Sheo's Advice on Sunday, November 29, 2015 :
Dear Jainneha,

Thanks for asking this question openly, the question is very broad so I would try to answer as much as I can based on what I understood from your question.

As you have already worked for about 6 years in .NET so you have handsome experience. A drastic change in your career path will lead to become freshers in that field for you. So i would suggest to remain in that field however if you are sure you can't manage, read below.

As you said that you are not very good in coding, you may shift into following areas in the IT

  1. Business Intelligence - do not need a lot of coding skills however analytical and other type of skills are required
  2. Management - Lead or manager (if you are good in management, you can try your luck here). Read this career advice post - http://www.dotnetfunda.com/advices/show/371/dot-net-guy-having-7-years-of-development-exp and http://www.dotnetfunda.com/advices/show/54/which-is-best-either-technical-or-management-side-for-career-growth-in
  3. HR - pure non technical
  4. IT support - can learn hardware, networking, software installation and management
Thanks and hope this will help you. Good luck.

First of all, why you want to shift ? Any Technical Issues or have interest in any other domain?

I think PMO would be a option. As i have pretty good communication skills.
But here also i am confused that my technical knowldge and 6 yrs experiecne would be ruined.

Yea . Thats true JainNeha . I think you have a potential to handle the projects management skills. so try to take the responsiblities of PMO. For that you have to make sure that your management persons get noticed to your deeds or you can switch to another company. The demerit is that your C# knowledge and hand on ASP .net n C# will get affected. Make sure you understand the responsibilities of Project Management.

And if you have switched to PMO then please share your experiences, so we all guys can get the tips(smiling)

God Bless You
All the best.

I will suggest you to become either a Trainer or switch to UI designer, a guy with coding knowledge for UI team is really worth.
