The same stereotype answer:it depends.
It depends on:
1)Your current salary
2)Your technical ability comapared to eompoyees's technical ability at future employer.
3)The project on which you will be hired for.
and many more....

salary range for 1 year java person is around 3.2 to 4.5 (overall in india)
and about pune it is 3 to 3.8

a lot depends on your current salary

SCJP and SCWCD will be definitely added advantage for selection in company

Thanks, Prafulla Patil

Hi all,
I'm currently a Fresher but i've done my SCJP1.4 exams & currently preparing for SCBCD1.3 exams.
Also i've got good knowledge in UML,Design patterns & developing enterprise applications,but no project experience.
Currently i'm pursuing a java course in reputed training institute in Bangalore which gives me placement assistance from reputed MNC's.
They say so that getting a job thro training institute is less purposeful,as they give you only less compensation package compared to others who join thro on-campus or off-campus.
If that is true, what pay package i should expect & what areas i should compensate & what are the gains i should look forward from the interview,which suits my profile i.e. expertise in java.

I wanted to know what is the current industry standard with regard to pay package for freshers, what a fresher with good certifications and knowledge in java , should do in the interview to be put in a java project,what are the compromises he can make,in which aspects he should not compromise, as his future career's advancement in technical growth & salary are based only on previous projects & compensation package.

Looking forward for your advice flows,

It's the weekend. What do you expect?

Plus, it's not particularly nice to hijack someone else's thread with your questions.
I agree. Here's the link:
