Kapil's Advice on Thursday, July 22, 2010 :
If you want to remain in techincal field, you should go in for MBA IT. MBA HR would be the case if you want to shift on to HR and Recruitment.
After the MBA you should have propects of managent positions in IT companies as starting point of Project management.
You are right companies will treat you as fresher because your experience is too less to matter and also it is from a small company where you would not have used SDLC processes, i presume. Later after experince this will add-on to your total experience and will not go waste.
This would also help you in your interviews to tackle any techincal questions and you would have edge over your freshers friends.
And also during your job, this technical experience will give insight of technical aspects of the project and must make you a good project manager.
