Rajesh's Advice on Wednesday, April 04, 2012 :
If you are happy and satisfied with your current job then there's no point in shifting to IT for the sake of shifting. Continue and proper in your present job, build skills to further advanced your career and plan your career path accordingly.
Otherwise, if you are on the threshold, on the brink of getting bored, tired of your mundane daily activity, if work feels like a pressure and things like that, then you do have enough technical skills set to shift to IT.
In IT age is not a factor, what matters is passion for working with technology and business. You just need to get the right break.
The good thing is you have build an alternate set of qualifications and capability, so you do have a choice of shifting based on your personal evaluation of your personal/work balance life...
Cheers and all the best.
