Hi All,
I am working as Application Support Engineer for Banking project the technology is Java ,but i am not interested in the support profile.i approached with the manager for the release from the project he refused to release me from the project.i am a Fresher just 3 months over started doing this Support Job,for me i dont have any way to quit the job because i had signed for 2 years bond. Is there any chance for me to get into development after 2 years completion in application support ..i have good knowledge in web development ,kindly assist me further

Welcome to the Ranch

I have removed the text colours because they are difficult for some people to read.

I think you have answered your own question. If your manager won't release you from the bond, can you give notice and leave? Will you get a reference thereafter? Don't know your skills so I don't know whether you can get paid for development after your two years, but you might do well to develop a few little things free of charge so as to keep your hand in and so you can use them as evidence of experience when the bone is completed

Anything is possible with the right know how and skills, but landing your first Java job can be challenging.
