Thanks all for your valuable input. About myself, I am now planning to move towards management. I'll not be able to take up fulltime MBA due to personal reasons so will have to go for part time or distance.

Recently CTS replied to my application saying they cannot consider my profile as I am B.com graduate(Hope Admin will allow this message). Even many of my friends had the same opinion that after few years of experience what really matters is the experience and not your education background. But I didn't see the case.

As Ravi mentioned few names of the institue like IIM, JBIMS, Narsee Monjee, Symbiosis, XLRI, etc. do they offer distance learning?


Thanks again,

Thanks Ravi,
It seems with so many years of experience MBA is the better option. I will need to research some good institutes for MBA.

Hi everyone,

It seems I have lot of questions these days for the forum. I am a B.com graduate with a part time diploma in Software from institute called Aptech Computers.

I have total of 8+ (close to 9 years) of experience in IT and presently working with one of the top 4 Indian IT company.

Problem is if I try to change my job, many companies do not consider my profile because I am a graduate in commerce. Even my experience doesn't count for them.

I want to know how can I enhance my education. I wanted to try part time or distant learning MBA but not sure how that will help me.

Appreciate any inputs/suggestions on this please.

Thanks,

Hi,

I recently posted my resume to Indian job sites like Naukri.com, MonsterIndia and timesjobs. I now receive on an average 18-20 emails everyday from different consultants.

Initially I replied to few of them but never heard back from any, except for 2-3 like Mafoi, Sampoorna.

I want to know from where I can get a list of genuine consultants?


Thanks,

2. Cost of living in Bangalore ?
3. What salary should I expect for 8.5 years of experience in lead role

Appreciate some quick replies

Thanks a lot

Guys,

I have a small question. I have been asked by a company on my salary expectations. Please suggest some figures. I am little confused as I am changing the company after a period of 6.5 years. Below are the details:

Total experience: 8.5 years
Current salary: INR 7 lacs (its low because i have been working too long for the same co.)
New job location: Pune
Role: Project Manager

Please give me some suggestions as to what should I quote when replying for expected salary.

Thanks in Advance

Thanks,
