The BCA degree is the first step if you want to develop a feel for working with IT tools and technologies. You can investigate both theoretical—like data structures and algorithms—and practical—like competitive programming and application development—aspects of the subject.
You will have the opportunity to go more deeply into your chosen interests. Following high school, earning a BCA degree has several advantages, including:

Many MNCs, including Infosys, Oracle, IBM, conduct hiring events for recent BCA grads with the necessary technical abilities.
For their separate IT departments, government organisations including NIC, the Indian Air Force, Navy, and Army also hire computer specialists.
A start-up can be a fantastic option to become your own boss after earning your BCA. One can start many different sorts of enterprises or even work for themselves.
For BCA grads, freelancing or starting a business on their own with a modest investment are viable possibilities. Digital marketing, web development, mobile application development, and other industries allow us this independence.
Teaching is another profession that graduates might pursue. Private tutoring has a lot of potential, and it may also help someone build a foundation for their future. This allows you to choose how many hours you work and how much you accomplish. Work is flexible, allowing for an effective work ethic.
BCA is a foundational course that can assist in establishing a career in a number of related fields. A wide range of job profiles are open. The following are some of the most intriguing ones:

3. Web developer: Web developers create websites and web apps for product companies or web development firms. Working with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Python, AngularJS, and NodeJS is necessary for this. Either a front-end developer or a back-end developer can work here.
After gaining experience, you can advance and work as a full-stack web developer, managing the front- and back-ends of web programmes.
4. Server Administrator: In major organisations, educational institutions, and financial institutions, server administrators are typically needed.
