology you want to start your career? It can be web development (in php, asp, jsp or any other), desktop development or mobile development (android, iPhone etc). Once you decided a technology, Get your training in relevant technology. I will recommend online training from Lynda.com because you will not need to pay any institute, and you will not need to go and attend classes( in my opinion wasting of time).
Just turn on your computer and watch the lectures sequentially as you watch horror movies. The institute like peak solutions or any other will never teach you the inner concepts due to shortage of time (in 3 months diploma). when i started i got training from Lynda.com in php, i remember it was php mysql essential training. You will be thinking that Lynda.com is a paid site then how can we download training from this site. And the answer is there are many forums from where you can get these training free of cost. or just enter the name of the training in comment.
Complete a small project like address book, or any application which involves database interaction. Mention your project in your resume and logon to rozee.pk or mustaqbil.com and apply for internships available, or Apply directly to Software houses by their email addresses.
