The links on the referring page dont work. You will get a javascript error: Line:43 Char: 2 Error: 'i' is undefined Code: 0 URL: I tested in IE and FF and tried in all country options and get the same thing for all of them.

Here is the full link in case the BITLY link doesn't work for you: Thanks for the alert!

Paul - I tried the links you posted - both the BITLY and full link in multiple browsers and cannot access the report. The links bring me to the country select page and none of the region links open the report. Thanks. - Shartel

Ah, am learning something new every day (thanks Shartel) - word has it that this might just simply be a cookie issue: when you get to the country select page, select your country and I believe that you will be taken to the Certification home page -- from there you should be able to access the survey results by clicking on center button at the very bottom of the page - "View the Results Oracle Certification Salary Survey 2009."

surely that is BS? I got certified and didn't get anything more... and I took part in that survey... but then I am going to change jobs, ditch oracle and get paid more just for what I did before that anyway... so maybe it was just my employer...

Every link on that page refers to the current page - i.e. you can't see any results

Sorry to hear that Hari - I agree that there are other factors too that can affect salary. So I'll encourage you to continue using your certification as a bragging point - many are benefitting from the certification and I hope to see you gain the benefits as well!

Vijay - get on some projects that you can add to your CV/resumé. Try checking around on the OTN Forum for some opportunities and advice from your peers - possibly even in your local area.

Hi, I'm an OCA certified in DBA and Developer. I'm having 2.5 years of experience in Oracle SQL and PL/SQL development. However, i got lot of opportunities in Developer track but yes, for DBA track i couldn't find any for less than 3 yrs exp. For that too they want RAC and Hot backup skills. Kindly advise how to proceed with Oracle DBA track, as gaining theoretical knowledge only will not help and no body wants to give job in DBA track.

hi everyone i am sravani recently got job and domain is data ware housing so how the future will be i want to know about it.Please post your suggetions.

Gaurav underscores an important point, and that is that although certification is powerful way to augment your experience, it is not a "substitute" for it. Preparing for an Oracle Certification requires the candidate to obtain a significant collection of knowledge and skills, but the power is in the application of it all. It is therefore important to get experience on projects using these key skills and knowledge to be most productive and competitive.

Hi Paul, You suggested many people to work on projects. How can we work on projects if we dont have job and are looking for it? As a fresher in this field it is difficult to be entrant!
