Hello friends,

I reside in Hyderabad, I have completed my B.TECH in Computer Science in 2005, i have worked as a webmaster for one year, then last year, i joined j2ee course and completed training in May, after completion, i am not getting enough calls for job interviews, should i go for java certifications(SCJP) for better job prospects or wait for some more time?

My e-mail id is: aijaz.seo@gmail.com
My Skills are: Servlets, JSP, JSTL, EJB 3.0, Struts 1.1

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

IT market in india is not what it was probably last year, or the year before that, people who got jobs at that time got nice fat pay packages, as well as tons of interview calls.
SCJP helps no doubt if not for the certification, but for the nice java basics that you will learn from the preparation.
Best of luck.

As a fresher, it is handy to have one or two certifications done, but don't get overly obsessed with certifications. Certifications alone are not going to bring your career advancement. Put more emphasis on gaining solid practical experience, acquiring good soft skills, ability to market your personal services, etc.

You guys are lucky in India that training courses are available and must be cheap as well, I learned J2EE myself, and still learning... read books and play with tools.
