In 2016 while explaining the company’s interview process, the recruiter of a reputed Software company asked me about my current CTC (salary package). This got me perplexed because my current salary was far less compared to the market rate. Anyhow, I gave away my current salary information and the technical interviews followed which I cleared over the next few weeks.
In this post I won’t be talking about the misgivings of social media in the young generation, or, the under-representation of women in computer technology, or how straight-out-of-college engineer kids are forced to slog for hours for peanuts as salary. Rather, I want to talk about the importance of computer awareness and the effects of community on people who want to learn computer programming.
It was one of the memorable moments of my career, I had just received the best engineer for the year award from the program director. I was jubilant and why shouldn’t I be, there were reasons for it. My client in the US had sent word of appreciation for my months of hard work done for their eCommerce ERP systems in Texas.
