Hi,

I am looking forward to moving to India very soon. Planning to Chandigarh area.

Can someone help me understand the job opportunities for Java Developers there? Someone told me that in India, no one does coding/development after five years of experience. If you are doing that, there is some problem within you. Is that true? I have a 10 years of development experience.

Please advice.

Thanks so much.

There is something wrong with the person that said that.

I do have to agree that there is an unsaid stigma against developers that keep developing well beyond 6-8 years. However I have seen developers with >14 years exp. It depends on which company you are working for. Most developers with that experience play lead roles on projects.

Are you looking for a specific role / job ?

Chandigarh has few IT companies. Though number of IT companies are growing there, but still opporunities are still less. You can also explore the NCR region(Delhi,Gurgoan and Noida) for job opprtunities. Right now market situtaion is not well here too.

Deepak,

Thanks for your response. Someone actually told me that beyond 5 years, you go to management work. If you still develop/code, you have issues.

I was really upset at that. i am a developer for past 10 years and want to continue in this field.

Also, do you know what skillset they would be looking for? Can I find a job while in New York and then move to Chandigarh? Or do I move to Chandigarh and then find a job there.

Currently, I am employed with a very nice company and have no job risk. But I want to move back for personal reasons.

Thanks again...

The job market is not looking too good but there are pockets of opportunities. It would be better if you can find a job and then leave.

Finding the right one can also be difficult. You might need to look for a while before you accept a job offer.

Check this link link. In addition to Chandigrah,few companies are there in Mohali also. Suggest you to find the job and then move to Chandigrah. Not many big companies are there. And its not true that people with more then 10 years of experience don't do development here. But it is true that might be you will get a role where in addition to development, you have to mentor fellow junior developer. Kind of tech lead profile.

Wish you best of luck in your job search.

Please note that as per Java Ranch policy we cant dicuss about specific companies in forum.

That is not true any more. With 10 years of experience and if you want to be in technical side, companies expects you to play Architect kind of role where you may or may not do coding and doing more code reviews, guiding the junior team members, giving effort estimates, resolving performance related issues etc., But in some product based companies you may end up doing everything as one resource team.

Conclusion : With your experience you can opt to go into management side or technical side.

Good luck
