    Re: Which has a better job prospects among software and banking sector?

    as you are an engineer you should go for that type of fields to get job satisfaction which is the most important thing that matters. so i think you should go for I.T firms instead of banks. the advantage is that you get paid with a high scale of salary and your knowledge will not get segregated..you will be satisfied with the job. as a result you do it more perfectly by devoting yourself to it by utilizing your knowledge. i am giving you a lists of companies:
    1.IBM2.INFOSYS
    3.SYNTEL
    4.PPT
    5.TCS
    6.ACCENTURE
    7.CTS
    8.BSNL
    9.MTNL
    10.VODAFONE
    11.AIRCEL
    12.POLAR SOFTWARE LTD.
    13.RELIANCE ASSOCIATES
    14.RELIANCE TELECOM LTD.
    so best of luck...

    Both jobs have there own advantages but in my opinion you have take that job which is suitable for you like you are a IT student so Software engineer is a good job for you and this job gets you more benefit than banking job ............so you should go for a software job.........

    Definitely your core field should be given more preference.You will get to use your skills more in Software industry as you have learned about it.Else you will be wasting your education.If you really want to join banking sector,you should apply for the posts of Specialist Officers which recruits Engineering graduates from IT,CS and those vacancies comes out for all banks.Rest your choice

    Re: Which has a better job prospects among software and banking sector?

    Dear you need to chose the job which you can enjoy in the long run. You should be passionate about your role otherwise you will be frustrated no sooner than later.
    At the same time let me also tell you that both the jobs are generally monotonous as they involve a work which is repeated on daily basis.
    However there are fields in both the sectors which require creativity and gives you challenge almost on daily basis like in the banking sector treasury operations, corporate banking group, risk management and in the same way in software designing, animation, games development (primarily with Google, oracle) are highly demanding and exciting in nature. You may need to work for some time to ask for the desired role in either of the field.

    Both software and banking sector are two different field. It completely depends on your area of interest which sector suits to you. Both sectors has own life style its upto you which you like most. If you are good in coding you may opt software field but remember in long run you may not require to code you may be as management level post in software company.

    Re: Which has a better job prospects among software and banking sector?

    In my thinking Job prospects are available for both software and banking sectors.To get a job in Software or Banking sector you have to crack competitive exam.
    The following IT sectors are
    HCL
    SIEMENS
    WIPRO
    ACCENTURE
    CTS
    TCS
    VODAFONE

    The following Banks are
    HDFC BANK
    ICICI BANK
    SBI BANK
    UTI
    UBI
    UCO BANK

    Salary are good for software sector and also for banking sector.
    But in banking sectors Job security is better than software sectors.
    Good luck.

    Dear friend,

    Its all depends upon you that in which field you want to work. Both Banking sector and Software developer have the potential that they will offer you a good career. You have growth in both sector. So I would like to suggest you that please choose any one field and try to go in depth so you will see yourself on the top after few years of experience.

    All the Best

    dear friend

    you are confused between banking sector and software sector
    in my view you should go with banking sector if you are getting it because it is the field in which you can get long term amd job security
    and job satisfaction so you think what do you want and in which way you want to go

    all the best

    hey.....hello.....i would say that if you can get a good job as a software developer in MNC than you should go for it because it would be more money infact a lot of money.....plus you can change your job after getting good work experience and you will automatically get pay rise of atleast 30%.....but if you are looking for long term one place job with good retirement benefits and security than go for PO exam and get job in bank......from there work hard and move up the ladder.....

    Good Luck for your future

    Re: Which has a better job prospects among software and banking sector?

    Hi.......
    Answer of first part of your question in my opinion is, what you want inside of your hurt is matter because it does not matter that you are a software engineer an you have to for a software job. what matter is you are comfortable in field you are working and you are satisfied too. Satisfaction come when we do what our heart says. In these two field you should go to the in which you think you are comfortable. But yes it's true that you will find more opportunity in software field as you are a software field.
    Secondly In my opinion you bank job is more secure and has long run.
    Good luck..........

    Re: Which has a better job prospects among software and banking sector?

    Being a B.Tech candidate, your glorious future will definitely and obviously lie in your own field.If you want to be in Banking sector while utilising your technical knowledge,you should try for Specialist officers.Vacancies comes out every year for every bank.
    But banking sector will lead to stagnation after few years.You cannot use your technical skills to the fullest and neither you will be able to learn more.Even if you start off as a PO,then also it will be same.
    Whereas if you are in your own core field in any MNC,you have opportunity to learn new things.If your current organization seems not to be satisfactory you can switch MNCs.But in Banking sector,even switching banks will not help that much

    Re: Which has a better job prospects among software and banking sector?

