Hello Sir,
I am vaibhavi sawant with 2+year of experience in dotnet development.
Recently i have joined a software firm .I have got training on sharepoint and wcf.
But now Project Manager is asking me to work PHP technology which i dont know.
I wanted to ask you that Should i go for php project or not?
If i reject this project ,may be PM will take it as a bad remark .
So i am in confused mind state.
Please Guide me how should i approach this problem.
Does switching from one technology (in which i have work experience) to another technology (in which i have work experience) will make any difference on my future career??
Thank you.

Sainath's Advice on Thursday, May 12, 2011 :

Broadly speaking, your thinking is correct. Since you specialize in dotnet working on other technologies does tend to throw you off track and does not contribute much to your career.However, you also need to remember that flatly refusing to work on something which may have a strong impact on the project may not be viewed in the right spirit. You have the right to state your preferred area of interest i.e dotnet to your PM and see if he is willing to consider. Also. if the php related work is for a short period then it is okay. But at the same time you need to be careful not to get involved for too long in this work and totally avoid getting into the situation wherein you are labelled as a php resource. All in all, persuade and negotiate, don't bluntly refuse. Don't allow yourself to stay away from dotnet for too long.
