  • Assuming that you might have done your 12th class at an age of 17 or 18, you must be doing something during the last 9-10 years. That information would have been helpful for us to suggest you the future course of action.

    Anyway, let us not dig the past and as you have indicated that you have some interest in computer line then there are many specific sub areas in that where you can see your capabilities to be fully utilised in return for an appropriate financial compensation to you.

    As I am not aware of your experience and knowledge in the computer field so we will start from the lowest job position to other better avenues in the computer area.

    The basic work in computer starts from the data entry or typing type of work for which the only proficiency required is a good typing speed associated with some knowledge of word processor, excel sheets and may be power point for office presentations. These jobs come under the category of secretary or office help jobs. These are for beginners but they can become a good career option if one is laborious and has patience to sit with the boss till late in the night or may be on some holidays also. Simple computer courses of a one to two months duration are sufficient to make one aware of the basic office softwares in use. For example a one month certificate course in 'Office Automation' consisting of Basics of computer, Windows, MS Office, Communicating using Internet, Web Browser, Communication and Collaborations, Making small presentation etc will be sufficient for the above purpose.

    The next level is of computer system management in which the computer set up in the workplace and its day to day management right from checking of the battery back up to peripheral devices including the availability of consumables for a smooth functioning of the computer network in the office. Of course in case of breakdown you are not supposed to repair it rather you have to call the repair and maintenance people for the same as the computers in any workplace are generally on AMC. To get this type of job a certificate course in 'PC Assembly and Maintenance' consisting of Basic of computer and I/O devices, Study of monitors, memory, Hard disk and motherboard I/O ports, Graphic card, Installation of printer, modem, OS & scanner and Networking fundamentals is sufficient.

    Let us go up to the next higher level of knowledge acquisition which is the 'Certificate Course in Web Designing'. This is a good area and very interesting for those who are interested in the World Wide Web that is internet. This course generally comprises of the elements like - Introduction to Internet & Web, HTML, DHTML, JAVA Script, Flash PhotoShop, CSS Project on Website Development etc. This is a bit imaginative and creative type of work and may require some practice and hard work before achieving a particular level.

    If you understand that your capability is much above these then you may have to go one step ahead and go for the courses like - Interactive multimedia development, Animation and creative design, Certificate course in programming language(s), Certificate course in financial accounting (like - TALLY), Certificate course in PC, Hardware & Networking

    So depending upon your present calibre and aptitude you have to choose from the above lot and then apply for a commensurate job in this area of computers.

    If due to some reason you are not able to pursue your desire of working in computer areas then do not feel discouraged as there are many other job options right from office assistants to help staff in companies and industries and do not shy away from the small jobs. In fact small jobs are the one where you get a lot of learning and experience and then only you can switch to other better jobs.

    Knowledge is power.
