    Yikes.

    You can't seriously be thinking about taking on a responsibility that requires managment of a Unix based system with no knowledge of it.....or can you?

    Will this position give you the opportunity to "brush up" prior to start date?

    And what kind of resume did you submit to land an interview for a position like this? Did you fudge/pad/embellish just a little?

                Okay Sheraz, this makes more sense now. You applied through uni and not directly in response to some ad with the above shown prerequisites.

                I've got your resume. I'll take a look at it and see if there are any pointers I can give you. When is the interview?

                Also....perhaps you can run a search on yahoo or google.com and do some background reading on UNIX.

                I know a couple of people that could give you a general understanding but I don't know if they will have time right away to come and post here.

                Let's see how we can pull together and get you ready for this interview. Inshallah we'll see that you, at the very least, feel confident going in.

                  Just realized.....

                  Sheraz,

                  Let's work on your resume and interviewing tips here.

                  For UNIX help....post a request in the Technology section. You'll find a more targetted audience there.

                    hey sheraz dont freak out... unix is not that tough I took its classes ..its a cool operating system just grap a Unix book and get familiar with its command its somewhat similar to DOS.. They gonna train you before you are given any responsibilty.
                    I worked in Unix system during internship I didnt even have a clue but they trained me well to cope with it..
                    Grab the unix book, read it and go to different unix sites in internet I bet you will find alot of em, try to get some idea and basic understanding of this operating system.
                    maintenance and upgradation thingy you will definitely learn by experience..

                            Sheraz ji:

                            Dont panic...UNIX is not very difficult...its definitely a very powerful and robust operating system....much better than the Bill Gates' funky windows (def. not in terms of user-friendliness)..(but otherwise, the comparison would be the same as an educated intellectual woman and a blonde bartender..) http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/wink.gif

                            As far as initial learning goes, no offence, just grab the *UNIX for Dummies* - its the best book on UNIX you can assimilate overnight...but I don't recommend taking up the job dealing with UNIX administration until you have thorough understanding of it...
