Hi all,
I have completed SCJP 1.4 with 88% last december. I had wanted to work in Java technology in my company but i was fored to work in mainframes due to "business requirements" of the company. So am planning to shift to another company where i can get a java project. For that am planning to do SCMAD. Is it really worth doing this certification for getting me a job in a new company here in India?? I have selected to do this certification because i have little interest in mobile applications.Please help me....
Thanks and Regards,

If you have a small interest in mobile technology, why bother? You'd better take some other certifications like SCJD, SCWCD or SCBCD. Or is the company you are going to join working on J2ME? Then you should think about this certification.

Hope my suggestion helps...

IMHO SCWCD/SCBCD will help you more in getting a Java job than SCMAD, unless you are seeking a position that involves J2ME programming.
