A friend recently pointed me to an article
related to the Top 10 skill sets for job opportunities in his area.
Interestingly - nearly HALF were based around Oracle technologies.
great to hear that jobs continue to be available; however - the
scarcity of some of these jobs (including tech-related jobs) reminds me of the
difference that certification can make in your job search.
Certification can be a relatively quick way to differentiate yourself,
and along with other important skills (communication skills,
problem-solving skills, etc.) and experience - can make the difference
in either getting a job or being passed over.
prepare for your certification through focused study, practice, and
training, you will increase your knowledge and expand your skill set; an investment in yourself that can have a very quick payback.
Oracle offers a variety of certifications in many technical areas - including many of those mentioned in the article. Visit certification.oracle.com to find out more.
