    Database Administrators

    Hi, I'm a student at DeVry University, Long Beach, CA studying Computer Information Systems. I'm working on a research paper on the career field of Database Administration. I was hoping to give a short and basic questionnaire to any Database Administrators willing to assist me in my paper. The questionnaire can be completed in less than 10 minutes (possibly 5 mins) and i would really appreciate your help. Would you please help me out and suggest a means of giving you the questionnaire (email or private message, etc)?

    Thanks!

    Thanks...it's just that they're not random questions appropriate for a poll. It's more like a short questionnaire....specific to your own experience....would you be willing to help me out?
