Carrer after becoming a software engineer
Software engineering is the most trending course students pursue after their senior secondary, but it is the most followed carrier choice due to a reason. First is that it is a booming industry and expanding at a very vast scale in India, and another being that the job prospects are high and extensive in this field. So let us discuss what the jobs that are available in the software industry are:-
Coder is the one who develops the code for any website or any app. These codes act as a backend of the particular software and help in the running of that software. Their task is to write codes only.
Developers Work with the codes that are written by the coder. Sometimes they write the codes also, but their task is more than that. They implement them for applications and see that if there is any problem with the code provided. If they face any issue, they come up with various solutions to cope with those issues of the codes.
Please don’t confuse the word architect with the ones who build our houses. The software industry also has architects in them. The difference is that their architects build homes, and here the architect’s task is to create the framework. Architects decide whether the codes will be generated on some existing framework, or the software they want to build requires something new. If so, they have to construct a whole new framework according to the project and provide it to the developer or coder.
- Project Manager
The Project Manager works as a decision-maker and the manager of the team. The project manager assigns all the tasks. Each and everyone has to report to the project manager with their work for approval before moving forward. In return, the project manager communicates to the higher authorities. The project manager also deals with the clients and takes reviews and orders from the clients. He also performs the task of explaining everything to the clients; either they know about the technology or is a non-techie. Being at this level requires tonnes of work ethics, dedication toward the work, and experience also.
This title consultant may be a little confusing. They maybe know and perform the task performed by all of the above. Perhaps they know anyone of the job or none of the above. They work as a freelancer, and company specially hire them to consult their client and get them on board. They help the companies getting their clients onboard and charge a hefty amount from the company. It may be on a client basis or hourly based. They generally support the consumer choosing what is best for them and how this company can provide you.
Being such a vast field in terms of job aspect, the statistics also favor pursuing jobs in the software sector. Current stats show that the software industry is growing around 7.5% per year. The projected stats say that it will be a 350 billion dollars industry by the end of 2025 from 191 billion dollars in 2019-20.
