Wish you all a belated Makara Sankranthi... Hope you all guys have enjoyed the festival. Just to recollect the things, I had already posted an wonderful fresher job opportunity last week with Mahindra Satyam. In-case you have missed it then check this post "Mahindra Satyam Hiring Freshers", the registration ends by this week 18th Jan 2012. So hurry up and apply for that fresher job opportunity.

IBM is certainly a good company to tag in your profile. Now, it's looking for freshers from different streams of education who can join them. They are looking out for 2010 and 2011 fresher pass-outs with a decent academic background. The job location is not yet finalized, which means that you might be deputed to any of the wide IBM locations across India. Another interesting thing to notice is that, they have told that they are willing to accept registrations from most of graduate courses except Pharma/Fashion technology.

Suggestion from CampusCub :
All I can suggest is to not let this opportunity. It's always easy to get job as freshers provided if you get an opportunity to apply as freshers. Now that you have it, I strongly suggest you to work on your technical skills. As a freshers they might not be expecting a lot from you but, you should prepare yourself to deliver a lot. Focus on the basics, go through the skills which are good at thoroughly and the others you should at-least be able to answer the theoretical questions.
Learn to write small program's when asked by interviewer. I can say focus on C, C++, Java, Oracle, Unix Commands. You can choose to select between C/C++/Java but, make yourself comfortable with basics of Unix and Database. This doesn't mean that you can leave your communication and aptitude skills. Focus on them too, as they might help you to go through the first round of written tests if any.
