    Firstly you should understand the role of an Oracle Financials Consultant. See If you manage to become an apps financials consultant, you may have 3 kind of Job profiles

    1. Functional/Technical Consultant in a Consultancy
    2. Functional/Technical Consultant in an end-user company
    3. Functional/Technical Consultant in a development/support company

    Obviously 1 is the most coveted and highly paid job profile, but it is also the toughest and requires a lot of experience. Additionally being in a consultancy means lots of travel for extended periods of time (even 6 months). Point 2 also requires a lot of experience but would normally pay less. Point 3. may not require experience as much as 1 & 2 but it may pay the least.

    However neither of the above 3 job profiles are easy to get as there's a lot of competition. However what matters is how skilled are you and how much relevant project experience you have. Accounting background is good for Oracle financials. But you may have to take up a course and arm yourself with a couple of Oracle financials certifications before someone will hire you as you would have no real project experience. Learning is not difficult if you have good understanding of computers and finance, but it takes time like anything else.

    Hope this helped... :)
