    No need to bother getting a 10g certification.
    10g already decommissioned.

    The chances of getting a job as a DBA without a previous IT experience are close to none. A DBA position is most of the time the last technical position you would get after a much larger IT career starting as software developer or systems analyst. I myself started as an Assembly programmer many, many years ago.
