Business software: big demand, pays well

Technology

There are big demands for workers skilled in OneStream and Oracle EPM software. People with one or two years of experience in OneStream are hard to find (as they are already hired). I can share my experiences counseling other middle or high school students on how to get into this field. OneStream is not yet taught in Universities, so I don't have to compete with college graduates with computer science degrees. Many of my colleagues have degrees in engineering, computer science and business accounting. They switched from their original majors into this field because there is so big a demand for workers that employers will train people in this language
