Many fresh graduates and Engineering Students have a question if new buzzwords like Machine Learning, Deep Learning , Big Data and Data Analytics are better than Web Development Career. These new technologies are very important and also pay very well. But is it a better career choice for Engineering Students and Graduate Engineers who are coming out of Tier 2 and Tier 3 Engineering Colleges. I feel Tier 1 are the IITs, NITs and a few other reputed Colleges.
I will provide five very good reasons why Web Development is a better choice than the latest buzzwords for all the graduates who are looking for their first job offer.
Web Development has greatest supply of jobs :
Website and Web presence is the new norm. Every new company and old company, one man company or 1000s of employee company, all needs web presence and web applications. The demand for web developer is too huge when compared with the new technologies. The web developer job is not going to become obsolete in the near future until and unless someone is killing the internet. If a new company is born it needs a website and if a company is having a old website it needs to be converted to responsive website. So job opportunities are too huge to ignore. Whereas Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Big Data kind of jobs are much less and also have a high bar for recruitment.
Web Development Career entry barrier is low :
Since every small company and big company needs a website and most of them may be using a web application or customising a web application, jobs exist everywhere. So when small and big companies are looking for web developers, there is a high chance that they take fresh graduates and experiment with their low end work and give the deeper skills on the job.
Wherease Machine Learning and Deep Learning or other special technologies need specific skill sets and are available only with companies that are developing something on these technologies. It is not a common thing in IT sector that every company is looking for Machine Learning developers and those which are looking for these developers might have specific important project. So the interview process and entry process for these technologies will be much higher.
Web Development is simple and complex so you can start small and improve :
In Web Development there are simple tasks that can be done and can grow complex with Client Side MVC frameworks like Node and Angular. But a fresh graduate can start with small HTML, CSS, JavaScrip and some CMS tools and over a period of time learn the lates technologies like Node, Angular and other latest technologies which pay higher.
So you can learn much less than the Machine Learning and Big Data to get an entry into the company and then start mastering complex techologies. Whereas if you are looking for a job in Machine Learning or Big Data, you need to know the subject and products deeper.
So if you want to go with some deep analysis rather than the buzz word, Web Development Career is a better career choice if you are fresh graduate or engineering student looking to get your first job.
