@Kylben, the only exercise I am able to do at the moment is either freelancing and working on my own projects at home. This is how I have been carrying on what I always wanted to. thanks alot for the advise! :)

Sounds like a good idea, I have asked them if I could develope an admin page, since its a call centre that would save me sooo much time. I've started brainstorming, but now once i do start developing the system there wont be any mid or senior developers checking if I am on the right track since I am the only junior developer situated at the location they put me in :) my boss wants to leave developing and become a project manager. But I have joined other forums like Source Code etc to help me if I am stuck on coding.

this is my second job already, the reasons why im moving from one company to the next is because when I go for my interview they tell me of all the things I will be exposed to, once I'm in the job I do not develope.

@JB King, I got my first verbal warning today for not showing initiative! I have tried to create a report on Logi (Reporting service tool) so it would help make my life easier so my boss can give me some development. But because its a call centre and we have systems already, I wont be involved in the migration from asp classic to C# because I am not experienced enough... How does one get experience if they are not exposed to any projects?

But I want to get more exposed, my boss doe not want to give me the a chance and develope he gave the senior developer from another town to migrate out current asp classic systems to c#. And I will not be involved.

That's the thing, I never want to stop learning. But is it worth been over qualified but having no experience (putting it into practice)? I love programming, but I feel so lost in my career, so demotivated.

Hi there JB King, I work at a call centre and I do mostly database administration. I have spoken to my boss about this and he told me that hw is trying to get me into more development exposure :[ I don not even have the time to start any development at work because of the small adhoc things that they give me... creating users, creating a questionnaire, pulling reports. This is all done in the back end.
