Can anyone tell me about Database administration/management as a career option?
I am thinking of becoming a DBA but I need some more info and opinions about it, preferably from people who are already in that particular field. Any advice will be helpful. Thank you!

You have chosen a great career for what is ahead. You will most certainly be financially stable for awhile. However, you might encounter some retraining to keep up with technology. You could do a lot with that, almost everything uses technology.

focus on one database and become an expert on that particular one. It seems like Oracle DBA make the most but i don't have hard numbers to back up that claim. It can be challenging and rewarding work that pays well.
