Achieving an Oracle Certification is an investment in yourself and in your future. Candidates who are serious about using the path to certification to deepen their knowledge and improve their skills, will benefit from an Oracle Certification through validated technical skills, expanded job opportunities, better salary and personal growth and satisfaction. However, we understand that the price tag on some of the core certifications can be challenging for individuals who are not backed by an employer.
Maybe crowdfunding could be your answer. With the holidays nearing, ditch the socks and t-shirts and ask for something that will keep giving for years to come. Although not officially endorsed by Oracle, sites like Indiegogo and Razoo make it easy to set a goal and request support and participation. Your friends and family will be happy to have an answer to the question of what to get you. Contributing to your certification goal is a sound investment in your future and will give them the satisfaction of a gift well chosen.
If you choose to go this route, there are a myriad of crowdfunding site options available. Please do your research before you sign up on one of these sites. The sites mentioned above are only sites familiar to the author and are not endorsed by Oracle in any way.
