      • Saquib arfeen

        I tried to search for hadoop admin jobs with 0 yes relevant experience but could not get any. And all oif them wanted above 3 yes relevant exp. But this criteria for any job requirement. Then what is it that will persuade me to go with this profile leaving behind oracle apps dba, instead I think its better to learn FMW technologies in Oracle which has become the future!!
