Preview: Oracle Certification Salary Survey Results
By Harold Green on Jul 16, 2009
Thanks to everyone who participated in our salary survey. We are busy working to compile, summarize and publish the results. The information will be available through the Oracle certification website and I’ll let you know through the Oracle Certification Blog when it is ready.
In the meantime however, I'd like to share some pre-release details that are interesting:
- Certified professionals earn over 13% more than non-certified counterparts.
- Years of experience in a role makes a big difference in overall compensation.
- Pay between various job roles (architect, developer, administrator) can be markedly different.
- Professionals who have earned more than one Oracle certification earn more than those hold one, and typically - the more certifications that you hold, the more likely you are to earn more.
I’ll discuss specific results in more detail when the salary survey results become available, and give my perspective on what it means to certification-holders and those considering certification.
I look forward to your comments and thoughts!
Director, Oracle Certification
