If you have experience as a DBA and you intend to pursue a career as a DBA, it would make sense to look at getting an OCP in the DBA track-- presumably whatever version of Oracle you use and have experience with. So assuming you've been a DBA for a 10g database for 10 months, it probably makes sense to start working towards a 10g OCP DBA certification.
If your intention is to become an Oracle developer rather than a DBA, it probably makes sense to work towards an OCP on the developer track.
I would expect that if you want to work for Oracle in the future, you'd apply just like any other candidate. Listing your certifications on your resume/ CV would be appropriate at that time.
Whichever certification corresponds to the job you're doing and the job you want to do is likely to be the most valuable. If you want to be a DBA and have experience as a DBA, a DBA certification is going to be more valuable. If you want to be a developer and have experience as a developer, a developer certification is going to be more valuable.
