I am so fustrated in my job search. I do not have a BA or a BS. I have 2 Associate Degrees in Computer Programming and Internet Technologies.
I am certified in Java 2 and Visual Basic. I have written a couple of servlets for my company I work for now, but it is not full time developement.
I feel like I understand programming and really do enjoy it, but I cannot find a full time programming job.
My questions are:
Is my lack of a BA or BS making potential employeers over look me?
Should I pursue more certifications? I am studying for the CIW, but I am not sure if it would help.
I guess I am just looking to see what companies are looking for, so I can adjust what I need to do.

I wouldn't attribute your failure to find a job to anything negative about your credentials. There are a lot of experienced people with good background who cannot find employment right now. In my opinion, certifications will help you both in finding a job when the market improves and in your subsequent career.
