  Forbes rates DBA as happiest job in 2015

Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonApril 14, 2015

While becoming a DBA  remains a challenge, those who make the grade find happiness, according to Forbes Magazine.  With  an average Oracle DBA salary of over $100,000, it is easy to see why the Oracle DBA is happy.

The life of a successful DBA can be fun and glamorous

The DBA job role is growing across the world, especially for consultants and high-end technical DBA's, indispensible for the success of corporations, large and small.

Forbes Magazine notes that the DBA job is the happiest job in 2015 and predicts jobs rising by 15% over the next decade:

"Why does database administrator rank as the No. 1 happiest job, and what exactly does the work entail? Here's the Bureau of Labor Statistics description of the job:

"Database administrators (DBAs) use specialized software to store and organize data, such as financial information and customer shipping records. They make sure that data are available to users and are secure from unauthorized access."

That may not sound too exciting, but according to the BLS, the job is reasonably well-compensated with a mean annual wage of $79,000 and the demand for DBAs is on the rise.

The BLS predicts the field will grow by 15% between 2015 and 2022.

 Golledge says the job has become more popular as DBAs' roles have changed, with technology moving to the center of what many businesses do.

 "Because of their importance inside organizations, they can be the key driver of success," she says. In the survey, DBAs gave especially high marks for the quality of their daily tasks and for job control."
