    You need to select based on your interest. Money is also an important factor but it is not the most important factor. Job satisfaction is what counts. As part of Software Testing you will be into testing various programs. The Networking job profile is more into the hardware side. Both the profiles are different but the scope for both is similar. So you need to decide whether you are interested in software or the hardware side. Also select a firm where you feel there is growth in terms in career and also job satisfaction. Another way in which you can decide is based on which subject you performed well during your studies.

    You can go for any of the jobs. It totally depends up on the interest and area you want to develop a career. Both the jobs are in relation with the subject you have studied. Both software testing and networking, has to go hand in hand. It is a good thing that you have two excellent opportunities to choose from. In my opinion, you must make a choice based on your preference. The pay package is also different in both. You should accept a job that will require all feature of your knowledge.

    B.Tech (Bachelor's in Technology) in Computer Science engineering branch provides very good opportunities in technological and software firms. Both, Software testing as well as ITES (Information Technology Enabled Services) in Networking, have good prospects ahead. Software testing is the last step of software development (i.e., after analysis, design and coding). Software testing involves operations such as program debugging, error reporting, error resolutions, improved adaptations etc. It is completely programming-required field. While ITES with networking is hardware as well as software related field which involves development of sustainable services softwares of Information technology. It is a core programming field. If you have good programming skills, then you should go for the ITES with networking sector and this field will provide you with a greater career opportunities. You should decide which field to choose as per your interests. Also look for the backgrounds of both the companies which are offering you job offers. Go for the company which has a better place and good past record in the IT market.
    all the best!!

    Many Privates companies are looking for Software engineering as well as Networking engineer.
    Both field are good and both have greater chance of good job.
    Today has much demand of Software engineer so i think you should go with Software field.

    Dear,

    I can not see much difference in both the salary packages which you are offered, so I would suggest you analyse and match both the jobs with your career interest, skills and knowledge, and go for the job which you think you can better perform, apart from this also see both the company profile and growth prospects in both the companies, this will give you an idea which job would be best for you.
    In terms of job, both jobs have a good scope.

    All the best.

    friend,

    Both the jobs are good and This can be your turning point in your life if you select the best among
    them so just think about your career interest and skills and knowledge and then choose the best among them for yourself.

    In my point of view in software testing you will not be given softwares to develop ,you will check them
    that they are working correctly or not and is there any need of change in sofware quality.You will debug the errors.

    And in networking you will be involved in transmission of packets and it can be an interesting job.
    so just thick about you interests and go for the one which you think is best for you.

    My friend both have a equal oppurtunity in the present era. As both are a part of computer technology. As you know that the computer is a field required everywhere in every area so are the jobs in it.
    Let me tell you that software testing is more paid type job with sofware as the major part. You get placed in top IT companies for checking their softwares and tools. If you want an experience then try some of the one that google provide and check out.
    On other side networking is a field which is more hardware oriented but software also a little bit.

    So its you who have to choose based on interest and the companies hiring you after this.
    Good luck.

    it is good to be apart of Software Testing in it sector as it can provide a good career and you can also get a good salary in some good MNCs inside india and outside of it.
    but it is not bad to be in Networking but it has less scope than Software Testing.

    Hope both have its own path in career development ,
    If we are more interested in Networking we have better option like System administration ,data flow control, etc.
    We have options in writing for the certification courses like CCNA ,CCNP etc

    I think that depends much on your intrest.
    If you select a field of your intrest then you will
    work with full involvement and then you will perform well.
    This will lead to growth and more opportunities in more
    reputed organisations and high salaries.
    So you really need to identify your competency in
    both the fields and select the one in which you are or will
    be more competent.
    Personally i think software testing is a better option then
    IT- Networking.

    Hi Friend,

    Basically choice of your carrier field will depends on your interest , But networking field is more expanding and reliable carrier field . As today requirement of networks and their capacity is increasing rapidly, thier is great need of networking professionals in market. Also your package will also increase quickly if you will perform well in industry.
    After getting some experience of two or three years you will be able to earn good money.

    Completing B.Tech-Bachelor in Tech. in CS branch gives a lot of job opportunities in todays IT world.
    Many companies have set up their centres in india and recruiting many CS/IT branch professionals these days.
    Testing as compared to Networking is much better option as the avilability of testers in comparison to the actual demand is less.
    Good onsite opportunities with a good package is available for testers.
    So its better to opt for testing field.
    All the best!

    Re: Which job profile is good for my career - Software Testing or Networking (ITES)?

    In my opinion , both of the options that are Networking(ITES) and Software testing have a huge potential to become a great career option. So, you can opt for either of the above options depending on your personal interests as well as potential to deal with the problems arising in the course of time.

    You can choose Software testing if you are interested in developing and analyzing software's developed by other people. Software testing is suitable for people who are really interested in different and various kinds of software's and they are able to analyze different kind of features in different kind of softwares.So, you can go for this job if you have an edge for different kind of software and are able to test different kind of softwares based on a number of characteristics and can easily point out the differences in software of the same type.

    On the other hand, You can also opt for a job in the field of Networking , if you are able to detect discrepancies in a network and are able to find out the reasons for the discrepancies . So, if you have a great knowledge about networking, you can opt for a job in this field. Networking is a field which is suitable for candidates having a good knowledge about both physical as well as computerized connection of devices such as modems, computers, printers , scanners, etc.It means a candidate should have knowledge about not only computers , but also other devices for scanners as usually all these are also connected in a network.You should also have knowledge about internal infrastructure of the various devices.

    Both are good having lot of future scope but interest should be necessary. Software Testing or Networking (ITES) needs very hard work if you can do then go for these sides. But when we compare among these then according to my knowledge Software Testing will be good for you. In this side only very high knowledge candidates are selected so you have good chance.

    Better to select software testing, u didnt face networking troubleshooting. Networking is very tough to handle. So many industries prefer only who knows very well about firewall, security,so on......

    hi friend,
    networking is better career than testing.

    COZ there is less growth in testing field.
    u have a simple work to test the software on the test cases already designed by ur company.
    u will get bore after sumtym.

    but networking career has a lot of oppotunities.
    u can go for further certification in your courses. like CCIE,CCNA, CCNP.
    they will boost ur career.
    thanx
