Hi,

Apologies if this is not the right place to ask for this suggestion.

I am a biomedical engineer residing in India,passed out in 2008 and working since then in a biomedical firm as application engineer.This job requires me to travel a lot which sort of proving to be a bit difficult.

I would want your suggestions if I can move to IT industry with my current non IT profile.I thought I would be considered a fresher but I am not sure if any of the companies still recruit 2008 pass outs as fresher.


Please advice

Welcome to the Ranch

What degree have you got? What computing and programming experience do you have? Can you go anywhere for additional training? Or a computing degree?
We would need to know all that, and probably more, before making sensible suggestions.

And I think this discussion would sit better on a different forum, so I shall move it.

Thanks Ritchie !

I have an engineering degree (B-tech) in Biomedical Engineering.I had openings in several IT firms when I passed out but opted for my core area,i.e biomedical.But the sort of work I am experiencing here involves lot of travelling,I have been through lot of travelling already and it has become too much for my liking.

So I thought If I could 'restart' my career in IT as a fresher.

I have basic computing/C++ knowledge that was part of my engineering.but I am afraid it is not something to write home about.But my computer skills were not there when I got the joining of couple of IT biggies either when I completed engineering, being from a different engineering background.

but the problem is being a fresh graduate no one searched for experience then,but now they do
