Identification of essential parameters for post graduate students’ job placement in computer applications in India

  • Chirag Patel
Original Research


India is considered as the youngest country in the world as it is having the highest numbers of young people in the age range of 20–40 years. It is very important for a young student to get the job after finishing the study. After the announcement of Digital India, the Post Graduate (PG) students in computer applications have enormous opportunities in getting job placement in this domain. To get absorbed in these companies easily, a student must acquire certain essential attributes. In this research, we have collected data of students of computer applications discipline who have completed their PG course and those who are doing the study in the final semester of PG course. These data contain the various details such as whether the student is placed or not, salary package of the placed student, apart from a PG degree any additional certificate obtained by that student and many other related parameters. A survey through Google form is also conducted to extract the fundamental knowledge of the placed and the un-placed students. So these data are processed and essential parameters for the job placement of a PG student are extracted and unwanted parameters are filtered. In the paper all the possible parameters or attributes to get the job are discussed and essential parameters are selected based on the processed data.
