    Re: Is it better to choose a job under networking or software field?

    If you are interested in the networking field, you can go for it. Software testing and other jobs in the software industry require programming skills along with interest. Without job satisfaction, you can't have a successful career in your life.

    So, you can go for networking itself. There are good opportunities for networking professionals in the country. Opportunities are also available outside the country.

    You have a good percentage in the graduation, but to get into networking field, having a specialization certificate is helpful. Internationally approved networking certified provided by red hat, Cisco etc can be obtained through short courses under one year and these certificates improve your chance in getting a good job.

    All the best.

    HI..........
    As you said you are intrested in Networking field then it is better to go with networking rather go with softeware field. Because
    as you say don't have much of programming knowledge will not have a good future career is you some how get a job in software field. so it is better to go with networking rater than go with software.

    In software field you will get job of : System Engineer, software tester, and if you are good in programing then you will become software developer.

    In Networking field you will get a job of Router Engineer, Traffic Manager , some other type of sub engineer.

    Don't worry networking is also a good option to make a good career. As use of too much internet and advancement in network technology there are some very good option of job in this field.

    good luck

    hai,

    you can choose any one of them depending on your interest..but in the coming years networking jobs have a lot of boom..

    in software field your designations may be systems engineer/test engineer..where as in networking.hardware jobs the case is different..

    it is a good option to choose networking..but one thing that has to be kept in mind is..the software industry expects less from a frehser...i mean the industry expects you to be having good technical knowledge,good academic profile..strong basics in software fundamentals,programming languages etc..once you are hired,you will trained acordingly as per the company's requirements..

    but the case with networking industry is different..since,the academic courses in networking engineering are not so vast and because of the limited opportunities..the networking companies usually welcomes THE CERTIFIED PROFESSIONALS..that is you must be certified as a network associate,that will enhance your selection..if not,the industry atleast expects you to have good domain knowledge in the following aspects..

    Hardware -Processor Types,Cache Memory,CMOS, BIOS, Storage Devices, I/O Devices, USB,Firewire, PCMCIA, Card Bus

    Operating System -Multiprogramming OS, Multitasking OS, Multiuser OS, Virtual Memory, Windows OS 3.1 to Vista, Macintosh

    Networking Concepts - OSI, DoD Model, TCP/IP, Topology,Media Access protocols - CSMA/CD,CSMA/CA, IP Address, Private IP, Public IP, Subnet Mask, APIPA, DHCP, DNS, Firewalls,VPN,SPI, NAT

    Networking Devices - Repeater, Hub, Bridges, Switch, Router, Gateway.

    Wireless Networking -Wireless PC Cards, Wireless PCI Cards, Access Point, Range Expanders, Ad-Hoc,Infrastructure, Beacons, Channels, SSID, Wireless Standards, MIMO, Draft "N", WEP, WPA.

    You should be able to Design, Develop, Setup, Configure and maintain networks.if your passion is networking then go ahead and get certified..your chances of selection will be enhanced..

    You can get a job in them and can earn a lot of money,you can become routing master,also any type of engineering post in network.
    You can also make your own network.

    Networking is a good option for you as your interest.

    Also if you would have chosen Programming then there are many posts like:-
    software developer,System Analyst,Data Mining & Warehousing,Security Checker,Network & Hub Specialist,System Administrator,
    Compiler Design,Software Tester,Systems Engineering,Web Designer,Artificial Intelligence,Computer Graphics & Animation,Web Developer.


    These are the opportunities available for you in the programming field.

    Generally , for the CSE graduates , they will have more openings in the I.T Companies for the post of Software engineer.
    Actually , Networking field is also Good . But , when comapared with the I.t Jobs with Networking jobs , they will have more salaries .
    So, it is better to choose Software job .

    If you are not good at programming , then you can choose , FUNCTIONAL side courses .

    Some are ,

    SAP-BO
    SAP-BI
    OBIEE
    Oracle-d2k
    Oracle-Functional , etc...

    These will have good salaries in many companies

    So, you can choose anyone of these courses.

    If you have not intrested in i.t jobs , then you can complete the following courses to get high salary .

    -) Networking
    -) CCNA
    -) CCNP
    -) CCIE


    All the best

    My dear friend.

    Both Networking as well as Software field jobs are very good and fast growing jobs.

    Both of them offers good salary also.

    The main difference b/w the Software and Networking jobs is that in software related jobs more work is to be done through coding.

    That means you need to ave good programming skills in programming languages like Java, C++ etc.

    Only then you can become successful in the Software field.

    On the other hand in case of networking field jobs you need to possess good hardware knowledge, sharing skills, routing and other networking related skills.

    It will be good if you possess a certificate in the following networking courses:-

    --> CCNA

    --> CCNP


    So choose the stream which you know the best and which is easy for you.

    Both are good.

    I hope i have made my point clear.

    Thank You.

    Dear Friend,

    As you have clearly specified your taste of interest,you may go for networking jobs.

    Networking jobs are lucrative but requires an additional certificates like CCNA,CCNP etc which are given by authentic Microsoft,Cisco,Redhat etc.

    With this certificate and having done some live projects ie web based projects you are on the highway of opportunities.

    Prepare well before aptitude test and interview.

    Wish you all the best.
