Hi all,

I need your help/advice in shaping up my career. I have 3+ yrs of experience in Backend Pl/Sql Development+Query Tuning Experience and I am a 9i Developer OCP + 9i DBA OCP. Now I want to become a full time Oracle DBA.

My plan, as of now, is :
- To do additional certifications (like 10g OCP Upgrade Exam)
- Join some company as a Junior Oracle DBA and gain valuable Real time DBA work experience.

1) Kindly please advice me regarding whether this plan is right/valid.
2) Also I am worried regarding whether there will be growth in DBA field. In other words, 10 years from now, Will I still be a DBA or Is it possible to move into management line like DBA Manager etc...Kindly please help me.

If you want to be a Computer Manager then do accounting and business management. Exceptional DBAs have a different 'psychy' to good managers. I have never seen one make the transition and be happy.
