you should stop putting certifications before jobs. Why have you done a cert without understanding why you want it?

You apply for jobs involving Linux and it is hopefully an asset on your CV that people are interested in. It's not like it's some mathematical equation where having cert X means you get job Y. This is real life, things are much more flexible than that.

Couldn't have said it better. Not sure how many threads there are on here about (basically), the same thing: "Help me get a certification! I've used Linux for two months, and want my RHCE!".

OP, unless you have KNOWLEDGE and EXPERIENCE, you will find it hard to get a job, period. Welcome to the real world...it isn't easy anywhere.

Kind of a harsh generalization to make...the obvious answer (given how you seem to feel), is for you to move.

Well yes, I'm aware of the subcontinent slant on putting certs over knowledge, does seem to be the way life works, which is a bit of a tragedy, but I guess that's not actually the main issue on this thread. Even if things are arse about face, you still know WHY you're doing the cert...

Calling India 'shitcrap'?
If that was a typo from your side, please remove it.

You need to understand (for the nth time) that people from India also reside
on this international board, and if you call names to their country (repeatedly)
they might feel offended.

Note the following word 'here', and resetreset's Location = India ....
Whilst I agree maybe he could have used a different word, I'd think (hope) that a local resident would know what he's talking about.

Hi Sunil,

Its good that you have your certification. But as you found out, nobody is bound to give you a job automatically. So you have to focus your efforts further.

Remember that certification is only like an entrance test. The employer knows that you know the basics and so doesn't have to give you basic training. So be prepared to start as a fresher in a non-DBA post.

Kindly focus on the following areas:
  • Keep in touch with the training institute. Also look at other training institutes and see whether you can work as a lab assistant or something there.
  • Broaden your capabilities by learning how companies use servers, operating systems, databases etc.
  • Broaden your scope to include towns other than your native town (where in India are you from and what is your basic education level)?
  • How to keep your skills active? Join a linux group, install linux and ask doubts on this forum.
  • Jobs need not be only in IT companies. You should also try non IT factory oriented industries and apply for any position in the IT department.
  • Job need not be only in Redhat or linux. Aim should be to get into an IT related job and get some skills about working in a team, projects, deadlines etc.

OK

Please refrain from expressing these colorful judgments on India or on the Indian people. Everyone has something to complain about his/her own Country or the whole world, but this kind of words can be offensive and do not serve to make things better. Moreover, it isn't said that everyone from India shares your opinion. Nuff' said.

Hi reset,

I agree with colucix in the previous post (#10). There's no need to bad mouth a country or a group. You'll only antagonise people and akin to crying wolf syndrome, people will not take your serious posts seriously. You'll lose out in the long run.

Let me tell you that the grass always looks greener on the other side of the fence. How do you really know that
  1. the situation in your aspirational countries is really going to judge you differently and
  2. since they are paved with gold, are going to give you gold?
OK

A good start would be to install linux and implement the things you have learn in certification. Go through the books provide by the institute thoroughly. One topic at at time and explore that.
For example today I thought of implementing NIS, and I will not move to another topic until I have some level of confidence in it. In between you will face problems which will be helpful to understand things.

Dont worry slow and steady always wins the race
