Lakhs of students including men and women passout of engineering colleges everywhere. So my question is where do these women engineers go after graduation. Most of them go for further studies and others for jobs but why do we not see them as engineers working at par with men. Where does the issue lie? Take any photographs of office spaces you will hardly find any women in their.
According to a study among the 38 percent of women who entered and subsequently left the field, 30 percent cited organizational climate, characterized by non-supportive supervisors or co-workers and general incivility, as a primary motivator.Nearly half left due to working conditions, like frequent travel, lack of advancement opportunities or low salary.
Recently the engineering giant Google also launched the made with code initiative to encourage young women to code seeing the dismal number of women coders.
Women have to balance a lot considering family life, office work etc which pushes them to the tipping point unable to handle the pressure.
If women are good they should be given a chance otherwise nothing can be done to improve this situation. They should be considered at par and equal to men.
A study has also found women who feel that they are making a difference while being in engineering tend to stay on longer at their work places.
It all lies in the want and need to feel accepted and to be regarded equal to men once corporates and offices realise this that will bring in a change.
|Well sometimes we used to sleep!|
This opportunity was given to me about a year ago have never repented it even once. Working on couches creating and learning new things every day makes you feel amazing.
The journey starts about a year back when being highly irritated from my previous employer i decided to look out for new jobs being a crazy job applier (i like to call myself this) :P. Came this opportunity a company i never heard of. Anyway being a crazy one i clicked the apply button with my resume and recruiterbox an unlikely place for applying jobs a year ago i must say.
Got shortlisted for the first round where i had to fill a questionnaire 40-50 questions long okay i am not kidding here it felt like a gigantic task anyway i filled it in parts while having lunch and by dinner i was done :P
I got a call and had a skype interview and an on site interview rest is history. Well this is how Mxit happened to me. My boss was one of kind awesome boss which everyone would love to have. He regarded us as an integral part of the organisation. No Indian boss i think can be as cool as he is sharing his knowledge and giving you ample space to grow and at the same time motivating you to take challenging assignments.
Every week we went for movies, enjoyed together and worked even more harder, being in a new city away from family all this made it less complicated and much more fun then you could ever imagine. Life happened.
Mxit has given me something that i could have never had in a big corporate the chance to experiment, a chance to grow and open up even more.
Start ups are all about being your self, opening up various dimensions about your personality, you have to do everything on your own here don't expect to be spoon fed.
You learn more, you strive more here cause every day you are thrown a new challenge a new deadline a new assignment.
You get a first hand experience of what it is like building a company from ground up and seeing the numbers grow every day makes you proud of yourself and keeps you motivated.

We have always been told to check websites like Naukri.com, Monster to get latest job updates and to take forward our job search on these portals. However with the job market growing ten fold its time that these massive portals might be becoming old school. Many recruiters nowadays are using other mediums to recruit suitable candidates. Today i will be listing some of the not so known job portals where you might end up finding your dream jobs. Please note that these websites are our personal favorites.
1. HasGeek (jobs.hasgeek.com)

ONLINE LEARNING IS A HUGE ADVANTAGE:
In the era where time is a big constraint and skills are needed to land in a great job, Online learning has become very useful for the masses, we at Tutoslive are tapping that area and make you as a student, fit in the corporate world.
We are listing here some of the top reasons why we feel that online learning will be the next big thing and what are its advantages and some drawbacks over traditional learning - where one goes to various training institutes.
1) Stay Home and Learn
|Momma will miss You|
There were times when someone had to travel miles to get some quality education or a skill. In the age of technology, You do not need to travel miles but instead have a computer with internet hooked on. But online tutorials does not motivate you to learn which happens only with classroom education. Unless and until the trainer is pro active and interactive, it is hard to get motivated to learn a skill online. At Tutoslive we do the same, the course is more motivation oriented skill training. Here we teach PHP and Web Development in the most fun and interactive way which you can find no where.
2) No Migrations and No Travel
|I Miss my Home|
In developing countries, education is the main source of development and we see a lot of schools in every nook and corner of the country. But coming to a skill training or job opportunity, you need to migrate to a Closer City where training and job placements are more. This involves in moving out of your homes, going to a new place, staying in hostels, eating hostel cooked food. All this happen only with your interest to learn a course, land in a job and that too for a course which is not more than 2 hours a day. Online education solves this, you can learn from home and then migrate to a city when you gather confidence with a skill to get a job. You can eat home cooked food, hangout with friends in the evening, and do all sorts of other personal things attending the class form home.
3) Online education is great for socializing:
|I met some cool people who I can be talk about technology|
In traditional schools, we get to meet people confined to a locality. That is how we make our first friends. When we move out of college and learn a skill from an institute we meet people who have the same problem or same IQ and make friends. Like such, in an online school, you have no limit on meeting new people. You have the opportunity to meet more smart and enthusiast people from all corners of the world. The world may be big in area, but internet made miles into smiles, you connect with people instantly.
4) Improves your internet skills
|I get answers only when I ask it in a right way.|
Everything today is online, be it shopping, ordering food, knowing technologies or socializing. We seldom try to know what is that thing behind the scenes which makes our life easier and more online. But when we take a course online and start learning, we will be interested in knowing things. You ability to look for answers and searching for questions will increase when you take an online class. At Tutoslive we teach you how the coolest things online are built and who knows you can build your next idea learning from us.
5) Online classes are recorded so that you can revise later
|Now I can watch it at my pace, rewind, forward, pause|
Online education uses a robust technology such that each and every detail of the class is voice and video recorded. They also record every action that happen on the trainers screen or projector. So if you feel like you missed a class while attending a ceremony or missed a class because you were sick, no problem, you can never miss a class with these recorded online class.
