I was a scientist(Phd level). In my work I used some oracle database. One day in 1998, I find a job as a oracle dba(career change) and worked for about three years, like a jr or mid level dba. From last april, the firm I worked with is closed down.
For a better job, I think I should get certified before I get back into the job market. It is proved foolish and wrong. Ever after I am certified dba 8i, I can no longer find any work. A friend of mine said to me most the sr. dbas are not certified, they hates people certified and suggest I don't put certification on my cv. It is weired and pathetic, right? But is it true? Please help me!!!
