Hi,

I am a guy with more than five years of corporate exp in automation testing using TCL (tool command language) including JAVA (more than 1.5 years). I am preparing for OCAJP SE 7 now. Will this certification help me attain some attention of employers along with my TCL for automation requirements? I am also familiar with PERL language.

Definitely, your OCAJP will draw attention of employers. But remember, certification is just certification, it's not all.

An extra certification is a nice add-on on your cv and might even make the difference between 2 candidates which are in balance for a job. But other skills will/may be considered more important.
