I need your kind support. I have more than 6yrs of exp in s/w industry. I have worked on some DW technologies which are out dated. For almost 1 year I was on bench.During this bench period I learnt cognos on my own using online docs. Hence I am alligned to a project few months ago to work on cognos. Unfortunately after joining this project I did not get opportunity to work on cognos. I am working on different things apart from cognos. I should get job in another company. Otherwise I am gone. I am confident enough to get job on Cognos in another company. Please let me know is it possible to work on Cognos at lead position (as my current position is at lead level) without having real time experience. Your response is highly appreciated and I will be grateful to you. Thanks in advance Ganesh
