Kapil's Advice on Saturday, March 27, 2010 :

Ram, You uploaded resume is being screened along with lakhs of other people who are competing for .Net and C#.. The screeing process is very mechanical. They look for keywords like .NEt, C#. Does your resume have this and can show your knowldge for this field. So your resume need to have something extra then other lakhs of resume.

Problem is that you CV looks more suitable for SQL Server  and other SQL jobs. Hence, you areas shortlisted only for it. Look from the angle of recruiter , they think you can valueadd for SQL server and related job becuase of your past expereicne and hence the result.

You have to show your passion for .Net and that should also reflect in resume. You also need to do extra bit , and show miore knowldge  .Net technologies like knowledge of patterns,  Microsoft blogs, frameworks like nunit. Learn more about ADO.Net, ORM and get in new trends. 

Talk upfront with recruiters that you have lot of experience of Sql Server and have excellent knowledge of .Net ADO.Net , queries and related stuff. And you will only work in it. If you can show that you will be able to contribute lot to .Net and extra bit because of your knoweldge of databse, companies will take you in.

Next, be prepared becuase not many chances will be there hence try to prepare before going for interview....

Best of Luck!!!
