Fresher job opportunities in Hyderabad & Chennai : De-Shaw




I get asked few questions by freshers and most of those questions are on the Pay that the companies offer, very less people ask me about how to prepare and any useful tips and suggestions that could help them in getting a job. I have to admit that it's really sad for me. I some times feel that why the student are thinking this way and why they ask me about the pay packages but not about the learning curve. I really pity the current education system, which is doing very minimum favor to the graduates.

Now, coming back to our business as usual. If you are looking for a good job as fresher then focus on the learning curve not the extra things like Package, Work Environment, Perks etc etc... They are not going to improve you in getting the job but they are wasting your time. So, All I can suggest you is to just start learning a lot on the technology you are looking for job and all others will come automatically to you, even without you thinking about them.

Hope you haven't missed out our last few fresher job opportunities post, if you have missed then here is the glimpse of the recent one's which we have found for you............


Today I have bought you a job opportunity which could prove to be very difficult to get it. But, if you manage to crack it.. I bet you would praise me for letting you be aware of this job opportunity which other wise would have been difficult to be found. 


Yes, it's with a company names De-Shaw. It's a company based out in Hyderabad and Chennai and the most interesting thing about that is it's a very good paying company. But for that as I have already told you need to put in lot of effort. You need to be exceptionally well in the interview and also they would shortlist your resume on the basis of the academic performance.
