I have passed both SCJP and SCWCD. I don't know what to learn next. I want to learn something database side so that it will help me get a job. Can anyone please guide me as to what to learn next in order to get a job in US.

I usually dread questions like this, since there's never any telling what someone means from just their subject.

But this one kind of makes sense. I suppose the answer is really dependent on what kind of environment you want to get into when you're developing. Database-side, you're looking at a few companies - Oracle, Microsoft, IBM and MySQL AB all have exams on their database solutions, though those seem to be more targeted to DBAs. (That said, I've taken and passed a few of IBM's DB2 exams, and am slowly prepping for MySQL.)

MySQL, imho, is probably the easiest to get practice with and learn, but that may just be me. Hope that helps at least as a start.
This will take every ounce of my mental strength! All for a tiny ad:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
