Job role switch

Job role switch

New Member

Hello All,

 

I am an Oracle DBA with 10 years of relevant experience and 16 years overall experience. I am always interested being an invididual contributor on the technical front while my experience also demands me to drive the team or any implementation.

 

I am more interested to get into the trending technology and especially on Hadoop Administration. I have started reading online documents, videos and planning for certification as well while setting up my own lab on Hadoop Ecosystem for learning purpose.

 

Being an experienced DBA, I don't see an  opportunity to work or have hands-on on the Hadoop Administration. Was trying to switch the role even in my organization internally but it didn't help. Are there really chances that I could get into Big Data administration. I am ready to put in all my effort for certification but I am wondering how could I get into the real time hands-on Hadoop Administration.

 

Any inputs will be appreciated.

 

Regards,

Antony

Nothing should stop you to pursuing another role .if you have already completed your cloudera hadoop certification then you should be able to land in a job very easily. please ping me in direct message I should be able to refer few of the opening  if you are interested.
