Database Administration One of the Fastest Growing Occupations

Hi Everyone,

There is an interesting new article in Certification Magazine that reports that database administrator is one of the fastest-growing occupations. It also provides a good 'day in the life of a DBA' narrative. If you are either considering a career as a DBA or are seeking to move your career forward as a DBA, you should definitely take a look at this article.

If you're familiar with our Global Salary Survey (conducted in 2009) you might remember that on average - certified DBAs earn more than $8,000 more per year than non-certified DBAs. Also from our Global Salary Survey, we found that database administrators who have a lot of experience are earning just under $100,000 per year. So even in a tough economy it's a great time to be a database administrator, and if you are not Oracle-certified - it's a great time to consider certification as a way to (1) build your credibility, (2) increase your marketability and (3) improve your career.

I agree. As an Oracle certified professional it opens doors. Now I am working on my R12 EBS OCP, Oracle 10g Application Server OCA/OCP and then upgrade my 10g OCP to 11g OCP as I look for new work.
