I am very interested in persuing an "Object-Oriented Analysis and
Design using UML" certificate. But I have several comments, questions
and concerns regarding this certificate and getting a job using this
skill set in the software industry. (see
My professional background includes 3 years of formal application
development (C language) and 5 years of software testing experience
(this includes black box testing as well as developing in VB, Java and
TSL automation scripting language) for a total of 8 years in the
software industry. My ideal job would be as follows: to accept a
requirements definition from the domain expert, build a suitable
design model based on the requirements using UML, and provide feedback
to the requirements definition process. I would also like to take part
in defining the system architecture using the UML.
Since I do not have a senior or principle level title of "software
development", is it still possible to work in the above ideal job?
Could anyone provide examples of people who have the "OOAD using UML"
certificate and have landed a job performing either what I described
above or what the course is teaching?
Thanks in advance
