: Your LLb and ACS qualifications complement each other. If
you really want to be successful and make money, you have to focus
and specialise in one area. When all agreements of WTO becomes
fully operational, demand for consultants in WTO related matters
will be very high. Second area is IPR and related issues. Third
is International Arbitrage, again based on WTO regulations, multinational
companies may opt for arbitrage instead filing in courts. Lawyers
are best-suited to specialise in the above areas.
am at present working as a computer operator in a small organisation.
Can I get a job with the educational qualification that I have
: A job would only be possible if you had formal qualifications
at least a degree, but since you are still in the first year of
your graduation, you could try teaching in computer training institutes
involved in web technologies. You could also do programming for
free lance projects. You might get a job if you are lucky, but
my advice to is to continue your education even after you get
a job. Also keep in touch with all these Internet Technologies
even when you are doing your B.Com.
want to be a programmer. As currently I'm working as web designer
which is the best way to become a programmer.
: In order to become a programmer, you will first of all need
to acquire the programming skills by doing a course in Java, ASP,
Web Technologies etc. My suggestion to you would be to do an MCA
which will help you to better your career and will get you a firm
foot holding in the IT job market. If it isn't possible for you
to do a full-time MCA, you could always try to a correspondence
course through IGNOU.

: There is nothing like a good job, yes there are well-paying
jobs and jobs in good companies. You haven't mentioned if you
are working currently or not, I'll assume you are not. At this
stage in your career, you need to concentrate on getting a job
in the area you are interested in or the skills you are proficient
in. Take a job with a small company, gather an experience for
atleast 2 years, be well-versed in those skills and then shift
to a bigger company after aquiring a few more skills. You may
have to compromise on the salary aspect but after acquiring enough
experience you can look forward to a job with a good pay and in
a good company.

What kind of co will I fit in
What is the salary band I should shoot for
Do costs compensate for ESOP which I will forfeit
: Typically you would fit in as head of Business Development
or head of a new business in a medium to large scale company,
the salary band could vary from 12-20 lacs, and if you are very
attractive one can seek a compensation for ESOP but if the amount
is very large, it is difficult. Please send your detailed C.V.
if you have any further questions.
