Sheo's Advice on Wednesday, October 30, 2013 :

Dear Asutosha,

Thanks for writing to us. In general, the demand of Desktop application is lesser than Web application. Be it for desktop or mobile devices so I would recommend increasing your exposure in Web application.

In the .NET Technology, I would recommend you to focus more on ASP.NET MVC, C#, WCF, SQL Server more than VB or VB.NET. Also focus more on client side technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, jQuery and other recent plug ins like Knockout.js etc. Recent days application uses more on client side technologies so focussing on these will be really helpful.

Learning all at once from where you are will be a touch task so take one by one and try to grasp as much as you can in that technologies. 

As you belong to a small company so you have an advantage of knowing everything in the software life cycle so take advantage of that and highlight that in your resume. Smaller company doesn't always means less opportunity or money, it all depends on how much knowledge and experience you have. Knowledge and experience is always respected, be it small or bigger companies.

Sometimes, the need may be to clear the Interviews so go through the Interview section of DotNetFunda.com - http://www.dotnetfunda.com/interviews/, read and understand them. However, interview questions might only be helpful to get the job in the initial stages, to survive in the job you would really require knowledge so your focus should be get as much knowledge as you can.

Hope I have covered all aspects of your question; still if you have any question, please feel free to respond.
