Hi Pradeep,

To answer your question directly, you need to decide for yourself whether you would like to specialize in embedded or  dotnet programming in 2 years time. This happens with a lot of freshers / experienced people alike, creative ideas of creative HR staff. If you wish to specialize in Embedded, the job will be a good training ground based on what you have stated. One word of caution, though - you need to have a good grounding in Electronics to succeed in this area in the long term.However, if dotnet is the goal you need to treat this job as a short-term option, gain programming experience and look out for better options. Having said that, as a fresher you are fortunate that you are getting some degree of programing work first-hand, so do not think that all is lost. Everyone has to start somewhere, and those who succeed in the long term are people who make optimum use of their limited opportunities.
