Hi Ranchers,

I have two offer and my experience around 5 years ( 1.5 year in healthcare domain with java/j2ee and remaining in telecom domain with NMS,Java,XML)
One offer is on Insurance domain(Service based MNC company) using J2EE another one is same telecom domain with NMS, JAVA, Swing.(Mid level Service company provides offshore product development for product company).

Salary - second one is higher than the first one.

I am in bit confusion( ) to choose right job to my career.
Could you please some one help me to choose the company better for my career. Will it be good to work in same domain or changing the domain is better? Is it good to choose product based one or project based one with my 5 year experience?

Thanks
Shan

Which domain do you like more? Which set of technologies do you like using more?

Is Salary even an issue? If so, how much?

A "career" is last a very looooong time. Don't you want to decide based on your priorities? What do you enjoy doing? What do you hate doing? Where are your interests? etc. There is no right answer here.
