I am interested in getting involved in eBusiness/eCommerce strategy
consulting in the Chicago Seattle, Wisconsin, California, Texas, and or the Florida area. I have a bachelor in ComputerScience and Marketing and have been presently working as a Helpdesk Analyst for four years installing, configuring
hardware/software for a government institution. I'm curious as to which way to go to get involved in being able to get in as a Business analyst/Tech analyst for a consulting firm advising Clients/Corporations to get their internet strategy and business strategy in sync.
The current advice I'm getting is a little confusing. I am being told to
Others are telling me to get programming skills on the above and not go the network track CNE or MCSE. ( This from a MBA/MS graduate who never even programmed to get to where he is in eCommerce.)
I'm not a strong programmer and would like to stick with the former choice. Networks, Oracle DBA, a little HTML, XML--- which isn't intense programming. I believe that knowing a little in various areas helps to know what everyone is doing and how they all tie in together to create a wining business strategy for a business.
I do intend to get my MBA in a couple of years as well.
What advice can someone give me to clear this up?
Am I on the right path by getting certified in ORACLE (DBA) and eventually get my MCSE and then try to convince a company and or consulting firm what I have in terms of experience and go at it this way.
What I'd like is some help and advice on how I can segue into
the consulting side developing and advising ecommerce strategies
for companies. HELP, need some advice.
