Sainath's Advice on Friday, February 22, 2013 :

The main problem in your profile is that though you have some degree of experience and skill and have spent reasonable amount of time in different jobs, no clear direction emerges in your profile. It appears that perhaps you have never paid attention towards chalking out a clear career path for yourself. The same thing will happen when a potential employer looks at your overall profile.
My suggestion is that, first and foremost, you  need to sit back for a day and decide for yourself which area of IT do you wish to work in - .Net,Java, or some other technology.  The problem is, when we start looking at a job only as a source of income (of course, the situation may dictate that we need to think in this fashion) then thinking and strategizing on a career path becomes a secondary thought. But as you can see, this does not work in the long term. Hence I would request you that you first decide which area would you like to work in ? Only after this question has been thought about deeply can we move any further.

I am also a fresher suffered the situation that you are in..But i just concentrated on one technology and got succeeded in it. Dont be disappointed but just keep a goal and try to get it.."failures are stepping stones to success". Try hard and wil get bright future. Technology is not matter but get 100 % grip on what you start.
