Looking for Growth as DBA ?

I am already DBA, having 5+ years experience. Looking for exponential growth, what should i do ? Irrespective of experience in Database administration, multiple database skills have become mandatory to grow from your current level. If you are Oracle DBA you can not ignore SQL DBA, MySQL DBA, Postresql DBA, Cassandra, Mongo DBA skills. Your DBA skills must include structured and unstructured DB knowledge which can leverage big size industries as well as mid or small size. Multiple DBA skills gives you advantages in Foreign migration (Early opportunity to get settled with multiple DB skills irrespective of your geolocation). One of our Oracle DBA migrated to Canada and was in Brampton (Toronto) where he found more SQL DBA opportunities. He took online classes for SQL DBA with us to tap those opportunities. He would have done this earlier if he had known this when in India. Freedom of relocation (You become confident that with your multiple db skills you will survive anywhere) Rare skills consideration (very few candidates have multiple db skills, your profile attracts lots of views because you can work and handle multiple Databases hence your employer does not have to hire multiple DBAs to admin multiple databases. For example : 10+ years experience DBA ask for 13 to 15 Lakhs + package but same person with multiple DB skills can earn 20+ lakhs or more package.) We at ITS, remain witness of such case studies in India itself. If you do not want to change job and location due to family constraint, you can take freelance assignment after job hours or weekend to have extra income....

Why should you invest in certification?

Why Certifications ? OR How certifications help in IT career ? Many students and professionals asks why they should invest in certification? From my 16 years experience with Oracle University i have found following 4 solid reasons to have certifications. 1) Certification helps many candidates in positive consideration during technical or hr interview process. (Today, one of our candidate selected at TCS for fresher position where his Java OCA certificate was appreciated. Candidate confirmed that his certification was given attention during his technical interview. 2) Many students are migrating to other countries for higher studies. Our student who enrolled for Course at one of the Canadian University recently was given credit against her DBA certifications as her major was Database related. 3) During campus interview at College, if you have earn certification priorly then, you can have choices to select job in your subject of interest rather then what employer is offering to you. For example, if you have earned Java certification, you can have bright chances to get Java project related assignment instead of .NET. 4) Multinationals and now leading software companies also give priorities to select certified students or professionals to have advantage in technical bid evaluation during tender process. International and government tender bids generally ask for better technical expertise to become qualify for tender / bid. I have seen many MNCs who do full or partial reimbursement of certification fees to their employees. Please follow and like...
