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 a CNN article  the 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-oriented salary survey indicates 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.
