I have been working in datastage for 1.7 years and I have planned to switch to other company due to my salary being an issue. However, I have 1 arrear (backlog) currently, meaning that I have failed an exam and have not been awarded my college degree. Will this create a problem for my career or I can get a job?

    Indian context, backlog means he has failed in one exam and need to write that exam again to pass the course. – Anish Sheela Jan 22 at 8:15
  • Hi @Nanda i have a query out of curiosity & not demotivating or belittling you, how did your current employer agree on hiring you while you are having a backlog as I assume you would not have got your degree awarded to you. – penta Jan 22 at 9:56
  • @penta Smaller companies don't care much about the actual degree. – Anish Sheela Jan 22 at 13:25

Usually MNC's usually won't consider people with arrears, unless with large experience. Its more than ok on smaller companies.

My advice is to take a job in a smaller company, study and pass the arrear and switch to MNCs (if you are interested).
