    Now I have got call for Junior DB2 DBA for Zos post.

    Friends please guide me on:

    1) What will be questions they can ask me?

    2) I am getting 2.5 Lakhs per annum,what will be my expected salary?
    I am completely unaware about package DB2 DBA is getting.

    3) I dont want to miss this opportunity,so what will be the X Factor to get
    selected?

    4) With bad luck, suppose If I loose this opportunity due to lack of DBA
    experience ,then How should I switch from developer to DBA?

    Waiting for your answers.

    $2,000/year for a DBA? Is this a joke, or the salaries in India are so low?

    Unbelievable, DBA's getting better pay than programmers. in Toronto,Canada, DBA's are getting someware from $55,000/year gross. IBM says DBA's should get around $93,000/year.

    If this is the case in India, we are going to loose jobs in Canada. Please donot tell this to Torontonians.

    Rs. 250,000/year is nothing, go ahead for DBA, or apply for canada, you will find a job around $55,000/yr, provided that total taxes are 35% and above ( that I am paying).

    denisvenis,
    I will try to sum up some questions by evening. currently Iam @work.
