I have 5yr experience with MS technologies. I worked with .NET web applications for 2yrs. One month back, I got passionate towards Java and started reading on it. Last week I passed SCJP2 exam with 85%. For this exam I practiced using IBM WSAD 5.1.1 Trial edition tool. After this exam I am planning for SCWCD and SCBCD. I am planning my career as a solution architect.
My question is how difficult is it to get a job in J2EE with no experience but having done all the three certification and with strong technical knowledge. First of all will I be called for Interview?? Pls. adviceďż˝.

Quite difficult.
Heck, it's difficult getting a job in the current market if you DO have the experience...

I was looking for a job from August 2002 to June 2003, getting a parttime job in February 2003 (unemployment agency requires people to keep hunting when they get a parttime job when they were on fulltime unemployment money, plus I wanted a fulltime job).

I've been working in Java fulltime since 1999, fulltime in IT since 1997.

Consider the poster's name in light of the fact that JavaRanch is an international forum. You can be an R. J. Chatterjee in Dallas or Owen MacDugal in Bangalore, but the odds are decent that you're talking to a person who's living in a place where the Java labor market's hot and breaking in is relatively easy.

Which does point out that if you're asking for career advice, please let people know where you intend to work! It's not one-size-fits-all, y'know.

I am planning for Job Search in Bangalore India....And from my study of job market in past two days the J2EE market is hot out there in big concerns like Wipro.....but everyone is asking for experienced professionals. Does any company look into your Certifications and give some credit on it??
 
Ever since I found this suit I've felt strange new needs. And a tiny ad:
