HI Guys,
I'm currently working for an MNC (Finance domain). My experience is as mentioned below:

3.5yrs -Java development & support (US client)
2yrs -Integration/configuration management (UK client)
6months -Adobe flex/Java dev and support (UK client)
1yr -Java development & support (Indian clients)

so,
Relevant Java experience is 5yrs.
Overall experience is 7yrs

1.What should i do if i think of Job change and
a. plan to continue in Technical line ? (i prefer)
b. plan to get into Management line ?

2.Which experience does the recruiter considers the most ?
a. if technical, what is expected ?

3.Appreciate any other suggesstions.

Thanks

Honestly speaking it totally depends on what you want. growth is there in both technical as well as management areas. if your passion is on building great applications go for it and if you want to change people's ways of working, inspire them, manage time and resource efficiently and be a a great manager then get into project management. It all depends on what an individual wants!!!
