    Career change Advice

    Hello Friends,

    This is Devashish (Age: 27). Done 'Diploma (Electronics & Telecomm). I've just completed my studies of Oracle-PL/SQL. I'm overall 4 years experienced, but in 'Technical BPO' field. As of now, I do not have any industrial experience of PL/SQL. But desperately want to excel in this field. That's why I turned to you all.

    I'm very much confused and a bit scared about this. Will I be given a chance to appear for an interview at any software company.

    Therefore, I humbly request all my seniors (in Oracle PL/SQL) to please guide me, how to start my new career in PL/SQL, how do I select a PL/SQL project to impress any s/w firm, How do I start looking for jobs as fresher in PL/SQL, will my age (27 yrs) affect my future in S/W companies at interview??

    Dear all, I will be highly greatful for few guiding words from your side, which could help me to start a new career.

    Thanking you in advance,

    Devashish.

    Hello Jim,

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    I'm looking for 'Oracle PL/SQL Development' career.

    As you have suggested that, I'll have to have skills in 'Java or .Net' for 'Front End', I would like to say, I have only basic knowledge of 'C Programming Langauge'.

    Jim, will it be possible for me to learn 'Jave/.Net' with this platform?
    If Yes, how to 'start' and from where to 'start'?
    If you could guide me with few word, I'll be highly thankful to you.

    One more thing, I'm eager to ask, will my 'Age (27 yrs)' created any issues, while attending interviews?? Will companies treat me as low profile candidate as compared to others?

    I hope to hear from you soon.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,

    Devashish.
