I have done my MCA and had worked with IT companies for 3 years ,after which i joined Management Institutes as Assistant Prof and worked for another 4 years.
I had to take a career break (more than an year now) for personal reasons.
My question is ,now i want to go back to IT comapny but do not want to join as a s/w developer.
I would prefer to join them as a Business Analyst or S/w tester or a profile where i can use my communication skills(which is pretty strong)
Kindly suggest if
Firstly - Is it possible to go back to IT industry after almost 5 yrs
Second- Should i do some short term courses for above mentioned positions
Third - if yes to second question , then plz suggest the courses
Fourth - Is there any such position in IT companies wherein i can use my Teaching Exp(I'm good at this- Not bragging )

Hi Rd K,
Why do you want to go back to the former IT company instead of continuing your teaching job? Teaching management doesn't seem relevant to tester job.
For the first and the second question, the answer is yes, but it's tough because you leave so long. If you were a top performer at the IT company and left for personal reason, you may have more opportunity to welcome back. A gap year is acceptable in your case. You obviously need to bridge the experience gap yourself by some related courses.
For your fourth question, you can use your teaching exp when you are an in-house coach.
Best luck!
