Dear Friends,

IMHO just certificates for the sake of certificates will not help. You already have 2 Sun certificates, complete the developer exam. It will show the depth of your knowledge, which is more likely to land you a job. Don't avoid it because it does not have a multiple-choice format. It will give you a better chance to get a foot in the door.
The key is experience, unfortunately it�s not gained in a hurry. You have to pay your dues.
 
This looks like a job for .... legal tender! It says so right in this tiny ad:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
