Start with the Oracle Concepts Guide (pdf). It will give you a good overview of everything related to Oracle databases and will give you a framework in which to place everything else you learn about Oracle. While you will by no means be a DBA after reading the guide, this is where you should start.

As a focus on more "soft skills" and career planning, I highly suggest "How to Become an Exceptional DBA" by Brad McGehee. It's a free e-book found here. It is a little geared towards a SQL Server career, but the tenet apply to all DBA careers.
