Sainath's Advice on Sunday, July 01, 2012 :
I have already answered your question partly as a response to another question posted by you. In terms of soft skills, verbal and written communication skills, ability to track issues, etc are important. In terms of hard skills, it depends upon the kind of client on whose behalf you will be working. The point is, a start can definitely be made and definitely qualified ITIL professionals having real-world experience of being part of successful ITIL implementations definitely have a career path ahead of them. But in the initial stages, you may need to put in a little bit of effort for a year or so.
