Hi,
This is chandra.
looking small favor from ranch people.
Presently I am working for ATT Client in Telecom domain, since we don’t have much work
Management is looking to put me into some other project

i.e Telstra-Australia based client
Here I have two opportunities
1) Business Analyst – it’s more about the implementation of proj
2) Developer – it would be in Spring frame work

So please advice me which role is better.

Thanks,
-Chandra.

Hi "Chandu",

Welcome to the JavaRanch. On your way in, you may not have noticed that we have a policy on screen names here at the ranch. It must consist of a first name, a space, and a valid last name. It must also not be fictitious.

Unfortunately, your screen names do not seem to conform with this policy. Please take a moment to change them.
You can change your screen name here

For me option "1) Business Analyst � it�s more about the implementation of proj" looks good where you can learn technical and management skills

On the face of it, Business Analyst seems to be a better option. However you should find out clearly what does this role actually involve and how does it map to your skillset.

This might come handy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_analyst

Why not try and get the best of both worlds if you can.

Working with Spring will give you experience with a popular and sought after framework and working as a business analyst will enhance your domain knowledge and make you a well rounded professional as opposed to just a techie.

Also see where your passion is and how you would like your career to pan out? If you like getting in to managerial roles then business skills can be very handy.

Hi Folks,

Thanks KJ,Vijay & Arulk for your valuable advices.

I forgot mention about my background:1.5 yr experience in j2ee,scjp1.5.

Yesterday i have discussed with some of my friends who are working on those role in that project.They said as below

Analyst- it's more about client interaction, implementation, more of testing stuff, no more development, it's more preparation of doc's and test scenarios.

Developer- it's in Spring framework, little bit ejb stuff.

I have discussed with some of my friends too. My concern is like since i am very begining of my carrier, i don't feel that go far to technical stuff is not that much good. Analyst is more of domain stuff.

So i am more inclined on Developer role.Because i will learn more of technical stuff. But it is yet to approve from management side. I am waiting for that.

What are your comments on my decision?


Thanks
Chandra.
