Hello sir,
I am yogesh kadam. I am too much confused about my career.. Please guide me.

Career Plan?

1. I'm confused in my career path. I am not comfortable in current job.

2. I am not sure which field i like.(i feel i can get comfortable in networking/linux/ software testing).

3. After seeing an option of various fields where i can lead my career, i chose.
a. software testing.
b. networking
c. Linux admin

4. I had done CCNA course also, but didn't get any job in core networking as i want.

3. Can i get into Software Testing now.

4. Should i join as a fresher or

It's only you who know what you like do and earn money. All the fields networking, software testing or Telecom, all of them have opportunity. Look at your bosses, how they went upto that point.

I would only suggest that, don't get confused too many choices of career. Focus on what you really like to do.
Probably you can't leave your current job and wait for new one of your choice. But, you can be in your job give extra time to learn skills of your choice. Don't give up on searching for job.
Try to join as fresher if your current work is not relevant. Don't show it on your resume. In interview you can discuss why you want to to switch the job.

This is not easy to switch to another skill set and get the job. But that's what give you satisfaction at workplace. Don't compromise with it.

1. I am really not happy in the job i am doing, should i quit and take time in deciding with other interests.
No. You should NOT quit your job. If you just have to 'think'; take a leave or spend your Sundays thinking about your 'career move'. No need to quit your job just to think about what to do next.

2. Should i take linux or Software Testing as a career.
Yes, if you think software testing is what you'd like to do. There's lot of information available on the Internet about software testing. Read about it and find out if you think it's the domain for you.

3. Can i get into Software Testing now.
Yes, but it's going to be very difficult. You'll need to convince your future employer that you actually can be a good software testing engineer. Perhaps, you'll need to demonstrate it through your contribution to open source projects.

5. Should i do a testing course for a added advantage and move laterally.
That'd typically be decided by the employer. With no prior experience in QA, you're likely to make a start at junior level. If you can build up a portfolio and some experience as an exceptional contributor to open source projects; you'll have some advantage.

Every software institute out there is likely to be 'money minded'. They do their job of teaching students the course contents. You will have to search for a software training institute that has a proven record of placements in your city and get enrolled.
