Hai Ranchers,
I have recently joined an MNC-CMM Level5 (in january).Actually I have experience in java/J2EE. I have nearly 3 years of exp. This is my third company. The problem is I am forcibly placed in testing project. Now I am involved in system testing. But I want to go for J2EE development again. They may not release me upto 6 months from the current testing project. Can anyone please suggest me a better solution for my problem. Shall I change my company or any other suggestion.
Thanks in advance.
Venkatesh.

Hi Venkatesh,

Solution would be look out for a change.

before that u mentioned ur 3yrs experiance u changed 3 companies i think u r profile in the long run would be problem to u

but honestly i feel u be careful bfore changing to other company as u would face more or less likely the same problem u mentioned this is problem prevailing Big Companies

-- Take u r time to think before looking for a change

I think you must state your problem to your project manager and then only take any decision.

What you will do if you are assigned testing job in your new company also? So changing job do not solve your problem. If you think changing job is the solution then you will end up with this wherever you go.

Explain your management that previously you worked in Java/J2EE and you are interested to work in that area, explain them that your skills and experience are not getting utlized in your current project. Give them some time to work on your problems. 6 months is not a long period and if you need to work in current project for 6 months just keep and cool and proof your self so that you can demand for better job.


Good luck

nearly 3 yrs of work experience and u r in ur 3rd company already....and u wanna another change?? dude...slow down...think abt what u wanna do...as ppl have already suggested have a talk with your Project Manager / an Ombudsman in your company (if you have one)....so many switches certainly do not look good in your resume!

Thank you for your valuable suggestions.
I talked with PM regarding this and he said that I would be given a project for maintainance and support. It is to be handled by me individually. Shall I agree for that.
Thanks & Regards,
Venkatesh
