I'm in now what's next .....

By jabney ·
Hello all,
I have been the IT field about six months. I am at a position that I don?t find desirable at this moment in time. I am in a reporting position. (Working with databases).
I want to make a move to bigger and better things. I want more of a DBA/DBO role. What steps do you think I need in order to get to that position? My short term goal is to become a Junior DBA. Are positions like that practical or possible to achieve at the level I am at now, or should I just cool down and stay a while ?? I need some guidance

Perfect Starting point

by ahar In reply to I'm in now what's next .. ...

Reporting is the perfect starting point for a DBA/O-career. You get to know the demand of the end-user and also the problems.
Being in a reporting position can also help you to improve your acceptance to decisionmakers you whould never meet as a dba/o, sitting behind closed doors and building 'deep thought'
My recommendation whould be to stay in there and make 'friends' to both sides
