Hello Friends,
I have masters degree in computers and have 3.7 years exp.In that 2.7 years in c,c++,pro* c,swing,
oracle,informix,linux,sun solaris etc and 1 year in jdk 1.2,ejb,weblogic,jsp,apache/tomcat and also 1 year exp in health care domain and 1 1/2 years in telecom domain. I'm also sun certified java programmer(95%) and in the process of getting sun certified java developer. At present i'm working with Verizon in chennai in India.
I'm not satisfied with the above skills and want to learn some thing more. In your opinion what skills i have to learn for my career growth? Any certifications to pursue?
Thanks in advance,
With Regards,
Sridhar Garimella.

Well, I can't speak to the Indian market, but you have a good set of skills. If you feel weak in any aspect of your programming, work on that.
Otherwise, rather then getting another certification, consider working on your business skills, making you a more well rounded engineer. At least, that's what I'd recommend to someone in US. Again, I don't know the Indian market.

Hi Mark,
First of all thank you very much for your quick and commendable reply.
I dont know US situation but here in India most of the time employer demands multiple skills.
At present in verizon we are using a proprietary middleware called CEM(Common Enterprise Middleware).Till now i haven't worked on any industry standard middlewares like Corba(Orbix or Visibroker),COM/DCOM etc.I'm planning to learn one of those to boost my career. In your opinion whats best one to go for?
Your telling abt business skills. Can you pls elaborate little bit more on this.
Thanks in advance,
With Regards,
Sridhar Garimella.

WRT to which middleware to learn, I wouldn't bother. Any employer who hires me simply because of some particular skill is not some employer I want to work for. Don't misunderstand me, if it's a skill which comes from extensive training or experience, that's fine. For example, if your masters work is relevant, great. If they like you because of 3 years of XML wpork, also great. But if you spent a couple weeks playing around with some program and/or got a certification, personally I think that's a waste of time. I would personally hire the best candidate and not concern myself with the extra 1 month training it takes to get that person up to speed.
As for business skills, consider working on negotiational skills, interpersonal skills, lernng more about marketing, sales, management, requirements gathering, etc.
