Just passed the SCJD (I went SCEA before SCJD), and now have all three - SCJP, SCJD, and SCEA. I wasn't able to find any posts of any others who have done the same. Are there any statistics on the number of people who have all three?

Well there are 4, counting SCWCD, and I have heard quite a few people that have them... don't know where to check the stats though.

Does that help you get a job? I heard many people with those still cannot find a job.

I think it helps... but nothing can beat real experience. The stuff I learned in school is really nothing compared to how real enterprise systems work. The best thing I learned while getting my BS in CS from Purdue was how to learn and that learning is an ongoing process. The java certs are just a little perk for me in my continuing studies.
All in all, dont put to much in the fact that you have certs, but hopefully that you learned from getting the certs.
