    At the crossroads…Need some advice!!

    Locked

    by paulpk ·

    Hi
    I am working in a Telecom industry as a Systems/Data Analyst for the last 5 years. I know the data really well and worked on lots of data analysis on UNIX/AWK, Oracle PL/SQL dealing with huge amounts of data. Recently, I got an opportunity to work on a Data Warehousing project in the same firm. Now the project is being outsourced and I have to look for a new job. (I am a consultant)

    The options I have in mind are I want to tune my career into a Full time data analyst in a Datawarehousingproject. ( I am looking for one!!)

    I want to enhance my skills and learn a Datamodelling tool like “ERwin”. Also I want to continue working in a 100% datawarehousing environment.

    Please give me any valuable suggestions. Your guidance is appreciated.

    Thanks
    Paul K

      Paul – You wish>>The options I have in mind are I want to tune my career into a Full time data analyst in a Datawarehousing project<< With your experience in the Computer Community this should be somewhat simple. Just find out where the Data Warehousing Projects are and apply. However, there seems to be something that is holding you back that you are not identifying. Do not wish to move? Marriage? Secure within current social circle? Budget? Get the obsticles in place, then submit yourself to the Data Warehousing world. First by an ATTRACTIVE resume. Then follow-up phone calls. If financially possible a visit with the Human Resources Officer. I used to hire. I found that there is no replacement for motivation. There is plenty to fillin for apathy.

      You might want to consider boning up on OLAP, since it’s very closely tied to data-warehousing.

      Of course this advice applies not only to the IT industry, but to life itself: Be quicker to respond. Be decisive. Be quick to put issues to rest. Don’t linger at the “crossroads” too long. The longer you linger the more likely you are to get run over.
