Q

Value of Oracle Certified Professional (OCP) exam in landing entry-level job

A SearchOracle.com member asks, "Will taking the OCP Exams be beneficial to me in getting a DBA or Database Designer job?"

I have four years of experience teaching Oracle, SQL, and PL/SQL. I also have a Master's Degree in Computer Science. Now I want to switch to an IT job in a multinational corporation. Will taking the OCP exams be beneficial to me in getting a DBA or Database Designer job?
Yes. While OCP exams are no replacement for experience, they are the next best thing for people who want to demonstrate their knowledge of the concepts and perhaps land an entry-level DBA job.
