graduation. As many get placed after completing B.E. or B. tech. but still due to

2-3 years don't get a permanent job. It will take quite a lot of skill and a lot
of luck to stick with your job. Many of you are confused what to do after their
engineering. I thought this is a subject of utmost importance.
