Here we are, one week of computing done in the Corporate IT setting. It on St Valentine day that I joined the training on ‘Data Warehousing’ at Accenture IT premises.
The training was based on Oracle Academy’s Siebel 7.7 Data Warehouse Developer course content (http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=41&p_org_id=1001&lang=US&p_exam_id=1Z0_640).
There are many noteworthy points of this new experience:
Firstly, what you learn for your academic degree is just a stepping stone for the world of work. On the IT field, one has to prove oneself worthy of. I was stunned to see some trainees in the batch of fresh graduates ‘abandoning’ the Professional training by the company’s experts.
Secondly, I have been thinking a lot about my passion for Web 2.0 which can possibly be affected upon developing expertise in ERP/CRM systems used by IT Consulting firm. I have been passionate about the ecosystem of Open Source and Web Technologies. But maybe being in the shoes of Freelance Web Developer was suited for part time only and not for an ambitious career?!??!
