    Hi Vidhya,
    Break should not be problem, if you are well prepared, apply for the job who are looking for 3+years of experience, take up the interview. if they question you why you have taken break, explain them the situation you had. Definetly this is not at all problem, as many women go through this break. Since you have had work technically, finding job should not be problem if you are strong in your area. don't worry. are you looking job in India or abroad?

    Hi

    Dont worry....Break for kids is not such a big thing...I also had to take a break of 2 yrs for my kid...and I had to come abroad....But I was able to find a job in my field...Oracle apps is a very demanding field...You should prepare nicely and go for the interviews...
    The last company where u worked is closed now...but it should not be a problem for you to get another job... dont mention about it in the interview, if no1 is asking...
    Good Luck!!
