I am a SCJP with no previous job experience,
Infact, I am totally new in the field of I.T.
Recently, I got a job offer.
The problem is that most of the current projects of that company are in Assembly language, C, C++ and probably (atleast on the face of it) involves systems programming. I am worried that this kind of experience may not carry much market value in the current object oriented and java oriented job market.
Also, I had been thinking of going in for the SCJD.
If I join the job, the SCJD will have to be prolonged( as I will be able to spend less time on the SCJD assignment) or maybe even postponed.
Could anyone tell me, which of the two would be more advantageous for me?
Should I aim to complete the Scjd within two months and then search for a pure java job? OR Is the job experience more useful?
