The JAVA market appears to be down right now. I know in Minneapolis, we advertised one position and received just a huge number of resumes with a number of candidates out of work for a few months. Generic Java Development jobs seem to have vanished. There still are good jobs available for specific expertise in MQ series, WCS , EJB and WebSphere Administration. It may be a year before the Java market improves. ================================================= On your resume, you may want to include an objective to indicate whether you are interested in a lead role or a developer role. If developer, then server side Java or Client Side Java or both. Also highligting experience for skills in niche areas helps.
If you want to be valued for your certification, I would put it at the top rather than the bottom of the resume. Putting education and certification at the bottom is a good strategy if those areas are weak. I would also include a ten-word or so summary in large font and bold, saying something like "3 years Java programming experience, SCJ2P" and whatever else you want to add. I would make sure you have your resume posted on all the job boards. Resume rabbit is good for that. Also, I would answer adds in the local paper and send out direct resumes to employers. Unfortunately, unless your background is very strong, it is difficult to obtain employment at this time.
You might want to make another copy of the resume where you consolidate your work experience. The duration is small and many employers are looking for people who have been in their previous jobs for long periods of time. I would still keep both copies but create the new one.

I would also list the year and school for your BS in Computer Science. That information should be included unless there is a strong reason to hide it. Even though it may be a school in India that no one has heard of, it should be included, as it makes it more clear that you have a degree that can be verified.
