Venkatmanohar's Advice on Wednesday, November 19, 2014 :
Dear Divakar,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. What if your ambition... You want to become a manager or an architect..

Considering your experience and the current role that you are doing it would be good you focus to shape your career to become an architect in next two years. Focus on the latest technologies in the streams that you have experience on and take the project to a next level. To become an architect, start doing some value addition in your current project on improving the performance, quality and architect it for next 10 years etc considering the business need. This will enable you to focus and plan for next 2 years to become an architect.

Wishing you the very best.
