Talk in Comsats Islamabad on ICT

It is very confusing for everyone to start a degree program and not have a clear picture in which field I/we should make a career. Even though there are a lot of fields and we came across from different people that these are fields in which we can grow or get more money but still we are not sure in which field we should move with.

I was invited to Comsats, Islamabad Campus by Mr. Rashid Mukhtar, who is Assistant Professor and Head of ILC (Industry Leasion Cell) and trying his best to engage the industry with students so students get good knowledge that after degree program which sort of practices, tools or career paths are good to join or adopt/adapt.

My talk was a road map from starting studies, the challenges we face during studies, theory versus practical work, then I shifted my talk to highlighting the importance of Freelancing and by freelancing, how we can uplift our skills.

During studies, almost we all have a lot of ideas in our mind so I suggested bringing them out and making product MVP (minimal viable product) and then converting into start-up as we have various initiatives by government and private associations.

I also shared various top-ranked or most required business domains which are growing rapidly

I summed up my talk with some professional tips for students like:

  • Focus
  • Believe
  • Agility
  • Mindset
  • Integrity
  • Quality
  • Giving Attitude
