Microsys Technoware Solutions (P) Ltd. offers better career opportunities in various field like project analysis, project management, software development, database administration, report generation, web designing, tool development, e-server management, project maintenance, software marketing, consulting and entrepreneurship. Our learning system is developed in a manner so as to expose the students, faculties and developers to the real world information technology and be a part of the emerging globalized IT industry. Having an exposure to a good work culture in the beginning of their professional life guarantees success in all their endeavours. We have seen over the years that the students trained here are very well prepared to handle responsibilities and work with the most cutting-edge technology in the industry. This belief works as a driving force for us to try and ensure that our students get a jump start in their career. We provide our students with the best avenues to utilize their skills by helping them find gainful employment with the best of the engineering firms.
Practical Training is a very important component of the curriculum meant for the students. As a part of the industrial training, arrangements are made for the students to undergo practical training during winter and summer vacations and utilize their talent in some real time projects. Sometimes students are allowed to directly to directly involve themselves in client side projects and attend meetings, seminars and conference. It is quite interesting to be burdened with a responsibility while at the same time learning to shape up a bright career for the future. IT complexity is growing fast in most jobs. Jobs that traditionally required few skills now demand an increasingly broad range of abilities. This reflects the requirement for broader skill sets and increased worker flexibility. Surviving as a worker today is all about managing extra responsibilities and an ever-increasing range of day-to-day duties. You'll discover your preferred way of working, your values and the type of roles you're best suited with our career guidance assessment tests. You can earn more, learn more, and go further in life by moving up the value chain –a broad term that represents the way in which your skills widen and deepen over time. In the workplace, you move up the value chain by acquiring and applying relevant new skills and knowledge and then using them to rapidly solve difficult problems.Taking the next step career-wise doesn't have to mean changing direction: it might do, of course, but equally you might be looking to secure a promotion in your current company, or even simply to expand your horizon.
Our career support promotes  traineeships with bodies, institutions and departments of the entrepreneurial world at the local, national and international level. This experience aims at providing a direct knowledge and a first significant step towards the labour field. The promotion of traineeships aims also at allowing our students become a precious human resource for international sectors. To supplement the higher education activities of the Corporate World in IT sector and to provide a practical application of the skills achieved during the academic year, we organize traineeships in organizations and companies, both at the national and international level. Our traineeships allow newly-graduates to get in contact with the professional world and to utilise the acquired knowledge in Community policies during the year of study. In order to help students explore the traineeship opportunities, at the end of the study programme, we offer to our students various tools and assistance to plan the first steps of the students' professional career and a rapid inclusion in the labour market. This activity is developed through three steps:
  • Informational Support
  • Traineeship Organisation
  • Guidance to international careers
Career advice
  • Carry out a “career audit”: what has been the shape of your career to date? What are your career ambitions in the medium to longer term (say, the next 3 to 5 years)? What does that tell you about where you need to be heading in the next year or so ?
  • Think about your skills, strengths and weaknesses and, more importantly, about what you do and don't enjoy in work terms. Be honest: this is for your eyes only! What are the skills gaps that you need to fill so that you can get to where you want to be job-wise?
  • Now take each of the skills gaps that you have identified and think about what you can do to bridge those gaps. Perhaps you can get some training, read career or personal development books, or find yourself a mentor. Whatever it is, put in place a specific and timed plan to get you there. Set yourself goals and deadlines.
  • Review your progress regularly – at least every 3 months. It's also a good idea (even if it sounds slightly cheesy!) to keep a diary or journal so that you can jot down contacts, ideas, interesting websites or articles that you come across, as well as keeping a record of your progress and achievements.
  • Upgrade yourself. Try to dress and act for the role you want, not the role you're currently in. That doesn't mean spending a fortune on expensive clothes and haircuts (although it's a good excuse!), but it's about being well groomed and professional in your appearance. Our opinions about other people are usually formed in the first couple of minutes after we meet them. First impressions are critical.
What our experts say
  • When it comes to the areas and issues that tend to hold people back from progressing in their career, top of the list is not getting yourself noticed. Lots of us shy away from the idea of networking, but if you're not visible in your company or industry, you're going to find it very hard to get promoted, headhunted or even recognised for the contribution that you make. Remember that networking is about building up contacts and relationships over time, and it's about helping other people as much as asking them to help you – which makes it all a bit less daunting.
  • People skills become more and more important the higher up the ladder you go. This isn't just because you're interacting with more people and at a more senior level; it's also because the higher up you go, the further you are away from the “coalface”. You're more dependent on other people to do things for you rather than doing them yourself. What that means is that you have to be good at relating to people, managing them and persuading them. If you're not comfortable with this, you need to work on it!
  • Another skill that is critical in terms of helping you to progress is the ability to see the bigger picture. You need to be able to distinguish between things that are really important and things will have no real impact on the company's bottom line. If you aren't already, get yourself up to speed with what's happening in your industry as a whole, not just the company you work for. What are the key challenges and threats that are likely to come along? What will be the most important issues that the industry has to contend with in the next couple of years? Read the trade press relevant to your industry and keep yourself informed and up-to-date.
  • Be vigilant and ready to spot and respond to opportunities. That means knowing your longer-term career plans so that you can take advantage of chances that come up which could help you get there. It also means simple stuff like keeping your CV fresh and updated.
