    hi

    a couple of years ago you could ask for 10 ~ 15% more but now days 0% because there are too many paper OCPs

    Sweetie, I think it depends. If you're looking for a job where the state
    has many DBAs with OCP and experiences. You will not get the salary
    what you're looking for. What do you all think?

    From life experience, guys with 10 years DBA experience do feel bad when they see jr. dbas with OCP. Recent Graduate unemployment shouldn't stop high school kids from thinking about college. No knowledge is useless paper, certificate or whatever

    The real focus should be on experienced DBA without OCP vs. experienced DBA with OCP. The OCP will add value to that person.

    Also, the inexperienced DBA with OCP will be able to get his foot in the door much easier than the inexperienced DBA without OCP!!

    That's the comparison that the focus should remain on.

    dont want to be a **** but for example I see OCPs in this forum ask really basic questions

    and I am not certified neither but I do spend my time trying out stuffs

    sometimes I wonder, if OCP can boost you knowledge why there are OCPs ask really basic questions

    I am talking about paper OCPs

    Biggest advantage with OCP (as long as you didn't cheat), is the exposure to all aspects of the product. You may not fully understand a concept, but you are aware of its existence and how it might be used to provide a solution.

    I recently ran into a data warehouse system designed by an experience DBA (3 years+) ... the DBA had no idea of bitmap indexes and how they can be used on columns in a where clause with low-cardinality.

    There is such a thing as experience and then there is real experience. I have ran into guys with one year who would run circles around guys with 5 years that never did much more then change back up tapes.
