I am B.E. (Computer Science) Graduated in June 2010. I got 72% in 10th, 59% in 12th, and 56% throughout Graduation. Due to this I didn’t get any placement. So I joined NIIT for a Java course due to their placement promise. But my course will complete in mid 2011. Will I get a good job despite my 1 year gap after graduating?
