Is it a bad idea to apply as a fresher in some other service based company, especially when you're nearing two years of experience in your current organization, but you're unhappy with the technology?

Hi Fishes, I'm working in SAP Basis and I'm not happy with this domain as the night shifts are causing problems with my health and the work environment isn't good enough and I feel I won't thrive in the long run, I tried applying as a fresher in another company and they seem to be interested.

Hi,
I understand you are applying with 0 experience in some other technology/ job type.

But let me clear few things, once you have some experience you are not considered as a fresher anymore.
1.
If you desire to switch role (analyst) please try to put in your resume that you have the desire to change the role. The companies always find a person coming from technical background, a better fit as an analyst as well. Because of the technical knowledge, an analyst can quickly fill the gap between client and Devs ( My friend did the same )

2.
If you simply want to change the technology, try giving it time outside of your work hours. Try creating some projects on your own to showcase on your resume. It can and will get exhausting at times but trust me it's worth it.
Why? I was a support engineer for 2 years working in night shifts incidents, SQL etc. I followed this strategy to get hired as a full stack web developer in my next switch.

like

Yeah, try to showcase your technical background as your strength.
Be ready to answer : "Why you want to switch from technical role to analyst".

A good analyst with technical background will get better paid also.

There is one to many ratio/relationship if we compare analyst with devs

I understand it is really frustrating working in night shifts and yes it does causes health issues.
I am from HR and from Recruiting background - I can suggest to switch jobs- SAP Basis is a highly in demand skill so until n unless you are not switching to ML, AI, Data science it is not worth it as now you have 2 years work ex which will go in vain.

Something needs to be done about ghosting during the hiring/interview process.

It takes a huge toll on you. At the very least, just tell job seekers that they didn’t get it
