Not sure I follow. What company would segregate their operations staff based on the platform? Usually the operators are very much hardware/software agnostic and tend to support pretty much everything across the board. Doesn't your company provide cross-training opportunities? How about internships?

Hello,

What IBM training did you attend? Do you want to become an IBM operator or move from operations to something else?

Many training institutions also have job placement assistance. Have you talked with the prople who provided the IBM course?
Hope this helps,

Hello,

i need a guidence..
Suggest you talk with the people at "artech infotech" and ask what they recommend. Hopefully, other people who have taken their training have found jobs. . .

You might also look on the websites of organizations that use IBM mainframes and see what kinds of jobs they are trying to fill.

One other thought i can offer is that looking for a job is a major effort. It will take several hours a day and can be quite repetitive. While posting on some job websites may help, directly applying to the organization can be more productive (at least it has been for me and many others of my acquaintance).
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
