Hi,

I work in a system administrator type role, managing and supporting things like server 2008, local network, AD, exchange, patching, workstation etc.

I also have been doing ssrs reports over last year or so and have been working with SQL server.

I am interested in doing sql server exam, but will this do me any good?, and what career path could I take?.

Doing exams will force you to learn about things that you haven't used in your daily job, so it will expand your knowledge on SQL Server. You might not be a professional in it, but at least you know it's existence. (for example, I know all the types of replication, but I'm not an expert in setting it up)

There are about 3 career paths in SQL Server:

* DBA (on-premises and/or in the cloud)
* database developer
* business intelligence developer

You don't need to do just one, you can mix them up a bit, but it is pretty hard to be proficient in all 3 at the same time.

In addition I would add that if you show signs of taking charge of your own training and development it shows that you have a commitment to your career. I do the certs as a way of showing that I am at a certain standard and that I am keen to maintain a professional standard.

Anything to keep your profile / CV flying high.
