I was lucky enough way back to work for a small company that I was the default DBA since there were no other It people. The databases crashed many many times and I learned how to be a DBA by fixing it all the time. I got good at knowing what to look for and how to fix things from all the different causes of the crashes.
In my experience and from others I have worked with, you can read all the books you want, take all the tests you want, but until you actually recover a database in practice, you would be hard pressed to find employment as a DBA.
Like anacedent said, start as a developer and work your way to DBA, but beware of what you wish for.
Download Oracle 10g or now 11g and practice on it by doing bad things Wink and see how good you are at fixing the database.

You should not be responding to "normal" DBA roles, you are wasting your time and that of the company.

Some companies hire junior or trainee DBAs. The job requires a special type of person - not your every-day programmer - so many firms will find the right TYPE of person and then train them into the role with an experienced DBA or team of DBAs.

Such a company would explicitly advertise for such a role, or more likely select a programmer from within. If you don't see any of the aforementioned advertisements, interview as a progammer and ask if they would consider a transition to trainee DBA after 12 months.
