Hi everybody,

I am having overall 2.6 yrs of experience in .Net.I am working for a MNC, but want to switch ASAP. I have worked on WPF and WCF for arnd 8 months. Then worked on ASP.Net for around 11 months and recently i was working on a ASP MVC, HTML, CSS, Javascript and Jquery project.C# being the programming language and Database language SQL throughout.

As you can see above i have worked on many technologies, but not on a single in depth. Can you please guide me on:
1. Which technologies should i focus on while preparing for tech interviews?
2. How should i prepare for my tech interviews ?
3. Is it required to have hands on experience for each technology i prepare for?
4. Kindly provide me some reference articles, Q n A for the same.

Deeraj's Advice on Sunday, May 25, 2014 :



1. Which technologies should i focus on while preparing for tech interviews?

You have a blend of unique skill sets that cover, WPF, WCF,ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC which is uncommon and very rare. I would advice, to concentrate on WCF and ASP.NET MVC but not limited to SQL programming while not leaving behind your hands on experience on WPF. This would allow recruiters give preference over other candidates. Also, please keep in mind that technology is changing almost every few months. So, it is essential that your learning journey should continue without interruptions.

2. How should i prepare for my tech interviews ?

Try not stick to just the basics. Keep exploring and implementing advanced concepts. This advice is not just to prepare for the interview, but, how you are different from rest of the engineers. List down all the challenges you did resolve as a programmer while facing an interview.

3. Is it required to have hands on experience for each technology i prepare for?

Advised above

4. Kindly provide me some reference articles, Q n A for the same.

There are lot of websites including this one that has tonnes of information. Lets learn and make people learn through our contributions. You are certainly helping someone in this ocean of .NET technology.

Good Luck!

Cheers,
Dheeraj.
