On this week’s episode of Fixing the Bug, Shivangi from CodeQuotient sat down with Dr. Narinder Rana, the director at Maharaja Agrasen Institute of Management and Technology. He has a professional experience of 14+ years and is continuously working to enhance students’ employability skills. He offered his insightful thoughts and understanding of the employment market and the development of tech education in India.

Goal- To Achieve 100% Placements

Maharaja Agrasen Institute of Management and Technology has created a record of 100% placements for the 6th consecutive batch. This was made possible by crafting the right skills in students in every dimension possible. Dr. Rana advises that institutes should provide training that prepares the students for the future to face every new challenge that comes their way, broaden their perspectives, and know how to tackle their concerns.

Teachers are the Light Bearers


Teachers serve as their pupils’ guiding lights. The teachers guide the learners on the right path by identifying their weaknesses, strengths, habits and interests.

CodeQuotient’s partnership with the institute is a major step that the institute has taken where the learners are provided with a coding bootcamp program. This would help them in invoking their passion for coding and programming. The instructors are in charge of understanding how the learner is growing in terms of abilities.

Important Skills Required for Better Placement

1. Focus on Quality Learning

Dr. Rana believes that the quality of education is more important than quantity. It’s merely because, regardless of how many texts you read, you won’t comprehend any subject until you pay attention to it.

As the world moves faster toward big technological advancements, the knowledge of skills required is more important than the no. of certificates. Quality education places a greater emphasis on skill level. Hence, it is far more crucial than the quantity of education.

2. Soft Skills

According to Dr. Rana, soft skills are extremely important, no matter your skill set. Especially in engineering, developing soft skills is not something that college curricula often cover. Instead of being considered a general professional skill, it is recognised as a sales talent. But as new employment roles develop, everyone must be proficient in soft skills. One realises the actual worth of soft skills while facing high-pressure situations.

3. Avoid Procrastination

Although the consequences of procrastination may not initially appear, they can accumulate over time and cause worry, anxiety, dashed dreams, and low self-esteem. Procrastination may be a severe issue for students since falling behind on the pace of school work can be detrimental. In addition, it leads to piling up of things with no or little knowledge of required skills.

We require a push to go from a condition of rest into activity. Develop time management skills so you can deal with procrastination as it arises rather than letting it rule your life.

4. Be Consistent

Have you ever stayed up late studying only to realise that staying awake in class the next day requires more effort? If so, a modification is necessary. Successful students rarely attempt to squeeze all of their studying into just one or two sessions. Instead, they divide the syllabus across shorter periods of time. You must learn to be consistent in your studies. Have frequent and brief study sessions if you want to be a good learner. Read and complete your work regularly instead of putting it off for the next day.

5. Keep On Growing

A business or academic institution will always prefer hiring a candidate with practical experience. Working on real projects throughout your undergraduate years is the greatest method to establish one’s profile as a developer.

Once you gain experience with projects in college, try out stipend-based or free internships to gain real-life experience. This can be easily followed by freelancing, consultancy or projects for major businesses.

What Dr. Rana Wants You to Know About Success and Life

In Dr. Rana’s opinion, developing career skill goals is an important aspect to work upon. Setting career development goals allows you to improve your skills, pick up new ones, and accumulate more knowledge. There shouldn’t be any regrets where you wanted to do more but ended up with less. Give your 100% to what you are working on, but at the same time, don’t forget to have fun.

We hope to have provided some insightful information on how to build your skills and implement those in real life to improve your chance of placement in the IT industry. Tune into Fixing the Bug podcast and the CodeQuotient blog for further resources.
