I don't your resident status. The good place to try is dotcom, eventhough their attractiveness is at odds but they are still desparately looking for people. I think it will give you a much better chance. Since job seach is depended on timing, so be patient and it will pay off.
I have OCP 8 and have no luck in finding the Junior Oracle DBA position. I have been in the IT field for 2 years. Many recruiters ask for at least 1 year experience in database field. I'm concerned right now for my certificate. If I don't have a chance to get the foot in the door in the next few months, I don't think I will get in later on. Also, I heard that they will be a lot of layoff in the computer fields, I'm not sure if we can get the foot in the door or not.
Actually, I had two years experience in IT field with MBA background. After that, I chose database as my speciality.
Now, all I know much is Oracle db on NT/Unix, and some programming language.....I was wondering if I can not get started from here, what other fields I can get into it???
I think the biggest point of mine to find a job in here is my visa status. I am only holding a F1-visa & not a U.S. Citizen. So, there is no doubt that I need to try harder....Well, nothing is impossible to a willing mind. I will keep searching everywhere. After all, I am willing to relocate worldwide...
Thank you for all your concerns & suggestion!! ^_*
It seems that both of us are in the same boat. Hope that everything will go our way soon. Never let it go, all right? Good luck on you!!
