In order to start or further an Oracle developer career, you must be a coder and an administrator. You do not need extensive experience in administration, but you should have more than the basics to start. You will be planning and designing a database with a structure that meets the client's needs—current and future—for data storing and reporting. You will need to know how to code, as developmental languages are used to develop the database applications. You will need to have a firm understanding of SQL and/or PL/SQL and will need to know how to use Form Builder and Report Builder.
Because many applications use the Internet, you should also be equipped with Internet skills, especially in e-commerce and marketing arenas. A developer requires logical thinking and attention to detail, and these things can show in how you present yourself in an interview. Outline your resume so that you can show all of these skills in addition to coding and testing skills.
