Getting back on Track in an IT Career
realworldfighter 27 weeks ago
Hello everyone,I completed post graduation from Middlesex university,London in jan,2011. I was able to get an internship as an 'Application Developer (dotnet) ' in sep-2011. However, internship only lasted for three months. Again, I found another work as SEO optimiser that also lasted for six months only. Unfortunately, since then I have been having family issues as my father died back in June-2010 and have been sick. I tried a lot to get back on track and to find work again but never found one. I was working in retail shops only to manage day to day expenses, my family dues and expenses. I was on heavy medicines dosages till dec-2013. Now, I have recovered almost from my illness and have been able to sort out family problems. I want to kick start my career in IT again. I want to know whether 'Web' or 'Windows' which the best option in IT. I am looking for help and honest advice from you guys.Many Thanks in Advance
