I am currently majoring in Information Systems with a track of database management. I plan to become a database administrator or database analyst when I graduate. I know the job prospects are great now but I just want to make sure when I'm 50, this will still be something that companies CANNOT do without.
I'm looking into taking some courses to become a Database Analyst. What courses do you recommend? Did anyone take any online courses for this position and can recommend a website that offers courses?
Please be specific in courses. I need titles...for example, SQL, ASP, etc.
I am currently working as a Database Analyst and love it! I graduated in December and started my first entry-level job as a Database Analyst. Of course, I work with everything SQL. I was just curious as to how long SQL will be the main requirement for employers? I know I will have to learn whatever new comes out down the road.
I have a degree in MIS, and have worked for IBM as a Database Analyst using Brio, and currently doing more database work, but light programming. I'm about to take a SQL class, but I'm wondering if this is the way to go. I've heard of the MCDBA and want to know what all should I know if I decide to pursue it, and would a job in Database Administration be fufilling and what are the salaries looking like for a beginner.
What exactly is Enterprise Monitoring? And what type of jobs are available doing this? How's the pay?

BS in Information Systems Management
5 years as a database analyst
2 years as a senior recruiter
As a senior recruiter, it's more of a sales job. I want more career growth and responsibility at this point. What else do I need to do to transition from recruiter to generalist? Thinking about going back to school to get a MS in Human Resource or a MBA with specialization in Human Resource. Also, which degree would be better and any recommendation for colleges/universities. If I was to do the MBA, I would go with Loyola College. For the MS in Human Resource, I would go with Towson University but their job placement center is not resourceful or able to deliver results. Need feedback. Thanks.

I've been offered a job as a SQL database analyst. I graduated last year from university (masters degree in networking) and then I worked for Cisco for 6 months. I would like more work in networking but I can't find any at the moment. Would working as a SQL database analyst play against me in the future? Will future employers tell me that SQL and networking are not related at all so I'm not a good candidate? I have the CCNA and I'm planning to sit CCNP route and switch soon. Thanks for your advice.
So... I'm 20, just got a job as a database analyst, 9-5 of course but I don't really have anything to do in this job... just something once in a while, but that takes up barely any of my time. The other 6 hours I stare at a screen or a little paper trying to look busy. So here is the question... what can I do to entertain myself? Something online or off works. Please don't say "watch porn and m********e" or "get drunk and run around the office"... It has to be something fun, time consuming and inconspicuous as people are sorta walking around. I know no one really cares but I feel weird if other people see me playin hold'em on yahoo... This suck, I don't even have anyone my age to hang out with here, it's all people my parents' age... Help me find something to keep me entertained for 6 hours!!!
BTW I quickly found out that porn lies and real secretaries are old and ugly and not hot, horny and with big boobs...
I would like to know if I can get jobs like computer programming, or networking... Also please give me details on the job outlook in the future and how it's like in a daily life of a computer scientist.
Thanks a lot!

I'll be graduating with an engineering degree (Comp Eng.) and rethinking my career options. One of them is working in a bank. As far as I know, the backoffice is the most stable but lowest paid but still the starting salary as a grad is higher than most engineering jobs. How would my career advancement be like? I'm concerned about the kinds of responsibility and working hours as well. I'm kind of interested in the trading desk. What are the qualifications I would need to get there?

I just want to know around what year did the CIA start accepting job applications, and considering normal citizens with little to no experience in the work field. For example, someone that just out of the blue wanted to join the CIA, what year did the CIA allow this person to actually apply and possibly get put into a job there? Thanks.
By saying that they were not normal i mean that they ha some military experience or other kind of experience that made the CIa want to recruit them instead of just receiving an application.

If you just have a college degree, is it realistic? Places like NSA and CIA seem hard to get into, but analysts are employed all over in DHS and others. Is it easier to get hired there?
