Careers in Database Design
Designing databases is important work for any organization. It takes essential information and abstract relationships and organizes them into a readily accessed system. The database designer, developer, administrator, or specialist establishes a database, improves an existing one, and defines special relationships between the pieces of information within it. The work can involve updating, maintaining, and repairing databases and improving their performance. It may also include providing equipment and software requirement specifications to management, controlling access to the system, and training users.
The California Employment Development Department (EDD) collects data about the state’s workforce. These data include information about the number of people employed in the field, job outlook, and wage information. The California EDD predicts for the period 2008-2018 the number of openings for database administrators to increase by nearly 12% and network and computer systems administrators to increase by nearly 16%.
