Database Specialists


The use of computers and database systems in almost all business settings creates tremendous opportunities for well-qualified database personnel. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) predicts that database administrators will experience faster than average job growth from 2018 to 2028. According to the DOL, "the increasing popularity of database-as-a-service, which allows database administration to be done by a third party over the Internet, could increase the employment of DBAs at cloud computing firms in the data processing, hosting, and related services industry. Employment of database administrators is projected to grow 21 percent in this industry from 2018 to 2028."
