    HI Reethu,

    First of all, let me tell you one thing.
    Choose your profession according to your taste and skill not according to the market situations or current salary packages. Datawarehousing is a very good area to get into, but how could you ensure that, you will perform in that. One year before your choice was SQL. Now you are saying that, you are not good in SQL. So better you find yourself about your skills and where you can improve.

    Let me tell you one thing, this is my 4th year in SQL. Still I am not good in this area. The reason is, SQL has very huge area to know. The more you try, the more you learn, the more you learn, the more you are confident.
    First identify your strong area and get into that.

    All the best.

    Hi,<br />As Johnson mentioned please try to find out your strong area and in what area you are more confident you have WILL to go , well i dont say more but as you mentioned that you have 1 yr of experience ,well you get your one year of exp , its a long process . LEARNING is a ongoing process and we will have to learn to keep with pace of the TECHNOLOGY.<br /><br /><br /><img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' /><br />Regards<br /><br />Hemantgiri S.

    I wouldn't necessarily consider a career move after only one year unless you just hate the job. One year isn't really enough time to get comfortable and good at the career or field you have chosen. In the first couple years of a job, go the extra mile to study, participate in communities, and learn as much as you can. Take challenges whenever they are presented to help stretch yourself. After you've done this two or three years then evaluate yourself, look how far you have travelled, and decide if it's a direction you want to keep travelling in. If not at that point, find the next adventure.<br /><br />[<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />]<br /><br />MeanOldDBA<br />derrickleggett@hotmail.com<br /><br />When life gives you a lemon, fire the DBA.

    I suggest and follow... attempts may fail... but never fail to attempt and you will get to know the things after you are practically involved. So keep reading the information and test them at your end, as you know this forum is always at your help.

    Goodluck.
