dba's are supposed to have sound knowledge
as there r very few dbas in any organisation when compared to other professionals which makes their post highly responisible and critical one.
so it would be great if u can get direct job as dba,but if not then have some expirience in database programing and work on some live projets which will also help u for ur certification prog.

Shoot for the pure DBA job first. But, there are lots of jobs that combine database work and application development. Many firms don't both making the distinction between the two jobs.

If you can't get the DBA job (and unless you live in the boondocks I don't think this will be a problem), then go for the combined job.
