I have been working as Developer since 2003. Having 11+ years of professional experience, currently working in an IT service major as a Tech Lead.
I see ASP.NET/WCF, C# as my core skills.
But I worked in various technologies like emVC++, VC++ MFC COM, Informatica ETL and BackBase UI (HTML-CSS-jQuery).
I also worked in BizTalk 2006 and SharePoint 2007, 6 - 9 months each.
I have worked as an associate for an architect; have done low-level design and technical documentation.
I am not very much interested in management activities.
I am looking for any technical role in .NET/Web technology.
But, I am not getting much calls/offers and really confused about my career.
Did not do any certification.
I prefer to be an SME / Leave Dev / Tech Arch role.
I got some interest over ITIL Cert.
Is there any other choice for me?
Thanks in advance.
Manohar's Advice on Friday, November 14, 2014 :
You have bagged good number of skillset thus far in your career. If you are not interested into management then focus more on technical stuff and become an architect. Try to improve your core skills and enhance them in such a way that people look at you as an architect. Start treating yourself as an architect in your current project and try to add value. With your other skillset definitely its an advantage for you.
Also try to write some certifications in .NET or where your strenghts.. it proves that you have design skills and can go to next level.
Hope this helps.
