Rama asked

Hi Mehnaz. Thanks a lot for ur inputs and suggestions. I am sorry that I couldn't download my resume from my gmail. Will send u very soon after creating new one. But will highlight main points here. I have 2.9 yrs of development exp In java/j2ee from GE healthcare,blore from 2006-2009. I resigned the job in 2009 to take care of my kids. Now I'm ready to take up my career further and open to new challenges preferable in IT field again. But due to my long gap I heard from sources that chances r very less to restart my career. I am open to other non technical positions also. But could u plz clear me these queries. 1.iam an MCA, so To take up as HR ,do I need to be Mba ? 2. Since I don't have any hands-on experience in non technical positions.,will I be considered for those as a fresher with gap 3.does freelancing work be considered by corporate world to give job as a regular employee? 4. Since my final aim is to get a regular employment in companies, what r my chances and how do I proceed with such a huge gap?

Hello Rama,\n\nLet me answer all your queries one by one\n\n1.iam an MCA, so To take up as HR ,do I need to be MBA ?\nAnswer Not necessarily , but my advice is ,pursue career on your skills\nand strengths , which will help you in the long run\nDo not think , if technically you wont get a job , shifting to a non tech\njob would help .\n If you have good experience , regardless of the gap , focus on\nbuilding and honing your skills\nLearn about the latest technologies and try to take up a course in it\nAccordingly apply to technical jobs , which support your previous technical\nexpereince and the current course you may have learned\nExample : you are aware of JAVA , you can now opt for Angular JS or\nsomething new and latest in JAVA\nwhich will definitely fetch you a very good job .\n\n\n2. Since I don't have any handson experience in non technical\npositions.,will I be considered for those as a fresher with gap?\nYes , people often with non tech experience may get into HR roles or other\nadmin roles , but they have to start from the beginning and if you\nevaluate yourself from Recruiter's perspective , your resume may look like\na mix of tech and non tech ,fitting nowhere .\nFocus on specializing in technologies\n\nMy advice is not to venture into fields ,which do not support your skill\nand what you want to do .\nDo not think HR or admin or non tech jobs are easy , or are good paying\njobs, the reality is they are not\nand have their own set of challenges in it\n\n3.does freelancing work be considered by corporate world to give job as a\nregular employee?\n\nNo , these days you will find lot of people doing freelancing\n,especially people from the IT world and it is absolutely normal to do so\nThis is called Gig Economy\nSo even if you freelance today , later on you may get a corporate job as a\nregular employee\nthe chances are high ,so don't worry\n\n\n4. Since my final aim is to get a regular employment in companies, what r\nmy chances and how do I proceed with such a huge gap?\n\nThe best approach to find a good job , and a job which you can make a\ncareer out of it should be your aim\nStep 1 Research or find out about the latest technologies in JAVA and\nthe career prospects\nStep 2 Find out a good institute to do the course ,which may also offer\nplacement\nStep 3 Invest and learn the new technologies\nStep 4 in the interim ,connect and check within your friends and network\nabout the latest technologies\nStep 5 Once you successfully obtain your relevant certificates on the\nlatest technologies , look for jobs both permanent and freelancing and I'm\nsure you will definitely find great openings\n\ncheck this links\n\nhttp://blog.takipi.com/7newtoolsjavadevelopersshouldknow/\nhttp://www.fromdev.com/2016/12/whatislatesttechnologyinjava.html\nhttps://www.naukri.com/javaj2eedeveloperjobs\nhttps://www.naukri.com/javaj2eejobs\nhttp://www.zyoin.com/indianindustryfuturejavajavajobs/\n\n\nBest Regards,\nMehnaz Amjad *PMP,SHRM SCP ,ITILv3*\nPh :+91 9177400155\n\n\n

23 Apr 2017, 05:41pm
Hello Sloka ,\n\nSince you hold a MBA degree , you already have a Masters's qualification\n\nNow on to your Job search which you want on flexible timings , understand\nflexi timings concept of corporates\nFlexi timings is different from work from home\nFlexi timings means , you have flexibility to come and go at your own\nconvenience but one has to clock in 8 hrs of work every single day , the\nflexibility is about no set schedule\nSo be clear wether you need flexi timings or Work from Home , since you are\nmarried with Kids\n\nWith MBA as a qualification , but since you have a long gap ,you can do the\nfollowing\n\n1.Opt for Teaching ,but you may need a B.Ed other than the MBA to do so ,\nthis is an additional course you can enroll in ,and you may find good\noffers\n\n2.You can also go for recruitment as an MBA , there is a huge need of\nfreelance recruiters and you can take it up , it is more flexible as well\n\nhttps://www.naukri.com/freelancerecruiterjobs\n\nThis one I found on LinkedIN , do send in your resume to the given email\naddress\nRecruiters needed . Full time and Work From Home .IT and NON IT .\nExperience 16yrs . Fulltime Time / part time / work from home / freelance.\nSalary : 2045 K CTC . Immediate Need .
