Here is my problem: I have 10 years of experience in Hyperion SQR reporting. As we know, SQR language is used in both PeopleSoft and Hyperion, but 90?s in peoplesoft, and 10?s in Hyperion. For me, I only use SQR in Hyperion and know nothing about peoplesoft. If I use Hyperion SQR as a job title to look for a job in Canada, no positions can be found. But if I use SQR developer as a job title, there are many positions, all of them is about Peoplesoft SQR, as soon as they know I know nothing about Peoplesoft system, they give me up. So I have to rename my job title as Hyperion Developer, ok, there are a lot of Hyperion developer positions indeed. But hyperion is a huge package, Essbase, Planning, HFM, DIM, ODI, .... There are too many skills to know. I use 1.5 year to learn the other Hyperion skills, and can only come to the basic level for most of the other hyperion skills.
Now, I am lucky to sit on a Hyperion SQR project in USA, and I have time to learn new skills.
Please experts gave me some advices, should I learn some peoplesoft skills, and make me more like a PeopleSoft SQR developer? If I learn PeopleSoft, peoplesoft is also a huge package, many things to learn. Or I keep learning the other Hyperion skills, even if they have nothing to do with SQR? Or there is the 3rd way? Or 4th way?
I lost my way in the career market, and not sure what I should do the next step, please experienced experts point out the way for me, very thanks!

Organization have good data center and work of networking support in MIS department.
Org turnover - 3 billion $
Data Center of internal SAP - project value 35 crores/350 Million $ project
2. As a Network Consultant - Networking
As organization is into System Integration (Software/Hardware) of IT projects, it has internal department for designing the networking and security solutions, where i can be hire as a network consultant but i will get the designation of "Sales Executive" as my work also include the interaction with companies like Cisco, HP, IBM, Juniper, Nortel etc.
