Job Related Confusion

hi,
after Long time posting something.
Actually i joined wipro technologies on 17th Jan 2011. Got 3 months initial training on .Net . after that due to shortage of project i was on bench for 2-3 months and after that got a telecom project (Intelligence network of AIRCEL). Here in this project i just used to use ready made unix scripts i.e its just a support kind of project with shifts too.. Now i am bored of it and worried about my future. Can i switch another company with new technology (like java , .net etc). do they treat me as fresher inspite of having 1.5 yrs of exp? and what about package(expecting increment ) ?

first i would like to ask you are you not satisfied with .net platform?and ofcourse you will be considered as a fresher,most probably when you switch to any other technology .Rather try something better in .net platform in some other company

I just checked your profile and found out that you joined us on Apr 30, 2010! Wow! Welcome back after a long time and thank you for remembering us. We hope you'll be active again.

There's no reason for any company to treat you as a 'fresher' (or an engineer with no real work experience). It's not your fault that your present employer does not have good projects to offer to you. Before switching your job; I'd recommend you to spend some time identifying and brushing up your knowledge on the languages, tools & technologies you are interested in. Recruiters would typically know what kind of work is offered in other companies and are willing to consider applications based on 'potential' of the candidate to perform.

Give yourself a time of 2-3 months and prepare on the technologies you are currently working on and be excellent in them (involves lot of self-study; but it'll be worth it at the end). Start applying for job in the companies of your choice.

Regarding the package; you should expect the industry average increment. You should also consider joining a less famous company that offers you some real work & challenges. It'd be better for your career in the longer run. All the best and keep us posted about your decisions.

You mean to say prepare myself to technology i am currently working (i.e telecom support)on or on the technology i wish to switch into (i.e development).?

Telecom support isn't a technology. But you can definitely work on mastering UNIX so that if your future employer checks your knowledge of UNIX you shouldn't disappoint them. You could even brush up your skills on .Net and work on the technology that you wish to switch to.

You mean to say that brush the skills of UNIX (so that new recruiter can test my knowledge of my past experience) and learn skills of language i wish to switch into.
is it right?
23 Feb 2012
Yes, that's right.

Our Computer Science & IT Engineering section is the best resource for all things CS/IT/Networking et al. UNIX is vast and since you're using UNIX; you should at least know the commands for regular tasks and the scripts that you use. If you have specific questions about UNIX, ask in CS IT section.

i got the point dear as i too have passed by the same situation .In such cases company ignore your previous work experience if you are going to join something other than previous technology like you had experience in .net and wish to switch to java or unix ,so in view of a company your experience in unix is zero or negligible .Although you need to prepare yourself upto the mark that the new technology requires but still company says having experience in same technology is considered as work experience else they need to tech you from the beginning.So tell me why thy consider your previous experience since it is useless for them ?why do they consider your experience in java when your previous job was in .net?

i suggest you go in .net in depth with whole heart seriously .See, one company dont provide you the opportunity you expect doesn't mean the world ends there.Beyond the whole world is full of opportunity .Go with .net , with your experience in some other company . As you said you worked with wipro ,so definitely a positive impact would be on your knowledge & value .In case you find interest in some other technology ,it would be difficult to expect such package (in terms of salary) as you would be fresher then .So wisdom is to stay in .net ,expose your skills wherever you may go give your best . 👍
