Venkatmanohar's Advice on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 :

Dear Ravi,

Thanks for writing to us. As you are already having 3 years 6 months of experience into BPO, I suggest you to continue in the same field and work hard to reach managerial role. BPO is an evergreen market and you can cherish your career. 

Following are the situations you will face if you want to come to IT:

1. You will be treated as fresher in IT side as you don't carry any experience.
2. You need to compete with experienced people and also have to face questions as well as experienced when facing the interview eventhough you don't have any experience.
3. People will ask why you want to move now after 3.6 years.. Answer you can't say that financially you want to grow. If you want to grow technically then you would have tried may be 2 years back itself.

Still if you want to pursue and try out IT then better learn Java and Hadoop (for Analytics). Now the entire market is going digital so would be better to learn analytics related tools

You can do SAP - WebApps course. Currently SAP - Hybris is the one in form in the Industry. If you want to do this you need to learn Java. If you do Java course then you are like an all rounder. If SAP then your scope is limited to SAP based companies only and at the position that you are in it is slightly difficult.

Course + Interest is the Key.. First talk to yourself that in which course you are comfortable and you can do better, then you can go for JAVA, or in C#. For every course you need interest and hard work

All the BEST

Hi Manoher
It is never late in choosing right career at right if you very well know that you are interested in IT-techincal , go for it .. Technical field is always better than BPO in long run. Plan to join Java initially along with any data base course. As this combination is required to work in any IT company at minimal level as developer. By this time you should have a good communication skill , team work and right attitude. This will help you to grow ... work hard and make your dream true :) all the very best :)
