CNN reports DBA jobs in high demand in 2015

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting
July 17, 2009

This 2009 CNN report shows that DBA jobs are among the top-10 upcoming careers for newly graduated college students.  There has never been a better time to start a job as a DBA, reports CNN, with DBA jobs increasing by 29%, while America reduces our dependence upon foreign H1B Visa workers.

As colleges start graduating new MBA, MSCS and IT students, the job of database administrator remains in high demand:

Database administrators
2006 Employment: 119,000
2016 Employment: 154,000
Percentage increase: 29
Best for: Computer science, information science or management information systems majors

Oracle Corporation has also noted the increasing demand for highly-paid DBA jobs:

“Most importantly what these articles both indicate is that the DBA job role indeed continues to be a critical, high paying role with solid future prospects”.

The DBA job is a mid-level management position with responsibility for a company’s all-important data resources, a mission-critical management job. 

Hence, the most successful DBA’s have a marriage of management skills and technical skills, and above all, a good DBA has outstanding English communications skills.

Here are notes on how to get a job as a DBA, and Oracle DBA job interview preparation tips.
