Because the Oracle DBA job market is very competitive, you must market yourself in the best way possible for a recruiter to do more than just glance through your resume. One of the big things that gets your resume put into the “save” pile during the first go-through is that you have security clearance. Even if you do not have security clearance, having skills such as Oracle financials, SAP, PeopleSoft, 9i RAC, 9iAS and Unix carries a lot of weight with many recruiters. Development skills such as Java, J2EE and Windows also help an independent contractor secure an Oracle DBA job.
Make sure you have the skills for the job for which you are applying. If, for example, the company or recruiter is looking for someone with data modeling, and that is not on your resume (even if you do have that experience), your resume may be passed over.
If you have a degree, make sure its on your resume, especially if that degree is background for the job you are applying for. A finance degree will go a long way in securing an Oracle DBA finance job.
