It is kinda hard to get candidates who have networking, sysadmin, db skills. There is no one to blame for such state of affairs except for the industry. Nowadays, employing a person is like buying a commodity, so that companies can easily replace(buy) commodities (an oracle dba with another; a db2 dba with another; solaris admin with another solaris admin).
