Want To Make a Switch From Java To Python After 6 Months, Will That Affect My Career?

Question –


I'm Shanmuganathan, a BE computer science student, 2015 passed out & now working as software developer (Java) , I have an 6 month experience in Java but now I want to get a job in Python in Chennai. If I change my profession now, will that affect my career? And needed to know about the python job vacancy in Chennai?

What are things that we need to check before join the organization? As compared to Java , does python have better job opportunity in Chennai or not? I'm having big confusion to make decision on this. Please help me find a good career path.


Expert Advice –

Hi Shanmuganathan,

First of all, I would suggest you to follow a domain which interests you. If your interest lies in Java, then I would suggest 6 months are too less of an experience and switch to another company. Then you should stay in the current organization and learn as much as you can. You are still at a very early stage in your career and making a switch won’t affect your career much at a later stage.

And if your interest lies in Python, then you should look at the job profiles which you are being offered. Whether you would be given more opportunities to learn and gain more expertise in the domain of your interest should be the main priority while joining a new organization. Also the overall package increase that you are getting as compared to your current company.

You can start looking at such opportunities on various job portals, they can specifically tell you about the openings in your city, Chennai. If location is a constraint for you, then should compare the opportunities being offered within Chennai. This is what you should look for while making a switch.

Best Regards and All the best!
