i joined as engineer tech support in Origin infosystems. my qualification is b.e cse 2010 passed out.and i am in chennai. me working now in a client company(tcseserve). they offering package of 5.5k take home. i am scary about my future because not i am worrying about my carrier path. for this job diploma candidates are eligible. i dont know what for i did the b.e. package is also too low. i recently join there. but my coworkers are older people than me. what coworkers is suggesting me is "as you are a fresher you have to move to software job. this field we cant earn more money even we have the experience." i dont know what i have to do.
now what i need to know is if i am moving to the server administration(l2 support) can i earn more money like software developers? i very much like the server administration than software developing. so what i have to do to get good career growth. what is the certification course i need to do.? is one year experience as tech support as acceptable in mnc company s? i think the other sick in this field is only few peoples are in a company are required to maintain the servers in a big company. but more peoples are doing courses related to this career. so what i like to know is really if i follow this career path am i get good profile with good package or not? or otherwise can i change the carrier path?
please give me your valuable reply for those doubts. and tell me what i have to do for get good growth in this field and how many year of experience are need to get into mnc company s.
