Career Focus Tip #5: Database Careers

Posted on 6/21/12 9:08 AM by Get Schooled in Access, in Brian Parker, in Career Development, in Database careers, in Guest Blogger, in Guest Bloggers, in IBM DB2, in IT Career, in Microsoft, in MySQL, in Oracle, in SQL Server, in Tips & Tricks

GUEST BLOGGER: Brian Parker, Technical Instructor

Database management is broken into three general sections: design, engineering (or development) and database administration (DBA). Sometimes the designers and engineers work together, or one person may fill both roles. Once the database is designed and developed, then the administrators make minor tweaks as needed and manage the data to ensure consistency and continuity. Database admins also work to clean, archive and compress the database to ensure optimal operation. In smaller businesses, these jobs are almost non-existent, so look to larger corporations that manage large quantities of data for positions.

Having said that, I do believe anyone can understand programming at least a little and I highly recommend technicians consider taking an introductory programming language class or two. If you like sitting in a room, staring at the computer screen for many hours every day just to solve a puzzle, then this is the right career for you! Also, with the rise of the “app” on smartphones and tablets, more people are able to take simple ideas and turn them into profitable ventures. Here are some of my top recommendations for programming languages and why:
