Getting a job in product based company with experience in consulting company
I think, I am the best person to answer this. Getting job is not that much difficult. However, get the desired job is very difficult.
Actually, I was in the same situation a year ago (at the time of writing this blog). I was working in Infosys and had issues like not having the required competency level in Microsoft Technologies. Being on support & enhancement projects, we had to work on legacy technologies which were out dated. Clients had a tendency to resist the use of latest technologies as it was causing them extra dollars. So only way to remain updated was to attend sessions or watch tutorials. Finally, after preparing a lot (6 months of preparation Microsoft .NET technologies), I managed to land into PRODUCT based companies. I had two offers at the same time.
How to get job in product based company with experience in consulting company ?
I had actual .NET development experience of less than 2 yrs and faced the interviews for slot of 3-5 yrs of experienced candidates.
So the whole point here is you need to take decision for yourself. Start preparing on which ever technology or profile your need to switch. Set your targets and take efforts to achieve them. You need to prioritize things and work accordingly.
Hope it helps.
