Can I get a mentor/teacher for SQL so I can obtain a new career?
I am new to SQL programming and I dedicate 1 hr a day to tutorials and videos. I started a week ago and I am looking for a mentor/teacher to assist me as I work toward a professional career. I have my A+ and Net+ certifications. I have worked in technology since 2005 and I always work for large global businesses/fortune 500 companies. I feel as though I am a top student/learner and up for any task. I'm looking for someone with experience to help me get my knowledge, wisdom and understanding on a supreme level faster to enter the job market. From past experience, I have been a great student. If you can assist, my email is below. Feel free to contact me, I'll be studying to improve my database skills while exploring a new career path. I'm open t all forms of mentoring/teaching, working on projects, studying assignments, etc. My goal is to be confident in knowing the skills to seal an interview and perform very well once hired. Kindest Regards, Asa Bush
Best thing to do is build a relationship with someone. Get in touch through their blog or on Twitter or Facebook or Linkedin. Mentoring is more than just telling you a book to read. That's easy. It's helping you identify gaps in your understanding, helping you build contacts. Any random individual can suggest books to read or courses to study. I'd suggest going to [PASS web site] and find your local user group there (or the closest one). Go to the user group meeting and talk to people. That's a great way to both network for jobs and look into getting someone to maybe be a mentor. :
