I hope this is the right place to as this question.
I just earned a Bachelor's degree in Management Information Systems and I'm interested in becoming a Database Admin. However, I'm a little confused on how to go about this without experience in the field. Do DB certificates hold any weight in the field? Would you recommend getting something like your Oracle OCA/OCP?
If you do recommend something like the Oracle OCP, do you have any study materials you could recommend?
