I am 33 year old and I have completed my 12th in 1999. I have worked as computer hardware engg for 6 years and worked as customer service executive in bpo for 5 years. I want to change my career where in I do not have to work in night or rotational shifts. My cousin suggested me about .net. I am planning to do .net diploma course from niit Mumbai. Will this get me a job as fresher. Can you please guide me. .net diploma is a 3.5 months fast track course.

Rajesh's Advice on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 :
Hi Prasad,

If you are interested in programming then proceed ahead.  Otherwise, I don't think you have a need to shift to programming from hardware, unless programming is what you absolutely love about.  Give your background from the above post it doesn't seems so.

Even if you complete the course, it will be very difficult to get a job as a fresher, as you are moved too forward in your career and at this age, people look out with some solid programming experience.

But, in case you are lucky and you work hard, and your really like programming, then may be with patience you can make a mark in programming.

What I would rather suggest, is to concentrate in your area of work, or related area, move to server operations, IT infrastructure activity, as that will be more help to you.

All the best but do jump into programming only if you have a very high level of patience and determination and can work hard for atleast 6 months doing 8 hours of programming/development daily.  That can give you some edge.  Otherwise, plan your career around your area of expertise.

Thank you for the advice. I do not want to work in shifts. So thought .net will be good. So .net is difficult to learn? And if I do not get a job as a fresher, working for internship will help me?

.net fresher?
