For several personal or professional reasons, “you may be considering non-traditional database career paths” … jobs that allow you to work with databases in some capacity without the trappings of typical, traditional full-time database developer jobs.
In this article I will answer a question posted by “Kimberly Joy from Montreal, Quebec, Canada”. Kimberly has a QA background and wants to get back into the Information Technology (IT) industry as a part-time database developer.
This article is Part 1 of a series on Non-Traditional career opportunities in the IT Industry.
Learning new Information Technology (IT) skills is typically thought of as painful because the Study Textbooks used in the Information Technology (IT) industry are usually written by geeks for a geeky, hard-core, technical audience.
This is why one of the challenges facing professionals today is how to overcome the difficulty, complexity or high learning curves typically associated with learning new Information Technology (IT) skills.
Keeping in mind that Sql or Database skills are useful in any industry including financial, insurance, banking or information technology sectors, wouldn’t it be really helpful if learning Sql or databases was made easy?
There is an article on Elance that says that SQL skills are currently the third, most in-demand skill on the Elance job network
Elance for those of you who’ve never heard of it, is one of the top job sites for freelancers or remote workers or offsite consultants
You may not have heard of Elance because you’ve always worked a full-time job and you don’t know much about the freelancing or moonlighting world or perhaps you have worked freelance jobs, but for some reason, have never heard of Elance.
