Show 47 – How to Find a DBA Job with Brent Ozar

Download Episode (mp3)

Continuing the show from two weeks ago, we have another show with Brent Ozar we recorded when he was in Israel a few weeks ago.

This time, we talk about what a DBA needs to know in order to get a job in this day and age.

What should you know if you’re a junior DBA? what should you know if you’re a senior DBA? what are some interesting interview questions you might face?

We also spend a few minutes talking about SQL Server on Linux, whether it makes sense, what does it really mean, and what should any SQL Server professional know today.

    1. Hi Megha,
      You can go for the Microsoft MCSA and MCSE, but the most important thing is to gain experience, which is much better than certifications.
