Hi!
I have done my Engg. from ECE in 2010 and have been in that 'core' field of yours for more than 2.5 years. Let me start by saying what exactly comes into your mind when you say ' my engineering field' You did it from ECE so that means you wanna go in Electronics or Telecom. As far as the Electronics field is concerned the opportunities are very limited. You have some semiconductor companies like ' Freescale' and all.. but they have very very limited seats and also the segment has not much to offer. There are some local /Regional companies but that wont take you far . Coming to Telecommunications , this sector has been in slump for about more than three years now. I have been with Telecom Vendors like Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Networks. Cost cutting is on rise and companies are desperately trying to keep them afloat.
So, now that you have the idea of what is going in the market, let me clarify,, Softwares are not bad. You can grow exponentially there if you try. Don't have any preconceived notion about 'my domain' . Keep your all options open.

Hi Varshney, What makes you feel that you need a change? Aren't you liking the job? Blame it on the industry or the education system, people often don't get what they aspire for. But, believe me there's no perfect domain. Companies operate on profits and hence opportunity for research and innovation is limited. Being an under-graduate and being in a job, makes both difficult. There are decent training all over India in ECE domain like VLSI, Embedded Systems etc. Most are priced high and don't guarantee a job, they only support you. And sometimes switching from Software to Hardware domain is a challenge. Best option is to change over to a company that works on something, which interlinks both these domains. For instance, system level programming and design which involves exposure to kernel, HAL and other interfaces between h/w and s/w. Else, if you are interested in research and innovation and if your financials support you, go for higher studies. The best answer can be answered by you yourself. All the best!

Dear Varshney, First of all decide the domain you want to go for. Like if you want to go for VLSI field, which is a booming area at present, you can go for a PG course in VLSI Verification, VLSI Physical Design or VLSI FE/BE courses. Also same for Embedded, WiMax, Networking, Radar Signal Processing etc. Try for a weekend course, so that you dont have to leave your current job. If you'll work hard and make yourself expert in any one domain, you can get a job easily.
Best of Luck.

Hi ,
Switching a domain is little difficult. What I would suggest is along with your job start studying, try to get some mentors help. If possible try to join some weekend short term courses based on your interest like embedded, VLSI,networking..etc. Along with this job start searching for the job of your interest. Don't even miss a small chance also. May be pay scale will be less but believe that you will get a good start somewhere.
Best of luck
Sijo
