"I would need advice on how to survive in this field."

Do Not Stick With One Thing ... Like just a BA or PM or Developer ... learn a range of things ...

During the 30+ years I have been in this business ... I became a Hybrid IT person ... or the "Jack-Of-All-Trades" ... someone who can be a Project Owner and take that project to from start to installation.

Many people hate that Jack-Of-All-Trades term, because they are usually don't have the End-To-End project skills and claim that means you are a master of none ... Ha Ha Ha.

During that 30+ years ... I've been employed all the time to handle projects ... both Corporate and Government stuff.

Good Luck.

Re: Good day 

I learnt that in this field you would need a lot of experienced professionals around. I would not mind if you be a mentor because I know I need it and it might just be an Avenue to move forward

Re: Good day 
The "Avenue to move forward"



Full Stack, DevOps Engineer ... a fancy name for "Jack-Of-All-Trades"

A person with expertise across different layers of the project stack ... comfortable working across both back-end and front-end technologies.

In Other Words ... a Functional PM, BA, Developer, Trainer and what ever else that needs to be done ... even a Project Owner that can do an End-To-End project all by himself.

I was very clear on what I wanted I just needed to find it… I was on my lunch break so I need to get the job done as I had a meeting that I needed to attend back in the office straight after lunch! I am not a frequent shopper and to b...
