  1. Hi,
    I have completed bsc computer science presently working in infosys bpo,suggest me any idea how i can get IT job my higher secondary mark is 57% only. so i can’t able apply for IT openings in big concerns and one more i wanted to do MCA in weekend colleges in anna univ… due to my family situation.. is it valuable by doing that in correspondance.?

    1. MCA through correspondence is not at all useful and advisable. Since you just have 57% You’re not eligible to Top IT Companies as you know. You need to try in small companies to get IT Job.
