Hi ,
I am working in One of the leading IT Companies in India . I have two years of experience in Java - Struts & Hibernate frameworks . I am currently working in a Domestic project , so there are no options for Onsite and it is difficult to get released from my current project . The framework versions we are using also is very old . Will it be a right Option to switch to some other Good Company with 2 years experience ? If so , how should I prepare myself ?
Please suggest .

Thanks !

Are you still early in your career? If so, you tell potential new companies you worked at XYZ Ltd for two years and are now looking for new opportunities.

I would think, yes, if you have worked well at your present job, it is quite the right thing to start looking for more senior posts elsewhere. Of course things might be different where you are writing from.

If there is no other option(which you are looking for) in your present company, then yes you can look for change.

But talk to your manager about it(that I need more challenging job in new framework and/or onsite opportunity),before to put down your papers or start looking for new job.

Yes . I am just going to complete 2 Years of my IT Career in a couple of months. I have worked well in my current project & leading a team. There is nothing much to learn here , since we keep reworking on existing ones , implementing old versions of framework, though it is a development project.

There are good options in my present Company , provided if I switch to a different project of my interest . Between , it is highly impossible to get out from this project as of now and if I start doing more & more challenging works , then it will turn me out as critical resource . It makes my project release even more tougher . So planning to switch the company. Kindly give me some suggestions to prepare technically & others for switching to a new company.

Keep your fundamentals crisp and clear in the technology you work. There are thousands of those in the market with same technology set, and at a same time, good opportunities are also their.

But why someone should offer you work other that in Struts or Hibernate. Have you learned any other technology, which is latest, and in which you want to work.

Here are tips(http://java-success.blogspot.in/) from long term contributor on Java Ranch(Arun) .

I would say it decision of switching companies in india depends on more then one factors:

Company growth(if you are not getting the kind of work you want in the company and your company has no intention of getting more accounts(some companies don't plan on getting lotss of new accounts but want to satisfy current clients only and not grow or can not grow))....it can be good reason for switch..

Salary...sometime you simply won't get the desired salary until you jump companies

Onsite aspirations(here a article on life of software engineer in US)

etc etc

Ask yourself a few questions like

1. Do you see a future in the current company?
2. How does it align with your career goals?
3. Are you feeling stagnated?
