Hi
Thinking about Job switch. Need your inputs on the same from others too.

I have 2 years of experience. Worked on Identity Management project.
Have got SCJP, SCWCD, IBM XML certification.
Have good knowledge in Security domain, SAML specification and Design Pattern.

No real time work experience in the UI development and Back end development.

My role in the current company
1. As I have developed the code for SAML implementation, Play lead role in all the enhancement project related to it.
2. Developer in other security releated project.
3. Take part in code review. have done Design and estimate for medium level project.

Reason for Job switch.
1. Better learning curve.
2. Quick onsite and better pay pack.


I have few doubts like
1. Does the slow down in job market makes my job switch unwise.
2. Does my skill set has good marketabilty.
3. what are the other skill set that i should add to make my resume to look more attractive.
4. What are the offers i can expect. Like pay package and job role.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
