I finished the CIW Enterprise Developer track (including SCJP) early this year and got hired as a CIW instructor. Nice. But CIW doesn't bring what was expected so my employer asked me to make a study plan to broaden my (internet related) skills.
My question is, which way to go? What's hot? Should I go further on Java (SCJD?) or migrate to (brr!!!) to .NET? Or does anyone see any other oppertunities?
Hope to get some independent adveice!
TIA, Erik Dark

I think it really depends on your goals, long-term.
Aside from SCJD, Sun offers the SCWCD and SCJEA examinations, both of which cover J2EE. There's also the jCert track which includes J2EE and UML exams. Beyond these, IBM offers an exam in XML technologies, and there are other companies with their own offerings that overlap into Java.
Something to consider.

..anything heated !!
my vote is for JCert and J2EE .
 
Seriously? That's what you're going with? I prefer this tiny ad:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
