Thanks for the reply's guys.
If for example I decide to move into storage, and then after a few years I realise that I should rather have chosen support, how easy /difficult would it be for me to switch over?
Do mainframes differ from country to country? The reason I ask, is I'm from South Africa and would like to work internationally if given the chance.
As I was reading your reply's it seemed to me that you guys have been in the game for quite a while and have built up quite a wealth of experience and useful info.
I wasn't planning on a career in mainframes, but as this opportunity has come my way and I'm still young (25 without any other real promising ventures), even though I don't really know anything about mainframes would you recommend it?
I donâ€™t want to get too personal, but I would really like an insiders point of view, as Iâ€™ve decided to give it a shot, and would just like to research the subject as thoroughly as possible.
How have you experienced the mainframe environment?
I agree google is your friend, thatâ€™s how I found this site. However I.T. and mainframe jargon is not so friendly to a beginner
