Hello guys,
can I take 1Z0-808 exam if I am unemployed? I payed and scheduled an exam and I got confirmation email with link for authentication cert view. I followed that link and it asks me for Oracle account. When I wanted to create an account, I couldn't because job title and company are mandatory fields. What should I do now

Honestly, I think it is just for Oracle's statistics. I don't think it matters that much.

Personally, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to take the exam even if you are unemployed but there are other people here who know much more about Oracle's processes than I do.

@OP

Isn't there an option "Student" or something else which wouldn't require specify company?

I agree with Brecht on that, that is most likely for some formalities and nothing else. Try to put your university or school name and as a job title write student or pupil and that should be ok.

Yes, but I am not a student.
Anyhow, I got an answer from their help desk that I can enter N/A, for anyone with the same dilemma in the future ...
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
