Whether to do MBA or not entirely depends on you, if you're inclined towards management. If you're only technically inclined -- then it might make sense to go for SCEA or similar.

But a practical suggestion after working in Indian Software industry for 9 years -- whatever you do, please do it with a job. Indian employers/HR are highly prejudiced guys -- they do not take break in career lightly, especially if you are a man.

take a job as PM/PL/TL and you can do part time MBA fro premier institutes such as Symbiosis, Welingkar, Jamanalal Bajaj or one closer to your place. Or do SCEA or something similar if you want to stay in technical line.

rgds,
- Manish

There is no dearth of offers for experienced people even at this stage in India, I am getting more than 10 calls a day in last week when I made my job profile public for employers & headhunters.

Thanks Manish !!!



Joining service company is ruled out. I do not want to work 12-14 hours and also on most of the weekends and not doing anything for own career.
I would probably choose to join some MNC where I will get time to do MBA/SCEA as a first choice.

I am still thinking on doing one year MBA abroad as a second choice.

I had worked in one big MNC in past. I had seen two guys(both joined same MNC) who did one year management from ISB Hyderbad (full time). They got excellent breaks.

Thank you once again.

Nilesh K Shinde, why on earth are you editing your original post and deleting the text? People coming to this thread later will have no idea what the question was about.

In fact, if it is not restored so that this topic makes sense, it will be deleted.

Something tells me that this may have been the original posters intent -- but since the new forums don't allow the deletion of topics, the question was simply erased.

As far as I remember, it was about whether it was worthwhile going for an MBA when somebody's job was at risk. That is all I can remember, and I might be mistaken.

I've changed my mind about deleting it. I'm going to leave it here as an example of what not to do.

The guy was frustrated ,doing technical work for more than 10 years so he wanted to
move to managerial position and decided to do a MBA.

He had three options :

1)Doing a part-time MBA while doing the job along.
2)Doing one year MBA program from abroad
3)Find a PM/TL role in big MNC

I am not sure about his third option , by the way.

After getting suggestions , he made his mind to find a managerial role in MNC but he still indented
to do MBA from abroad,mentioning that two of his friends done one year MBA program form IBSAT ,
Hyderabad and got good breaks. The guy is currently working in Banglore in JEE technology.

that is was I recollected.

best regards,
omi

The attachment is the google search result!

I'm posting this just for those curious guys that wanted to see the OP. No offenses meant for the Original Poster since he wanted to remove this information.

And how do I insert an image into the post??

Hey Nilesh,

It is ok. Most of us have been through that phase.
My last company was a start up and we were told one fine morning that we had shut down because the VCs had pulled the plug.
We were left jobless, with no severance pay. We also lost the performance bonuses and unclaimed leaves.
Many of us were married, some with kids as well as loans.
Withing a month almost everybody landed a job.

Keep the chin up man and keep the faith.

Any particular reason you say so? I have over 8 yrs of exp in IT and currently working as PM with a very big firm. Pay package is good but I hate the work. Its mostly coordination with different teams etc. I am a certified PMP. Its one thing that I feel that my Project management knowledge is under utilized here. another reason of discontentment is I like working at stuff which is analytical in nature and requires thoroughness. Here its mostly about talking to people and passing on the buck. I do not feel its all worth it. I have been out of touch with technology for 2 -3 yrs now. Thats the reason i am also not able to land myself a job which is more technical in nature. But i strongly feel about getting back to technical side. I find it hard to do it besides regular 9 to 6 job as it takes away most of my time and does not leave me with energy to pursue something on consistent basis. I am seriously considering resigning and updating my java j2ee knowledge for next 3 - 6 months. Before i take that step, I need fellow java ranchers view on what they feel about it. Am i taking a big risk? please share your opinion....thanks!

My suggestion is that you start a new thread to get better responses. This thread seems abandoned by the OP but you are still not allowed to hijack it
