Hi,

I have got a overall 3yrs experience and currently working in a top most company of India. Earlier for 2.3 yrs i worked in core java and joined this top most company 6 months back because i wanted to start career in J2EE. But still i have not been assigned any project and meanwhile i completed 2 certifications(SCJP & SCWCD).
I need suggestion for
1. Should i look for other company?
2. Would the bench period affect while looking for a new job?
3. Or should i stay in the same company and wait for a project to be assigned to me?

Your suggestions will be valuable for me.

I suggest you to talk with your PM/HR regarding the project. 6 months is quite long period for not having work. If you still face same situation you better to change the company. Sitting on bench you wont gain anything.

Yes your bench period will affect your resume. So try doing some constructive work by involving any of current projects going on.

Good Luck

Thanks KJ Reddy

One more query.
If I switch the company will i get a job in J2EE or they
will offer me a job only in Core java as i dont have any experience on
J2EE?

Note: I have just done certification in SCWCD but dont have experience
in it?

If you switch company there will no guarantee that you will get a J2EE project . Even if you are working in J2EE project you may or may not get chance to work in core J2EE work.

But you can confirm in which project you are going to work before you join other company. As you have knowledge of J2EE you can tell the HR that you want to work in J2EE work. Tell them what you are looking before you join new company.

What if HR says first "we have exciting mission critical J2EE project" and later they ditch you keeping you again on bench?

If you have that doubt then ask your HR manager that you want to talk with your future Project Manager and get the details about project from Project Manager. I did this whenever I changed the company It worked for me.
