No, certifications don't get you jobs. You get yourself jobs.

Think of certifications as a great way to learn a technology, and a boost for your career. It helps on your resume, but it is only a little piece of your resume. You still have to answer their questions to their liking to get a job. Good Luck

Congrats on the great score.

But if you have succesfully done cerifications e.g. SCJP, Web Developer and
EJB one, I thing these will help you to get a job.

Inform strongly that you have passed these tests. It will give a good overview of you.
I agree. Here's the link:
