I have about 7 yrs experience in dotnet. Though i had a break of 2 years i was able to manage to get into development luckily. but again unfortunately i met with an accident and had ankle crack. this did not allow me to move out at all and since i donot have work from home option in my company i had to quit again.
I left my recent past company in feb and now i am totally recovered. but the painful thing is though i clear technical i am not being offered.

advise me how should i approach ... i am being pointed that i had a break before and now 2 months. the previous break was due to my family commitments which is a genuine one for ladies. but again, donot what to say.. i am going frustrated with out a job at home now.

Sheo's Advice on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 :
Dear Samyuktha,

If you are being pointed out for your previous break, there are few options for you in my opinion.

  1. Utilize these time at home to enhance your skills in .NET. Like learn new versions of the technologies that are coming in these days eg. ASP.NET 4.5, ASP.NET MVC 4, C#, SQL Server 2012, Business Intelligence (SSIS, SSRS ...) etc. If you do not know HTML5, CSS3, jQuery then go for it. These are the technologies that are going to rule in coming years. I feel there is still a huge demand of really technical person and if you are able to convince/impress the interviewer with your technical knowledge, no one cares about break. Your break might be an excuse for them to reject you.

    Remember that everyday, every moment you read/practice something, you learn something and this helps you in your career.

  2. If the above option doesn't work for you (however I feel it will work for sure), try to go to the company where you have reference of your friends or relatives.

Good luck and keep learning and sharing!

Sheo Sir,

I have accepted a Corporate Trainer offer thinking that i will have a strong touch with technical side always.
I really donto know if it is wrong or good decision for future.some people say you cannot come back to development anymore. Is it really true.

Hi Samyuktha
I was also travelling in the same boat as you are. Had 6 years of IT experience &now took a break since I was on H4 dependent visa. So now again started my career almost after 2 years of break. In the free time, I kept myself updated with the new technologies like ASP.net MVC, Jquery & Razor.
The only way you can learn new things (while you're at home) is through interacting in forums. Once you are technically strong, you can easily get through the Interviews. I wish you good luck in your Career.

Sheo sir, people like me are very much inspired by the way you respond to the queries. Really like the Dotnetfunda & would like to learn more and more from the experts like you.
