Hi, gus:
Since the market is too bad, do you think the certification is useful to get the job? How about java certification or oracle 8i DBA? I am a student right now. I have no experence in IT area. Please give me some advice.

Thanks
ellen

This topic has been discussed to death. Search in this forum under "certification" or "SCJP" and you'll find plenty of postings.

If you're a student without experience, a certification may be worth considering, in order to help get your foot in the door.

ellen,
Java certification will help to get you to the interview. But then it's up to you to prove them that they need you badly.
On the other hand, if you have an Oracle DBA certificate, you are in a different position: Oracle certification is much more involving (there 4 or 5 exams, AFAIC) than Java's one, so having Oracle gives you more credibility, provided you have some experience. Besides, database administration and software development are two different kinds of job.
