I just graduated from college and I got a job as a Technology Analyst in a banking company. I was told that I would be working on .Net or Java. What kind of work will I be doing? What is the need of a programmer in a banking company?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

If you got the job, didn't they say what you would be doing ? –  driis Jun 12 '11 at 18:39
I think you should be asking them, not us. –  Mahmoud Hossam Jun 12 '11 at 18:49
No wonder the banking system is collapsing. Hire a fresh graduate to do a job they don't even understand that is to do with designing systems (and takes years of experience to be good at). Not a slight on the OP, it's not your fault you were hired to do a job you don't know how to do. –  James P. Wright Jun 12 '11 at 20:39
Well, what did you apply for? What did the job description say you'd be doing? Or did you just get a title and the description of .net / java? In that case, you probably should be a bit more critical about the jobs you take. In IT, you actually have a choice where you work and what you do. –  Cthulhu Jun 12 '11 at 23:02

1 Answer 1

As a Technology Analyst you will be doing maintenance work of their system; it won't be purely development work but if they are saying they will give you work on .Net or Java, then there must something for you. But also as you are a fresher, they may give you some small work and after some time when you prove yourself, they will give you some real job to do.
