Hi,
Let me tell you my story. I have been in web development since 2 years with strong database knowledge of SQL Server, but newbie for Oracle though I have an OCP certification. I got less opportunity in Oracle. And the opportunities which I got were very less than what i was expecting.
So what i can conclude from my experience is, certify your self if you are a dba!
