Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Foundations 2020 Associate How I passed Oracle Exam: 1Z0-1085-20 Without Any Formal Training

First of all, let me introduce myself to you. I’m an IT professional with a solid background in Oracle database. By the end of 2019 our organization made the final decision to migrate to a cloud platform and gradually abandoning the on-premises infrastructure. The decision was an outcome of months of brainstorming. The decisive factors behind the decision were cost-cutting and simplification of infrastructure.  Being an existing satisfied Oracle customer, our company chose Oracle for cloud services as well. This transition brought many new challenges for the employees. Almost all of us were familiar only with the name of cloud computing. What cloud computing is and how it works was beyond our scope of knowledge back then. I myself believe in taking career challenges head-on.

When I was first employed, Oracle was something new for me. My only background was a college degree with a basic introduction to the database. I started learning Oracle database while being on job. I learned a lot about Oracle in a short time. Within three years I became proficient with Oracle database. That was the time when I thought about moving to a better job. I started dropping my CV at every new opening that came to my knowledge. At that time I was thinking about myself being a master in Oracle database but the response I was getting from the market was shocking for me. Most of the time I was not even called for the first interview let alone be shortlisted. Few interviews that I was called for ended up in disappointment as they never called me again. I tried to know the reason and I was told that I was underqualified for the job.

I started losing confidence in my skills. Then I consulted an old friend of mine doing a very lucrative job in the same field. We both started our professional careers with a difference of a few months only. He thoroughly checked my credentials and professional knowledge and then asked if I had some certification. I replied with a NO followed by why should I need a certification when I already know what I have to do. He asked me how would I know that you know? I was a bit fumbled but then I replied that you can evaluate me in the practical environment. He was amused by my reply and said do you think the employer has enough time to do this with more than a dozen people who applied for that job? That was the moment when the whole idea of certifications was explained to me in a flash. Then we had a long session over the certifications. I came back home with a resolve for the certification in the Oracle database.  He advised me about how to prepare for the exam and gave me some pro tips.

With a solid background in the Oracle platform and his preparation tips, I passed the Associate exam in less than a month. Keeping the same pace I earned both Professional and Master certification in the timeframe of six months. In that process, I took help from various online training resources including PDF study guides, braindumps,  and practice tests. I didn’t apply for a single vacancy during that period. Once I was done with my certifications I started applying for the new positions. With 100% success rate I was shortlisted wherever I applied as my practical experience was being supported and validated by my certifications. Very soon I got the right job which was exactly according to my expectations and experience. Giving this much detailed background was to tell you about how I started believing in certifications.

Jumping back to the latest scenario when we were told by the organization that we’re moving to Oracle Cloud, the first thing which came into my mind was to equip myself with the foundation level of knowledge of the Oracle Cloud before any of my colleagues. I’ve already learned my lesson about the validation of professional skills. But this time it wasn’t the same as before. While going for the Oracle database I was already having sufficient knowledge and hands-on experience of the same. That was not the case with Cloud. I browsed the Oracle University website and. Identified that Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Foundations 2020 Associate was the best certification to go for in my scenario. Passing the 1Z0-1085-20 exam dumps was the way to earn the certification. By earning 3 certifications I already had an idea about the preparation for the exam.

So I started by searching for the dumps. I found many websites offering the dumps and pdf study guides for the training of  1Z0-1085-20 but I found DumpsCafe to be most interesting and engaging.
