Hi people I have a bachelor degree in computer science and the OCA Java SE7. I am preparing for the OCP and I am planning to achieve all the
certifications all the way up to the Architect. My problem is I dont have enough information to build a career plan. In medicine
for example, the profiles are clearly defined: the general practitioner, the cardiologist, the ophthalmologist..etc but in computer programming
there are a lot of options.
What are all the java profiles requested in the job market ? what should I study with Java ? what are the most reliable resources on the web to
watch the evolution of the industry ? By the way my current practical skills are: HTML/CSS, advanced PHP/MySQL, Javascript, XML, AJAX
and Linux administration basics.

Bachir,
The Architect certification is meant for people with experience. Which implies you are asking about a long term plan.

The career path varies by company but it generally starts the same. You are a junior developer, gain experience and become a senior developer. After that you have choices. You can specialize and become an expert in something. You can become a consultant. You can become a manager. There are many choices. As you start working, you'll see what you like and start to develop interests.

For Java, Spring and Hibernate are very common. There are also client side jobs. CHeck a job board to see what skills are requested in your area. My biggest advice is to focus on your first job rather than plotting your whole career path.