    Dear Friend, Both the field have advantage and disadvantage, you have to choose based on your interest where you perform well and get job satisfaction, I would help to brief few advantage and disadvantage of both the field :-
    1. Software field brings you a handsome salary as a fresher, one may earn upto 50k on the other hand in hardware salary is confined or very less compared to software and growth is also slow.
    2. Being a Software professional , you can spent quite luxurious life and software professionals are very prone vision syndrome but in hard ware you need tremendous hard work as it involves physical work it gives real taste of work when you reach a good position in hardware, then only earns a good salary.
    3. There are so many top most IT companies like TCS,WIPRO,INFOSYS,IBM ,HCL,MICROSOFT,GOOGLE where you can get more vacancies of software jobs then hardware jobs
    So you have to decide and prepare accordingly.

    dear friend,

    this is all depend on your interest, because the interest of the man has very importance. if you want to go for the best companies then you have to do the best course.

    the bank job is very rest full job, you will enjoy it.
    but in these days the IT companies also giving the best package to the students, so you can also go for the best IT companies in india.

    some companies are:-
    WIPRO
    TSC
    CISCO
    INFOSYS
    HCL
    IBM
    SATYAM
    etc,

    so best of luck.

    Re: Which has a better job prospects among software and banking sector?

    IT IS BETTER TO GO FOR I.T. FIELD .
    IN BANKING SCTOR THE SALARY WILL BE A MXIMUM OF 40,000 PERMONTH , IF YOU WILL WORK THERE FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS .

    AT THE SAME TIME , IF YOU WORK I.T. FIELD FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS , YOUR SALARY WILL BE AROUND 80,000 TO 2,00,000 PERMONTH .

    GENERALLY , IT DEPENDS ON THE DOMAIN YOU WORK .

    THERE ARE MANY COURSES FOR A GOOD SALARY

    JAVA
    ORACLE-SERVER
    ORACLE-FINANCE
    SAP-BO
    SAP-BI
    SAP-ABAP
    MAINFRAMES , etc. .

    IN BANKING SCTOR THERE MAYOT BE THIS HIGH SALARY.
    AS YOU CAME FROM B.TECH THAT TOO IN I.T. FIELD , SO ,IT IS BETTER TO GO FOR SOFTWRE FIELD

    Re: Which has a better job prospects among software and banking sector?

    Hi
    because you are a Btech i would advise that you move ahead in the same field that is in s/w sector and not banking right now.
    because you have passed Btech in 2011 it seems that you are quite young , hence you have a lot of time to think , prepare and apply for bank PO jobs . the max age for it is 30
    and its also easy to crack.
    go and do some justice to your hardwork that you have put in doing BTech and no doubt you can earn more money in IT field.
    after 5-6 years you can plan and settle down in banking sector you you dont happen to like IT field a lot because its really too tiring.
    but i think both the fields are equally rewarding but as per your case start with IT later you can definitely switch to banking sector.

    since you ar an engineer go for software job beacuse po job is good no doubt but you will never get satisfaction.also po job doesnt give you any edge for growth or i can say regarding salary also its limited.whereas once you get experince in software field for 2 to 3 years your package is far far better than as it is in banking po.therefore my suggestion would be go for software industry.ATB

    Re: Which has a better job prospects among software and banking sector?

    dear both the career options have their pros & cons..... firstly you have to understand & be clear with your career aim & objective....

    both are the different line firstly,, if you opt for software engineer then no doubt private sector will give ample job opportunities with good packages and with the time & experience this will increase as well..

    whereas Bank Po job is not as easy it is spelled.... you have to first be sure that whether you have that much of potential, time & money to give your 100% for Bank PO preparation.... if you are looking for earning money & good money as soon as possible then software engineer is good.

    but if you look for prestigious job with security then bank PO is excellent..... in fact i would advice you to go IES.. Indian Engineering Services which is a civil services and equivalent to IAS & IPS. In this at least you have to study what you studies during B.Tech.

    where as Bank PO will be an entirely new path.... so choice is yours. good luck

    Dear friend,

    both career options are good in their respective fields,

    but the important thing is your job satisfaction and without job satisfaction you will not take interest and not grow for a long time so first you should think on your interest area and then prefer the field.

    Best of Luck
