My career disaster Can someone please help me?
29.5 yrs Indian Male
BTech(2004-India): Information Technology and then worked for 3 years as database developers
MBA(2007/8-UK) and now working as Oracle ERP developer.
After finishing my Full time MBA in 2008,I wanted to change career into Banking or Strategy Or anything for that matter (I wanted to move away from IT at any cost)
But after finishing MBA in 2008, I had a debt of £29K and jobs were difficult to get so I choose the easy way…I went back to programming (to payback my debt). Debt is now clear but I am seating with an unhappy Oracle programming job at £45K near London.
Job is nice, easy going, colleagues are nice BUT I didn’t do my MBA to go into Programing again.
And In the meanwhile I also learned Online Marketing/Social Media Marketing/SEO/Google Adwords on my own and tried to change career but didn’t succeed (because of lack of previous experience? I don’t know either).
At this stage I am standing with a broken relationship and marriage and unhappy career. Don’t know how can I improve and encash the year I spent working like a DOG during MBA.
I don’t know what equities, fixed assets, derivatives, bond etc are but I am willing to do anything to learn the skills which would take me out of IT…….I don’t want to do programming anymore..please help..please suggest what should I start studying to change a career into Marketing or in Finance/Equities/hege funds.
