Interview Tips for Aspiring Junior DBAs
Interview Tips for Aspiring Junior DBAs: "Finally, after countless hours of scouring the Internet, you have come across a job posting for a junior Oracle DBA position, which includes the words you have been waiting for all this time: 0-2 years experience (zero being the operative word or number here). Armed with your fresh, just out of school knowledge of Oracle (and combined with virtually no workplace or on the job experience), what can you do to improve your odds of being hired? Obviously, no one expects you to be the world's next Oracle Certified Master, but on the other hand, if your academic background includes several database administration courses, no one expects you have a blank stare on your face when asked to name five types of constraints on a table. If you find yourself going off to la-la land, try to minimize the damage by not drooling and hope everyone else stumbles on that question."
