I'm currently working as a Assistant Manager, working as part of global operations in a Non IT Industry leading a small team providing services in Measurements. Also lead User Acceptance Testing for various workstreams as part of major unification project which will complete 1.5 years this May. Have a total experience of 8 years, out of which 5 years is spent in current organisation.
Education: Graduate in Arts (humanities), done Diploma in Computer Science & Application and also CCNA (certification yet to complete due to work).
Career goal: To specialize either in Networking, Storage or Security and continue my career in IT Industry.
Strength: Technically sound, find myself more interested in IT related projects than my current responsibility in delivering measures. Confident, apt learner.
Recently, one of my friend suggested that EMC is looking for Information Storage Management professionals and it would help me get started & find my ways into an IT Industry by working for EMC after ISM certification. I have found instructor lead video training materials on ISM and I have started listening to it already. I would appreciate if any professionals could help me answer below queries
1. What are the prospects of being ISM professional
2. My graduation in Humanties - How much is this a concern when it comes to selection in job interviews.
3. I'm switching Industry, I'm willing to let go of my current rank as Asst. Manager and avoid people management until I become a specialist, to an extent compromise on my earnings and get into a IT to gain specialization and carve a strong career - is this a right move? Is this worth for ISM or should I look at other certifcations to start my career?
3. Once I get into EMC - do I get oppurtunities to take up more specialization related to Storage?
4. What are the earning potentials of storage specialist as he starts his career vs down the line in his career in the same field?
I hope I find answer to my questions, wait no more, but get started!
Unfortunately, we cannot comment on job opportunities. However, there are a number of great posts here in the community with success stories (we've tagged them with 'provenimpact'). Here's one disscussing the value of holding an EMC Proven Professional certification.
Best of luck to you!
