    Hello there,

    If you've been already placed in a software company then in most companies they offer training after joining the company. This is a must in almost all software companies. They train you in the stream that they will put you in. You will have a general training and then a streamlined training.

    Incase you are still interested in taking a training outside then, I suggest that you go for C, C++, Unix, Java, as these are the basic languages that you ought to know in any software company.

    You really cant say under which stream you will be placed in, but in case you want to go into streamlined training then some of the courses can be
    > Informatica BO
    >SAP(has many modules, ABAP is ruling now)
    >Dot Net
    >Core Java, OOPS
    > Android Applications development
    >Teradata(booming at present)

    These are just some of the courses that are available that are evergreen, but they are many more you can choose from. Choose well

    All the best!
