MCSE vs Oracle DBA-Proj. Mngmnt–>CIOLocked
I am a Helpdesk/Technician(A+ cert.) 4 years exp. want to know more about duties and work habits of an MCSE vs Oracle DBA and where each of the jobs lead eventually. The target is to be CIO/VP of I.T. I have 3 Bachelor degrees, MIS, Marketing, Bus, Admin.(long story).Still interested in pursuing an MBA in few years. 1.Do Network Administrators have similar work hours as do Oracle DBA’s? 2.Can either job lead to Project Management with a stepping stone to CIO? Should I get a Job with a consulting firm that will train i.e. The Revere group which has entry level-Project Management/ I.T.jobs and skip the certs? If I go for any certs which would be better to get? I’m deciding between MCSE/Oracle DBA cert (If the Oracle DBA job requires too muchprogramming then I’ll skip Oracle DBA but from info. I’ve gathered, there hardly is any programming except for writing batch files, sql statements pl-sql. Do I need any of these certs to move up to Project Managent?
