....well, if most companies adopted a WAH policy, then Chris could be
the DBA for all IDMS sites. I'm sure he wouldn't mind the revenue. But
on a serious note, I was a 'remote' DBA at a client site, and it is not
a desirable situation, for the DBA or the people he/she supports. A
considerable part of a dba's job is political in nature, and working
remotely it's impossible to understand who's doing what to whom, and
it's difficult to head things off at the pass. A remote DBA becomes
interrupt driven, the interrupt being a request for service, after
decisions have been made and often at a point where problems are
interfering with deadlines.

Ok, truth be told, I only wrote this message to see if it still contains
garbled characters in the message text.

Hi Leslie

I hope the job in Zurich wasn't an IDMS DBA because I believe the only job
in Zurich is mine and I didn't know I was leaving!

On the other hand, Switzerland is not a bad place to live and if you can
speak some French then I know of a place in Geneva which still needs a new
DBA to replace someone who actually managed to get to retirement age
before the IDMS rug was pulled. I can't say who but a few good keywords in
Google should point you in the right direction.

The rules for getting a permit if you are an EU citizen are much easier
since the 2002 CH/EU/EFTA agreement and Swiss Francs are very reassuring
things to have lying around in your bank account.

Easyjet from London to Geneva is faster (75 minutes) and often cheaper and
more reliable than my old commute from Guildford to London with South West
Trains. Combine that with a salary of around double the amount you could
expect in London and a much more favourable tax rate than the UK and you
might well benefit from a swift ""Teach yourself French"" course. It's
easier to learn than Swiss-German.

Vive la IDMS.

Good luck in your search.

Mit freundlichen Grüssen

Re: Goodbye Career?






Speaking as someone already in the job-hunting boat: I live near London in
the UK and was made redundant at the end of March due to the company
moving its
datacenter to Eastern Europe. I took the summer off to de-stress but I
kept
my eye out on the online job sites. My experience is strictly IBM
Mainframe,
though I had a UNIX and a few Oracle classes. I never used the Oracle as
a
DBA, so I really don't have any experience there. I am searching mostly
for
either DBA or programming work in the London area. I have never worked
with DB2
or CICS.
So far my observations have been: Most programming/DBA jobs want either
Oracle, Java, C++ (and its variants), SQL Server, Sybase or .NET. If
there is a
mainframe job going, there is normally a requirement for CICS/DB2 in
addition
to Cobol. The few ads I have seen that mention IDMS are either up north
(Scotland, Midlands England) or they are in Continental Europe
(Netherlands,
Zurich, Germany). I have considered retraining but then I will probably
have
spent a ton of money and chances are I will run into the 'no experience no
job'
syndrome that we all encountered as brand new programmers. (And since I
have
been in IT since 1979, I also have my age against me.).So while I am still
keeping an eye out for positions that I qualify for, I am also looking
into a
career change (as what I don't know yet).

14.1 is dead. Long live 14.1!

And for those of us who haven't upgraded yet, I have a quick survey. By
show of e-mails, how many are still running 14.x and how many are still
running, um, er older versions?
