Tens of thousands of engineering student graduates every year. It is easy to get lost in the crowd. Many engineering graduates fail to make a proper decision. Even after graduation, they wander without right direction in life. Just passing engineering degree is not the panacea in life.
If you are in final year of the engineering studies it’s high time to ponder about your future. It’s prime time to reflect back to your academics and also look ahead and prepare for the real life.
In this blog, we will give you the tips and advice about your career. In this blog, we present the list of things you can do when you are in final year of engineering to make your life better and land dream job after graduation.
Know about yourself.
Most of the engineering student fail to understand about their life. Most of the time in your interview you will be bombarded with the questions ” Tell me more about yourself”. However, engineering student fails to answer this question properly. Know about yourself. Figure out what’s your strength and weakness. If you know your strength, you can highlight them. Prepare well ahead while you are in the final year for answering this question.
Knowing about your weakness gives you the real chance to work on it. You will still have one more year to work on the weakness and improve the skillset. Make a plan and every day work on it.

Attend the career counselling sessions held in your university and college. Start interacting with potential employers and companies. Figure out your options. Know your dream job, seek advice with seniors and reach a concrete decision and work on it.
Use Engineering projects to enhance employability
Mini-projects and final year projects are the backbones of engineering students. You will often get the question about your academic project in interviews. Your projects give you an opportunity to implement your theoretical knowledge into practice. Identify your areas of interest and do the final year project on that domain. Do the little bit of research. Be honest and genuine. Try to work on your unique project. It’s not good to copy someone else’s project idea. Creativity matters.
Do your project yourself. These days most of the engineering student buys the project. Avoid it. Doing your project by yourself not only enhance your engineering degree but also increases your confidence while facing the questions in interviews. With original project ideas, there are maximum chances of getting a job after graduation.
Do Degree Check
Make sure you truly will GRADUATE after final year. Many students fail to clear the backlogs and are forced to waste time even after the final year just clearing backlogs. At first, make sure that you don’t have any backlogs. Even if you have them then make sure you will be clearing before your graduation. Work on it. It’s the prime thing you have to do in your final year.
Get Real-time Experience
Even though you are a fresh graduate, but recruiters look for achievements. They ask you what are your achievements? Be prepared when you are in a final year. Do some engineering project other than just final year project. Polish your technical skills. Take an extra certification, these will be handy. These will be proven a boon when you are facing interviews. You can tell them how you develop those technical skill set, how you learn to become team players and so on.
The fundamental things are to develop the habits of thinking outside of the box. This will make you a problem solver. Develop creative thinking
