Hi All,
I would to know as to how your score in JCP would affect your chances in securing a Java job. Will the prospective employer give weight to your score or is it enough if you are a JCP ? Please let me know if any one would like to share their thougts with me. I have a score of 85 %. Is it a good score to impress prospective employers ? By the way i would also like to know job oppurtunities in CA , USA for a java beginner with a BS in Computer science.
Thanx to all,
Rajesh

Hi, I am also a scjp and looking for a job.
From what I have understood from the various threads in javaranch;
SCJP opens some doors for you ; ie. gets you an interview call at the most . Whether you get a job or not depends on how much work experience you have, how impressive you were in the interview etc.
If your recruiter is a scjp, he is more likely to understand how much hardwork scjp connotes
Even otherwise, a good score is always a plus in anything.
In India, where i live, a scjp gets you an entry level position, which doesnt pay much anyway
I am open to correction, if any of the thing I have said is wrong
Anyway, best of luck.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
