Hi Everyone,
I am from c++ background , with 2 YOE and my current ctc is 12LPA and I work at Philips.
Planning for a job switch. Have no idea about the market or abt the interview preparation.
How much can I expect if I make a switch ?
And how good is C++ market? I know intermediate c++ and basics of python .
Should C++ developers learn other languages to survive in the industry ?

Need your help ,Thanks in advance.
