Hello Friends,

I have total 3.6+ yrs exp in Java/J2EE. Recently (one week back) i have joined a new company, where i have been asked to be on bench for 3 months. 3 months is very long period to be idle so various thoughts are making me nervous:-

1) Should i ask my previous company and join the same? Will this move makes any bad impression of company on me.
2) Should i look for another job?
3) Should i continue and be on bench?

Yours thoughts and comments can help me to take the right step.

You get paid in those three months, right?

If so, wouldn't that be the perfect opportunity to contribute to your favorite open source project or something?

What about learning for a certification in these 3 months or taking a vacation ?

If your preference is location then you should not have been joined in the new company. In my opinion you already joined in the new company and it will be better to give some time to the new company for allocating some work you. It will be a loss for you as well as to your new company, as it involved with some time and cost. Use you bench time for enhancing your skills.

I'm thinking about a new battle cry. Maybe "Not in the face! Not in the face!" Any thoughts tiny ad?
