Becoming a DBA without experience

I have obtained both Oracle9i Professional (OCP) and Oracle9i Associate (OCA) certificates and have a background in ADA programming. I am a bit confused on how to get experience in this field as every company requires at least two to three years' experiences for the DBA position. Please guide me or share your experience on how you started your career in this field.

On my Web site, I have a white paper titled "Grow That DBA Career" which discusses your question. Please check it out!
