hello friends,
sometimes I doubt, whether my choice of giving scjp is correct or not. there r a lot of people with lots of such certificate and still searching for good jobs. then what is the use? ( dont take me wrong please)
well I am not strongly opposing it, but well I am not able to decide how will it help me getting a job. I'm just a fresh computer engineering graduate, and have done a lot of projects in java. will this scjp also help in higher studies in usa.
I would be greatful to u, have any of u also went through the same phase that I am passing, plz help me.

Getting the certificate doesn't guarantee but will aid in getting a job.

Hi Gaurav,
As parmeet has rightly put it. A certificate will not essentially
guarantee a job in this slowdown in the market. Ofcourse, you
need to have experience to get a good job. You already have
done some projects so taking up a job would be better. In my
opinion since you already have put in efforts so why not
take a go at the SCJP. Once you would be in job, believe
me, finding time to study would be difficult. I am saying these
from my personal experience.
Ravindra Mohan.

IMHO, no. I doubt that any university considers professional certifications when selecting students.
