What is the best way to get started as AS/400 programmer? I have around six months of work experience in ASP. I am a mechanical engineer, and know C, Oracle, ASP, Java with overview of XML,WML and PERL Script.
There are many ways to get started as a AS/400 programmer. However, with limited experience and technical knowledge your search for a company that is willing to train can be very demanding. Stay employed in the technical field while conducting your search. Companies tend to first look at candidates that are employed. Have a resume that shows and backs-up your objective, i.e. work experience and school curriculum (including self teachings) emphasizing technology. Classifieds and Internet searches prove to be valuable.
