I am a recent graduate of a tier three school, with a degree in finance. I currently have no experience, so I am basically in the entry level status. Anyways, I would love to pursue an analyst position or possibly get involved with budgeting/forecasting. I guess you could say those are my goals. I still havent truly decided what I want to do. I have interviewed and thought about some possible jobs, I just dont know what is going to get me the experience I need. I dont want dead end experience.
Work in Retail Banking - I have purused personal banker positions, but most are telling me to start out as a teller!
Work in Mortgage Origination - this is with a bank that specializes in mortgages (Indymac Bank) Offered me a position, but its hourly.
Basically im trying to get a job thats not necessarily glamorous paying the big bucks, but instead allows me to develop good work ethic, with the possibility to learn and grown and mold myself into a essential player in society!
I am thinking about getting an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Business Management. What type of jobs could I do with this type of degree? Anything and everything you can think of would be great! Thanks!!
I've got a job as a I.T. Business Analyst in a MNC. The clients are US based from the Health Care sector.
Was wondering how the future is in this stream. I previously have over two years of exp. working as an ERP consultant.
Any inputs are greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
I came to know that SAP is a company which gives ERP implementation. I want to know what exactly is SAP and why is the world slowly moving towards SAP implementation for all companies? What is buggy with the current setup of companies without SAP intervention? If SAP is computerizing/integrating the whole company setup, then wouldnt it reduce the job opportunities?
What are the qualification needed to apply for system administrator job in any field.
is b.c.a sufficient.
Also, is a computer programmer the same thing as a software engineer? I am interested in going back to school for a second B.S. in Computer Science and would like to know more about it. How much do entry level jobs compensate in your experience with a B.S. in Comp.Sci? I know, thats a lot of questions but I really appreciate any feedback as I try to navigate my future.
For example for a SAP SD Consultant with strong knowledge of SD Module and strong ABAP skills. (SAP is an German ERP System, actually, it's the biggest and succest one ERP)
I recently took an entry level job as a business systems analyst. We use a ERP system that is similar in function to SAP, but...it isn't SAP. I plan on staying here for a few years, but I was just looking into similar jobs and noticed most require SAP experience. I was wondering what employers think of someone who has systems experience with ERP that is not SAP, and I was also wondering if there is some kind of training or certification I can get with SAP that would make up for my lack of direct experience. Thanks! :)
What is SAP how is it useful to computer engg whats it's course fee& duration

Thank you very much!
I am a senior software analyst (IT) with ample experience in project life cycle activities, including few project management activities. I want to shift to project management. Am considering to move to SAP. Currently Siemens SAP-PS training is available. They mentioned that I will be getting a certificate as an Application Associate-Project System and I will be starting as an Associate Consultant. All I understand is project system will help me in learning about planning, budgeting, reporting tasks - all related to project management in SAP.
I am concerned about few things:
1) Will I be wasting my 5+ years of experience and starting at the bottom of SAP career ladder - "Application Associate" certificate sounds like the beginners certificate. Is it so? (I saw that consultant jobs in project system mention minimum 3 years of experience in project system)
2) Is there any other certificate training in SAP where I can use my earlier experience and join at my level of execution?

Over the last one hundred years we have seen extraordinary changes in technology. We have gone from foul smelling gas producing transportation on four legs to foul smelling gas consuming transportation on four wheels. We used to watch the birds and wish we were them and now we are visiting planets that have never seen a terrestrial animal. We used to dream of going around the world in eighty days and now we communicate across the globe in milliseconds.
Technology has changed our lives in ways that are too numerous to count. Our work is easier and more productive. We have more leasure time than ever before. We enjoy food and drink that our ancestors could never conceive. You are reading this on a piece of equipment that, if someone from a hundred years earlier had been brought forward to today, would flatly declare magic and no amount of explaining would convince them otherwise.
Yes technology, computers, gadgets, cleaning, manufacturing etc. etc. has improved wonderfully and I would love to see what it will be like in the next hundred years time. I am sitting here typing this on my computer and at the same time watching television in a little window. Talk about multitasking :) talk about technology, I love it!!
If however you could bring someone here today and place them in a neutral setting and you talk to them about neutral things would you feel a hundred year difference? No! Although technology has changed people haven't. They still do the same things they did hundreds of years ago. They have the same basic likes and dislikes. They still fight over the same things. Sure the boys and their toys have changed but the principles haven't.
The fear that I have is not for the technology but for the people. Technology changes fast but people fear change and resist it. Yet due to economic pressure technology keeps changing whether people need it or not. They are being steamrolled into using something they have no understanding of, don't want to understand and are more than a little afraid of. I am not talking about the geeks and the l33t but the average Joe and Jane Doe. Humanity will always lag behind technology and will be dragged into the future stumbling behind technology like some blind, deaf and lame halfwit on a leash.

The way I look at it is a bit narrow. I look at my job and the companies I work for, and I literally cannot imagine what it would have been like working in an age before computers and networking. It is actually difficult to fathom how things got done, organized, proceeded, etc. It's kinda sad, in a way, but also a testament to the speed of change we've gone through. I'm amongst those people who mostly got their first computers mid-way through high school before picking a career and experiencing any real work the "old-fashioned" way. :)
