It all depends on what certifications you hold, your experience, location, field, etc. There's no way to say for sure just because of the number of variables. If you're interested in doing this, I recommend looking into taking some classes and getting certified.I see. How much do these jobs pay? 70K?
This entire post made me smile. Thank you.Who here has such a job? Obviously you are on Windows. What software you using? MsAccess?

DB Admins can, but are not 'obviously' on Windows.
They can, but most often do not use MSAccess.
DB Admin's is a very broad category ranging from MSAccess to NASA Aerospace 6NF ( 6th Normal Form ) for spacecraft / lander missions ( I doubt they use this today ). Still, that range puts far too much of a constraint on what a DBA can do. They most often know SQL, but this base requirement has been shifting for the last 5 years or so to more linear DB models as the world moves from 'big data' to 'fast data', with mobile pushing the paradigm shift. They have experience with Oracle, MS SQL and more currently NoSQL databases. Most importantly, they have mastered the 'magic' of creating a database scheme from a requirements document.
I have not written an SQL backend in the last 6 years or so. Everything has been NoSQL.
The pay can range from $20k/US per year to $20k/US per month depending on expertise.
