Database Administration One of the Fastest Growing Occupations

Posted by Rubel Khan on May 29, 2010

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.
