webketje7621yNot bad at story telling either :)
If you're still in college, take this piece of advice:
1) Just basic coding can get you into service based industry, into companies like TCS, Wipro etc
2) Some skills like Web Dev, App Dev can get you into a better job, say 1.5x the salary of the above mentioned companies.
3) Skills with a sound understanding of Data Structures, Algorithms, OOP etc will get you into a decent product based company, probably with 2x the salary of companies mentioned in point 1.
Do atleast this bit. You'd be proud of your decision.
Now, better you are at DS, Algo the higher you'd start.
4) To get into a really good company with a fat paycheck, 3x to 5x of the companies mentioned in point 1, master competitive programming, be good at DS and Algo... Like really really good at these two.
Always remember, being in a not so good engineering college will deprive you with a lot of opportunities for the 4th category. So atleast prepare yourself for point 3. Once you're certain of 3, shoot for the stars (4)
