In the competitive and challenging market, a student holding just a B.Com degree is not enough to make a mark in the market. You need to have the required skills and additional competencies to survive in the current job market. You must have an in-depth knowledge and know-how of the industry you are going to work in. Courses like B.Com are only limited to theoretical concepts however it is very important to know how to implement these concepts practically on field. Below are the few reasons and tips on how you can improve and get a good job with along with a B.Com degree.
Plan before you apply for the course:
Most students step into the commerce stream without even doing proper research and planning on whether they are fit for this field or not. You should have a proper career plan drafted in your mind before you take the final step. Never postpone your career plans.
Practical Exposure is a must:
Students holding just a B.Com degree do not help them get a good salary package and position. Organizations are always in search of employees with good practical skills and knowledge. Students can apply for parallel courses alongside B.Com to enhance the value of their qualifications. You can apply for professional courses like Chartered Accountant, Company Secretary, Cost Accounting etc.
Make a wise decision:
You must always do a SWOT Analysis before you choose the course. SWOT Analysis is basically writing down your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. You can create a LinkedIn profile to get the best jobs. Keep polishing your strengths by learning new softwares like Tally, Quickbooks, SAP which gives you an added advantage over other aspiring candidates. You must always work on your weaknesses instead of hiding them. One can always apply for personality development courses to groom their personalities and improve his/her communication skills. Keep applying! Whenever you surf a company’s website, go through the career page and check if there are any job openings which can be the best fit for you. Upload your resume on Naukri.com, TimesJobs.com etc. You must do your best to always stay active and stay ahead of your competitors and keep learning new things.
Academic Courses you can go for:
Commerce stream is divided into 3 types – academic courses like B.Com provides with a theoretical base of commerce stream, professional courses like CA, CS and ICWA and the third type is vocational courses like Banking & Finance etc. Theoretical courses do not provide the required practical exposure to the students.
