Need help on future path to choose


Hi All,

I am a 7.5+years experienced Unix resource who has mostly worked Technology Upgradation projects from AIX to linux, HP-UX to Linux and Solaris to Linux with no advanced exposure in any flavor (only a few things here & there).
I have also learnt AWS on my own, its eco system, AWS services like EC2,VPC,S3,IAM etc etc and has cleared AWS Solution architect Associate.

Could anyone please help and suggest how & where do i go from here , also , i have been trying to get calls from other service companies but unable to get even one call since many years now

Pleas please please help.

Given all those buzzwords of AWS, EC2, VPC, S3, and IAM, I'd suggest trying Amazon.

Meanwhile I do have to say that if it were me, I would not be continuing to pursue the same direction after many years of effort with absolutely no results. It literally sounds as if you wrote exactly that:

I've searched for jobs before, under circumstances where I absolutely needed a new job to support my family. I do know it's not an easy time period, however it's never taken years. If it started to be prolonged, I'd be doing everything possible to find a new and viable career.

???

Your resume says that your last job was working with AWS?

If you have a 'certificate' that should then mean you have the knowledge. That being said, you mention Linux and Unix experience, but don't say how deep that experience runs. If you have been working at the same place for 7.5 years and have not gotten ANY further responsibilities, then either your company is a poor employer, or you haven't demonstrated the skills needed to move up. Sorry to sound harsh, but it can only be one of those two things.

You also don't say where you live, or how you're actually doing a job search...if you're just posting your resume online and waiting for phone calls then I'm not surprised you haven't progressed. I'd also strongly suggest you check your resume for typos, punctuation, grammar, and other errors of that type...when I see resumes with any of those things wrong, that candidate is immediately suspect. A single typo isn't bad...multiples, with bad grammar/spelling/punctuation?? Sorry..no.

Nothing wrong in your reply TBOne , i surely do need a lot more harsher replies to get myself in-line , FYI , i live in India (Hyderabad).
Also , here is my Amateurish Resume , Could you please have a look and suggest where/in what am i lacking. I For sure done have any typos, punctuation, grammar mistakes in my Resume (my Replies and posts also should tell you , i am atleast decent in my vocabulary )
Link : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Sse...ew?usp=sharing

Having 7.5 years of Experience i surely want to make use of my experience on what i have already worked on and build on top of that.
If its not too much to ask, can someone suggest/help with below
1) List of Topics , links , Curriculum to follow having my experience as the base and keep building on top of that.

I haven't followed that link, sounds like someone has and also it seems to cause more confusion.

You should not be posting your resume here. I've reported this thread because it probably should be moved to the Non-Nix/General forum, and also because this is not a jobs board.

Meanwhile if your whole entire intention was to post your credentials or ask an open-ended question with little feedback or information about what you've tried, then this question is not a well thought out one.

Suggest you follow the links in my signature referencing how to use the LinuxQuestions site and read about how to best formulate better questions.

The link you posted doesn't work, and honestly...I'm not going to spell-check and update your resume for you. It is up to **YOU** to put effort into things, if you want the rewards that come with that effort. If you can't be bothered to check your resume well, then that says a lot about why you've been where you are for 7.5 years.

No, because there IS NO ANSWER for this. You will get out of things what you put into them...there is no magic list of "do x, y, and z, then study this and you'll be successful!". Life doesn't work that way.

According to your CV, under "Technical Skills": "Operating Systems : Windows 9x/2000/XP" ...

With this kind of oversight on your part, it's possible your CV just gets binned, before the prospective employer moves on to read about your "projects"? Page one is critical in that if it doesn't hold up in it's own right, the rest of it certainly won't get read...

I'm not sure what the expected format for a CV is across the world, but the format, the bullet points, etc would all be very much undesirable over here (UK). Unfortunately, it's also strewn with abbreviations, grammatical errors, missing or additional punctuation/spaces, etc.

I have to agree with what seems to be the general consensus of the thread, in that realistically no one is going to fix this for you - more to the point: this is completely the wrong venue. Perhaps look instead for guidance on writing CVs ("resume") / going to interviews.
