Y should i hire u?
Being as a ECE student y r u trying for software jobs?...
Please friends don't answer like.... It field is interesting or there are wide opportunities.
Tell them that you are interested in the software field straightaway and thats why you are here. Beside too increase the strength of your answer tell them if you had did any It course or anything you learned through internet about software field.
These will show that you are genuinely interested in the software field and just not here as you are desperately looking for any job.
Show them you are interested.
Let me tell you my own experience I am EC guy and presently have a software developer job with good salary.
They asked me why are you into software field?
I told them that It always intrigued me how certain codes run a system. They may ask you then why do you go for EC branch then you can say fabricate these that family pressure was there or any good reason.
