I feel the collective pain here in this thread.
I have spent the last year working on my Oracle DBA. I finally got it and can't even get an interview. My situation is that I don't have any experience...only classroom time and my certification. I also don't have a security clearance, I don't think it will be a problem to get one but the employers all seem to want an existing clearance.
So if anyone knows of a shop that will give an entry level DBA a chance I would love to hear about it.
PS, I also trained for my MCSE in NT but didn't have enough time to certify before they dropped the tests for NT.
Will work for scoobie snacks.
