Hi Sanjay,
It depends upon what technologies u have been working on.I would in any case suggest tht multiple certifications would do good, if u were to get certified in one,get hold of a job and then go in for another certification while at work bcos it happens to be work ex + certifications.certifications would definitely improve ur career prospectus.
try mailing ur resume to wicliff@hotmail.com,jayesh_microcell@hotmail.com
Best of luck!!!

Unfortunately this is not the right forum to address concerns like this. I am moving this discussion to Jobs discussion forum where you will find better answers.

Certifications never hurt - it depends on your experience to back those up.
I'd keep working on things in your spare time while you're doing the job hunt, build up some work experience with the skills as you work towards certifications, so you can present it as a whole package to a potential employer. Otherwise, you might look to some like a paper-cert rather than someone who knows what they're doing.
And best of luck to you.
