Respectd sir,
This is from a software engineer from India
Right now i'm working as Software engineer ( in Java technology) for a software firm for the past
4 months with which i'm not getting any job satisfaction & also the work pressure is more.
This is my first job in software industry & also i don't think this monotony in work
& work pressure will reduce with time as i'm seeing even 2 or 3 yrs of experienced people
sweating their brain out here for 60 hrs a week.
I'm also not getting comfortable with this job as i need to deliver and perform within a very short
span of time.

The key point to note is that i've had some 1 years of experience in Training industry(training college
students & people in Java Technology) & even while pursuing
my current job i was working as a part-time Java trainer in a training firm.

So, now I want to shift my career as a corporate trainer in software and in HR and personnel.
I want to help people improve their technical and soft skills, help company in their HR policies,
adopting conflict-management policies, & most of all infuence companies in their decision making.
I like travelling a lot & i believe as a corporate trainer i can improve personally and
professionally, i can meet a lot of people and i can be a major factor in their career changes
and i can infuence them.

Now since i want to make a career change i want to weigh my options in that industry.

My qualification:

1) BE in CSE

2) 1 yr of experience as a Java trainer

3) Technical Credentials
I'm a technical geek in Java and i've got all the 3 certifications from sun
1) Sun Certified Java Programmer
2) Sun Certified Business Component Developer
3) Sun Certified Web Component Developer

Also i've been working for 4 months in a good Java product
employing latest Java technologies(JSF,Ajax,Hibernate) in a good software company in Java technology.

4)Skillsets:
I'm at ease in front of large audience,decent communication skill, teaching skill, sincere flair
to understand things to the core & ensuring that others should get what i'm communicating
,inter-personal skills, sense of humour etc.

Now what i want to know is

1) How can i shape myself in this industry & where to start with?

2) what will be my career path here?

3) I don't want to be a hardcore technical corporate trainer, i also want to be a HR personnel corporate
trainer. what can be done on that aspect ?

4) what a career as a corporate trainer entails( will it be possible for me to run a family
after two years having this as my career) and how i can be the best in the industry?

5) List some of the leading training firms in India ?

Your suggestions are welcome.

Regards.

As you know, now a days companies usually hiring people who have ready knowledge on Java and etc technologies. If you want to be real corporate trainer you should possess something new, like for example, I met a couple of corporate trainers who earns more money for training us on Vignette platform.

Being simple J2EE technologist may not help much if you are aspired to be a corporate trainer. I also met a corporate trainer who charges huge amount of money for teaching OOAD/UML. However, he is more experienced (25 years).

So if you want to be a corporate trainer, as per my understanding you should have any of the following:

- Hot skill set like Vignette, Documentum or SAP.
- Years of experience if you are willing to teach OOAD/UML etc. Not just theory, sometimes you should use your experience in order to solve real life business problems as well.

Hope this helps.
