I have more than 2 years of experience in one of the Indian MNCs. For first year I have worked on a Core Java
for a telecom client. For the next year I worked on a production support (L2 support) project on J2EE
technology for a banking client. Now I have been assigned another support project for a retail client based on TIBCO technologies.
I want to move to Java Development now. Getting released from current assignment seems difficult. So the only option left is company switch, but I am afraid that with one year of maintenance and one year of support experience whether it would be possible for me to get a Java Development project outside.
I am pretty good in Core Java and like programming a lot. I am preparing for SCJP
1.6 and hope to clear it by next month.
Kindly suggest me what are my chances to get a Java Development project outside and what else can I do to incarease my chances for same. Also I would like to know what are career growth chances as a support proffessional as compared to Development Proffessional.
