Job opportunities after MSCIT

First of all, let’s talk about the government sector. In Maharashtra, the first condition for any government sector job (which includes computer-related work, e.g. clerk, accountant, etc.) is MSCIT. So if you want to do a job under Maharashtra Government, do this course.

Now let’s talk about the private sector. In fact, MSCIT is not widely accepted in private IT companies. Because this course gives you limited education about computers, it does not make you an expert in a particular thing. And you know how much competition there is in a private company. To do a job in a private company means you have to know coding, you need to know about computer languages. And not all of this is taught in MSCIT.

It’s not that you won’t get a job on this course, you will get a job, but it is in a startup company. Where you get a lower salary. If you want to go to a big IT company. you can’t go through MSCIT.
