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.
Thanks for your response.
I just need to have clarification that which OCP certification (DBA or Developer) has a good market value and will be more beneficial for my career in terms of salary :)
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.
