I have 2.2 years Experience in IT as .net developer(Mindtree Banglore). I got married
I have 2.2 years Experience in IT as .net developer(Mindtree Banglore). I got married in August so had to relocate to Hyderabad. Gap time is almost 8 months. My husband has a market research firm and I was pretty much occupied with it so far. I have been on lookout for opportunities recently in .net. I did not find so far a good company, offering the Remuneration as per Industry Standards. Will 8-9 months long gap to be considered.? Do you suggest if it is better joining a normal firm with less salary and then looking out for opportunities or waiting for the right match. I'm confused regarding this. Please suggest. 28 Feb 2017, 12:05am
8 or 9 months gap should not be concern.
If you are not getting calls for interview, then it might be a good time
review your CV might be your CV would not be conveying your experience and
strengths in a first look.
If you are getting calls and not getting selected, try to reevaluate
yourself from your past interviews, you have given so far and ask these
1. Are those company doing good in technology, you can find some sense
about it from their site or glass door.
Sometime it happens that small companies have their very specific
requirement for some specific domain or specific micro skill, which they
were not finding in you. You should not bother about these companies as not
everyone knows everything.
2. If the company is doing good in technology and they were not specific to
a particular domain, then try figure out the areas of .net or development
from where they have asked you the questions. You will find some pattern
like data structure is now a days being asked or observable patterns are
having more focus.
Now if you know the area from where you have been asked more questions, try
to read more about them before going for next interview.
Not getting selected in interview could be happen with person currently
working as well.
Hope my answer will help you in making right decision, please feel free to
ask any further queries you have for your career growth.
