I know most of us may say that coding , unit testing are the Fresher’s work I agree , but still I don’t want to leave that touch.
Look at the questions on this board to realize that IT outsourcing is infested by "freshers" who -- to be charitable -- don't belong anywhere near a mainframe. The world -- the IT world, anyway -- is saved by the fact that the systems that we wrote decades are stable and working, and don't need more than the occasional superficial tweak.. However, the day will come when a major data center goes down, and the current generation of software engineers stand around staring at each other in helpless horror. That's when actual experience and ability will come into play...at about a lakh of rupees per day.
Perhaps quality assurance / testing? Those teams have to set up test data and automate the testing as much as possible. They are usually divided up into business folks and technical folks. You would be basically the tech support for a small group of business analysts.
