Hi Kartik,

My opinion about this:

1) DBA in Oracle - this is a well paying area. However, when you say you have worked in this area I hope you have done the following - DB performance tuning, DB capacity planning, DB monitoring & control, DB design for new projects,etc. The area is specialized but there is enough to learn - many DBAs do not tend to go beyond monitoring the DB thus restricting their skills

2) IIS Admin - this is a niche but important profile. Many companies whose entire software has been hosted on IIS usually require such a profile as part of their service delivery engagement.

Your overall profile seems to suggest that you have dabbled with many things - but identify your main area of interest against your aptitude and then make a choice.
