Your score really makes no difference. If you can show a prospective employer that you're certified, that you know Java, and that you've built working Java programs (a portfolio is really valuable here), then you stand a good chance of at least getting highly considered. If you passed with a super-high score, then you may want to use the score in your cover letter; otherwise, leave it out.

Good luck.

By the way, many people who visit JavaRanch also work for a living, so you may want to be a little more patient when asking for a response...

Inorder for java certifications to add a serious boost to your job prospects you would definitely need to persue other java certifications as well. The way java certifications are designed the SCJP is the first step towards other certifications and therefore only tests the basics(Compared to MS certifications which are very broad). So it is better to add to the SCJP with some more certifcations to emphasize your java knowledge, since the job market seems to demand a lot more knowledge(both depth and breadth) even from a junior programmer. If you dont have the neccary resources to persue other certifcations then it would be very good idea to have some kind of Java project like Jeff sugested.

Good Luck.
