That is a good question. I am finding the “new” market” challenging. Although I received my training and experience through my previous employer of 20 years only for ClearCase and ClearQuest only. Other needed training was not available. What is one to do in today’s market? My skills are transferable, but I am at a loss to many of the applications and skills discussed in this forum.

Hi,

This is not lose. by referring your profile, you have very depth understanding in SCM and its concept. Also you have worked on Top rated tools in SCM.

I feel, Learning new tools and technology will not be challenging for you.

Whats you future plan? are you searching new job or trying to do something your own?

Rajesh, thanks for your kind compliments. But why can’t I get a job as a Software Configuration Management/Release Engineer in this market? The following are phrases I have extracted from job openings posted on Monster, Dice, and CareerBuilder depicting a non-existent super Software Configuration Manager. I have never used JAVA, Oracle, SQL (had a four-week course in college ages ago), Maven, Bamboo, Python, VMware, Xen, no experience with automated management/creation of server clusters (training was to take place with last position until budget cuts and lay-offs), Capistrano, LAMP, Phing, Subversion Large Scale Web, MySQL, PHP, Puppet, Bash, Chef, MF, MS SQL RDBMS technologies, no hands-on experience working with GiT and not simply “used’ GiT but rather have used GiT extensively and even better used GiT to replace ClearCase, ANT, Ivy, Bamboo, Maven, Hudson, product installation/configuration and system/unit testing, HTML/XML, no experience working with high volume web sites preferably in an operations type role, no experience in web-facing business and their operation, no Perforce experience, no experience with Subversion, no experience with Agile Build, CruiseControl, no experience with Packaging & Installers i.e., development experience with InstallShield; no development experience with rpm is a plus, no level skills in CVS & Subversion….the list goes on and on. There is nothing wrong with my past experience. It is as you will agree something working in my favor. But that favor has not arrived. We are in a major depression, and employers have increased their requirements to unachievable levels. I will have to accepted by a company that will allow me to mould to their needs, and I know I can do that, but that just is not happening right now.
