I had been working for a company for about 5+ years. Changed roles over time. From process worker to admin support to IT Support and back to admin support. I finish studies (masters in IT) long back in 2014. Now I am looking back to work into IT industry. I am looking to get a suggestion on what action plan should I take. What is the ideal field to walk in and worth spending time to learn #melbourne
Background and skills:
I have learnt those all old programming language which are now outdated C, vb etc. Well still the funda like data types, loops, array gonna be same.
I have good understanding of basics and can write few SQL queries.
I have learnt it in school before and if I brush up my knowledge I am sure in a month time or 2 I can make a basic website.
⬇️: why learn php now when we have platforms like wordpress, opencart, shopify etc that can be used to design website add modules and we good to go.
Should I go to infrastructure? Do some certifications MCS or Amazon or do CCNAs and set the career.
⬇️: I am not really good with the soft skills. I dont want to end up being a call centre person as IT Support guy. Is there any other path were certifications like AWS or something where I do not stuck myself in call centres. I know all jobs start with IT support, i am sure there should be something to learn to bypass some of the steps. Between I do have knowledge of creating profile in AD and basic IT support stuff
I do have database skills. I have learnt RDBMS and those cardinality, relationships and stuff like that in uni, never got chance to implement in real work environment. I used to do data cleansing on db using some basic SQL query (update, where, wild char and subquery use) in my current job
I have design some reports in powerbi too obviously all RDBMS was initially set up at my current workplace.
I know it totally depends on individual interest to what career path to select. For me, I believe I am smart enough and the extreme passion to learn will make my way easy in whatever field I put myself into. It is more like I dont want to go into something which takes long time to learn before I can get an entry level job.
