Here’s how CodingNinjas helps students land their dream jobs

The world of IT and technology is without a doubt a competitive one. Computer and software engineers struggle to find jobs every year, because of the sheer amount of competition in the field. Software development and coding, which are the primary areas of work for software engineers, are certainly required by almost all businesses and firms, but the demand of engineers is way more than the supply.

What can a budding software engineer do to make him/herself stand out? Coding Ninjas brings to them an absolute abundance of courses to help them ace job interviews, learn programming from the ground up, learn how to code, and understand all the algorithms used in programming. With courses available for the latest trends in tech such as machine learning as well, Coding Ninjas are doing their bit to help students land their dream jobs in this competitive tech world.

Improving your programming fundamentals

For students who have just begun their journey towards becoming a computer or software engineer, the first step is getting the fundamentals of programming right. It is usually said that the hardest part of the journey is taking the first step, and Coding Ninjas is helping millions of software developer aspirants take this step. With their introductory courses for different languages like C++, JAVA with DS, Python with DS, and Algorithms, Coding Ninjas aim to quell all the fears of becoming a programmer that linger in the students’ minds. Here are some of the courses that make students ready for the ultimate challenge:

Competitive programming course: It is important for students to have participated and performed well in coding competitions. Not only for the resume, but also for the development of their own skillsets and confidence. With this course, we help students ace the coding competitions.

Aptitude preparation course: Aptitude questions are asked in almost every company’s placement test. The normal course curriculum is not designed to prepare students for aptitude tests, though. Because of this, a number of students are taken by surprise in the real exam. To overcome this, we have prepared this course with one of the best instructors, Dr. Arun Sharma.

Web Development with Node.JS: In this course, we teach students to build web apps using NodeJS. Because of how easily it teaches the students to turn himself into a developer from programmer, it is quite popular.

Data Science & ML course: Jobs in analytics and data science have been all the rage in recent times. The quality of jobs that being offered, too, are really nice. To equip students with the right skillsets for becoming a great data analyst/scientist, we have left no stone unturned in this course.

Interview preparation course: For many students, cracking interviews is not a cakewalk. With all the hardwork they put in for the earlier rounds, it is quite frustration to not go through this last door. However, we have created this course to make interview preparation easy for the students.

Machine learning course: Considering the latest advancements in technology, we have devised a full-fledged course on Machine Learning for students. In this course, we aim to simplify concepts of supervised, unsupervised, and other important concepts of machine learning for our students.

With Coding Ninjas’ courses, one can easily learn how to begin their journey towards becoming a competitive programmer, understand how to solve problems and convert solutions into working code, learn and understand algorithms, and ultimately build their own projects in order to give their resume an edge. Worried about not being able to reach the optimal solution of problems? Coding Ninjas is here to take you there, step by step! At Coding Ninjas, we make sure that our students learn the emerging technologies. For example, our students are very interested in the blockchain. This technology is used to process and record cryptocurrency transactions.

Things every 3rd year must remember about placement preparations

The 3rd year can be a bit stressful for many students. Only one year left and then you have to hustle for a job. As a 3rd year student, it’s best to start preparing for your placement from now. Since you will have to tackle both college education and the placement preparations simultaneously, it can seem like a burden. How can you tackle it now? But the pressure will only increase in your 4th year. Time is of the essence, so it’s best to seize the opportunities NOW. Here are some of the things that 3rd-year students should remember when they are preparing for the placement procedure:

Work on at least 2 technical projects on your own

When you go for an interview in a big tech company, the focus of the interviewer will be on your personal projects. This will show them that you take initiatives from your side to work outside your college syllabus. It shows that you are resourceful, creative and would go out of your way for personal growth. So, in your third year, try to at least work on 2 technical projects – be it building a website, an Android app, etc.

Prepare for Aptitude Tests
Aptitude tests are an underestimated part of the placement procedure. While you might be technically skilled, there is a chance that you may falter while taking the aptitude test. Start practicing really well for aptitude tests. Try to maximize your speed in the logic and quantitative aptitude sections. Read a lot of English newspapers to tackle the verbal section. Start solving CAT question papers to master Aptitude tests.

Prepare Case Studies
A few companies would discuss different case studies and ask you to solve them in the interview or Group Discussion round. Go through the different case studies of top tech companies, and read how they solved it. Form your own idea of the solutions. It will expand your problem-solving skills and help you evaluate different cases from a corporate point of view.

Prepare for interviews

You can start preparing for interviews when you are in the 3rd year. Read up on the placement stories of successful candidates to find out about the questions that they had to face. Try to understand the unique-factor in their replies that got them a job in companies like Google, Amazon or Facebook. Interviews, in general, can be scary. You tend to get nervous. So, conduct mock interviews with friends to ease out the pressure when it’s time to sit before an actual interviewer.

Regular GD with hostel mates or friends
Group Discussion or GD is an important round in the placement procedure. You have to stand out during the GD to actually make a mark in the eyes of your recruiter. But if you are suddenly placed in the group discussion room, you might go all sweaty. So, it’s best to conduct regular GD with your friends or hostel mates. Take up a problem or a case study and start a GD on it. Make it a bit fun too.

Try to get an internship at a good company

While the pressure is quite high during your college years, it will benefit you if you start an internship at a good company. As an intern, you get a much more in-depth knowledge of how your ‘education’ is applied in the real world. It’s a great update for your CV too. Plus, you get to meet new people and create a network. If you do well in the company, you might even be offered a pre-placement offer even before you graduate. 

When it comes to internships, it is important to understand the kind of company you should do one with. Should you do an internship at a startup or an enterprise? Well, there are two ways to look at it. By having an internship with a startup, you demonstrate enthusiasm and zeal. However, with large enterprises, you can demonstrate professionalism and meticulous behavior. The right thing to do here would be to balance it out. We all know that you need to have 2-3 internships on your CV. You can keep it as a mixture of internship with a startup, one with a big enterprise company, and one research fellowship at a reputed university if it’s something that interests you.

Participating in Coding Competitions

Coding competitions are a great way to improve your coding skills. Additionally, it can also be a great update for your CV. If you get a good rank in a coding competition or even get a prize, you can update it in your CV. Your recruiter will focus on your personal achievements. A coding competition acknowledgment will tell them that you are an efficient coder who can work well under pressure.

Keep your CV updated
Always keep your CV updated. If you have won a prize in a coding competition or are pursuing an additional technical course, write it in your CV. It should have all the information about your personal projects and internships too.

So, start your preparations and best of luck. Keep your fingers crossed. If you play your cards right, you might get your dream job in one of the top tech firms!
