One must know how to join the dots to move ahead. There are many dots to be joined to climb the technology ladder. One dot that has caught every software professional’s attention is .NET (dot net), the Microsoft technology that has a wider reach today. One tech job in demand these days is .NET specialists in the U.S.

“The market has been very good for the last few years in the area of .NET development, as companies step up investments in this area. The market is very good for all .NET professionals, especially those with domain knowledge in areas such as finance, banking and healthcare,” says Ashish Bhatia, a Dallas, TX based .NET expert.

Companies that were using ASP based systems found a great deal of benefit in moving to the .NET framework. The .NET framework allowed them to increase performance and do more transactions or orders every hour, and it also provided a bunch of very sophisticated tools that enable development. Currently, .NET is being used on a gamut of devices ranging from mobile phones, tablet PC’s and desktops.

Right now there is a demand for .NET Architects, .NET Developers, .NET Designers and .NET Testers in the U.S. and with the shortage of workers, Indian engineers can plug the gap.

The U.S. market demands .NET architects to have a domain expertise as well as programming expertise between 5-10 years that includes 2-3 years in .NET and a solid understanding of the framework concepts. .NET developers require 1-4 years of programming experience in .NET, depending on the level of the position. “A computer science background always helps, and professional experience with a few years of hands-on .NET development helps in getting a new position,” says Bhatia.
