If you're like many people in the modern day workplace, you're looking for ways to grow your knowledge, challenge yourself, become a greater asset to your company, make yourself more marketable and improve your job satisfaction. Many people are looking for ways to stand out from the crowd by possessing a unique set of valuable skills that will warrant higher pay.
In the IT world, possessing Oracle Solaris System Administration skills can be that key differentiator to increase your earning potential.
Oracle Solaris System Administration Skills in High Demand
IT Managers often tell me that they have a hard time finding qualified Oracle Solaris System Administrators. These managers need people with a depth of knowledge to manage their infrastructure, but there aren’t enough highly qualified people to fill those roles. Since the most business critical operations are running on Oracle Solaris, it's important to employ people who are experts in administering those systems. Furthermore, these in demand technologists tend to be engaged in a more comprehensive part of the IT story within their businesses. And their advanced skills are rewarded with higher pay.
Oracle Solaris System Administrator Salary
Oracle Solaris System Administrators, on average, are on a substantially higher pay scale than other System Administration positions. They also tend to have a high job satisfaction rate. As the technologies available in Oracle Solaris continue to advance, their skills allow them to work on challenging projects that expand well beyond the common daily system administration tasks.
How to Become an Oracle Solaris System Administrator
Whether you're new to Solaris and want to work your way to become a senior level administrator, or you're an experienced System Administrator looking to move into Oracle Solaris, Oracle University offers courses to get you there. You can also invest in earning an Oracle Solaris System Administrator Certification to validate your skills and prove to employers you have the knowledge and skills they need.
