What is Database Administration?
Database administration simply means that the administrator is watching over and protecting a company’s data. They are responsible for tracking how the company uses databases to catalog all information and store it. The database administrator secures the data collection and manages it through best practices and by managing lower-level employees.
Database administrators work in virtually every industry in the state: healthcare management, finance, education, and more. Projected employment for professionals in database administration is predicted to grow faster than the average for other occupations. Professionals in this field also earn higher salaries than many other U.S. wage earners. Looking at the numbers, 1,300 database administrators were working in Connecticut in 2018.
Database administrators may find the highest numbers of job openings in the Hartford-West and East Hartford areas. Other good places to look for positions are in the Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk area.
