How Do I Become a Database Programmer Without Experience?
I received my last degree back in 2010, an MBA with a concentration in MIS and Professional Accounting.
I have never had an opportunity to work with databases or gainfully in an IT area, except for help desk over 13 years ago, but I would like to begin.
I am at a transitioning career stage. I've had 20 years with a company, but have never been able to get into their IT dept.
As I've said, I have no hands-on marketable database programming, management skills, but I would like to become a database manager/programmer.
What to do?
I've faithfully looked at job listings for different database positions and the list of requirements or desired qualifications can be 'discouraging'.
I'm a quick study but I haven't had half of the exposure you would need to qualify for these requirements.
I'm 44 and have no desire to start from 'scratch' with education, but what do I do?
How can I become a desirable candidate?
