Hi Preethi!

You asked about a very broad career area. I will present a list of occupations, but first it is very important to get to know yourself and determine which careers your personality, aptitude, and interest match most directly. The most frustrating times I spent when I was doing college recruiting were the times when a graduate found that he/she did not like the job for which he/she studied, as he/she skipped this step. Looking for a career is like buying a pair of shoes. They may look great, but you need to try them on and wear them for a while to determine fit and comfort. Here are some good exercises for you:

Here is a good site that lists many possible occupations. Although this is for the US, you can find the same occupations in Canada:

When you identify some areas of interest, here are some good ways to find out more information about these areas. Here are some good ways to get some great information and career exposure: - talk to your school counselor about participating in coop, intern, shadowing, and volunteer programs that will allow you to see what people do, how they got there, what advice they have, and how you feel about it. - talk to the head of alumni relations at your school to arrange to talk to graduates working in your area of interest to learn more from them - as many people get their start at a community college, talk to the head of alumni relations at your local community college to arrange to talk to graduates in your area of interest to see what they are doing and see how they got there - talk to the head of alumni relations of any training program or facility related to your areas of interest to get valuable information from graduates and create valuable relationships. - talk to your school adviser and the reference librarian at your local library to locate and attend meetings of professional organizations in your area to which people in your area of interest belong, so you can mix and mingle and learn from them.

Networking is a good way to learn the most from the above named. Here are some good tips:

Let me know if and how this is of help. Keep me posted. I would like to follow your progress.

With software being more and more prevalent, almost every field needs people who understand it at a deep level. Most opportunities will be somehow related to writing software, but there are no limitations on the context.

Having a knowledge of computer systems and programming can open the doors to many types of careers. There is a lot of software being developed in large companies to automate their business processes so you are not limited to working for software development companies like Microsoft. Typical software related careers can be developer, software tester, business analyst and project manager. All businesses have some kind of association with technology, from Banking, Insurance, Pharmaceuticals, there are also consulting companies that hire IT specialists and have them work short term assignments for various other companies. It is a good career choice as there are many options.

hello! Sometimes companies offer rotation programs within the graduate program for employees to learn different areas and find which ones they like the most.

Also, you can look for Graduate Talks in your local area/webinars. Technology Meet-ups Career Guidance Teachers

And connect with Dell Careers on Social Media or other IT companies

Good luck!
