Hi Geet,

I can understand what you going through at the moment. Sometimes being in a field for a long time brings in Saturation and thats the time most of us feel a little lost. Hope this is what is happening with you
But this does not mean you shift fields. But if you wish to pursue another career, there would be no issue, but you would have to begin right from the base.

Best would be to look into the market and adapt to what is new in the field relating to your career. May be pursue a certificate course related to the ltests in the software field.
Other then this you could opt for a Management degree. You could pursue an MBA in any field as per you choice. Although you have another MBA option, i.e, Executive MA, which generally calls for a minimum 5 years of experience.

Other than MBA, you could think of:

  • SAP Modalities
  • Project Management

At the same time please note that just opting for higher studies or a job change is not a solution to saturation.
You ought to find means to get into the job. Learn something new, join training programs, get into any kind of hobby or relaxation mode or best is to begin or initiate a new project in your organization.
Hope this helps.
Wish you good luck....

Dear Aspirant,

The reason you have lost after a 5 year software career is may be that you jumped, ran and chose the IT career due to the money and lifestyle you saw in the surrounding people.

If you wish to continue into software, then Project Management certification will be of help to you. You can also look for Six Sigma certification or MCSE, MCSA, CCNA certifications.

Moving to another domain apart from software domain seems difficult since even if you get, then the software experience will not be useful.

Therefore you have to tell us whether you are looking to change the IT field or would like to remain in the IT field?

Best wishes
