I have a bachelors Degree in IT. I have zero experience, I am interested in working in management rather than on a technical track. I would like to work in banks or telecommunication companies rather than pure IT companies. I planed to study Oracle financial Solutions, and some modules in ERP SAP things.my future plan is to study MBA ( after 5 years of getting enough experiance) my question is?? am I thinking right?? or I should study something else? What is IT job market?… What kinds of certifications I should take?? What kinds of sAP modules I should take?? What is the job market of these certifications?… What kind of job I have to start doing? Where I would like to be PM in the near future.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Having a bachelor’s degree in IT is a very good foundation. Nothing will prepare you better for management than knowing what you are managing.
That means getting in the IT trenches and doing the job you may eventually manage. Doing that will give you greater value in a tightening IT job market. I have worked for IT managers that have come in fresh from college that did not have real world IT experience and they have not lasted very long.

I agree. Good luck finding someone that will hire you for a management position without any experience.

    You're going to have to decide exactly what it is that you want to get involved in. What's the best way to do this? Get some experience in that specific field. If you have to take an intern or volunteer job in the field to see what it's like and make sure you're going down the right path. Also, get out and network with others in that field. Look for specific networking events and even seminars and conferences where you can go speak with others who are already doing it and get their feelings, feedback, and pointers.
