Hi,

I have 2.4 years of exp in MNC company (Banglore, India.), currently working as Front End Developer. I want to change the company as I am getting very less package (My juniors are getting more than us coz of stupid organization rules ) and I want to work on Java/JSP/Servlets not on JSP,CSS and HTML. And there are not processing my VISA also. I am fed up with this company. I have done my certification in Java (SCJP 1.4 - 85%). But I am facing very difficult to clear an interview as they will be asking about EJB, Structs, JDBC and IO/AWT in which I have no experience.

I have basic knowlegde of Core Java (SCJP objectives) and JSP/Servlets. Cant I get job only on these technologies in bigger/good company.

I would like shift myself to good organization which pays more and has good environment.

Please,can anyone from this group help me out for interview preparation/ job hunt hints. It will be very useful for me as I don't have any references. I would appreciate your help on this.

HI Geetha,

As you already have some knowledge in Java, JSP, Servlets, you better add Struts to your list by preparing it. With this combination you can get a job as a web developer.

You should prepare EJB, XML, Hibernate etc. technologies in order to get into good company, no shortcuts for success.

All the best,
-- Surya

Thanks for replying But I think it will take time to learn All new technologies. I want to change the company asap.

The people with 2+years experience (joined as ELTs) are almost at the same payscale as freshers joining now while the industry standards are double. It is just pathetic

Don't switch just because you want to get rid of your company, otherwise you will regret your decision in future. Taking a wise decision always take time, be patient and wait for best opportunity. Otherwise you may feel same in your next company.

cheers,
Rish

I agree with u Rish. I checked all posibolities in my current company. I have no future in this company. When I enquired about my VISA, they said it is still in process, my junior who applied after me got PAI date I dindn't get that. When I asked for promotion on coming appraisal my manager told me that this company is not his fathers company to promise me. I even enquired with HR, but is of no use. They are very least bother abut our bacth who joined in April 2004. We are getting so less as freshers.

And if get promotion in next year April 2007, even freshers who joined in 2005 are eligible for the same. Again no difference in me and freshers.

So, I feel it is better to switch. I know in new company, scenario will be same but atleast I will be getting good salary for my experince.

Somebody doesnt recognize your talent then the other person will. Dont fret. I suggest not to think more and make a move for a job change. You do not deserve this after serving the company for such a long time
