From 2002 I am working in Java, But 5 and 1/2 years in that is Lecturer. But I am strong in Java. Companies/and also myself get confused whether to consider me for programming level (2 or 3 yrs experience category) or consider for Architect/manager level (with my total experience). I did not do any Project Manager Certifications and like due to its cost. In all companies i clear tech. rounds but the problems are with the Next level HR people. where and in what designation, category to keep me? with this confusion simply they reject me.

Tech. panel in interviews explicitly said, "technically sound, knowledge, communication, way of explaining projects, concepts, technologies are much comparable to a senior person, so don't apply for 2, 3 experience category"

what should i do further. Interested to explore much with newer technologies, experts and domains. Awaiting a chance to prove myself with proper recognition.

Please advice

You can apply for the Senior Engineer or Technical lead position depends upon the requirement and the skill set they are asking. Working as a Lecture does not give you the experience as the working professional.
