Hi all, I tried Googling this and looking for information about this on here, but I didn't have any luck.  I apologize if this is the wrong forum for these questions.

Anyway, I have been wanting to take the OCMJEA for a few years now and finally decided that I should go for it.  But I would like to know if anyone who has received this certification has gotten any benefit out of it with regard to their career?  And could I possibly get more bang for my buck/time pursuing some other sort of certification (e.g. Spring)?

I do think that having an OCMJEA cert would help me at my current position, but I'm trying to think beyond.

Well it's hard to say what's the ROI is not knowing your background. Honestly you are the only one who can judge whether OCMJEA is beneficial or not.

For me personally, pursuing the cert is really demonstrating to (future) employers that I can "design" and follow standards (eg UML) and among others. I knew I can do it but as a so-called junior team member, those tasks aren't assigned to me, hence ... you know the story.
