I have completed Class 12 (non-medical stream) with 72.5% in the ISC board. Now, I plan to pursue BTech IT from Amritsar Engineering College. Would I be eligible for it? —Sonia

As you have the marks and have got admission in an engineering college, it is clear that you can do BTech in IT. But is this the course you want to do and will it lead you to a career you want to pursue?

If you enjoy ­working with ­computers, have strong ­mathematical and logical skills, are ­technically sound in IT and abreast of the technological changes, then any course of study in the field of IT can open up exciting career opportunities. There are many job opportunities in various industries as well as in IT services and vendor companies, financial institutions, telecommunication companies, manufacturing and retail businesses. If this is the kind of work you would like to do, you can go ahead with the BTech course. ---- Usha Albuquerque
After securing 90% in Class 12, I have started pursuing a course in chartered accountancy. I cleared CPT in June and I am now preparing for IPCC. I am also looking to pursue CS or CWA simultaneously. Please guide me on some other courses that can be pursued alongside CA to enhance my career prospects. —Amit Kumar Dwivedi

The CA programme is a very challenging and a strenuous course of study and, therefore, I would not advise you to take up multiple courses alongside. The IPCC Professional Competence Course (PCC) for CA includes practical training (articleship) with a practicing chartered accountant for a period of three-and-a-half years (42 months). This is like full-time work and is aimed at imparting practical knowledge to the students pursuing CA.

You will also have to take the information technology training module for 100 hours during the first 15 months of your articleship with the institutes accredited by ICAI for this purpose. There is a also a restriction for candidates taking up the professional accounting course of CA as they are allowed to pursue only one additional course in the related stream apart from CA while doing their articleship. If you are keen on CA, it is advisable to pursue BCom alongside through correspondence instead of looking at other programmes. The advantage here is that if you do not complete the CA programme, you have other postgraduation options to fall back on after your BCom. You can also consider CS or CWA at that stage. ---- Usha Albuquerque
I completed bachelor’s in political science from Delhi University. I followed it up with BTech from Amity University. I have taken up a job as a school teacher now but I will be quitting it soon as I am unhappy. I also took the MA entrance test but I don’t wish to go for a master’s degree. I am interested in a career in the fields of media or law. Please guide me. —Richa

There are many creative courses which can lead to satisfying careers if you have both the aptitude and interest in pursuing them. The media industry is highly dynamic and versatile. It has many different areas of work like advertising, PR and media marketing, broadcasting with the help of TV and radio, entertainment with use of audio visuals - films and videos, internet that includes blogs, forums, music, news, as well as journalism and reporting for TV and print, newspapers, magazines, websites and telephony and other interactive media. There are several jobs in each of these areas, and if you have strong communication skills, love working with people and ideas and have good organisational abilities, you could pursue a career in media. Law may not require so much creativity as much as loads of patience, comuunication and strong analytical skills. It takes years of hard work and dedication to become a successful lawyer, and you must be prepared for lots of academic study. ---- Usha Albuquerque
