We can read that DBA work was in decline or outsourcing in 2003 at https://asktom.oracle.com/pls/asktom/f?p=100:11:0::::P11_QUESTION_ID:14039738984108 and the trend continued.
My apps which use SQL are expected to work without a DBA. So you need to consider that DBA is an extinct species.
Hi , glad I found this forum where I can post my query .. I worked as an oracle dba in 2011 I got a break when I came Usa I cloud it work ( don't have work authorization ) .. Right now I would like to start my career n there is a huge 5 years gap in my resume .. Please advice from where to start .. These years I just learned some latest concepts like rac , data guard but don't have real experience .. Recruiters are not interested to set up interview due to this gap .. They ask what I did these years .. I said I learned some courses online but it's not satisfactory ..
I have OCA certification can joining in community college n doing some certification or course will increase my options of getting hired .. What are other ways which increases my job hunt ..
