I'm not curious

Need the career advise

Posted on: 04 June 19

Hi,

I have total 11+ years of exp. I have worked 5 years in Non IT (Business Process) and then moved into IT Production Support (Unix, Sql) in Investement banking domain. I am getting confused about my career path.

I am going to join new organization but its the L1/L2 Support profile; not sure if its going to help me shaping my career . I am willing to learn/adopt new technologies but don\'t have the proper guidance hence getting confused about the career path .

Kindly advise what should i learn and career path should i take forward.

Kind Regards,

Shobhit

    Hi Shobhit,

    If you'd like to move out of the L1/L2 support role, perhaps you can consider either a business analyst or a tester career path as options. Having worked in the business before moving into support, you probably have an excellent understanding of the business domain you're in, both in terms of the business as well as the IT for it. Moving into a testing career path may be a little harder because you'd need to start from the bottom, but it all depends on the organization that you're with and the opportunities they offer you.

    Having spent all that time in support you probably also have an excellent understanding of the life cycle management of change in the systems and environment you work with. Depending on the size of the organization, perhaps you could also think about whether you'd like to pursue a role in change management. Apart from the skills you already have, the role also requires a degree of management and negotiation skills.
