A Good Time To Be an Oracle DBA
I have come across a very good article by Paul Sorensen , Director of Oracle Certification. Here it is ... I ’ve seen a few articles lately that remind us that - in spite of the current economic climate - it is a good time to be a Database Administrator, both now and in the future.
In aCNN articlethe author lists Database Administrator (DBA) as one of the Top Ten Promising jobs with solid job growth outlook over the next several years. Additionally, a US-orientedsalary surveyindicates encouragingly high salaries for DBAs and Senior DBAs. Most importantly what these articles both indicate is that the DBA job role indeed continues to be a critical, high paying role with solid future prospects.
Now as much as ever, DBAs of all skill levels should look to shore up their skill sets and resumes. Certification can be a relatively inexpensive (although not easy) way to enhance your credibility and prospects while adding to your skills and knowledge.
As you evaluate your current situation, remember to consider certification as a part of your career-planning strategy – whether you need to upgrade, have never certified before, or are looking to specialize with an Expert designation.
