Switching from Electrical to Software Engineering

Hello mam. I have done my b.tech. in electrical engineering from India, but I want to go in the software field. I haven't found electrical engineering to be interesting. Please suggest ways to move into the software field. I am really tensed. Please help me out. Hoping for a positive reply.

Dear Rakshita,

You probably took some programming classes for you EE degree.  I would suggest you brush up on your programming skills.  Then look for jobs you might qualify for and apply.  Usually job descriptions will list the languages they want you to have experience with, and you'll need to figure out how to convince an employer that your background is a suitable match. Getting the degree is only the first step.  Showing that you can handle the work is the second.  Good luck!
