Hi guys i'm new to coderanch. I need some suggestions from you guys. I'm a fresher currently joined in a MNC as product support for a java product. I did a course in Java and i am interested in developing. I really don't know anything about product support. I don't know whether it is good for my career and whether it has some scope. So please help me out here guys. Looking forward for your suggestions. Its an urgent situation.
If you would rather be doing product development, then it would be worthwhile seeking out development opportunities for yourself. Perhaps there are avenues you can pursue within your current company? Perhaps you can look at other companies in your local area? A product support role is still good experience for moving into development as you're still working with and writing code, but if you don't enjoy it and would prefer something else then go for it.

It's urgent for you and you alone. Stating this just makes your post come across as pushy which will often reduce the chances of you getting a timely and quality response.
Product support does have pathways into Product management, but it's rather difficult. You will probably need to become a business analyst first. If you want to get into development, you should get a development job. Product support doesn't improve your development skills.
