Definitely the latter. It’s easy to learn the nuances of a new industry, tougher to build financial analysis/reporting capabilities if you have just been doing change management and communications for BOA.

Relevant work

Example: Want to do financial services exit opp. Better to work on human capital project for big bank or financial analysis for random company (non-financial services)?

The former i would say, atleast to get a resume shortlist

Depends which one you think is more likely to get you a staffing doing the actual work you want to be doing. I.e. if the human capital project is part of a much larger team and there are other finance related work streams you could eventually move to then that makes sense. Otherwise I’d say you’re better taking the other company as long as it’s a good one.

Hi, I have received offer letter from IBM. Can I switch technology after joining? Or do I have to work in the same technology.

The problem is that I don't have that much in hand skill in which tech I am selected and I may be screwed once I am put into live project in the same skill. How to avoid it. Any suggestions please. Can they terminate me?

Thank you guys in advance.
