Hi everybody,
I want to change my career(i am 30) after 3 and half years of
non-programming job.This has nothing to do with s/w exp.
Although i have exposure to different tools 9x,NT,
Unix apart from java,servlet,jdbc.Needless to say i have no work exp.I am located
in delhi,India.I did my M.Tech from IIT Delhi in 1993.My major is in Mechanical
(B.Engineering ..not from IIT)...
Please tell me whether clearing SCJP will be enough to get a good s/w job
anywhere on earth.Everybody need experienced people.Please guide me.
Will SCJP PLUS SERVLET will do the needful???regards..NM

May be you should ask this in the Jobs forum which is frequented by recruiters and employers. Their opinion perhaps will be the closest to reality.
