Hello All,

I have total IT experience of 2 years and 7 months till now. I had started my career with one of the top MNC in India. I have worked on Java/J2EE application development projects for almost 2.5 years in that company. And I must say that I have developed good interest in Java/J2EE technologies and related frameworks.

Now, I have changed the company and working with another MNC in India itself. Initially I was recruited as a Java/J2EE applications developer, but the current project I am working upon does not involve much technical work related to Java technologies and frameworks. I am mainly involved with functional aspects and co-ordination kind of stuff - like interacting with clients, various stakeholders etc. working on finance domain.

I am not finding the work exciting as I am kind of a technical guy. In a nutshell, I plan to stay in technical side for at least couple of years down the line. I am still updating myself with Java language nuances and frameworks. Now, suppose after another 6-8 months, if I appear for Java/J2EE related interviews for other companies, how will this middle 6-8 months affect my job search, since I would not be working on the technical profile for those many months.

I know the questions seems to be quite personalized, but right now, I am pretty much confused. So any kind of inputs from you guys are appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
