I moved a lot early in my career. Then I made my way to a large insurance company - doing data entry to start. But I quickly moved into more of a programming and problem solving role. But I was NOT in the I.T. department.
I think that a lot of I.T. newbies (or freshers as I see mentioned here) believe I.T. careers begin and end in the I.T. department. Many mid-sized companies don't have such a department. The roles become very nebulous and open.
There is a good case to be made that, if you want to gain knowledge and confidence quickly, a large I.T. department might be the WORST place for this to occur. Often the work is too highly regimented - you do your tasks, someone else does their tasks and you never cross pollinate those skills.
Does that help at all?

Yes Mathew, what you mentioned is correct, If we start our career in small organization then we can expose with all the roles and able to learn step by step.
