Changing career track for a DBA

5 pts.

Hello, I am working in IT from last 6 years as an Oracle DBA. I worked in few small companies in my home town (home town is not a Oracle technology hub) to gain the experience as DBA and after I moved to metro and joined a big company as DBA. But due to some unavoidable family conditions I came back to my home town leaving my job within a year and joined some other company. In current company I am only managing servers backup using Symantec Netbackup. I am becoming frustrated day by day as I am not getting any new work and not learning anything. Meanwhile I am also losing my knowledge. Now I am considering to change my career track from a DBA to some thing else but not able to decide. Please guide me. Thank you Pranav

    A DBA monitor optimize system can install configure troubleshoot maintain database system along with other duties. For an increase in pay try PL or SQL server integration services

    You did not reveal your academic/professional qualifications. Hope you are from IT/computer background and you have gained experience in the area of database. Now you wanted to change, but as per your present condition, you can learn pl/sql programming (if you do like coding) and oracle report. Also if you have some system related knowledge (hope so) you can try for global certification like Microsoft/Cisco.

    Instead of looking for a major change and then losing everything it is better to expand your horizons at the same place. May be start with a check if you are following global standards for backup management or there is a gap. Upskill accordingly. Moreover, look for some opportunities of server administration, DBA, network administration, secutiry specialist etc. at the same place.
