Career Statement

I am a self motivated, honest, dynamic, creative and hard working undergraduate who is able to use my own initiative in successfully completing tasks. I also possess a proven track record of positively contributing to work as part of a team.

I seek a challenging position within the IT industry where I could learn from and contribute to serving the organization to the fullest of my abilities. I want to use my creativity, verbal and written communication skills, team working skills, interpersonal skills and practical intelligence.

Software engineering (SE) is the application of a systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approach to the development, operation, and maintenance of software, and the study of these approaches. That is, the application of engineering to software. Software Engineering involves the development of software in a well defined and schematic manner. It is a field, which undergoes rapid changes along with time and technology, in which newer opportunities are raised to propose innovative and creative ideas.

I am a person who is keen in challenges. The tasks of a Software Engineer are such that they tend to become more challenging with time and progress of a given project.

The field of computer science undergoes many changes with time. So in order to meet with these changes, changes in the various fields of businesses, changes of requirements of end-users, the potential Software Engineer must be a person with capability of imagination.

And this is a virtue that I have always possessed. I love to think different, work things out differently and look for new aspects of developing software, so that the current requirements of the filed would be met with. The tasks of a Software Engineer involves to a greater degree, high inter-personal skills, communication skills both written and oral. 

I am still an undergraduate, and the accomplishment is further ahead. The knowledge that I gained while being an undergraduate has taught on how to  explored and learned in this field of software development.
